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.

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.

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.

Synchronous buck switching regulator

The ISL8002B synchronous buck switching regulator from Intersil delivers an output of up to 2A from an input supply ranging from 2.7V to 5.5V. With a switching frequency of 2MHz, the part is said to offer superior transient response, while key features such as programmable soft start and output tracking and sequencing of FPGAs and microprocessors, increase system reliability for point of load conversion.

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.

Toshiba launches 4500V 1200A IEGT module

The MG1200GXH1US61 PMI has been launched by Toshiba Electronics Europe. It is a high-current 4500V, 1200A power module for use in rail traction, industrial motor control, renewable energy systems and electricity transmission and distribution applications.

Converter offers longer battery run times

ams has introduced a 1A synchronous buck converter with a wide input voltage range, high efficiency and low stand-by current. The device is said to suit designs powered by a single cell lithium-ion battery.

Flexible fanout buffer

IDT has expanded its portfolio of programmable timing devices with the introduction of the 5P11xx family of low-jitter universal output fanout buffers.

Cypress samples 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with ECC

Cypress Semiconductor has begun sampling 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with Error-Correcting Code (ECC), which enables them to provide higher levels of data reliability, without the need for additional error correction chips. As a result designs can be simplified and board space reduced.

High accuracy magnetostrictive sensing device

MTS Sensors has introduced a new high performance magnetostrictive position sensor, that uses the company’s Temposonics technology. The ET sensor has been designed for use in applications required to operate in high temperature environments. It can deliver up to 0.005mm resolution when used in combination with a suitable controller.

Cypress offers fully-certified, small-form-factor Bluetooth Smart module

Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a Bluetooth Smart module that has been designed to provide an end-to-end Bluetooth Low Energy solution. The new, small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC module, based on Cypress’s PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution, includes Bluetooth 4.1 qualification and worldwide regulatory certification, simplifying design and cutting time to market.
