Top 5 power products in April
Electronic Specifier takes a look at the top power products to have been released in April.
Half bridge driver optimised for asymmetrical topologies
STMicroelectronics has extended the MasterGaN family with the introduction of a high power density 600V half bridge driver with two enhancement mode GaN devices optimised for asymmetrical topologies.
Switching regulator operates at -40°C to +100°C
The RPMH-1.5 series from Recom is a 1.5A non-isolated switching regulator power module. It features a profile of just 3.75 mm and operates in a temperature range of -40°C to +100°C without derating.
80A digital PoL regulator in compact SIP
Flex Power Modules introduces the BMR474, a high power density, digital non-isolated Point of Load (PoL) regulator. Due to its vertically mounted SIP (Single Inline Package) design, the BMR474 saves valuable board space, while being able to deliver up to 80A output current, with a maximum power output of 198W.
650V GaN FETs for 80 PLUS Titanium-class power supplies
Nexperia has announced volume availability of its second-generation 650V power GaN FET device family, offering significant performance advantages over previous technologies and competitive devices.
DCM ChiP isolated DC/DC converter for standard voltages
The DCM ChiP is an isolated, regulated DC/DC converter, operating from an unregulated, wide range input to generate an isolated output. With its high frequency zero voltage switching (ZVS) topology, DCMs consistently deliver high efficiency across their specified input line range.
Smaller profile circuit protection TVS components
ProTek Devices has introduced a series of high-powered surface mount TVS components for circuit protection from electromagnetic field, lightning, and other electrical fast transients in high power applications. These new devices for motors and relays are provided in that industry’s lowest-profile packaging compared with competing solutions.
MicroDLynx II DC/DC converters for compact IT equipment
Pushing the boundaries of advanced IT and networking devices requires improvements in component density and functionality. And for power and electrical engineers, this equates to designing board-level power modules in ever-shrinking, high density packages. ABB’s new MicroDLynx II DC-DC converters help meet the power needs of demanding, data-hungry applications, providing highly accurate voltage regulation in a compact, 232mm2...
3kW AC/DC power supplies provide 150 to 800VDC
XP Power has announced the introduction of the HDL3000-HV series of single-phase input 3kW AC/DC power supplies with output voltages from 150V to 400VDC, with up to 800VDC realised by connecting units in series. All models feature output voltage and current adjustment ranging from zero to 105% using analogue (via voltage or resistance) or digital (I2C, RS485 and RS232) interfaces enabling the user to optimise and tailor the power solution to the ...
EiceDRIVER X3 gate drivers with reinforced isolation
Infineon Technologies has expanded its easy-to-design EiceDRIVER X3 Compact (1ED31xx) and the highly flexible EiceDRIVER X3 Enhanced Analog (1ED34xx) and Digital (1ED38xx) gate driver families. Both families now offer variants with superior reinforced isolation for higher application safety and long operating life.
