Accelerating adoption of wireless power in compact, low-power applications

Integrated Device Technology (IDT) has introduced a wireless power reference kit claimed to make integrating wireless charging into compact electronics easy and affordable. The IDT Qi-based transmitter and receiver reference kit targets designs requiring 3W or less, such as smartwatches, headphones, health and fitness trackers and portable medical devices.

PTC introduces latest version of its ThingWorx IoT platform

PTC has released ThingWorx 7, the latest version of its Internet of Things (IoT) platform. Robust, scalable, and easy to use, ThingWorx is said to enable designers to develop and deploy smart, connected IoT solutions. The platform is said to contain one of the most complete sets of integrated IoT-specific development tools and capabilities, making feature-rich solution development simple while accelerating time-to-market.

Innovative modular power solution

ABB has launched a scalable power distribution and protection solution for use in data centre applications. ABB’s MNS-Up solution integrates uninterrupted power supply (UPS) and switchgear technologies into a single, modular system, which is claimed to lower footprint by up to 30%, increase uptime, and reduce maintenance costs.

Two-in-one MOSFETs for load switching in mobile devices

Toshiba has introduced the SSM6L61NU and SSM6N61NU two-in-one MOSFETs.These MOSFETs, are housed in compact SOT-1118 (UDFN6) packages, and are claimed to feature high heat dissipation and low drain-source ON-resistance. These features are said to make them suitable for use as power management switches and DC/DC converters in mobile devices, including smartphones and tablets. The SSM6L61NU and SSM6N61NU can also be used in battery management applications and for load switching in applications with USB Type-C interfaces.

PCB package moves to v16.1

Altium has updated its PCB design platform to version 16.1. The update is said to add features that enhance design documentation and high speed design workflows.

Industry’s first PXI express DMM for more accurate, smarter test systems

National Instruments (NI) has released the NI PXIe-4081 7½-digit high-performance Digital Multimeter (DMM) and 1.8MS/s isolated digitiser. The NI PXIe-4081 is said to offer engineers the flexibility, resolution and isolation needed to tackle challenging applications that require smarter test systems in industries ranging from consumer electronics to aerospace and defence.

HMI Panel for remote monitoring, data acquisition and control

Arbor has released the IOT-500, an HMI panel engineered to provide the highest level of flexibility and reliability to support automation and system optimisation requirements. The IOT-500 is based on the Dual Core MTK MT2601 industrial chipset from MediaTek, and features support for the Android v5.1 operating system that combines robust processing power, an open operating system and a flexible hardware configuration.

Step down switching regulator

A 1.5A, 42V input synchronous step down switching regulator from Linear Technology delivers 93% efficiency when switching at 2MHz. This, says the developer, enables designers to avoid noise sensitive frequency bands.

2W DC/DC converter family

The NXE2 series of 2W surface mounted DC/DC converters from Murata Power Solutions is said to be footprint compatible with similar 1 and 2W devices available on the market. Measuring 12.5 x 4.4 x 10.4mm, devices in the NXE2 series are said to provide more power output from the same space as competitive parts.

New wide input voltage automotive buck regulators

Allegro MicroSystems Europe has developed two new adjustable high frequency DC-DC step-down switching regulators, both come with an integrated high-side power MOSFET. The A8586 provides up to 3.5 A output current; while the A8587 has output current of up to 2.0 A.

Power supply range targets rugged networked applications

Diamond Systems has extended its line of Jupiter-MM-5000 high-efficiency, high-precision DC/DC power supply modules. The latest, intelligent members of this rugged power supply family are claimed to offer up to 218W of 5, 12, and 3.3Vdc power in either the compact PC/104 or the PC/104-Plus form factor and an advanced system controller for complete software control of all power supply functions.

IDT expands power portfolio with dual-phase high-performance digital power controller

Integrated Device Technology (IDT) has introduced a high-performance dual-phase digital power controller that it says can help designers optimise, monitor and control high-power supply systems. The second-generation ZSPM1363 digital PWM controller is claimed to deliver high performance and transient response, suiting it for addressing the growing demands in the telecommunications, server, storage, FPGA and infrastructure markets.

Axial metallised polyester and polypropylene film capacitors

Components Bureau has introduced the JFG series of axial lead, metallised polyester and polypropylene film capacitors from jb Capacitors to the UK market. The compact capacitors are said to feature high-temperature resistance, large capacity and good self-healing properties, they are suitable for use in instrument applications and DC and AC circuits of household equipment, as well as the fractional frequency circuit of acoustic systems.

Performance oscilloscope probes tackle smaller, faster designs

Tektronix has introduced the P7700 series of TriMode probes for use with Tektronix performance oscilloscopes. Claimed to offer up to 20GHz bandwidth, the probes are said to ease the challenges designers face when debugging circuits found in the latest mobile and enterprise designs by minimising probe loading, improving access to smaller, more-densely packed test locations and lowering overall cost of ownership.
