Navitas Semiconductor today announced a major technology breakthrough with the introduction of the industry’s first integrated half-bridge Gallium Nitride (GaN) Power IC. Half-bridge circuits are essential building blocks in the power electronics industry, used in everything from smartphone chargers and laptop adapters, to TVs, solar panels, data centers and electric vehicles. Navitas’ proprietary AllGaN half-bridge GaN Power IC with iDrive™ monolithically integrates all the functions required to deliver switching speeds of up to 2 MHz and enable a dramatic reduction in size, cost and weight while delivering faster charging. Previously, older silicon-based half-bridge components suffered from slow switching and parasitic power losses, slowing speeds by up to 30x. The first half-bridge GaN Power IC is the 650V-rated NV6250, in a 6x8mm QFN complete with dual drivers, level shifter, dual 560mOhm power FETs, bootstrap circuit and extensive protection features. Simple, low-power digital PWM inputs switch the half-bridge effortlessly at all frequencies, with significant ease-of-use and layout flexibility for the power system designer. The NV6250 is compatible with a wide range of analog and digital controllers from multiple IC partners. “This is an exciting time in the field of power electronics”, explained Navitas CEO Gene Sheridan. “High-voltage, high-speed power systems are now commercially viable and will enable a new class of high-density, fast-charging and lower-cost power systems. Since Navitas first demonstrated the half-bridge at APEC 2015, we have worked closely with partners to create the next generation of adapters and chargers with breakthrough size and efficiency. Our earlier announcement of the AllGaN platform’s JEDEC qualification demonstrates GaN’s maturity and readiness” Sheridan added. “The perennial difficulty with the half-bridge topology in high-frequency applications is how to power and control the high-side switch precisely, quickly and efficiently”, said Dr. Milan M. Jovanovic, Senior VP of R&D at Delta, the global leader in design and manufacturing of power supplies. “By integrating the critical level-shifting, bootstrap, and dual-drive functions, all in Gallium Nitride, major practical challenges have been solved, paving the way for MHz high-voltage power systems.” "MIT has studied the opportunities and the limitations in high-frequency power converters for more than a decade”, said Professor David Perreault, leader of the MIT Power Electronics Research Group. “One key bottleneck in many designs has been the limitation in high-speed level shifting and driving of high-side devices. The introduction of high-voltage GaN Power ICs with integrated, high-speed drivers has tremendous potential in many applications. Congratulations, Navitas!” Perreault concluded. Samples and demonstration boards for the NV6250 are available immediately to qualified customers, with production planned for Q2, 2017. Navitas will demonstrate the NV6250 and other AllGaN™ GaN Power ICs in a private suite at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) March 26th – 30th, 2017 in Tampa, Florida. Please contact Navitas (+1 ThinkGaNIC (+1-844-654-2642)) to book a review.

FILE - In this Nov. 19, 2016 file photo, Philippines' President Rodrigo Duterte attends a meeting between business leaders and heads of states of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation, APEC, during their annual forum in Lima, Peru. A human rights watchdog on Thursday, March 2, 2017 accused the police in the Philippines of falsifying evidence to justify unlawful killings in the government's war on drugs that has caused more than 7,000 deaths, and pointed the finger at President Rodrigo Duterte as being ultimately responsible. (AP Photo/Martin Mejia, File) MANILA, Philippines (AP) — A human rights watchdog on Thursday accused the police in the Philippines of falsifying evidence to justify unlawful killings in the government's war on drugs that has caused more than 7,000 deaths, and pointed the finger at President Rodrigo Duterte as being ultimately responsible. Human Rights Watch said in a report that Duterte and other senior officials instigated and incited the killings of drug suspects in a campaign that could amount to crimes against humanity. The United Nations should create an independent investigation to determine responsibility and ensure accountability, the report said. Presidential spokesman Ernesto Abella said none of the accusations have been proven in court. Until that happens, "such claims are mere hearsay," he said. National police spokesman Dionardo Carlos said Human Rights Watch should share its information with the police so any perpetrators can be charged in court. He said not all of the more than 7,000 deaths mentioned in the report are drug related. Carlos said police data showed that 2,500 people had been killed in police operations, while another 4,000 plus deaths were still being investigated, of which 680 were drug related. Murder charges involving 1,330 victims have been filed with prosecutors or courts, but the details were not known. The Human Rights Watch report said police have repeatedly carried out extrajudicial killings of drug suspects, then falsely claimed self-defense, and planted guns, spent bullets or drugs on the bodies. "Our investigations into the Philippine drug war found that police routinely kill drug suspects in cold blood and then cover up their crime by planting drugs and guns at the scene," said Peter Bouckaert, emergencies director at Human Rights Watch and author of the report. "President Duterte's role in these killings makes him ultimately responsible for the deaths of thousands." The report said masked gunmen taking part in killings appeared to be working closely with the police, casting doubt on government claims that vigilantes or rival gangs are behind majority of the killings. It said in several instances it investigated, suspects in police custody were later found dead and classified by police as "found bodies" or "deaths under investigation." The report draws heavily on interviews in metropolitan Manila with 28 family members of victims, witnesses to police killings, journalists and human rights activists. It also references initial police reports of killings, which Human Rights Watch said its field research consistently contradicted. Duterte barred the 170,000-strong national police from his anti-drug crackdown a few weeks ago after two anti-narcotics officers were implicated in the killing of a South Korean businessman in an extortion scandal that allegedly used the crackdown as a cover. He announced Tuesday that selected policemen will return to the anti-drug campaign but that the main anti-narcotics agency will continue to supervise operations.

