TEGAM awarded patent for advanced thermistor design

TEGAM Inc., a leading supplier of innovative RF power measurements, was recently awarded Patent No. 8,558,556, “Planar-axial thermistor for bolometry.” This patent describes a novel way to construct very small planar thermistors on a substrate with very low heat transfer. The thermistors are more thermally isolated from the environment than are commercially-produced thermistors. Both the small size and thermal isolation make them useful for measuring RF power at microwave frequencies up to 70 GHz.

Linear introduces flyback synchronous rectifier driver that provides 10 A output current

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 introduces ideal diode bridge controller that minimizes power loss and heat

Linear Technology Corp. introduces the LT4321, an ideal diode bridge controller that replaces two diode bridge rectifiers with low-loss N-channel MOSFET bridges to increase the available power and reduce heat dissipation in a Power over Ethernet Powered Device (PoE PD). IEEE 802.3 PoE specifications require PDs to accept DC supply voltages of any polarity over their Ethernet inputs.
