Glitch-free attenuators

IDT has announced that it has expanded its RF silicon range with the addition of two glitch-free digital step attenuators (DSAs), as well as a voltage variable attenuator (VVA). These products are designed for use in wireless infrastructure, point-to-point microwave, satellite communications systems and general purpose communication infrastructure applications.

IDT claims that the 6bit F1912 and 7bit F1956 DSAs reduce transient 'glitches' during most significant ...

Extension to PCB design tool

Altium has released MCAD Co-Designer: Solidworks, an extension for Altium Designer that provides integrated design data and a managed design revision environment between electrical and mechanical design teams working in Altium Designer and Solidworks respectively.

Buck controller eliminates intermediate power conversion

The ISL8117, from Intersil, is a 60V synchronous step-down PWM buck controller that can bypass the intermediate step-down conversion stage traditionally employed in industrial applications. Its low duty cycle (40ns minimum on time) enables the direct step-down conversion from 48V to a 1V point-of-load. This makes it possible for designers to reduce system complexity and solution cost in industrial, factory automation, medical and communications infrastructure applications.

HV-IPD for sine-wave motor control

Toshiba has launched the TPD4204F, a high voltage intelligent power device that enables the sine-wave control of brushless DC electric motors. The device can be used in a range of low power industrial fans and pumps, as well as in white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers and fan units.

Programmable clock generator with integrated crystal

IDT has introduced new versions of its VersaClock 5 programmable clock generators, featuring built-in crystals for a simpler, cost-effective approach to electronic systems timing. The 5P49V5933 and 5P49V5935, which come in 4 x 4mm packages, are said to reduce board space and cost through the integration of a crystal.

Power management chipset helps optimise dead time

Texas Instruments has introduced a power management chipset with intelligent digital control and a body-diode sensing feature to optimise secondary-side synchronous rectification in next-generation AC/DC and isolated DC/DC power supplies.

Ultra flexible touch displays

Varitronix announced a range of ultra-flexible LCDs that accept a curve with a radius as tight as 12.5cm. The displays are manufactured in sizes said to be close to that of a credit card and are suitable for use in industrial, commercial, automotive and medical applications.

Navigate through digital power system design

Version 5.2 of Intersil's PowerNavigator software is now available. The package, which can be downloaded free of charge, helps system designers to configure, validate and monitor systems featuring the company's PMBus enabled digital power products.

CoolMOS delivers 50% improved switching losses

Infineon has launched a range of CoolMOS C7 series superjunction MOSFETs. The 600V series offers a 50% reduction in turn-off losses compared to the CoolMOS CP, offering a GaN-like level of performance in PFC, TTF and other hard-switching topologies.

Thinline supercapacitors for IoT Devices

Looking to address the size, weight and cost challenges of designing thin, disposable electronic IoT devices, CAP-XX has launched its Thinline series of single-cell supercapacitors. Thinline devices can be just 0.6mm thick.

Wide input and noise immunity DC/DC converters

The DDC15 and DDC30 series of low profile 15W and 30W DIN rail format DC-DC converters have been announced by XP Power. The single output converters accept inputs in the range from 9 to 36V DC, suiting a 12 or 24V DC nominal input. The range is designed to offer additional voltages in DIN rail power systems, provide isolated outputs and noise immunity or support battery powered or battery backed applications.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module for IoT applications

Alpha Micro has introduced the u-blox ODIN-W262, a compact stand-alone multiradio module designed to provide Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for a range of IoT applications. The ODIN-W262 can be used in retail devices and medical applications, for which the module complies with the IEC 60601-1-2 standard.

Simplifying digital power conversion

Helping designers to maximise the advantages of digital power conversion, including high efficiency under load conditions, enhanced safety, rich diagnostics and convenient network connectivity, STMicroelectronics has released the STNRG range of digital controllers.
