OSAKA, Japan - Thursday, October 1st 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Panasonic Corporation today announced that it has developed a blue-violet semiconductor laser operating at output power of 4.5 W, which is 1.5 times higher than that of the conventional one even at 60ºC, the maximum operating temperature for lasers in general. It can also oscillate with the high energy conversion efficiency, which is 1.2 times higher than that of conventional lasers. This has been made possible by Panasonic’s unique double heat flow packaging technology that improves the heat dissipation.

PARIS - Friday, October 2nd 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- BNP Paribas is running a trial of OT MOTION CODE™ with 1000 French customers. The dynamic security code solution replaces the 3-digit static code located on the back of the card, used to confirm online payments.

OSAKA, Japan - Thursday, October 1st 2015 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Panasonic Corporation today announced that it developed gallium nitride (GaN) diodes that can not only operate at a high current that is four times greater than that tolerated by conventional silicon carbide (SiC) diodes*1, but also operate at low voltages by virtue of their low turn-on voltage. Production of the new diodes was made possible via a newly developed hybrid structure composed of separately embedded structure comprised of a low-voltage unit and a high-current-capable unit, in preparation for high voltage conditions.

Conventional silicon (Si) diodes are limited with regard to reducing switching losses. On the other hand, diodes based on SiC, a compound that is considered as a promising next-generation power semiconductor, as well as GaN, require an increased chip area to achieve high-current operations, thus posing limitations on the reduction of switching losses and size owing to in ...
