POL DC/DC converters target embedded applications

Murata Power Solutions is targeting space constrained embedded applications with the OKDx-T/20-W12 and OKDx-T/25-W12 series point of Load (PoL) DC/DC converters. Designed to provide a combination of high power density and efficiency, the PMBus compatible digital power solution is intended to power CPUs, datacom/telecom systems, distributed bus architectures (DBA), programmable logic, and mixed voltage systems in the networking, computing/servers, telecom, and industrial ...

Lattice enables faster IEC61508 certification

Lattice Semiconductor is making available a new Functional Safety Design Flow solution based on the Lattice Diamond Design Tools.Certified by TÜV-Rheinland, the safety and quality testing organisation, the package is intended to help users by simplifying and speeding up the IEC61508 safety certification process for applications using Lattice FPGAs.

New precision clock module from IQD

New from IQD Frequency Products the IQCM-300 precision Clock Module has been designed to provide an easy to use holdover capability for GPS receivers. The device is housed in a 75mm square 28-pad metal surface mount package, and provides protection against deliberate GPS jamming and weather outages for applications including network base stations, clock sources, clock servers and IP backhaul.

New platform enables big data analytics at local base stations

A new supercomputing platform has been developed by Integrated Device Technology (IDT), working alongside NVIDIA and Orange Silicon Valley, that can analyse 4G to 5G base station bandwidth data in real time. By connecting clusters of low-power NVIDIA Tegra K1 mobile processors with IDT's RapidIO interconnect and timing technology, the platform is capable of delivering real-time data.

Network tester enhances 4G user experience

The TM500 network tester family is, according to Cobham Wireless, helping mobile operators to accelerate the deployment of high capacity networks. Already supporting key LTE-A features such as carrier aggregation of two and three component carriers, TDD/FDD carrier aggregation, and eICIC, the TM500 is now able to support Coordinated Multipoint transmission/reception (CoMP), a major feature of 3GPP LTE-A Release 11.

Transient voltage suppression range expanded

Bourns has made what it calls a significant expansion of its high voltage power transient voltage suppressor (PTVS) product line. Offering bidirectional port protection from 170V to 430V, the nine additional PTVS devices are designed to meet IEC 61000-4-5 8/20µs current surge requirements in a range of AC line and high power DC clamping applications, including exposed AC/DC power supplies in outdoor environments.

Eight port Ethernet switch is rugged

The NM10 from MEN is an unmanaged eight port Ethernet switch supplied in a compact box PC format and available in four standard configurations. In addition to 100Mbit or 1Gbit Ethernet interfaces, the switch is available with or without Power over Ethernet Plus functionality (PoE+).

Cree adds four 650V SiC diodes to its range

Four 650V SiC diodes have been added to Cree's portfolio. Developed in response to the power supply industry's demand for components with a nominal voltage rating higher than 600V, the Cree Z-Rec SiC Schottky diodes enable high efficiency power systems with improved reliability, simplicity and total cost.

MCUs control two BLDC motors simultaneously

Toshiba Electronics Europe has added two products to its range of ARM Cortex-M4F based MCUs. Both parts – the TMPM470FDFG and TMPM475FDFG – are targeted at energy efficient motor applications and incorporate vectoring technology. The TMPM475FDFG also features a CAN controller for specialist factory automation applications.

MOSFET drivers come in small packages

Microchip has announced what it says is the first in a new family of power MOSFET drivers. Featuring a new driver architecture for high speed operation, the MCP14A005X and MCP14A015X are available in SOT-23 and 2 x 2mm DFN packages. The small packaging enables higher power densities and smaller solutions, while the design targets fast transitions and short delay times that allow for responsive circuit operation.
