Fully cured dispensed thermal materials
29.02.2008 - 09:41
Chomerics Europe has been able to provide a solution to a thermal management application encountered on an automotive ECU using its silicone-based Therm-A-GAP T630G dispensable form-in-place gap filling material. Previous approaches considered included thermal interface pads, which can be expensive both in terms of component and assembly cost, a...
Versatile triple supervisor
29.02.2008 - 09:39
Linear Technology introduces the LTC2919, a versatile triple supervisor that monitors its own supply voltage and two adjustable inputs. Polarity selection and a buffered reference output allow the LTC2919 to monitor a combination of two positive or negative supplies for undervoltage (UV) and overvoltage (OV) conditions. The two inputs have a nom...

16 watt AC-DC adapter GreenPoint reference design
26.02.2008 - 13:31
ON Semiconductor introduced a GreenPoint open reference design for a 16 watt (W) ac-dc adapter for xDSL modems. This design exceeds ENERGY STAR requirements for single voltage ac-dc and ac-ac external power supplies revision 1.1, for high active-mode power efficiency and low standby-mode power consumption. The reference design can also be modifi...
Low power 15,000-gate FPGAs for 99 cent
26.02.2008 - 13:29
Actel announced the addition of two members to its IGLOO and ProASIC3 field-programmable gate array (FPGA) families starting at just 99 cents. Comparable in density to 128 macrocell complex programmable logic device (CPLD) offerings, the 15,000-gate devices offer power consumption as low as 5 microwatts (5µW). The FPGAs provide a alternati...
