Using Summit's programmable power management ICs, system designers can digitally program the entire multiple output power supply and associated power management functions with a few clicks of a mouse compared to the tedious iterative hardware design of conventional analog power solutions.
Mysticom retimer chips achieve new levels of integration for CX4 and LX4 apps
Articles 2/22/2005 Post a comment
Mountain View, Calif. Mysticom Semiconductor has introduced a pair of new retimer chips for Xenpak, X2 and XFP modules that incorporates its third generation 10 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE) transceiver technology. The new chips the MY3128 designed for 10GBase-CX4 over Infiniband cable and the MY3129 designed for10GBase-LX4 over multimode fiber tout the highest levels of integration and industry's smallest footprint. For systems designers, this means fewer components, lower costs a

The Intersil pulse width modulator provides two buck regulator outputs and a linear controller output for powering double data rate memory supplies for servers, motherboards, I/Os, FPGAs, and embedded processors, as well as, graphic cards and other system electronics.
Simple battery circuit extends Power over Ethernet (PoE)
Articles 2/3/2005 Post a comment
PoE power comes in the form of "48V at 350mA. If the PoE current is allowed to exceed 400mA, the standard calls for the PSE to break the circuit. This is a problem for devices that occasionally need a little more juice than PoE has to offer. Another problem is that "48V does not easily convert to commonly used positive voltage supply rails. Guess what: A Linear Technology engineer shows you how to do this from a battery.
LTC raises sampling rate of 12-bit A/D converter
Articles 2/2/2005 Post a comment
Today Linear Technology Corp. introduced the LTC2220-1, a 12-bit, 185 megasamples/sec (Msamples/s) analog-to-digital converter (A/D converter), that combines solid AC performance with low power for power amplifier (PA) linearization.
The utilization of electronics in medical applications could effectively enhance the quality of life of patients and prevent many cardiovascular distresses: this is confirmed by the result of an observational study, about the CPAP device
This blog series deals with the potential of the utilization of smart electronic ICs in medical care applications; these ICs are produced by companies in the field of semiconductors such as STMicroelectronics which has a broad portfolio of ICs for medical applications
There is rising interest in alternative energy schemes and electric vehicles (EVs) which means there is a growing need in making it possible for power to flow efficiently in both directions.
The industries sector is progressively increasing utilization of IoT technology to make the industrial processes automated in a very intelligent way.
Medical care applications with electronic devices are becoming progressively more important and massively adopted.
