Integrated smart power modules will run mechanical loads that would otherwise sap fuel mileage. THOMAS YIM | ON SEMICONDUCTOR GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS are stimulating demands for more economical vehicles that produce not just fewer NOx pollutants, but also less CO2. Vehicle tax policies currently favor less polluting models, and car makers must cope with new legislation […]
Linear Technology Corporation announces the H-grade versions of the LT8304/-1, monolithic flyback regulators with guaranteed operation for junction temperatures as high as 150°C. By sampling the isolated output voltage directly from the primary-side flyback waveform, the part requires no opto-coupler or third winding for regulation. The LT8304 operates over a 3V to 100V input voltage […]
