Three axis sensor detect 24g
19.10.2009 - 12:54
STMicroelectronics introduced a three-axis sensor with digital output that can detect accelerations up to 24g, or about 5x the force created by a Formula One car under heavy braking. The LIS331HH provides accurate output across full-scale ranges of ±6/±12/±24g. The medium-g sensing enables high-level vibration monitoring and...
Class D Audio Amplifier
05.10.2009 - 10:35
ON Semiconductor introduced a Class D Audio Amplifier with an integrated charge pump. The NCP2830 is a 1W constant power filterless device that delivers continuous audio output to an 8.0 Ω Bridge Tied Load (BTL) with less than 1 percent total harmonic distortion - even if the input voltage varies. Housed in a 20-pin QFN package measuring 3...
