Battery innovations take centre stage at HIMSS
Medical battery manufacturer Ultralife is redefining portable power for the global healthcare IT industry at this year’s HIMSS exhibition at the Venetian-Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas from August 9th to 13th, 2021.
Compact single-chip PMIC solution available
Efficient reliability when size matters: the Nordic nPM1100 is a dedicated power management IC (PMIC) with configurable dual-mode buck regulator and integrated battery charger. It is designed as a complementary component to Nordic‘s nRF52 and nRF53 series of system-on-chips (SoCs) to ensure reliable power supply and stable operation while maximising battery life through high efficiency and low quiescent currents.
Three phase inverter for commercial and industrial
SolarEdge Technologies has announced the UK launch of its 100kW Three Phase Inverter with Synergy Technology. Designed to improve the profitability of larger PV installations, the SE100K inverter offers up to 150% DC oversizing to maximise energy generation.
Single-stage flyback controllers for smart LED drivers
Cost-effective dimmable and intelligent LED systems are expected to increase the market share disproportionately in the coming years. Introducing the ICL8800, ICL8810 and ICL8820 single-stage flyback LED controllers for constant output voltages, Infineon Technologies has addressed the need of LED driver manufacturers in this regard.
Load bank manufacturer launches power control chopper
In response to growing demand for more precise power dissipation, load bank manufacturer Power Prove has launched a dedicated IGBT-based electronic power control chopper, for continuous regulation of its load bank product offering. The power control chopper can be easily integrated into load banks to achieve high power dissipation and a degree of precision superior to that offered by any competitor.
RF LDMOS power transistors with high efficiency
STMicroelectronics has announced that it is adding a broad range of new devices to the STPOWER family of LDMOS power transistors, which comprises three different product series optimised for RF power amplifiers (PAs) in a variety of commercial and industrial applications.
Hybrid IGBTs with built-in SiC diode
ROHM has developed Hybrid IGBTs with integrated 650V SiC Schottky barrier diode, the RGWxx65C series (RGW60TS65CHR, RGW80TS65CHR, RGW00TS65CHR). The devices are qualified under the AEC-Q101 automotive reliability standard.
DC-DC modules with high-density current rating
Artesyn’s LGA80D and LGA50D DC-DC modules modules have a high-density current rating in a footprint of 25.4 mm (1 in.) by 12.5 mm (0.5 in.).
Power amplifier draws 100 mA from 5 V
A high efficiency amplifier from Qorvo is in stock at distributor RFMW with full design support.
Photocoupler with increased open voltage for isolated SSR
Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched a new photovoltaic-output photocoupler housed in a thin SO6L package measuring just 3.84x10x2.1mm, suitable for driving the gates of high-voltage power MOSFETs used to develop a galvanically-isolated solid-state relay (SSR) function.
