New PMIC reference designs announced for FPGAs and SoCs
Renesas Electronics has announced three easy to use Power Management IC (PMIC) reference designs for powering the multiple supply rails of Xilinx Artix-7 FPGAs, Spartan-7 FPGAs, and Zynq-7000 SoCs, with and without DDR memory.
CLP open-frame power supply family expanded
With a focus on providing the power levels and options designers need, ABB is expanding its CLP open-frame power supply product family to support a higher range of output voltages. The new additions to the product line increase its output voltage options to up to 54V DC and its output power options to up to 550W.
New voltage variants under 100W
The Quint Power power supplies from Phoenix Contact in the power range up to 100W are now also available with special voltages of five and 12V. Three new single-phase power supply units (5V DC with 5A, 12V DC with 2.5A and 7.5A) supplement the portfolio, which until now has included 24V devices in the power range of up to 100W.
ICs incorporating robust 750V GaN transistors
Power Integrations has announced an expansion of its InnoSwitch3 families of offline CV/CC flyback switcher ICs. The new INN3x78C devices incorporate a smaller ‘size 8’ 750 V PowiGaN transistor, enabling compact, efficient power supplies delivering between 27 and 55W without heatsinks.
High speed switching MOSFET lineup expanded
Torex Semiconductor has launched the XP231P02013R and XP232P05013R as new series of MOSFET.
SiC MOSFETs achieve AEC-Q100 automotive qualification
Power Integrations has announced that its SIC118xKQ SCALE-iDriver, a high efficiency, single-channel gate driver for Silicon Carbide (SiC) MOSFETs, is now certified to AEC-Q100 for automotive use.
AI-based soft switching using 200kVA inverter reference
Pre-Switch has released first test data from its Cleanwave 200kW inverter reference. Double pulse test data demonstrates that the Pre-Switch soft-switching platform - comprising the Pre-Drive3 controller board powered by the Pre-Flex FPGA, and RPG gate driver board - reduces total system switching losses by 90% or more.
Silicon carbide module maximises benefits of SiC
Availability and full design support capabilities for a new silicon carbide module from Wolfspeed, have been announced by distributor Richardson RFPD.
5V USB-C controller targets low-voltage applications
The STUSB4500L from STMicroelectronics is a small-footprint addition to the company’s USB-C controller IC family designed and certified for pure 5V sink-only applications.
Synchronous-rectification controller helps cut BoM
A secondary-side synchronous-rectification controller with adaptive features that cut bill-of-materials costs has been released by STMicroelectronics.
