Robotic race cars make clever use of software and infrared optics to follow lines slyly hidden on the track. Leland Teschler, Executive Editor The Overdrive starter kit we analyzed contains sections of track that can go together in various ways and can even include jumps. An interesting feature of the track is that its sections […]
STMicroelectronics’ new PM6773 and PM6776 step-down controllers meet demands for more accurate and energy-efficient power delivery in servers and data centers using the latest low-voltage, high-current microprocessors, ASICs, and field-programmable devices. In particular, the new ICs are designed to power Intel Skylake CPUs and DDR4 memories, extending ST’s family of digital step-down controllers for Intel […]
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 […]
STMicroelectronics and ClevX, an intellectual-property innovator and technology developer for portable storage and mobile device manufacturers, today announced the availability of a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant Encryption Technology Platform reference design for security applications using commercial/industrial-, rather than military-grade chips. The STM32 microcontroller-based platform will aid designers and manufacturers to design and build highly […]
