Buck controller eliminates intermediate power conversion

The ISL8117, from Intersil, is a 60V synchronous step-down PWM buck controller that can bypass the intermediate step-down conversion stage traditionally employed in industrial applications. Its low duty cycle (40ns minimum on time) enables the direct step-down conversion from 48V to a 1V point-of-load. This makes it possible for designers to reduce system complexity and solution cost in industrial, factory automation, medical and communications infrastructure applications.

HV-IPD for sine-wave motor control

Toshiba has launched the TPD4204F, a high voltage intelligent power device that enables the sine-wave control of brushless DC electric motors. The device can be used in a range of low power industrial fans and pumps, as well as in white goods such as washing machines, dishwashers and fan units.

Programmable clock generator with integrated crystal

IDT has introduced new versions of its VersaClock 5 programmable clock generators, featuring built-in crystals for a simpler, cost-effective approach to electronic systems timing. The 5P49V5933 and 5P49V5935, which come in 4 x 4mm packages, are said to reduce board space and cost through the integration of a crystal.

Power management chipset helps optimise dead time

Texas Instruments has introduced a power management chipset with intelligent digital control and a body-diode sensing feature to optimise secondary-side synchronous rectification in next-generation AC/DC and isolated DC/DC power supplies.

Ultra flexible touch displays

Varitronix announced a range of ultra-flexible LCDs that accept a curve with a radius as tight as 12.5cm. The displays are manufactured in sizes said to be close to that of a credit card and are suitable for use in industrial, commercial, automotive and medical applications.

Navigate through digital power system design

Version 5.2 of Intersil's PowerNavigator software is now available. The package, which can be downloaded free of charge, helps system designers to configure, validate and monitor systems featuring the company's PMBus enabled digital power products.

CoolMOS delivers 50% improved switching losses

Infineon has launched a range of CoolMOS C7 series superjunction MOSFETs. The 600V series offers a 50% reduction in turn-off losses compared to the CoolMOS CP, offering a GaN-like level of performance in PFC, TTF and other hard-switching topologies.

Thinline supercapacitors for IoT Devices

Looking to address the size, weight and cost challenges of designing thin, disposable electronic IoT devices, CAP-XX has launched its Thinline series of single-cell supercapacitors. Thinline devices can be just 0.6mm thick.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module for IoT applications

Alpha Micro has introduced the u-blox ODIN-W262, a compact stand-alone multiradio module designed to provide Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for a range of IoT applications. The ODIN-W262 can be used in retail devices and medical applications, for which the module complies with the IEC 60601-1-2 standard.

Simplifying digital power conversion

Helping designers to maximise the advantages of digital power conversion, including high efficiency under load conditions, enhanced safety, rich diagnostics and convenient network connectivity, STMicroelectronics has released the STNRG range of digital controllers.

Reliable and compact inverter

Infineon has launched its latest Intelligent Power Module (IPM). The MIPAQ Pro provides a range of scalable and compact inverter designs to be implemented in wind, solar and industrial drive applications.

Industry's smallest photorelay package

Toshiba has added six products to its lineup of photorelays. Housed in a VSON4 package that measures 1.5 x 2.5 x 1.3mm - the industry's smallest for photocoupler products – the latest additions to the TLP34xx series offer low off-state capacitance, low on-state resistance and high voltage support.

Time-lag fuse with enhanced overcurrent and surge capability

Littelfuse has introduced the 835 Series Fuse, a time-lag, ceramic body ac fuse. The 835 Series is the first fuse from Littelfuse to combine an unparalleled I2t value, a maximum interrupting rating of 1500A at 250V ac and 1.5kA 8/20µs surge withstand capability in a 5 x 20mm footprint. Current ratings of 5A, 6.3A and 8A are available.

Industry's fastest 16bit A/D converter

Texas Instruments has announced the ADS54J60, which is claimed to be the industry's first 16bit 1Gsample/s A/D converter and the first to achieve a signal to noise ratio of more than 70dBFS at 1Gsample/s. The device is suited for use in defence and aerospace, test and measurement, and communication infrastructure applications.

Compact, accurate LDO regulator

Diodes Incorporated has introduced the AP7344 low dropout regulator, which delivers dual 300mA outputs with high 1% voltage accuracy from a 1.7 to 5.25V input voltage range. With a small footprint X2-DFN1612-8 package, this regulator is suited for dense PCB layouts found in compact, battery-powered, consumer products such as smart phones, tablets and cameras.

Security sensors produced in paper packages

Looking to meet the needs of logistics companies and the retail sector for new ways to protect shipments, prevent forgeries and ensure that products remain unspoiled during transportation, the ROPAS project has developed a paper based electronic security tag.

New Li-ion battery charger from TI

Texas Instruments (TI) has produced a Li-ion battery charger that facilitates faster and cooler charging by combining narrow-voltage DC/DC power path management with their proprietary MaxCharge technology to support input voltages up to 14V while providing charge current up to 5A.
