The Kinetis MCU portfolio offers exceptional low-power performance with smart feature integration, peripheral sets and scalability.

Designers of photovoltaic (PV) inverters have found that using an IGBT with a high blocking voltage can help increase reliability in several ways. A higher blocking voltage can increase the margin on the converters input stage, making it easier to handle voltage peaks on the solar panels bus.

KEMETs CBR series high frequency, high performance RF and Microwave Capacitors in C0G dielectric feature a robust and exceptionally stable base metal electrode system that provides excellent low loss performance (high Q).

The initial era of programmable technologies contained two different extremes of programmability. One extreme was represented by single core CPU and DSP units. These devices were programmable using software consisting of a list of instructions to be executed.

The worsening of the economical and energy crisis is putting more and more in evidence the need to reduce energy consumption as much as possible. One of the main issues to solve is reduction of the power consumption of electrical appliances while in standby.

Allegro MicroSystems, Inc. has developed a unique family of high performance integrated current sensor ICs designed to be used in grid-tied renewable energy and motor control applications.

As the power grid and digital meters become smarter, new technologies that support the collection and transfer of accurate information has become more critical. Data must be reliably and securely captured and transferred, and this can be challenging considering the varied locations and environmental conditions surrounding installed metering hardware.

Programmable, Single-Chip EZ-PD CCG2 Type-C Controller Enables Fast Time to Market for Top-Tier OEMs; Optimized Solution Follows the Pioneering CCG1 Type-C Port Controller

While associating green with a product name has come to represent a universally recognized symbol for low power, but what, exactly, is meant by low power isnt as often communicated. The requirements for a low-power microcontroller (MCU) will vary, depending upon the application and how the MCU will be used in the application.

TI introduced the industrys first 65-V synchronous step-down converter that provides isolated bias supplies up to 15 W without the need for an opto-coupler. As part of TIs innovative Fly-Buck power portfolio, the LM5160A improves power density and addresses higher power needs more efficiently and reliably in industrial and automotive applications.

Bourns provides the convenience of a one-stop supplier resource for circuit protection, control, power and resistive products. An optimal circuit design provides efficient functionality, protection for the motor system interfaces, increased system reliability and can reduce the footprint and Bill of Materials (BOM).

Avago Technologies gate drive optocouplers are used extensively in driving Silicon-based semiconductors like IGBT and Power MOSFETs. Optocouplers are used to provide reinforced galvanic insulation between the control circuits from the high voltages and the power semiconductors.

The RSA Conference in San Francisco, which is one of the premier annual events for people in data security, was held in end of February 2014, at a time when the data breach at Target Corporation is still very fresh in the minds of North American retailers, bankers, and consumers.

This application note describes how to get started with a power line communication (PLC) solution using the NCN49597 or the NCN49599, both are single chip half duplex spread frequency shift keying (S-FSK) modems. It proposes selecting a modem, firmware and evaluation kit, as well as building a prototype and writing application software.

The solution for IEDs based on IEC61850 uses ADIs ADSP-BF60x Blackfin Processor because it has dual independent processors and two independent ethernet MACs. The demo board offers also the possibility via an FPGA to add more Ethernet ports.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies today launched the AVO200 series dc-dc converters, which offers telecom and networking equipment manufacturers up to 94.5 percent efficiency. The first two models in this new series of 200 watt fully-regulated 1/8th brick dc-dc converters address the key 12 V and 5 V needs of communications installations.

This application note explains the nuances of the LPS clause of the UL2054 standard which can sometimes be difficult to interpret as it relates to the various circuit techniques that can be employed to meet the LPS requirements for systems not exceeding 20VDC.

The supply of energy is in a state of structural change due to dwindling fossil energy resources, the shutdown of nuclear power plants, increasing environmental awareness, and the associated integration of alternative energy resources.

Delivering streamlined behind-panel routings with MT, MPO/MTP* interfaces and IP67-sealed harsh-environmental protection with LC interfaces, Optical Electro Magnetic Interference (EMI) Shielding Adapters are ideal in networking and industrial applications.

The fast growing global hunger for electricity cannot be met in the future by
traditional sources of energy, more energy conservation is one solution, but
renewable resources like wind, solar, biomass, thermal, hydro-power, and tidal
and wave energy have the potential to solve this global challenge in a
fundamental and sustainable manner.

Low-cost embedded processors and increasingly ubiquitous data networks have made it possible to revolutionize energy metering. By enabling two-way communication between residences and utility companies, connected meters with embedded processors can record and transmit usage data to a power companys data center for use in billing and customer service.
