Synchronous regulators target consumer electronics apps
Articles 6/28/2010 Post a comment
ON Semiconductor has introduced a new family of high efficiency 2A to 4A integrated synchronous regulators for consumer electronics applications such as set top boxes, DVD/hard disk drives, LCD monitors/TVs, speakerphones, cable modems, and telecom/datacom equipment.
Class-D amps with AGC, DRC advance portable audio

Two Class-D amplifiers from Texas Instruments featuring automatic gain control and programmable dynamic range compression allow designers to compress the dynamic range of the audio to match the dynamic range of the speaker in portable applications.
There’s a further cool thing you can do with a spreadsheet that most SPICEs can’t. That’s to use the spreadsheet ‘solver’ functionality to adjust component values in the search for a better-fitting circuit – or even to find a set of component values for a circuit you can’t otherwise design.
Infineon MOSFETs have been embedded into PC boards by Schweizer Electronic AG
You now need to adjust component values to achieve some system goal, such as predefined frequency response or time behaviour, and there’s no closed method for working out those values.
As a member of the electronics design community, I am angry and disappointed with the recent deaths of 346 people due to the Boeing MAX 8 design
The theoretical advantages of GaN-based power transistors are now being realized in mainstream system designs. Power supplies for data centers and telecom switching racks are two application areas where GaN transistors show significant improvement in comparison to systems using best-in-class Silicon-based Superjunction devices.
