FCI , a leading supplier of connectors and interconnect systems, today unveiled its SFP+ SR transceiver, a new generation of low power pluggable optical transceiver fully compatible with the SFF-8431 industry standard. The 10Gb/s bandwidth pluggable transceiver is fully compliant with 10Gb Ethernet and Fibre Channel signal transmission protocols.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LT8709, a synchronous PWM controller for negative-to-negative or negative-to-positive DC/DC conversion. The LT8709 is unique in solving the problem of regulating a negative voltage with respect to system ground, without the need of complicated level shifting circuitry. The LT8709 can be configured in buck, boost, buck-boost, and inverting topologies.
Only 0.5 mm thick (or thin) SMD LED Kungbright KPHCM-2012 can be placed practically everywhere, without increasing an overall PCB thickness.
LED production technology currently surprises mainly on the field of white LEDs for lighting (SSL). But also color LEDs are getting still better as for the efficiency or for example in case of series Kingbright KPHCM - in miniature dimensions.
Audio Precision, the recognized standard in audio test, announced today the availability of the latest release, version 4.1, of their powerful APx500 audio test software. The release provides a number of enhancements, including full input bandwidth across all channels for their two-channel (APx555 and APx525) and sixteen-channel (APx586) analyzers.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LT8640, a 5A, 42V input capable synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique Silent Switcher™ architecture, combined with spread spectrum frequency modulation, reduces EMI/EMC emissions by more than 25dB even with switching frequencies in excess of 2MHz, enabling it to easily pass the automotive CISPR25, Class 5 peak limits. Synchronous rectification delivers efficiency as high as 95% with a switching frequency of 2MHz. Its 3.4V to 42V input voltage range makes it ideal for automotive and industrial applications.
Mouser Electronics, Inc., the global authorized distributor with the newest semiconductors and electronic components, is now stocking the PT62SCMDxx Dual SIC MOSFET Driver Boards from Cree. Designed to drive the CREE CAS300M17BM2 SIC MOSFET modules, the PT62SCMD12 and PT62SCMD17 single-board solutions are dual silicon carbide (SiC) MOSFET gate drivers optimized to ensure maximum performance for SiC modules. These boards are developed for Cree by Prodrive Technologies and are production-ready, with all the features required for an IGBT module gate driver.
SILICA, an Avnet, Inc. (NYSE: AVT) company, now helps solid-state luminaire manufacturers reduce the cost and complexity of manufacturing high-performance LED lighting, minimise inventory and develop new products faster.
Texas Instruments (TI) today introduced 11 new N-channel power MOSFETs to its NexFET™ product line, including the 25-V CSD16570Q5B and 30-V CSD17570Q5B for hot swap and ORing applications with the industry’s lowest on-resistance (Rdson) in a QFN package. In addition, TI’s new 12-V FemtoFET™ CSD13383F4 for low-voltage battery-powered applications achieves the lowest resistance at 84-percent below competitive devices in a tiny 0.6 mm by 1 mm package.
Littelfuse introduces the 487 Series Fuse, the first fast-acting fuse from its 5x20mm fuse family with both 420V AC and DC ratings.
It protects telecom power supply units (PSU) and datacenter server power applications where a high-voltage DC interrupting rating is required. The new fuses are available at distributor Rutronik as of now.
Mentor Graphics Corp. today announced that it has acquired Flexras Technologies, a leading developer of proprietary technologies that reduce time required for prototyping, validation, and debug of integrated circuits (ICs) and systems on chip (SoCs).
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. today launched two new IHLP® low-profile, high-current inductors in the 2020 case size with high operating temperatures to +155 °C. Offering low profiles of 3 mm, the Vishay Dale IHLP-2020CZ-51 and automotive-grade IHLP-2020CZ-5A provide a wide range of inductance values from 0.22 µH to 15 µH.
