DC/DC boost converter with 0.7V input
19.12.2008 - 09:02
Texas Instruments introduced a 2-MHz DC/DC boost converter that operates at 5 µA of quiescent current, while maintaining a high efficiency at light load conditions. The integrated circuit supports an input voltage of 0.7 V to 5.5 V and an output voltage range of 1.8 V to 5.5 V, extending battery life in low-power microcontroller-based desi...
ADC for automotive radar applications
11.12.2008 - 09:22
Avnet Memec introduces the MAX11043 quad, 16-bit, simultaneous-sampling ADC for sensor applications from Maxim Integrated Products. Designed for continuous-wave (CW) chirp radar systems, this device provides a complete solution for conditioning and digitizing the IF signals from a 24GHz or 77GHz radar front-end for a DSP or microprocessor. The d...

The ruggedized, daylight readable DMU-30ACV / DCV series of panel mount, digital voltmeters from Murata Power Solutions is for applications in harsh environments. The 85VAC - 264VAC mains, or 110VDC - 300VDC battery powered meters are suitable for use in operating temperatures ranging from -25ºC to +60ºC.The DMU-30ACV / DCV series comp...
Combined Analog Switch and Audio Amplifier IC
05.12.2008 - 12:17
By consolidating an analog switch achieving –80dB isolation and a 1.6W class-D amplifier in a single package, the TS4961T from STMicroelectronics simplifies board design. Using this device, designers can implement both functions within a 3 x 3mm QFN16 footprint instead of using two separate components. The TS4961T is optimized for use in b...
Hot-Plug Switch for 12V Backplane Applications
04.12.2008 - 09:34
Maxim introduces the DS4560, a fully integrated, self-protected, resettable hot-plug switch. This device reduces the number of components required for the safe insertion and removal of systems on 12V powered backplanes. To minimize solution size and simplify design, the DS4560 integrates a 25mΩ n-channel power MOSFET, thus eliminating the ...
Ultrasonic transducer for liquid levels
03.12.2008 - 09:25
Siemens Division Industry Automation has added a PVDF (Polyvinylidene Fluoride) nose cone as an option to the non-contacting ST-H ultrasonic level transducer for liquids. This new material type improves the chemical compatibility of the ST-H transducer, offering more options for wet well, chemical storage, and process vessel applications. When p...
NiMH Charger IC

Maxim introduces the DS2710, a stand-alone, NiMH charger IC with alkaline-cell detection. The charger IC to incorporate fast-charge control and alkaline-cell detection. Eliminating the need for circuit design or microcontroller programming, this device offers a single-chip charger solution that protects against system damage due to corrosive cel...
Automotive-Grade Current-Sense Amplifier
28.11.2008 - 09:22
Maxim introduces the MAX9937, a high-side current-sense amplifier that uses external resistors to set the voltage gain for maximum design flexibility. The MAX9937 protects against accidental application of battery voltage in the reverse (wrong) direction and against inductive kickback transients and spikes (load dump) of -20V to +40V. These safe...
