Power consumption also is being reduced in digital audio/visual equipment, large household appliances and industrial equipment and the demand for low power consu...
0.8A step-up DC/DC converters feature load disconnection function
Torex Semiconductor has launched the XC9141/XC9142 series of 0.8A step-up DC/DC converters with a load disconnection function. The demand for internal-driver, step-up DC/DC converters in a small package for use in portable devices has been increasing in recent years. There is also an increasing demand for products equipped with an input–output disconnection function (load disconnection function) to prevent malfunctioning during standby, and...

The XC9266 series of 6A synchronous step-down DC/DC converters from Torex feature an internal 5.5V operation driver transistor and are equipped with the company’s HiSAT-COT fast transient response control.
Micro DC/DC converters feature integrated coil & control IC
Torex Semiconductor has launched the XCL223/XCL224 series of micro DC/DC converters with an integrated coil and control IC. These are the 'world’s smallest' class of 0.4A/0.7A type converters according to the company. The XCL223/XCL224 series are ultra-small (outer dimensions: 2.25x1.5x0.75mm) step-down micro DC/DCconverters with an integrated coil and control IC.

Push button reboot controllers target wearable devices
The XC6190 series of push button reboot controllers, which are designed for system reboot by means of a signal input from external buttons, has been released by TOREX SEMICONDUCTOR. The timer reset ICs supply a reboot signal to the system when 'L' voltage is input into both the SW1 pin and the SW2 pin for the required time (reboot delay time) using two switches (physical buttons).
1A µDC/DC converter with integrated coil minimises radiated noise
The XCL219/XCL220 module from Torex Semiconductor is designed to minimise unwanted radiated noise or EMI, making it suitable for sensitive RF applications.
