Uninterrupted power supply maximises machine availability
As more power-sensitive devices are deployed in automated industrial processes, the need for reliable battery backup power is growing exponentially, yet serious challenges remain in the design of traditional uninterrupted power supplies (UPS). Most UPS are simply too large or heat-sensitive to be installed in control cabinets or to be integrated into machines, and virtually all lack network communications required for remote diagnostics.
DisplayPort Linear ReDrivers for enhanced performance
Diodes Incorporated has introduced the 1.8V PI2DPX1066, PI2DPX1217, and PI2DPX1263 DisplayPort Linear ReDrivers. Suited for a range of applications including notebook and desktop PCs, smartphones, tablets, docking stations, gaming consoles, monitors, and virtual reality equipment, these parts use a lower-level supply voltage and draw less power than competing products.
