TT Electronics, a global provider of engineered electronics for performance critical applications, today launched its ULWP2R range of fusible wirewound resistors. By combining the functions of a fuse and a line input resistor in a single, vertical radial formed component the resistors save valuable PCB space. The UL recognised, 2W rated power resistors are aimed […]
Analog Devices, Inc. announced a series of three isolated pulse width modulation (PWM) controllers with integrated 5 kV isolation enabled by ADI’s award-winning iCoupler® technology. The ADP1071-1 and ADP1071-2 are isolated synchronous flyback controllers and the ADP1074 is an isolated synchronous active clamp forward controller. By integrating multiple functions such as overvoltage protection (OVP), output tracking, […]
Texas Instruments introduced a new single-chip reinforced isolator with integrated power and efficient power transfer, low radiated emissions and high immunity. This new reinforced isolator supports reliable operation of industrial systems, including factory automation, grid infrastructure, motor control, isolated power supplies, and test and measurement equipment. The ISOW7841 integrates both isolated data and power, enabling […]
The STSPIN250 single-chip 2.6A driver for brushed DC motors extends STMicroelectronics’ family of miniature, low-voltage, energy-efficient drivers for battery-powered portable and wearable applications. The driver integrates a full power-MOSFET bridge and fixed off-time PWM current controller in a tiny 3mm x 3mm package that saves space in portable equipment. The low on-resistance of the power […]
