42V, 4A Synchronous Step-Down Silent Switcher Needs Only 2.5µA of Quiescent Current

The LT8614 is a step-down regulator featuring Silent Switcher architecture that is designed to minimize EMI/EMC emissions while delivering high efficiency at frequencies up to 3MHz. Assembled in a 3mm × 4mm QFN, the monolithic construction with integrated power switches and inclusion of all necessary circuitry yields a solution with a minimal PCB footprint. An ultralow 2.5µA quiescent current - with the output in full regulation - enables applications requiring highest efficiency at very small load currents. Its 3.4V to 42V input voltage range makes it ideal for medical, automotive and industrial applications. In conjunction with Arrow Electronics Ltd.

SCHURTER Introduces Hospital Grade V-Lock Cordsets

V-Lock cordsets protect against unintended disconnection of medical equipment. SCHURTER expands on its standard range of V-Lock power cords to include two types designed to ensure patient safety in critical medical and dental applications. The plug end of the cordset is stamped with a green dot, indicating that it meets the rigors of UL 817 testing. The solid pin construction and extra-safe wiring are visible through the plug's transparent material.

Smallest 14-Bit, 4.5Msps SAR ADC Integrates Precision Reference in 8mm² TSOT-23 Package

The LTC2314-14 is a 14-bit, 4.5Msps, serial sampling A/D converter that draws only 6.2mA from a wide range analogue supply adjustable from 2.7V to 5.25V. It contains an integrated bandgap and reference buffer which provide a low cost, high performance (20ppm/°C max) and space saving applications solution. This device achieves outstanding AC performance of 77dB SINAD and –85dB THD while sampling a 500kHz input frequency. The extremely high sample rate-to-power ratio makes the LTC2314-14 ideal for compact, low power, high speed systems including portable medical devices, communications systems and battery-operated systems.
