Low cost, low risk memory

A low cost, low risk memory solution from Microchip is said to offer unlimited endurance and safe data storage at power loss. Called EERAM, the device is a standalone SRAM with a shadow EEPROM back-up that retains the SRAM’s contents when system power is lost.

DC/DC converters for surface mount applications

Three ranges of surface mount (SMD) DC/DC converters rated at 1, 3 and 6W of output power with single and dual outputs have been unveiled by XP Power. According to the company, the converters offer higher efficiency and extended operating temperature range when compared to existing models.

True measurement of RF signal power

A high frequency, wideband RMS power detector from Linear Technology has a high dynamic range. According to the company, the LTC5596 provides accurate, true power measurement of RF and microwave signals independent of modulation and waveforms.

650V integrated half bridge for smaller power adaptors

Dialog Semiconductor has developed a monolithic 650V GaN half bridge which integrates a high side and low side power switch together with drivers, level shifting, protection as well as analogue and logic components. The power device is said to switch at more than 50V/ns.

IoT Wi-Fi module for Ethernet devices

What is said to be the first embedded enterprise-grade 5G (802.11ac) Wi-Fi IoT module for Ethernet devices, the Lantronix PremierWave 2050, has been unveiled by Alpha Micro. According to the company, the series of modules is suitable for mission critical enterprise applications that demand uninterrupted 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity.

RF solutions introduces ZULU2 radio modules

RF Solutions has launched the ZULU2 range featuring three radio modules which supersede the existing ZULU range. According to the company, the modules no longer require external components to provide a complete RF Solution.

Battery charger handles lead acid and Li-ion

An integrated, high voltage synchronous step down battery charger controller from Linear Technology uses temperature compensated three and four stage algorithms to charge 12V and 24V lead acid batteries. The part can also charge a multicell lithium-based battery stack with float voltages near to the input supply.

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.
