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.
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.
Analog Devices (ADI) announces the introduction of the Power by LinearTMLTM8002, a step-down DC/DC μModule® (power module) regulator with 40V rated input voltage (42V abs max) and 2.5A continuous ( 3.5A peak output current in a 6.25mm x 6.25mm x 2.22mm BGA package. The LTM8002 contains a switching regulator controller, power switch, inductor, and other support components. Only a large capacity input and output capacitor and two resistors are needed to complete the design.
Recently, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) announced that it has introduced a new series of direct water-cooled wirewound resistors, DCRF, which provides ultra-high power consumption of 9000W with little external radiation. The Vishay MCB DCRF series devices are available in six compact sizes from 38 mm × 178 mm to 38 mm × 410 mm. This series is designed to save space and increase reliability compared to standard wire wound resistors.
Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) announced the launch of three enhanced automotive audio bus (A2B®) transceivers that provide unprecedented system performance customization capabilities to meet the most stringent electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) requirements.
The MAXM17532 and MAXM15462 ultra-small (2.6mm x 3.0mm x 1.5mm), integrated DC-DC power modules are part of Maxim's Himalayan power solution patent portfolio for the industrial, healthcare, communications and consumer markets. With these modules, customers can take full advantage of all the advantages of the industry's switching regulators, as well as the advantages of a small linear regulator (LDO) and easy design.
The emergence of new applications such as artificial intelligence and machine learning continues to drive the exponential growth of data center requirements for processing power and I/O bandwidth. The introduction of Marvell's new transceivers is specifically designed to address the upgrade of super-large data centers from 25 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) and 100GbE to 50GbE, 200GbE and 400GbE. The 88X7120 uses 50G PAM4 signaling and supports 16 50GbE ports, 4 200GbE ports and 2 400GbE ports to meet the I/O speed requirements for very large-scale data centers.
Recently, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. announced the launch of its new 200V FRED Pt® Ultrafast Fast Recovery Rectifiers - VS-6DKH02-M3 and VS-8DKH02-M3, automotive grade VS-6DKH02HM3 and VS-8DKH02HM3. The new rectifier is available in a thermally efficient FlatPAKTM 5x6 package and has a height of less than 1mm. Commercial/industrial VS-6DKH02-M3 and VS-8DKH02-M3, as well as automotive grades VS-6DKH02HM3 and VS-8DKH02HM3, both undergo 2000 hours of high temperature reverse bias testing (HTRB) with long-term reliability, high power density And high efficiency, suitable for automotive and communications applications.
