The 50th anniversary of man’s landing on the moon was celebrated roughly a year ago. But space adventure is not just about putting a man in space. The conquest of space has prompted human beings to devise missions that go beyond the confines of our own solar system. In order to be successful, all of them have combined the talent and work of engineers from different branches of engineering.
First of all, my apologies to our international readers for the local nature of this post. That said, you may still be interested in reading about how, in a nation associated with parties, holidays and the siesta, there are companies offering highly-skilled technical work to young people upon completion of their studies. And more importantly, to know what they think.
Once again Christmas comes to an end and the New Year of 2018 starts to set in. And for those of us within the telecommunications sector it is important to know that this new year 2018 is forecasted to bring us more change, development and larger growth.
The application of power electronics to communications devices has to do with the processing of the electrical input power using semiconductor devices and reactive elements.
Thus, the raw input power is processed according to a control input that conditions the output power. This conditioning can be carried out by DC/DC converters – that convert the DC input voltage into another DC voltage with different magnitude and possibly isolated or even inverted polarity or through AC/DC converters that produce DC voltage from an AC input voltage.
