National Semi's new SIMPLE SWITCHER power modules drive loads up to 3A, output voltage 6V-24V Product News 1/19/2011 Post a comment National Semiconductor Corp. has introduced three new SIMPLE SWITCHER power modules, the first to drive high output voltage applications in a variety of markets including industrial, communications infrastructure and military. The LMZ14201H, LMZ14202H and LMZ14203H power modules provide the efficiency of a synchronous switching regulator with the simplicity of a linear regulator, eliminating the external inductor and complex layout placement challenges typical of switching regulator designs.
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
