SiC FETs deliver increased efficiency for EV inverters
The UF3SC silicon carbide (SiC) FETs from UnitedSiC are now in stock at distributor Mouser Electronics.
Telecom version added to DC/DC converter series
Flex Power Modules introduces a new version of its BMR480 digital DC/DC converter, optimised for telecom applications that require input voltage down to 36Vin. The converter, called the BMR480 0113/034, provides an extended input voltage range below 40Vin, as required for telecom power conversion applications.
Ultra-low power and security for IoT come
STMicroelectronics has announced ultra-low-power STM32L5x2 microcontrollers (MCUs) that emphasise security to assure better protected IoT-connected applications. Operating at clock frequencies to 110MHz, the STM32L5-series MCUs start from the Arm Cortex-M33 32-bit RISC core with Arm TrustZone hardware-based security.
Preferred design house for gate driver ICs
As an independent design house, Hitex meets high quality standards and thus guarantees comprehensive and competent advice. This is why Hitex has been awarded by Infineon as Preferred Design House (PDH) for the TLE9180 family. As a certified service provider, Hitex supports customers in all aspects of the use of the TLE9180 gate driver IC devices.
Certified isolation voltage for electric vehicles
Allegro MicroSystems has announced the release of its brand-new custom SOIC16W package bringing certified isolation voltage for EVs, named ‘MC’, which marks a leap forward in current sensing capabilities for power dense applications that require high isolation with low power loss.
FRED recovery rectifiers presented in 0.9mm profile
Eight new 100V and 200V devices in the eSMP series SlimSMAW (DO-221AD) package with a low 0.9 mm profile have been added to Vishay Intertechnology’s FRED Pt Ultrafast recovery rectifiers.
Conference programme for PCIM 2020 announced
Parallel to the PCIM Europe exhibition, the conference held from 5th-7th May 2020 in Nuremberg, offers a multi-faceted programme consisting of lecture and poster presentations, keynotes, special sessions and exclusive seminars and tutorials.
Highly integrated and flexible synchronous DC/DC converters
STMicroelectronics’ L6983 38V/3A synchronous DC/DC converters maintain high efficiency at all loads with a maximum value of 95% and are highly integrated with synchronous MOSFETs on-chip to save external components and simplify design.
BLDC drivers target high-voltage applications
STMicroelectronics has introduced four new devices in the STSPIN32F0 motor-control system-in-package BLDC driver family, which simplify the design of mains-powered home appliances and industrial equipment including corded power tools, drives, pumps, fans, and compressors.
Enabling the next level of ultra-high power-density designs
Building on superjunction technology innovations and more than 20 years of experience, Infineon Technologies has broadened its CoolMOS portfolio with the PFD7 product family combining performance with ease of use. The devices are suitable for ultrahigh power-density designs such as chargers and adapters as well as for low-power drives and specific lighting applications.
