A dual gate driver and two optimised MOSFETs are integrated in a 31pin QFN, from Alpha and Omega Semiconductor. The AOZ5038QI DrMOS power module is designed for high end computing and graphic applications.
Lithium batteries are found in a vast number of applications due to their superior lifetimes compared to other battery types. Lithium is the lightest of all metals, has the greatest electrochemical potential and provides the largest specific energy per weight.
MTM Power GmbH has developed the PMAS10 Print Power module series with low power consumption in unswitched position. The reduced stand-by power consumption of series PMAS10 is way below 1W, typically around 300mW. The Print Power modules are designed as universal compact power supplies with AC and DC wide input ranges and single output power of 5, 12, 15 and 24V for worldwide application.
Linear Technology announces the H-grade versions of the LT8304/-1, monolithic flyback regulators with guaranteed operation for junction temperatures as high as 150°C. By sampling the isolated output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform, the part requires no opto-coupler or third winding for regulation.
With modern electronic systems becoming more and more complex, demands on power systems are increasing rapidly. It’s now common for systems in every sector to incorporate more than one processor, FPGA or DSP – and all of these sub-systems have specific, conflicting power management requirements.
Manufacturer and distributor of electromagnetic and electronic components, ZETTLER electronics, has introduced its new AZ 6960 relay series. Housed in a low profile package with a height of 12.5mm, the sensitive subminiature power relay guarantees a creepage and clearance distance of 8mm as well as basic insulation according to IEC 60664-1. A 5kV coil-contact dielectric strength and a 1kV dielectric strength between open contacts ensure that the AZ 6960 is robust enough for even highly susceptible applications.
Currently taking place in Brussels, at the CS International Conference imec will present promising device results with a InGaAs-only TFET (Tunnel Field-Effect Transistor). Achieving a sub-60 mV/decade sub-threshold swing at room temperature, these devices are promising candidates to replace MOSFET transistors in future chip generations for low-power applications operating on low supply voltages.
Whether they are used in the automotive sector, electric bicycles, tools, energy networks, or industrial manufacturing; batteries play an increasing role in society, and it’s safe to say they are at the heart of many different devices and systems.
Primarily aimed at designers of AC-DC power supplies used in industrial applications, Luso Electronics announces availability of a family of Power Factor Correction (PFC) modules, generating an isolated regulated output and completely encased to provide protection from harsh environments.
