Vishay Intertechnology Inc. announced a new Power Metal Strip® battery shunt resistor featuring a molded enclosure with a four-pin connector. Providing easy PCB connection to the shunt resistor assembly, the WSBM8518 allows design engineers to focus on circuit development instead of PCB connection issues.
Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LTC2945, a wide range I²C system monitor that monitors the current, voltage and power of any 0 to 80 V rail. In many cases, prior power monitoring solutions are limited to 3 to 5 V supplies and monitor voltages less than 36 V, requiring additional circuitry to monitor higher voltages. The LTC2945 has flexible power supply options, deriving power from a 4 to 80 V monitored supply, a 2.7 to 80 V secondary supply, or from the onboard shunt regulator.
Peregrine Semiconductor Corp. (Peregrine), a fabless provider of high-performance radio-frequency (RF) integrated circuits (ICs), announced from booth # 2009 at the International Microwave Symposium (IMS2012) in Montreal, two new Digitally Tunable Capacitors (DTCs) — the PE64101 and PE64102 (PE64101/2) DTCs. The 5-bit, 32-state DTCs, designed using Peregrine’s DuNE™ tuning technology, enable wide-band tunable networks and minimize mismatch losses, improve system efficiency, and reduce radio complexity for cost-sensitive applications, such as RFID, phase shifters, and wireless communications, among others.
