Electrical Equipment & Systems, Test & Measuring Instruments

Digitally Controlled POL DC/DC Converters deliver 50 A/165 W.

December 18, 2014

Supplied in 30.85 x 20.0 x 8.2 mm module, OKDx-T/50 series accommodates 4.5–14 Vdc input and provides configurable output from 0.6–3.3 Vdc. Typ efficiency is 97.2% at 5 Vin, 3.3 Vout and with 50% load. Available in through-hole, single-in-line, and SMT formats, converters can be configured and monitored using PMBus commands. Standard features include Dynamic Loop Compensation, Non-Linear Transient Response, phase spreading, and dead time control. Read More

Electronic Components & Devices, Materials & Material Processing

Crystal Units offer optimized frequency tolerance.

August 4, 2014

With frequency tolerance of ±20 ppm at +25°C, and frequency shift by temperature of ±20 ppm max from -30 to +85°C, XRCGB-F-P Series is suitable for use in 802.1 wireless connectivity designs using protocols such as Bluetooth Low Energy and ZigBee. Units are constructed in 2016 package, making them ideal candidates for second sourcing. Read More

Test & Measuring Instruments

SMD Piezoelectric Sounder suits portable health care devices.

June 27, 2014

Sound pressure level output, measured 10 cm from PKMCS0909E4000-R1, is >65 dB when driven with ±1.5 V, 4 kHz square wave. Max peak-to-peak voltage is ±12.5 V, and power consumption is 0.6 mW typ. Latter helps preserve battery life in consumer electronic devices. Measuring 9 x 9 x 1.7 mm and weighing 160 mg, sounder does not use any magnets or coils to create sound. This eliminates generation of electrical noise and minimizes impact on surrounding circuitry. Read More

Electrical Equipment & Systems

Three-Phase PFC and DC/DC Converter enhances data center efficacy.

June 4, 2014

Operating from 3-phase, 480 Vac input, 5 kW PFC converter (MPA9535) provides 380 Vdc output and ensures PFC is as close as possible to unity. Power conversion efficiency is up to 96% typ. Fed directly from MPA9535, matching high input voltage 1,200 Watt DC-DC converter (MPA9512) has 2 DC outputs: 12.12 Vdc (main) and +5 Vdc (standby). This stage of power conversion achieves efficiency of 95.2% typ. Occupying combined 4U footprint, 2 units are designed for use in 19-inch server racks. Read More

UHF RFID Device features wired I2C interface.

April 8, 2014

Operating in 900 MHz frequency band, Model LXMS2HACNF-165 conforms to ISO/IEC 18000-6C and EPC global C1G2 standards. Addition of I2C interface means that data of IC mounted on customer’s equipment and connected to it can be read using UHF RFID-Reader/Writer. Likewise, data in RFID device can be read by IC. Potential applications include management of memory settings of consumer appliances prior to shipping, holding appliance error log data, and recording environmental data. Read More

Sensors, Monitors & Transducers

Ultrasonic Sensor has compact, surface mount design.

March 18, 2014

Measuring 5.2 x 5.2 x 1.15 mm, MA40H1S-R series can deliver up to 100 dB sound pressure at 40 kHz. Operating voltage is 6 Vp-p, and sensor has -6 dB full angle beam of 80°. Structural design, including ceramic element, minimizes required mounting space. Typical areas of use include distance measurement, position detection, and 3D gesture detection applications in portable equipment. Read More

Electrical Equipment & Systems

DC-DC Converter Module suits FPGA and embedded applications.

January 17, 2014

Consisting of non-isolated buck converter without PWM controller, Power Block OKLP-X/35-W12-C measures 25.4 x 12.7 x 11.1 mm and has typ efficiency rating of 94%. Input voltage is 12 Vdc nominal and can accommodate range of 7–13.2 Vdc. Single package solution incorporates all power handling components, fully tested and characterized for thermal and dynamic performance. When coupled with ZMDI's ZSPM1035 single-phase digital PWM IC controller, unit offers 35 A point-of-load solution. Read More
