, reducing the in-residence coursework to fourteen days while adding approximately four days of pre-course work (prerequisites) to be accomplished at home station.
also manufactures and markets the King Koil range in the Middle East and India.
A very effective alternative to DFMC
is the direct formic acid fuel cell (DFAFC) technology, with five to six times higher power densities.
The new OpenPDK Coalition and the DFMC
are important to our business, and we expect to see significant return on our investment in these efforts," says Philippe Magarshack, Group Vice-President, Technology Research and Development STMicroelectronics.
