Micrel has released a high-performance low-dropout CMOS regulator (LDO) featuring a dropout of 100mV at 300mA. The MAQ5300 comes in a 6-pin, 2 x 2mm DFN package and is suited for space-constrained and high-reliability functions in automotive and industrial applications.

T591 Series feature 50V offerings

KEMET has announced extensions to its automotive grade polymer electrolytic capacitors. The T591 High Performance Automotive Grade Polymer Electrolytic Series is said to deliver stability and endurance under harsh humidity and temperature conditions. The new extensions include options up to 50V for both 12 and 24V power rails.

Stackable FPGA solution

The EMC2-7A board, from Sundance, can be used with commercial, industrial or automotive graded Artix-7 FPGAs and features 1Gbyte of DDR3 local storage, 32Mbyte of flash for storage/configurations and has 68x free differential I/O pins routed to a VITA57.1 FMC-LPC high-speed connector.

SSDs deliver leading edge performance and reliability

Swissbit has announced the launch of its next generation X-60m Series mSATA solid state drive (SSD). Compliant with the latest SATA III interface specification, the drives are said to deliver leading edge performance and reliability to industrial, network and communication and automotive applications.

IC for electronic throttle control

Toshiba has launched the TB9051FTG; a motor driver IC for DC brushed motors. While primarily targeted at vehicle engine applications, such as electronic throttle and valve control, it is also suitable for control of on-board systems operating at up to 5A, such as control of wing mirrors and locks for car boots.

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.

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.

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.

Time-lag fuse with enhanced overcurrent and surge capability

Littelfuse has introduced the 835 Series Fuse, a time-lag, ceramic body ac fuse. The 835 Series is the first fuse from Littelfuse to combine an unparalleled I2t value, a maximum interrupting rating of 1500A at 250V ac and 1.5kA 8/20µs surge withstand capability in a 5 x 20mm footprint. Current ratings of 5A, 6.3A and 8A are available.
