The RoHS compliant 5R7-001 features a load current of .1 to 25 Amps, temperature range of -40 to 250 degrees Celsius, large program memory space, PC programmable, 0-36 VDC output, and a split power supply system.
Texas Instruments announced the TPS92660 two-string LED driver and TPS92640/1 synchronous buck controllers. The three TI DC/DC LED drivers simplify white color tuning for high-color rendering and ultra-low dimming in professional-grade indoor and outdoor LED lighting applications. The TPS92660, TPS92640 and TPS92641 are available in volume now. The TPS92660 is available in a 20-pin PowerPad TSSOP. It is priced at $1.50 each in 1,000-unit quantities. The TPS92640 is offered in a 14-pin PowerPad TSSOP and the TPS92641 is offered in a 16-pin PowerPad TSSOP. The devices are priced at $1.75 and $1.85, respectively.
Texas Instruments announced the TMS320DM369 Digital Media System-on-Chip. The new DaVinci video processor offers low-light performance at twice that of the nearest competitor. The TI DMSoC is ideal for extremely low-light environments like parking garages or dark alleys. Samples of TI’s DaVinci DM369 video SoC will be available at this month. TI’s DaVinci DM369 IP camera reference design is currently available for $995.
Microsemi and Virtual Extension teamed on a two-chip wireless mesh network chipset and reference design. The reference design features Microsemi’s ZL70250 chip scale package (CSP) radio frequency (RF) transceiver for industrial, scientific and medical (ISM) band applications and Virtual Extension’s VE209M wireless mesh controller. Evaluation kits are available immediately from both Microsemi and Virtual Extension.
Texas Instruments recently announced their SWIFT 10-A TPS54020 synchronous step-down DC/DC converter. The TPS54020 features integrated MOSFETs, frequency synchronization, 180-degree out-of-phase switching and selectable current limit to power FPGAs, system-on-chip (SoC), DSPs and processors. The TI TPS54020 DC/DC converter is available in volume now in a 15-lead HotRod QFN package. It is priced at $3.45 in 1,000-unit quantities.
Texas Instruments announced their DRV2605 haptic driver. The TI DRV2605 makes it easy to add realistic tactile feedback effects to consumer and industrial products. The device’s smart loop architecture delivers the high performance consumer designers need to employ haptics in their products.
