Linear's 9 to 72 V ideal diode bridge controller now specified for military & automotive applications
Linear Technology Corp. announces the automotive (H-grade) and high reliability military (MP-grade) versions of the LT4320, an ideal diode bridge controller for 9 to 72 V systems. The LT4320 replaces a full-wave diode bridge rectifier with a low loss N-channel MOSFET bridge to reduce the power and voltage losses by a factor of ten or more. Power supply size is reduced as the enhanced power efficiency eliminates bulky heat sinks.
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 Linduino™ One development tool, an Arduino-compatible platform for developing and distributing firmware libraries and code for Linear Technology’s SPI and I²C-compatible integrated circuits. The Linduino One board interfaces to more than 300 QuikEval™ demonstration cards, supporting a variety of product types including analog-to-digital converters (ADCs), digital-to-analog converters (DACs), power monitors, intelligent Hot Swap™ controllers, temperature sensors, LED drivers, and battery management systems.
Centellax announced it will offer another level of integration to its highly successful linear modulator driver product line.
Linear Technology Corp. announces a native Mac OS X release of its popular LTspice® IV simulation program. This new release of LTspice supports Mac OS X 10.7+ platforms and has similar capabilities and features as its Windows counterpart.
Gilat Satellite Networks Ltd. announced the immediate availability of the Wavestream Ka-band Matchbox Mini Block Upconverter. The Matchbox Mini incorporates Wavestream's Spatial advantEdge™ technology to provide higher output power in smaller, lighter weight packages that are more reliable and use less energy.
MicroGen Systems announced that vibration energy harvesting BOLT™ Power Cells enabled a live wireless sensor network (WSN) using Linear’s Dust Networks LTC5800-IPM SmartMesh™ IP mote-on-chip at the Sensors Expo and Conference exhibition in Rosemont, IL on June 5-6, 2013.
Avago Technologies, a leading supplier of analog interface components for wireless, wireline, and industrial applications, announced two new RF power amplifiers (PAs), the MGA-43728 and MGA-43828, and a new WiFi FBAR filter, the ACFF-1024, designed specifically for small cell base transceiver station (BTS) applications.
Mini-Circuits and Modelithics Inc. are working together to develop high-accuracy linear and non-linear models for selected surface-mount products. The latest offering includes three new X-Parameter* amplifier models for Mini-Circuits PHA-1+, GVA-62+ and GVA-63+ products.
Richardson RFPD Inc. announces immediate availability and full design support capabilities for a new 200 W solid state, broadband, high power pallet amplifier featuring Freescale Semiconductor Inc. (Freescale) enhanced rugged LDMOS devices.
