Semiconductors for Alternative Energy Technologies 2017: Opportunities and Markets Report – Research and Markets

May 15, 2017 - (Newswire)

-

Research and Markets has announced the addition of the "Semiconductors for Alternative Energy Technologies: Opportunities and Markets" report to their offering.

The high price of oil in the past few years has been a catalyst for development in other alternative energy sources. Semiconductor technology surrounding the alternative energy markets includes advanced IGBT design, optoelectronics, advanced power conversion ICs, digital signal processing, MCUs, and advanced mixed signal and analog circuits. This report discussed the potential for these products to be the next killer green application.

Renewable, alternative energy technologies continue to grab the attention of private industries and world governments. Semiconductors are used in these technologies to convert the energy or power to something functional, such as converting solar energy into electricity.
