Texas Instruments (NASDAQ: TXN) has announced the introduction of two wide input voltage synchronous SIMPLE SWITCHER® DC/DC step-down regulators in an ultra-compact Hot RodTM QFN package. The highly integrated 3ALMR33630 and 2A LMR33620 step-down converters have the industry's best full-load efficiency (92%) and are designed for demanding industrial power supplies that are demanding and reliable; at the same time, switching frequencies can be as high as 2.1 MHz. The use of these two converters in conjunction with TI's WEBENCH® power supply design tools not only simplifies power conversion, but also speeds up the design process.
Analog Devices (ADI) announced the LTC6952, LTC6953, LTC6955 and LTC6955-1 low-jitter, high-performance clock generation and distribution device family that supports up to 7.5GHz JESD204B subclass 1 clock applications. These products are ideally suited for high-speed data converter clocking applications. They use an extensible architecture to provide thousands of synchronous low-jitter clocks each with a complementary SYSREF signal.
