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.

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.

Customisable flash loaders

Open flash loader capabilities have been added to SEGGER’s J-Link, J-Trace and Flasher offerings allowing silicon vendors and end users to support new target devices.

Highest power density claimed for AC/DC supplies

Ultra small AC/DC power supplies from Qualstar are said to provide the highest power density amongst commercially available devices at their rated output of 160W. The supplies, available from Luso Electronics, are said to be suitable for broadcast, storage and network products and for applications which require ‘significant power’ within a very small footprint.

Demodulator improves receiver performance

A high linearity I/Q demodulator, the LTC5586, from Linear Technology supports 5G wireless infrastructure equipment, such as digital predistortion correction receivers for base stations, microwave backhaul, as well as other broadband receiver applications.

Active bridge technology for Ethernet-based IoT devices

The first member of Fairchild’s next-generation GreenBridge active bridge quad MOSFET technology has been launched. The FDMQ8205 is said to suit Power Over Ethernet applications (POE), such as security cameras, wireless access points, LED lighting and other powered devices.

Demonstration platform for BLE sensor node

A demonstration platform for a Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) sensor node has been released by Microchip. The platform comes complete with the low power BTLC1000 module, a SMART SAM L21 Cortex-M0+ MCU, Bosch sensor technology and software. It also comes with source code, hardware design files, user guide and Android application source code that enable designers to bring their products to market faster.

Sensor to cloud developer kit accelerates IoT design

A prototyping vehicle designed to help engineers to connect wireless sensor nodes to mobile devices and the cloud has been introduced by Silicon Labs. The Thunderboard React developer kit features a battery powered, sensor rich demonstration board with Bluetooth low energy technology and an ARM Cortex-M4 processor for IoT connectivity, along with open source design files and software for mobile apps running on Android and iOS devices.

Wi-Fi antennas designed for 5GHz

Two SMD antennas designed for the 802.11a,b,g,n,ac wireless standard have been announced by Antenova. These antennas are designed to meet the needs of high bandwidth applications emerging in the consumer entertainment sector – including set-top boxes, smart TVs, wearable electronics, and network and content streaming devices.
