Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8309, a flyback secondary-side synchronous rectifier driver that replaces the output diode with a MOSFET, allowing up to 10A output current without the use of a heat sink. The maximum output current of a flyback power supply has been limited by the power loss and heat generated from the output diode when no heat sink is used.
Linear Technology Corp. announces the LT8710, its first synchronous SEPIC, inverting, boost and flyback multi-topology DC/DC controller. This synchronous device replaces the output diode with a high efficiency P-channel MOSFET, increasing efficiency, maximum output current (up to 10A) and eliminating the heat sink typically required in medium to high power applications, making the LT8710 highly versatile for a wide range of power supply designs.
Vishay Intertechnology Inc. introduced a new series of thick film chip resistors for high-power, surface-mount RF applications. Offered in the compact 1206 case size, the Vishay Dale RCP series devices feature a power rating of 1 W at +70°C with a standard board mount and up to 11 W with active temperature control.
Tektronix Inc., a leading worldwide provider of test, measurement and monitoring instrumentation, announced an expansion of its family of precision power analyzers with the introduction of the PA1000 single-phase power analyzer. Featuring a patent pending Spiral Shunt™ design, the PA1000 provides engineers designing and testing power supplies, consumer electronics and other electrical products with accurate power measurements in the shortest possible time.
COMSOL Inc., a leading global provider of engineering simulation software, announced the release of COMSOL Multiphysics® 4.4, the latest version of its powerful platform for the modeling and simulation of electrical, mechanical, fluid, and chemical applications.
Altium Ltd., a global leader in Smart System Design Automation, 3D PCB design (Altium Designer) and embedded software development (TASKING), announces the new version of its flagship product, Altium Designer 14.
Aeroflex Inc., a wholly owned subsidiary of Aeroflex Holding Corp., announced the release of the 3515B Military Portable Radio Test Set featuring a color touch-screen and enhanced specifications to provide users with a lightweight, easy to use, and reliable radio test system. Designed for Military applications, the 3515B features a ruggedized touch-screen with a magnesium case for use in severe environments.
Remcom announces an update to XFdtd 3D Electromagnetic Simulation Software, Bio-Pro version, enhanced with special features for the Magnetic Resonance (MR) community. XFdtd Bio-Pro is a specialty version of XFdtd, developed for calculation of the biological effects of electromagnetic fields.
Proper installation of RF connectors onto coax cable is critical in wireless system performance. Two new N male connectors simplify the installation process by eliminating the need to trim the braid during cable preparation. The RFN-1006-49I features a solderless captive pin and the RFN-1006-4I features a crimp pin.
PCB prototyping specialist LPKF Laser & Electronics has announced an interactive website feature that helps those interested in in-house PCB prototyping learn which equipment would best fit their electrical engineering applications.
