New package for RF power transistors

A new package platform is being rolled out across Ampleon’s LDMOS and GaN product portfolio. More than a dozen variants of the SOT502 and SOT539 platforms are said to be in development.

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.

Bluetooth LE modules and evaluation kits

Alpha Micro has added Bluetooth Low Energy devices to its product portfolio. The NINA-B111 and B112 modules from u-blox, as well as the EVK-NINA-B1 evaluation kit, are compliant with the Bluetooth 4.2 wireless standard and have been created to shorten the development time for IoT designs.

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.

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.

ITX format board is ‘ideal base’ for scalable system

A compact embedded computing platform from Adlink features 6th generation Intel Core i7/i5/i3 processors and Intel’s Q170/H110 chipsets. According to the supplier, the AmITX-SL-G is a space saving, entry level embedded board with higher processing speeds and faster graphics rendering. The board can also support up to 32Gbyte of dual channel non ECC DDR4 memory at 1867MHz.

AC to PoL development kit

An AC to point-of-load development kit from Vicor is said to enable power system designers to quickly evaluate a complete power system solution. The kit consists of an AC Front End chassis, which can deliver up to 400W via an isolated and regulated distribution bus voltage, and a point-of-load chassis (PoL), which generates three independent regulated PoL outputs. According to Vicor, the kits include all necessary ancillary components, including a bus hold up capacitor assembly and an AC line cord.
