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.

Load switch safeguards USB ports

Diodes has announced a single channel load switch, which it says ensures complete protection from interconnects subject to the risk of surges and short circuits. Optimised for regular USB and other hot swap applications, the device is provided in a small form factor SOT25 package, offering a footprint of only 9mm2.

Step up DC/DC converter boosts efficiency

Diodes has announced the PAM2401 – a low voltage, 1MHz step up DC/DC converter designed to meet the heightened efficiency demands of portable products such as battery backups, cordless phones and GPS receivers.

D/A converter drives 10mA and 1000pF loads

The LTC2668-16 from Linear Technology is a 16channel, 16bit voltage output D/A converter with multiple SoftSpan outputs that can be independently configured for one of five selectable unipolar and bipolar output ranges up to ±10V.
