TI reorganizes analog business, adds power unit News & Analysis 7/1/2008 Post a comment Texas Instruments Inc. has added a power management unit to its analog business and appointed a seasoned executive to lead the division as the Dallas-based company moves to fulfill a promise to raise the percentage of revenue generated from analog products.
36 to 72VIN Single-Inductor Buck-Boost Supply provides 48V/200W Output at 97% Efficiency without Heat Sinks Design How-To 7/1/2008 Post a comment A common problem faced by a power supply is how to generate an output that at any time can be above or below the input, particularly in battery-powered systems. Many conventional solutions - such as two-stage power converters, SEPIC converters or Flyback converters - suffer from bulky component requirements and low efficiency. The LTC3780 synchronous 4-switch buck/boost controller avoids these pitfalls by using a revolutionary high efficiency, single inductor topology.
30-W AC/DC switching supplies Product News 7/1/2008 Post a comment Designed to meet the power and EMC noise performance requirements in instrumentation, control, and telecommunication systems, Astrodyne has added 30 Watt units to the ECA Series of ultra-miniature encapsulated switching power supplies for EMC noise compliance to EN 60601-1-2:2001.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
