Infineon returns to Mobile World Congress EET Videos 3/11/2015 Post a comment After a four-year absence, Infineon returns to Mobile World Congress with a low-power barometric pressure sensor, embedded Secure Element (eSE) chip for securing mobile and communications networks, iBadge system, and more.
How to pocket-size a power brick EET Videos 3/11/2015 3 comments A laptop’s 65-watt adapter can be made 6 times smaller and lighter, while saving energy with more efficient switching, explains Infineon’s Andreas Urschitz at Mobile World Congress 2015.
DAC for Demanding Signal Generation EET Videos 12/16/2014 Post a comment The LTC2000 high-speed DAC has low noise and excellent spectral purity for demanding signal-generation applications. This video shows the LTC2000 and LTC6946 high-frequency synthesizer -- a clocking solution with excellent noise and spurious performance.
MOSFET Failure Protection EET Videos 12/16/2014 Post a comment How do you protect the load and ensure output continues to regulate if a DrMOS or MOSFET failure occurs? In this video, we show how the LTC3774 controller can be used in conjunction with Hot Swap and ideal diode circuits to meet this challenge.
Energy Harvesting Applications EET Videos 3/21/2014 Post a comment New developments in ultra-low-power microcontrollers with their high level of integration are enabling monitoring systems that draw sub-milliwatts of power. The LTC®3588-1 is a complete solution to energy harvesting systems.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros & cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight, as are piloted airplanes? Is the technology advancing faster than we can answer the questions it poses?
