congatec has introduced an application ready IoT gateway system. Highly flexible it is easily customisable for rapid field deployment. In terms of processing performance and software integration it is able to host up to 8 wireless antennas that can be connected to 3 mini PCI Express slots and 6 internal USB based slots for wireless and wired connectivity modules.

Buck regulator generates 0 to 14.5V VOUT

The LTC3623 from Linear Technology is a ±5A high efficiency, current mode synchronous buck regulator whose output is adjustable from 14.5V to 0V. The regulator uses a 50µA current reference, combined with a single resistor, to set the output voltage for all of the regulators.

36V op amp features low voltage noise precision

The LT6018, a precision op amp from Linear Technology, features 30nV peak to peak 0.1Hz to 10Hz noise and 50µV max input offset voltage. Designed especially for low frequency noise applications, the LT6018 has a 1/f corner frequency of less than 1Hz. The low input offset voltage is maintained over the operating temperature range and the input common mode range. Open loop gain is typically 142dB, enabling the device to achieve less than 1ppm nonlinearity.

SIL4 certification for ControlSafe rail safety platform

Safety Integrity Level 4 (SIL4) certification has been issued for the Artesyn ControlSafe platform. The platform is said to be one of the first embedded computing systems to use commercial off-the-shelf components to create a fail-safe and fault-tolerant computing platform for a range of train control and rail signalling applications.

µModule regulator with a common heat sink

The LTM4631, a dual 10A or single 20A µModule step-down regulator from Linear Technology, is available in a 1.91mm LGA package measuring 16 x 16mm. The LTM4631 can be placed on a PCB, close to its load, such as an FPGA, whilst sharing one heat sink.

Buck-boost regulators for battery powered portables

The ISL91127 and ISL91128 buck-boost regulators from Intersil feature 4.5A switches, 96% efficiency, and a compact footprint suitable for system power or powering the peripherals in battery-operated devices. They are said to offer the industry’s lowest quiescent current of 30µA for superior light load efficiency.

Eight-channel DC/DCs for multi-rail systems

The LTC3374A from Linear Technology is a highly integrated general-purpose power management solution for systems requiring multiple low voltage power supplies. The device can be configured to provide two to eight independent regulated outputs with 15 possible output current configurations and is suitable for a variety of multichannel applications, including industrial, automotive and communications systems.
