Texas Instruments has introduced two new 4V to 36V power modules that measure only 3.0 mm by 3.8 mm and require only two external components to operate. The efficiency of the 0.5A LMZM23600 and 1A LMZM23601 DC/DC buck converters is as high as 92% to minimize energy loss. The miniature MicroSiPTM package used reduces board space by 58%. These converters extend TI's power module portfolio and can be used for up to 1A performance-driven, space-constrained communications and industrial designs, including field transmitters, ultrasound scanners, and network security cameras.
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) recently introduced the ADRV9009, the industry's widest-bandwidth RF transceiver to expand its award-winning RadioVerseTM technology and design ecosystem. The transceiver provides designers with a single radio platform to accelerate 5G deployments, support 2G/3G/4G coverage, and simplify phased array radar designs. The ADRV9009 RF transceiver provides twice the bandwidth of previous generation devices (200 MHz) and can replace up to 20 devices, reducing power consumption in half and reducing package size by 60%. With industry-leading performance and smaller size, weight, and power consumption, the ADRV9009 transceiver meets the stringent antenna densities and expanded network capacity requirements of emerging 5G wireless infrastructure equipment and aerospace systems.
