It is said to withstand reverse input and reverse output-to-input voltages without reverse current flow.

Resolving I²C bus address conflicts?

Linear Technology has announced the LTC4316, LTC4317 and LTC4318 address translators, said to enable the hardwired address of one or more I²C or SMBus slave devices to be translated to a different address. This allows slaves with the same hardwired address to coexist on the same bus. Discrete resistors allow the new address to be selected without software programming and 127 address translations are available.

MOSFETs enhance buck converter power density

Diodes has introduced the DMC1028UFDB complementary MOSFET pair. Aimed at increasing the power density of DC/DC converters, the MOSFET pair integrates an N-channel and a P-channel MOSFET in a DFN2020 package. The design is customised for point-of-load converters that step down from 3.3V to 1V for core voltage supply to ASICs.

Industry's smallest 20A power module

Exar has introduced the XR79120, a 20A single output, synchronous step-down power module in a 12 x 14 x 4mm package. The XR79120 is claimed to offer greater than 93% peak efficiency and leverages constant on-time (COT) control architecture across a 4.5 to 22 VIN range. This allows single supply operation from industry standard 5, 12 and 19.6V rails.

'Best-in-class' two and four-port VNAs

Anritsu has expanded its ShockLine range of vector network analysers (VNAs) with the introduction of the Performance ShockLine MS46500B series. Said to deliver best-in-class dynamic range and maximum output power, the MS46500B is suited to designing and manufacturing mobile network equipment, mobile devices, automotive cables, high-speed data interconnects and system integration components.

Converters offer wide input range in a compact package

XP Power has launched the ITQ series of 6W DC/DC converters. Packaged in a compact SIP 8-pin format, with a footprint of 21.9 x 11.1 x 9.2mm, the ITQ series takes up less board space giving designers more room to add features or the ability to reduce end product size.

High efficiency in hard switching applications

Infineon has extended its medium voltage MOSFET portfolio with Optimise 300 V, which is said to enable energy efficient solutions in applications such as telecom systems, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS), motor control, industrial power supplies and DC/AC inverters.

Buck converter raises portable efficiency

Diodes claims that its AP3403 step-down DC/DC converter achieves typical efficiencies greater than 95%, helping to extend the battery life of low voltage portable products. The synchronous PWM device drives a load of up to 600mA, with efficiency maintained through a configuration of external resistor, capacitor and inductor components.

Efficient PMIC halves input voltage

Dialog has released the DA9312, a power management IC suitable for applications supplied directly from dual cell (2S) stacked lithium battery packs or from input voltages range from 5.5 to 10.5V. It integrates three independent power supplies: two DC/DC buck regulators, each delivering up to 5A; and what is said to be the industry's first inductorless 10A power converter.

IO-link reference design kit speeds development

Linear Technology has introduced an IO-Link (IEC 61131-9) reference design kit, which includes the DC2228A eight-port IO-link master and DC2227A IO-Link device reference designs. With more than 2.19 million IO-Link nodes installed worldwide, the growing demand for larger networks is addressed by the new reference design kit, which reduces IC count, development costs and time to market.

Advanced wireless testing capability

Anritsu has announced the MT8821C, a radio communication analyser for research and development testing of mobile devices, such as smartphones, tablets and M2M modules, with the capability for supporting LTE-Advanced.

Extension to PCB design tool

Altium has released MCAD Co-Designer: Solidworks, an extension for Altium Designer that provides integrated design data and a managed design revision environment between electrical and mechanical design teams working in Altium Designer and Solidworks respectively.

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.
