DC/DC converters with 250W for railway applications
MTM Power has developed the new DC/DC converter series PCMDS250 for universal applications in railway and vehicle technology. The PCMDS250 series is based on a revision of the well-proven PCMD250 converter series after more than ten years of successful market presence.
A guide to thermal impedance
This guide by Recom considers effective thermal impedance testing to allow the converter to run at full capacity, without compromising performance
Going for GaN in converter designs
A high power 1/16th brick converter using GaN FETs could increase maximum load current in 1/16th brick converter designs, compared with MOSFET designs
Power management in electric vehicles
In electrical and hybrid powertrains, the new 48V electrical architecture pushes the limit with regard to electromagnetic compatibility and safety requirements. Optical Ethernet technology brings in its inherent galvanic isolation and mechanical robustness, providing the ideal network for current and future in-vehicle connectivity.
QPL-qualified SupIR-SMD package for rad hard MOSFETs
Reliably attaching surface mount hermetic power packages to PCBs is a common challenge faced by space system designers. Too often, different thermal coefficients lead to an expansion mismatch of different materials. IR HiRel, an Infineon Technologies company, has solved this issue with fourteen newly QPL-qualified rad hard MOSFETs (radiation-hardened) housed in an innovative direct-to-PCB mounting package.
Asymmetrical output isolated DC/DC converters from CUI
CUI Inc has announced the addition of four isolated converters to its isolated DC/DC converter line. The PRQ3W-S, PQD10W-D, PQF20W-D, and PRF30W-D are three to 30W, dual regulated, DC/DC converters in SIP & DIP packages. These converters additionally offer wide input ranges, robust operating temperatures, and EN 62368-1 certification
Really cool, really efficient
Shrinking PCB areas mean system designers are opting for smaller passive components and up-integrated sensors in switched mode power designs, says Allegro as it introduces its 400kHz current sensors.
EP70xx family of high-performance IVRs sampling now
Empower Semiconductor has announced the EP70xx family of power management IC IVRs that will provide significant energy savings in data centers with a big point-of-load power performance disruption.
