A Power-on-Package (PoP) ChiP-set announced by Vicor includes modular current multipliers (MCMs) for high performance GPU, CPU and ASIC (XPU) processors. The PoP MCMs multiply current and divide voltage from a 48V source in close proximity to XPUs to enable higher levels of XPU performance. Power distribution efficiency and system […]
Allegro MicroSystems Europe announces the automotive version of its A5932. The sensorless BLDC controller is a three-phase BLDC motor controller that is targeted at high-power automotive fan applications with very low vibration and audible noise requirements. MOSFET gate driver outputs permit motor currents that can be scaled to fit the […]
An AEC-Q100-qualified version of ON Semiconductor’s 2.1Mpixel CMOS image sensor, the AR0237, has been released. It is aimed at the OEM-fitted dashboard cameras (dash cams) or before-market in-car DVR market.
Demand for safety cameras is rising, as more insurance companies offer financial incentives, prompting car manufacturers to offer dash cams as standard […]
Analog Devices announces the Power by Linear LTM4662, a dual 15A or single 30A step-down µModule regulator in a BGA package. It has an exposed stacked inductor for improved thermal dissipation properties, adds Analog Devices.
Supporting components, such as the MOSFETs and DC/DC controller are over-moulded and the device is housed […]
Analog Devices has collaborated with Microsemi to offer what the two companies believe is the first high power evaluation board for half-bridge SiC power modules with up to 1200V and 50A at 200kHz switching frequency.
The EV-MS4135PL1Z-UI isolated board improves design reliability while also reducing the need to create additional prototypes, […]
The latest in the InnoSwitch family of integrated switchers has been announced by Power Integrations. InnoSwitch3-Pro enables digital micro-stepping of voltage and current for precise battery charge control and eliminates DC/DC post-regulators, says the company.
The configurable off-line CV/CC and CP flyback switcher IC is capable of delivering up to 65W […]
Two field effect transistor (FET) drivers have been added to the Texas Instruments (TI) GaN power portfolio. They are intended to create more efficient, higher-performing designs in speed-critical applications such as light detection and ranging (LIDAR) and 5G radio-frequency (RF) envelope tracking, explains TI.
The LMG1020 and LMG1210 can deliver switching […]
An active clamp flyback chipset and a 6.0A three-level buck battery charger from Texas Instruments have been released by Texas Instruments.
First, the UCC28780 active clamp flyback controller operates at up to 1.0MHz and the UCC24612 synchronous rectifier controller is claimed to halve the size of power supplies in AC/DC adapters […]
Continuing its strategy to meet the industry-wide demand for increased power density and improved efficiency, Diodes
Incorporated has introduced the ZXGD3113 synchronous rectifier controller.
When coupled with a MOSFET, the pairing can be used to replace lossy Schottky rectifiers in power supplies based on a flyback or resonant converter topology. The ZXGD3113 […]
Bringing capacitive-sensing capabilities to cost-sensitive applications, Texas Instruments (TI) has expanded its MSP430 microcontroller (MCU) family with CapTIvate technology.
Developers can use the new MSP430FR2512 and MSP430FR2522 MCUs with integrated capacitive touch to add up to 16 buttons as well as proximity sensing capability in various applications including industrial systems, home […]
