Quad SPST Analog Switches support wearable applications.

January 29, 2015

Housed in 1.4 x 1.4 mm WCSP package with 0.35 mm pitch and top-side lamination, 200 Ω Models DG2501, DG2502, and DG2503 save space in wearable electronics and sensors as well as consumer and communication devices. Monolithic switches provide low CD(OFF) of 2.6 pF, CD (ON) of 7.6 pF, charge injection down to -0.7 pC, and typical switch-on leakage current of 9 pA. Operating from single 1.8–5.5 V power supply, RoHS-compliant units consume <0.01 µW and offer ESD tolerance of >8 kV. Read More

Power MOSFET Drivers come in thermally efficient, small packages.

January 29, 2015

Offered in SOT-23 and 2 X 2 mm DFN packages, MCP14A005X and MCP14A015X feature driver architecture for high speed operation; fast transitions and short delay times allow responsive circuit operation. Low input threshold is compatible with Microchip PIC® MCUs and dsPIC® Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs) while maintaining noise immunity and hysteresis. Users can design applications with MCUs operating as low as 2.0 V, using driver to boost output signal to 18 V, reducing power/conduction loss.

Low-Noise Single Coil Fan Driver IC has built-in current limiting.

January 27, 2015

Promoting energy efficient cooling system designs, 600 mA MLX90297 integrates Hall Effect sensor with 2 half bridge output stages. In addition to minimum speed setting, speed curve can be tuned via inclusion of one extra resistor. Soft start and soft switching mechanisms achieve optimal acoustic noise levels, as well as minimal vibration at higher speeds, without sacrificing max motor torque, and reduced driver resistance (RDSon) allows application to fans with coil resistances <10 Ω.
