Active bridge solution targets PoE-based IoT devices

Active bridge solution targets PoE-based IoT devices
Fairchild has announced a next-gen device for applications that receive power via PoE, such as security cameras, wireless access points, LED lighting and other Powered Devices (PDs). Designers can lower operating temperature, increase efficiency and reduce the solution size of their devices by taking advantage of the FDMQ8205’s best-in-class RdsON performance, extremely small form factor and superior thermal performance.

DC/DC converters feature power sharing

DC/DC converters feature power sharing
Two new series of DC/DC converters from RECOM Power are available at Richardson RFPD with full design support. The RKZ-xx2005D and RxxP22005D series are especially designed for SiC MOSFET driver applications with harsh environmental requirements. The new DC/DC converters are available with input voltages of 5, 12, 15 or 24VDC, with two asymmetric outputs of +20VDC and -5VDC.

Latest lithium-oxygen battery improves energy efficiency

Latest lithium-oxygen battery improves energy efficiency
But a new variation of the battery chemistry, which could be used in a conventional, fully sealed battery, promises similar theoretical performance as lithium-air batteries, while overcoming all of these drawbacks. The battery concept, called a nanolithia cathode battery, is described in the journal Nature Energy in a paper by Ju Li, the Battelle Energy Alliance Professor of Nuclear Science and Engineering at MIT; postdoc Zhi Zhu; and five others at MIT, Argonne National Laboratory, and Peking University in China.

100kA LV switchboard meets needs of building's power applications

100kA LV switchboard meets needs of building's power applications
When Boulting Technology identified a trend in industry power management needs, it teamed up with ABB to design and manufacture its first 100kA Low Voltage (LV) switchboard. The Boulting Power Centre (BPC) is fully BS EN 61439-compliant and the company designed it to match exactly the needs of industrial and commercial buildings' power applications, which require high fault tolerance levels.

Electrochemical cell generates electricity

Electrochemical cell generates electricity
A pair of researchers at Cornell University has created an aluminum-based electrochemical cell that captures and sequesters carbon emissions while simultaneously generating a large amount of electricity. In their paper published in the journal Science Advances, Wajdi Al Sadat and Lynden Archer describe the cell, how it works and why they believe it is better than other carbon-capturing cells that have been developed to date.

Bulk superconductor achieves magnetic field record

Bulk superconductor achieves magnetic field record
Dr Mark Ainslie of the Bulk Superconductivity Group, in conjunction with a Japanese research team, has achieved a bulk superconductor magnetic field record. The record-high trapped magnetic field of 1.1 T at 13 K in a magnesium diboride (MgB2) bulk superconductor using a practical, pulsed-field magnetisation technique comes on the heels of the Bulk Superconductivity Group's previous 2014 world record result, where 17.6 T was achieved in a stack of two Gd-Ba-Cu-O high-temperature superconductors at 26 K using a slower and more expensive, field-cooling magnetisation technique.

200W primary switched modules offer IP67 compliance

200W primary switched modules offer IP67 compliance
MTM Power has announced a series of primary switched modules, the PM-IP67A200 series, featuring IP67 ingress protection. The modules are especially designed for the electric supply of control, sensor and actuating systems in the field directly at the application. In order to achieve protection degree IP67 for conventional power supplies, it has been necessary to install them into switching cabinets or corresponding enclosures.

15dB gain block delivers 47dBm OIP3 linearity

15dB gain block delivers 47dBm OIP3 linearity
Linear Technology announces the LTC6433-15, a wideband 15dB gain block amplifier offering outstanding linearity of 47dBm OIP3 (output third order intercept) and 3.22dB noise figure at 150MHz. The amplifier has excellent OP1dB (output 1dB compression point) of 19.2dBm. The LTC6433-15 is uniquely different from other gain block amplifiers that are typically built using GaAs or pHEMT processes.

A glimpse of the inner workings of thin transistors

A glimpse of the inner workings of thin transistors
A team of physicists at The University of Texas at Austin has had the first-ever glimpse into what happens inside an atomically thin semiconductor device. In doing so, they discovered that an essential function for computing may be possible within a space so small that it's effectively one-dimensional. In a paper published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences, the researchers describe seeing the detailed inner workings of a type of transistor that is two-dimensional.
