Ascend Performance Materials Declares Force Majeure on HMD

Jaa

Ascend Performance Materials today announced it has declared force majeure on hexamethylene diamine (HMD).

As a result of events beyond the company’s control, manufacturing delays arose as it completed projects in December to expand both adiponitrile (ADN) and HMD. While the company’s ADN expansion is operational and meeting anticipated post-expansion rates, the HMD expansions have not yet met the company’s targeted production rates. As a result, the company must declare force majeure.

The company continues to be on force majeure for all Ascend polymers, compounds and fibers. At present, availability is reduced for all polymer products and HMD. The company will allocate existing products as prescribed in its contracts and is currently working with affected customers to minimize the impact to their respective businesses.

In its next major extension to support modern governance, Diligent announced today the launch of Secure File Sharing and Secure Meeting Workflow applications, as part of the Diligent Governance Cloud. These groundbreaking applications enable completely secure collaboration not only between board members and executives, but also reaching beyond the boardroom including auditors, regulators and other key third party stakeholders.

Transphorm Strengthens 900 V GaN Portfolio with Second FET25.6.2019 16:00:00 EESTTiedote

Transphorm Inc.—the leader in the design and manufacturing of the highest reliability high-voltage (HV) Gallium Nitride (GaN) semiconductors—today introduced its second 900 V FET, the Gen III TP90H050WS, enhancing the industry’s only 900 V GaN product line. These devices now enable three-phase industrial systems and higher voltage automotive electronics to leverage GaN’s speed, efficiency and power density. Further, the new FET’s platform is based on Transphorm’s 650 V predecessor, the only JEDEC- and AEC-Q101-qualified HV GaN technology. As such, system developers can design with confidence in its quality and reliability. The TP90H050WS has a typical on-resistance of 50 mOhm with a 1000 V transient rating, offered in a standard TO-247 package. The TP90H050WS can reach power levels of 8 kW in a typical half bridge while maintaining greater than 99 percent efficiencies.
