Smallest MCU with built-in pre-driver for motor control

Toshiba has launched the TMPM37AFSQG microcontroller (MCU) as the latest addition to its ARM Cortex-M3-based TX03 series. The IC is claimed to be the world’s smallest vector control MCU to incorporate an original coprocessor, the Vector Engine Plus, and a pre-driver to implement brushless DC motor control.

I/O-intensive FPGAs for cost-sensitive applications

Xilinx has released the Spartan-7; an FPGA range that it claims will deliver I/O intensive devices for cost-sensitive applications. The range is suitable for use in automotive, consumer, industrial IoT, data centre, wired and wireless communications, and portable medical applications.

Intelligent power modules enable efficient, reliable appliances

STMicroelectronics has released 600V, second generation intelligent SLIMM power modules that are claimed to enhance the efficiency and reliability of domestic and industrial appliances, such as motor drives in compressors, pumps and fans. Targeting drives working up to 20kHz in hard-switching circuits, ST’s modules are said to enable an increase in energy efficiency over application power outputs from 300W to 3kW.

Simplifying GaN transistor circuit design

GaN Systems has announced its GS66508T-EVBHB Half-Bridge Evaluation Board which demonstrates the performance of its GaN enhancement mode power semiconductors in real power circuits. The GS66508T-EVBHB Eval Board can be configured into any half bridge-based topology.

Compact AC/DC power supplies

Farnell element14 has launched the RAC48/OF series from Recom, a range of compact AC/DC open frame power supplies with universal AC inputs - from 90 to 265Vac - and fully protected DC outputs that are trimmable to compensate for voltage drops on the output connections.

Low noise, low power, high speed 24-bit SAR ADC

Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2380-24, a no latency 24-bit 2Msps successive approximation register (SAR) analogue-to-digital converter (ADC). Operating from a 2.5V supply, the device is said to feature a ±Vref fully differential input range with Vref ranging from 2.5 to 5.1V. The LTC2380- 24 consumes 28mW and is claimed to achieve ±3.5ppm INL maximum and no missing codes at 24 bits.

Dual output step-down controller with sub-milliohm DCR sensing and digital power system management

Linear Technology has announced the LTC3884, a dual output current mode synchronous step-down DC/DC controller with programmable loop compensation and I²C-based PMBus interface. The device is claimed to enable the use of low DC resistance (DCR) power inductors by enhancing the signal-to-noise ratio of the current sense signal to maximise converter efficiency and increase power density.

Vandal-resistant thick touchscreen glass

Varitronix has announced an enhancement to its range of High-Resolution Touch Panel TFT Displays. The development includes the addition of a Cover Lens with glass thickness up to 15mm through which the Capacitive Touch Screen can still be operated.

Latest MULTI IDE for Linux debugging software released

Green Hills Software has announced the latest release of its MULTI Integrated Development Environment for Linux. With this release, Green Hills Software continues to evolve its software development suite with features designed to increase developer productivity and speed time-to-market.

Ultra-low power 16-bit flash MCU from Epson

Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) has announced that it has developed and begun shipping samples of S1C17W18, a 16-bit flash microcontroller (MCU) from its S1C17W00 series. The MCU is said to operate at 1.2V and is capable of driving 352 segment displays while achieving 40% less current consumption in operating mode than previous 16-bit MCUs from the S1C17W00 series.

Additional output voltages extend power module series

TDK has announced an extension to its PH-A280 series of high voltage input DC/DC converters. Capable of operating from 200 to 425Vdc, the 3.3, 15 and 28V output power modules are suitable for use in data centres, telecommunications and renewable energy applications utilising a 380V nominal high voltage DC bus.

Low power high contrast 1.7m dot OLED micro-display

Astute Electronics has announced the availability of MICROOLED’s MDP01, a 1.7million dot full-colour OLED micro-display which is suitable for applications where clear, crisp, sharp image quality is required while minimising cost, power consumption and space.
