Renesas Electronics Corporation introduced the ISL9122A, a flexible buck-boost switching regulator with bypass mode that provides ultra-low quiescent current (IQ) for powering sensors, microcontrollers (MCUs), wireless devices, and other system components. Operating with battery output from 1.8V to 5.5V, the ISL9122A extends the battery life of smart IoT devices powered by coin-cell, lithium, and multiple […]
Power amplifier efficiency too center stage at the 2020 International Microwave Symposium’s 5G Summit. In this video interview, Naveen Yanduru of Renesas, one of the summit’s presenters, explains why engineers need to continue working on the problem.
Just because 5G is rapidly rolling out doesn’t mean everything works and it’s time to move on. Indeed, the design challenges are just beginning, as this two-part series from IMS 2020’s 5G Summit shows.
Renesas Electronics Corporation (TSE:6723), a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced the second phase of new ready to use partner solutions supporting the Renesas RA Family of 32-bit Arm Cortex-M microcontrollers (MCUs). Building off the first group of partners introduced in November 2019, the expanded RA partner ecosystem now features more than 50 partners and […]
This webinar was presented on Tuesday, July 21, 2020 Please click the link below to watch on demand Poor air quality can impact an individual’s health and wellness, as well as the global economy. There is currently a lack of sufficient equipment in the consumer market addressing this issue and little expertise on […]
Temperature is certainly the most obvious answer but there are other sensors that are increasingly being employed in the smartest homes and buildings. With the right sensor inputs, several actions can be taken by actuators to increase health/safety as well as comfort. In addition to temperature measurements, pressure, humidity and air quality sensing in ducts […]
by Theju Bernard, Intersil, a Renesas Company The automotive industry is quickly moving toward more electrification. The deployment of start-stop systems, emergency call (eCall) telematics, and hybrid vehicles is fueling the need for advanced battery management systems that not only charge the battery in a safe manner but also prolong its useful life. There are […]
Renesas Electronics Corporation announced that its R-Car system-on-chip (SoC) for car infotainment and advanced driving assistant systems (ADAS), as well as its RH850 automotive control microcontroller (MCU), have been adopted by Nissan for the ProPILOT Park, a full-fledged automated-parking system, of its new LEAF, Nissan’s new 100 percent electric vehicle which debuted on September 6, 2017. […]
Keeping components and systems cool enough and within their safe temperature zone is a concern for many, though not all, designers and projects. Excessive heat as measured by temperature can cause erratic behavior, inaccuracy and drift due to temperature coefficient-induced shifts, shortened component lifetime, and even outright failure. Q: What are the cooling options? The […]
Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, introduced a highly integrated programmable power management IC (PMIC) that delivers 91% efficiency at 1.1V output voltage for application processors, GPUs, FPGAs and high-performance system power. The new PMIC’s low RDS(on) MOSFETs and programmable PWM frequency allows designers to use fewer low-profile external components, enabling a 50mm2 power-supply […]
