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 (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.

Compact single output power supplies provide up to 300W

Power specialist, Powersolve, has announced a series of compact, single output AC-DC converters that have been designed to provide up to 300W across a wide operating temperature range of -30° to +85°C. The seven model PSY300 series power supplies are open PCB units with a 3 x 5in footprint.

CoolMOS P7 platform to come in a SOT-223 package

The recently launched CoolMO P7 platform from Infineon is expanding to include a SOT-223 package. The device has been developed as a one-to-one drop-in replacement for DPAK and is therefore fully compatible with a typical DPAK footprint.

High input voltage DC/DC converter range launched

A range of high voltage input DC/DC converters from Powerbox is intended for use in microgrid, data centre and industrial applications. The devices are available in four power ratings – 150, 300, 600 and 750W – and in quarter, half and full-brick formats.

Bidirectional TVS diode arrays with lower standoff voltages

Littelfuse has introduced 80A discrete bidirectional transient voltage suppression (TVS) diode arrays as the latest addition to its SP11xx series TVS diode arrays. The SP1103C series is said to offer circuit designers lower standoff voltage options for protecting lower voltage power buses from electrostatic discharge (ESD) damage.
