Family of maXTouch touchscreen controllers

The new family of maXTouch automotive-qualified touchscreen controllers from Microchip is designed for large-screen automotive human machine interface (HMI) designs. The technology brings multi-touch HMI to car drivers and passengers on screen sizes from 8 to 15in.

Libero SoC v11.8 software provides debugging capabilities

The latest version of Microsemi’s Libero SoC software – version 11.8, a comprehensive suite of FPGA design tools – has been released. In addition to the software release, which includes enhancements such as mixed language simulation, debugging capabilities and a new netlist viewer, the company is also introducing a free evaluation license enabling users to evaluate the company’s flash-based FPGAs and SoC FPGAs.

Buffered 18bit octal A/D converter

The LTC2358-18, an 18bit, 8channel simultaneous sampling successive approximation register (SAR) A/D converter from Linear Technology – now part of Analog Devices – features integrated picoamp input buffers.

Imec develops bifacial n-PERT solar cell

Bifacial n-PERT solar cells have been realised using an industrially-compatible process with a front-side conversion efficiency of 22.8%, according to Imec. Featuring a transparent backside and comparable front- and back contact schemes, bifacial solar cells capture light on both sides of the cell.

Oscilloscope range extended

Teledyne LeCroy has launched the HDO4000A, HDO6000A, HDO8000A, and MDA800A analogue and mixed-signal oscilloscopes, with bandwidths ranging from 200MHz to 1GHz.

Linear launches dual 10GHz differential amplifier

Linear Technology has launched the LTC6419, a dual 10GHz gain bandwidth product differential amplifier that comes with a very low input voltage noise density of 1.1nV/vHz, delivering an improved SNR performance for wideband signal amplification.

No-Opto flyback regulator operates at 150°C

The H-grade versions of the monolithic flyback regulator, the LT8304/-1, from Linear Technology operates for junction temperatures ranging from -40°C to 150°C. By sampling the isolated output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform, the part requires no opto-coupler or third winding for regulation.

140W buck-boost regulator is ‘best in class’

Vicor’s Cool-Power ZVS buck-boost regulator portfolio has been expanded with the addition of the PI3740. Delivering up to 140W and up to 8A with an efficiency of up to 96%, the device accepts inputs in the range from 8 to 60V DC, producing a regulated output ranging from 10 to 50V DC.

Circuit protection controller

A circuit protection controller from Linear Technology has been developed to ensure safe voltage and current levels for 2.5V to 60V electronics in battery-powered automotive, industrial and portable systems. According to the company, the LTC4368 replaces fuses, transient voltage suppressors and discrete circuitry, shielding electronics from overcurrent and over, under and reverse voltages.

ADL launches compact embedded PC

The compact ADLEPC-1500 embedded PC has been announced by ADL. At 3.4 x 3.2in, the ADLEPC-1500 is a full-feature embedded PC targeted for unmanned and industrial control systems, robotics, traffic management, surveillance and other applications.

No-opto flyback regulator delivers up to 15W

The LT8315 from Linear Technology is a high voltage monolithic flyback regulator that is said to simplify the design of an isolated DC/DC converter. By sampling the reflected isolated output voltage across the third winding on the power transformer, the part requires no opto-isolator or LT1431 for regulation.

Bluetooth low energy portfolio expanded

Delivering more available memory, Bluetooth 5-ready hardware, automotive qualification and an ultra-small wafer-chip-scale package option, the CC2640R2F and CC2640R2F-Q1 have been added to Texas Instruments’ scalable SimpleLink Bluetooth low energy CC264x wireless MCU family.

Quad SPI flash family extended

Cypress has added 64Mbit and 128Mbit devices to its family of NOR flash memories. Featuring a Quad Serial Peripheral Interface, the FL-L NOR parts are said to provide reliability and security for high-performance embedded systems such as ADAS, automotive clusters, industrial control and smart factory equipment.
