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 from Analog Devices

Analog Devices has unveiled the Power by Linear LTM8002, a step-down DC/DC µModule (power module) regulator with a 40V input voltage rating (42V abs max) and 2.5A of continuous (3.5A peak) output current.

PCIM 2018 - Soft-PGS, NASBIS and passive components from Panasonic

Panasonic will be showing its Soft-PGS at PCIM, which it says is the next step for the Pyrolytic Highly Oriented Graphite Sheet (PGS) portfolio and “one of the thinnest thermal solutions in the world”. Its thermal conductivity of 1950 W/m K is five times higher than common materials like copper, Panasonic adds.

Increased system performance in closed-loop control

Microchip has released two families of new 8-bit microcontrollers (MCUs). The PIC18 Q10 and ATtiny1607 feature multiple intelligent Core Independent Peripherals (CIPs) that aim to simplify development and enable a quick response time to system events.
