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.

RS connectivity devices for EVs

RS Components has introduced a portfolio of “high-power” connectors from Amphenol, designed for connecting power cables used with electric vehicle (EV) drive systems.

150°C conductive polymer hybrid capacitor portfolio in THT format

Panasonic Industry Europe is expanding its conductive polymer hybrid aluminium electrolytic capacitor range with its ZF series products, rated at 1,000 hours at 150°C, enabling devices to support cutting-edge power train and engine-mounted applications in the automotive sector. Besides the high temperature rating, ZF Series hybrid capacitors are the first available in Through Hole Technology (THT).

Solving ground-shift issues in SMPS

Every time a power MOSFET is switched on or off in a switched-mode power supply (SMPS), parasitic inductances cause ground shifts. This can lead to uncontrolled switching of gate driver ICs. In extreme cases, this results in electrical overloading of power MOSFETs and malfunctioning of the SMPS.

Automotive grade quad 1A step-down regulators + LDO

Analog Devices has unveiled the Power by Linear ADP5138, an automotive qualified, high efficiency, 3.2MHz synchronous quad output buck regulator, that incorporates a fixed frequency, peak current mode, PWM control architecture that reduces conducted and radiated emissions.

Integrated 2.5A backup power manager

Analog Devices has unveiled the Power by Linear LTC4041, a complete supercapacitor backup power management system for 2.9V to 5.5V supply rails that must be kept active during a main power failure.
