first_imgA place in the semi-finals of this season’s FAI Cup remains up for grabs for Finn Harps and Avondale United as the two meet again at Finn Park on Wednesday to replay their quarter-final tie (kick-off 8.00pm).The two sides played out a 1-1 draw at Avondale Park on Sunday afternoon. After a scoreless first half, Michael Funston game Harps a 51st minute lead before Danny Long equalised for the hosts in the 77th minute.Despite earning the replay and bringing the Munster Senior League side back to Finn Park for a midweek game, Harps manager Ollie Horgan has warned the tie is far from over. “Sunday’s game saw two evenly matched teams and a draw was a fair result,” said Horgan. “The hot day and tempo of the game took a lot out of us and will need to recover quickly.“It is good to still be in the cup but Avondale won’t be any easier to try to beat in Ballybofey,” he continued, “especially with a few good fresh players to come back in for replay.”Horgan said that although Avondale are not a League of Ireland club, they would hold their own if they were a team competing in the same Division as Harps.“While Avondale aren’t a league club, they would compete comfortably in the First Division and accumulate a substantial amount of points. “They have loads of experience and play good football. Avondale will have a stronger team out for replay with their captain among others returning.“They were strong enough as they were on Sunday so we know it will be very difficult to try to get through,” he said.Harps, with home advantage, will be hoping to reach a first FAI Cup semi-final in fifteen years. Wednesday’s replay will be played to a finish on the night, with extra-time and penalties to decide the outcome if necessary.Damien McNulty and Sean McCarron are available again after missing Sunday’s game in Cork through suspension. However, Tommy McMonagle is out while Caoimhe Bonner is a doubt. AVONDALE ARE FROM DEAD YET, WARNS HARPS BOSS HORGAN AHEAD OF CUP REPLAY was last modified: September 15th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AVONDALE UTDBallybofeyfinn harpsFinn Parklast_img read more

ST and Biricha Digital Power cooperate to implement digital power supplies on STM32 MCUs

first_imgThe continuing development of low-cost, high-performance microcontrollers specifically aimed at intelligent power solutions has created new design possibilities. Taking advantage of this progress, STMicroelectronics and Biricha Digital Power have developed a workshop to show power-supply engineers why – and how – to quickly move to a digital implementation.The workshop, aimed at analog PSU (Power Supply Unit) designers and embedded-system engineers who need to build high-performance, stable digital power supplies and Digital PFCs (Power Factor Corrections), will be based on a complementary portfolio of tailored hardware, software, tools, labs and detailed training documentation. This includes the STM32F334 product line (with its high resolution timer – 217ps), a member of ST’s STM32 family of more than 800 MCUs covering the full spectrum from ultra-low power to high performance and supporting ecosystem, combined with Biricha’s Power Supply and PFC design software.Key sessions will demonstrate how to quickly design digital power supplies and power factor correction from scratch, and how to design stable digital control loops for both voltage and current mode DC/DC and PFC applications. Workshop participants will get a chance to design, code, implement, and test several digital power supplies.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Syslogic launches AI rail computer at InnoTransNext ADI to show mastery of digital-to-physical interface at Electronica 2018last_img read more
