Power

Power electronics is a key element in the world of electronic design and engineering and electronic engineers need to have a thorough understanding of this area if they’re going to create successful products.

In this section, New Electronics keeps designers up to date with the latest developments in the power electronics market – everything from DC/DC converters to IGBTs to battery technology. In fact, New Electronics covers any power product that can go on a PCB.

µModule regulator ensures power availability under fault conditions

Linear Technology, which was recently acquired by Analog Devices, has unveiled the LTM4645, a 25A step-down µModule (power module) regulator that is able to current share multiple independent devices (N) where at least one LTM4645 is used as backup (+1) to ensure power availability if one device in this N+1 arrangement detects a fault and has to be disconnected.

Medically approved DC:DC converters

Gresham Power Electronics is making available two new series of DC-DC converters from Polytron Devices approved for use in medical applications including equipment and devices used in close proximity to patients.

µModule (power module) step-down regulator from Linear

Analog Devices, which recently acquired Linear Technology, has launched the LTM8065, a µModule (power module) step-down regulator with up to 40V input voltage (42V abs max), which can safely operate from unregulated or fluctuating 12V to 36V input supplies in noisy environments such as industrial robotics, test and measurement, medical, factory automation and avionics systems.

Buck regulator range extended

Vicor has extended its Cool-Power 48V ZVS 20A buck regulator portfolio with the addition of the PI3523-00-LGIZ (PI3523). The device is a member of the PI352x family, which features 20A solutions that complement the 10A 48VIN PI354x family, enabling scalable power options for 48V direct to point-of-load (PoL) applications.

AEC-Q101 Trench 9 MOSFETs from Nexperia

Nexperia has launched a series of Trench 9 power MOSFETs, targeted primarily at the automotive industry, which combine the company’s low voltage superjunction technology with its advanced packaging capability to deliver high performance and ruggedness.