Their presentations emphasized that digitalization is the new engine of the global economy. Mr. Zhang's story highlighted the success of digital platforms as an enabler of entrepreneurship, and as proof that thriving digital trade has created an unprecedented opportunity for SMEs to achieve overseas expansion. Ms. Wang emphasized that digital trade platforms bring new opportunities for SMEs to expand into overseas markets and that digitalization is rapidly integrating smaller economies into one large global economy that makes foreign market expansion, what was once an unthinkable possibility for SMEs, into a reality. In conclusion, the digital platform strategy is becoming an indispensable tool for SMEs to use to develop their businesses, and it's a decisive factor for SMEs to enter overseas markets successfully. Johnny Zhang is the winner of DHgate's Global Dream Partner Project, which was a campaign run by DHgate to identify the most motivated and talented entrepreneurs running businesses on their platform. Johnny's brand, called ETMAXTER, sells their own models of consumer electronics products, headphones, phone chargers and phone cables.

BEIJING, Feb. 24, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- DHgate, the APEC Business Advisory Council (ABAC) China, and ABAC Brunei announce the launch of the APEC CBET boot camp in Brunei. The APEC CBET boot camp is an upgraded version of the APEC CBET capacity building program, and is designed to specifically serve SMEs in the ASEAN region with training and resources for upgrading their businesses to a cross-border e-commerce centric model. China, as the leader in global digital trade, and DHgate, as the leader in cross-border e-commerce, aim to share best practices through online and offline training with ASEAN SMEs. The goal of the APEC CBET boot camp is to cultivate more talent in the cross-border e-commerce industry and to realize the upgrade of training in the industry (see more below). There is a lot of room for improvement regarding the lack of awareness among SMEs of the opportunities presented by the trend of digitalization. As a result, many SMEs are not in a position where they are prepared to transform their businesses to a digital model. They have not been educated about the available digital platforms and technologies, nor do they have the skills to correctly utilize them. These factors prevent SMEs from realizing the upgrade of their business model. The necessary steps that an SME must take to participate in global digital trade: 1. The transition in mind-set of SME owners and operators from a traditional business to a digital business. 2. The involvement and participation of decision makers and employees to acquire the skills and professional knowledge to run and operate a business with a digital model. 3. To realize the integration and transformation of their business model through the combination of online and offline trade through digital trade platforms. The APEC CBET boot camp will be funded and provided by the government of Brunei. DHgate will provide mentors and professional resources to transform Brunei into the center of e-commerce in the ASEAN region. The training will start as a one day class and in late 2017 be upgraded to a 3 month class. In addition to classroom training sessions, the boot camp will also provide students with both online and offline hands on experience and guidance. A special zone on DHgate.com will be launched for mentors and students to engage in discussion and form an online community. The CBET boot camp will observe the unique needs of local businesses and will provide localized classes in order for students to receive the best support to start or upgrade their businesses. At the end of every 3 month class cycle, DHgate and ABAC Brunei will select star students and provide them with a series of entrepreneurship incubation resources, including: DHgate.com is the first to market and the biggest B2B transactional cross-border e-commerce marketplace in China, aiming to provide global buyers with quality products at competitive prices.
