Triac and quadrac design innovations can simplify LED lighting control

Triacs are at the heart of dimming controls for LED lighting. Triacs used in dimmers have normally been characterised and specified for incandescent lamp loads, which have high current ratings for both steady-state conditions and initial high in-rush currents, as well as very high end-of-life surge current when a filament ruptures.

LEDs have much lower steady-state current than incandescents, and their initial turn-on current can be much higher for a few ...

Magnetic sensing in washing machines

Like many modern appliances, washing machines today use a variety of sensors to ensure proper, safe, and energy-efficient operation. Littelfuse's magnetic sensor products help make these appliances as reliable and efficient as ever.

How magnetic sensors are helping to drive changes in appliance designs

From measuring electricity usage to turning off lights via remote control, smart technology is part of many of today's consumer electronic devices. Within the home appliance industry, sensors are playing a significant role in how consumers interact with smart appliances like washing machines, dishwashers and refrigerators. Temperature sensing and control are among the most important and well-established sensor functions in modern home appliances.

Analysis to reduce time to find bugs by up to 50%

If you're spending more than 50% of your verification effort in debug, you're not alone. For many design, verification, and embedded software engineers as well as engineers verifying complex standard protocols, debug is the primary bottleneck in verification.

Automotive Circuit Protection

The designers of automotive electronics face many technical challenges during the system design process, including designing methods of protection against a variety of electrical hazards.

Safety standards in the ARM ecosystem

Safety is an increasingly important topic for system developers and there is an ever widening range of relevant safety standards that system developers need to be aware of. The increasing use of electronics in cars, medical equipment and the Internet of Things (IoT) has led to new safety standards and new demands on developers of hardware and software.

Virtualisation and the Internet of Things

Industrial control devices have been around for years. The initial devices were manufactured with a personality, a business logic that was already built in when they left the manufacturing plant to perform one fixed function (and nothing else). They were deployed for specific tasks such as controlling industrial equipment, electricity generation, power plants, trains, planes, or automobiles.

New life for embedded systems and the Internet of Things

The Internet of Things (IoT) is no longer a fanciful vision. It is very much with us, in everything from factory automation to on-demand entertainment. Yet by most accounts, the full potential of interconnected systems and intelligent devices for changing the way we work and live has barely been tapped.
