Subscribers on the verge of receiving first-ever linear UHD delivery to US homes

LUXEMBOURG - Wednesday, November 9th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- SES S.A. (Euronext Paris:SESG) (LuxX:SESG) today announced that four more US cable operators are testing 4K content delivery across SES’s fully-managed Ultra HD platform, in advance of breakthrough Ultra HD subscriber trials set to begin later this year.

SES has struck new Ultra HD trial agreements with Marquette-Adams in Wisconsin, Buckeye Broadband in Ohio and Southeast Michigan, Service Electric Cable TV in Pennsylvania, and enTouch Systems in Texas, and now has eight operators currently assessing the satellite-based UHD solution aimed at accelerating 4K delivery to homes across America. The first wave of trials kicked off this past summer with Cable America in Missouri, Golden West Telecommunications in South Dakota, MTC Cable in New York, and Sjoberg’s Cable TV in Minnesota.

-Contributing to space and energy savings of power conversion units-

MUNICH, Germany - Monday, November 7th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Panasonic Corporation today announced that it will start mass production of a high-speed gate driver (AN34092B) optimized for driving its GaN power transistor X-GaN in November 2016. The company will also start mass production of two types of X-GaN (PGA26E07BA and PGA26E19BA) and provide solutions in combination with high-speed gate drivers.

GaN is one of the next generation semiconductor compounds that can achieve space and energy savings when applied to transistors used in various power units. A gate driver is required to drive a transistor; however, general gate drivers for conventional silicon (Si) transistors cannot exploit the potential of GaN transistors since the gate structure of GaN transistors is different from that of Si transistors.

The new high-speed gate driver (AN34092B) helps our X-GaN easily ... Read more »
