Nichia takes the motto “Always Study a Better World” and continues to grow in the fields of development, manufacture and sales of fine chemicals, especially inorganic phosphors (phosphors). In the challenge of pursuing brighter luminous and luminous materials,they successfully developed and commercialized ultra-bright blue LED in 1993, which left a deep impression on the world. Since the introduction of blue LEDs for the first time in 1993, Nichia have succeeded in developing the world's first white LED that combines a yellow phosphor with a blue LED, and subsequently successfully developed a practical level of blue-violet semiconductor lasers in the world. The invention of these nitride-based LEDs and laser diodes has led to technological innovations in the field of display light sources, like general lighting, automotive, industrial equipment, medical care and measurement.
Linear Technology Corporation, a subsidiary of Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), introduced the LT8609S, a 2A (3A peak), 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its unique Silent Switcher® 2 architecture utilizes two internal input capacitors and internal BST and INTVCC capacitors to minimize thermal loop area. The LT8609S is designed to significantly reduce EMI/EMC emissions due to the extremely well-controlled switching edges, with an internal ground plane and copper posts instead of bond wires.
