Development boards reinforce support for 32-bit MCUs

STMicroelectronics has extended its support for the STM32 range of 32-bit Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) with the introduction of the STM32 Nucleo-144 series of low-cost, compact development boards. These boards offer increased connectivity that enables customers to develop applications using any STM32 MCUs.

6U VME board features i7 processor

A 6U VME single board computer based on the 4th Generation Intel Core™ i7 processor has been announced by Acromag. Called the XVME-6510, the board features Intel 8-Series QM87 PCH chipset, two ruggedised SODIMMs with up to 16Gbyte of DDR3L removable memory and 32Gbyte of flash.

Industry-leading power density, performance and reliability

Altera has expanded its Enpirion power products portfolio with a 6A PowerSoC DC-DC step-down converter that is claimed to be a full-featured, highly integrated, and fully tested PowerSoC with integrated inductor. The PowerSoC (EN6362QI) is said to be the first in a new generation of low-VIN power products that offer industry-leading power density while improving performance in the areas of conversion efficiency, output voltage accuracy, load transient response, and output voltage ripple.

High performance MCUs

STMicroelectronics’ STM32F767/769 microcontrollers (MCUs) bring ARM Cortex-M7 processing power and efficiency to applications such as portable or wearable consumer devices, smart-building and industrial controllers, smart appliances, and personal or point-of-care medical equipment.

100V MOSFET H-bridge reduces board space

The DMHC10H170SFJ introduced by Diodes Incorporated is a 100V full H-bridge incorporating dual N-channel and P-channel MOSFETs into a 5 x 4.5mm DFN5045 package. This configuration reduces component count and board space, which is especially important in applications that require multiple devices, such as the array of ultrasonic transducers used for industrial inspection systems or found in marine sonar equipment. Other common applications include driving DC motors in 48V telecom fans and other inductive loads such as the coils in wireless charging pads.

Cypress adds wafer sales to F-RAM and nvSRAM portfolio

Cypress Semiconductor has added wafer products to its industry-leading nonvolatile random access memory (NVRAM) portfolio. Cypress’s NVRAM portfolio, which includes Ferroelectric-RAM (F-RAM) and nonvolatile static RAM (nvSRAM) devices, is claimed to offer reliable protection of critical data during a power failure. Many mission-critical applications that require the benefits of F-RAM and nvSRAM also require bare die for small or unique packaging options.

Clear monochrome display, indoors and out

Industrial LCD manufacturer KOE has introduced the TX14D201MM2BAA, a 5.7inch monochrome TFT display module. It features QVGA resolution with a 4:3 aspect ratio, excellent optical performance and a high brightness LED backlight for use in electric vehicle charging stations, ticketing systems, vending machines and process instrumentation.

Low power MCU doubles battery life

Read-intensive enterprise SAS SSD

Toshiba has announced the availability of the PX04SL series, a very read-intensive enterprise SAS solid state drive (SSD). The PX04SL series is optimised for read-intensive application workloads such as data warehousing, web servers, media streaming and video on demand.

Integrated battery management IC monitors up to 256 cells in series

Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced what it claims to be the industry’s first integrated battery monitor and protector to measure 16 battery cells at one time. The bq76PL455A-Q1 provides highly accurate cell-voltage monitoring for large batteries with up to 256 cells in a series and can enable more intelligent battery management in electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and grid energy storage systems.

Small MOSFETs reduce losses in load switching

The DMP1022UFDF and DMP2021UFDF P-Channel MOSFETs from Diodes Incorporated are designed for load switching in high-efficiency battery management of portable consumer electronics such as tablets, smartphones, ultrabooks, and for applications in the Internet of Things. The devices are rated at 12V and 20V respectively.

Improved charging performance of smart mobile devices

Power Integrations has released the InnoSwitch-CP range of off-line CV/CC flyback switching ICs. The devices incorporate a constant power output profile which, when paired with an adaptive-voltage protocol such as Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 or USB-PD, is claimed to permit smart mobile device makers to optimise charging time across a range of products, all while minimising overall thermal management and battery charging system cost.

World's first 4-ball WLCSP EEPROM with multiple I2C addresses

STMicroelectronics has extended its M24 serial EEPROM family with four devices that are compatible with the industry-standard 4-ball WLCSP (Wafer Level Chip Scale Package) footprint. The new additions are also claimed to connect two or more 4-pin EEPROMs to the same I2C bus with an individual I2C address hard-wired internally, an industry first. This allows dedicated devices for specific purposes, such as front/rear camera modules, on the same bus.
