Vishay – 100V N-Channel MOSFETs Feature Lower Conduction Losses

        Vishay has introduced two 100V N-channel MOSFETs with very low on-resistance which enable power-system designers to benefit from higher efficiency, especially in equipment which is constantly on. The SUM70040E and SUP70040E feature maximum on-resistance of 4mΩ, a low value which helps the user to keep conduction losses to a minimum when the host equipment […]


TE Connectivity – ALCOSWITCH Illuminated Tactile Switch

TE Connectivity (TE) introduces the new ALCOSWITCH illuminated tactile switch series, designed for easy operation and reliability in a variety of board mounted applications. The tactile switch includes an LED indicator, available in low and high intensity versions with 8 unique color options. Rated up to 500,000 electrical lifecycles, the illuminated tactile series is designed […]


ON Semiconductor – Integrated Intelligence – Quality and Reliability

Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) simplify the design of power inverters and motor drivers by incorporating all the individual components for these functions onto a single device. These highly integrated devices improve the pre-driver and output power stages of these circuits by incorporating boot strap diodes, under-voltage protection, and over-current protection. ON Semiconductor’s use of Insulated […]


Infineon – IR1161L and IR11688S: Synchronous Rectification Controllers for SMPS

            Infineon is launching a new synchronous rectification controller family for switch mode power supply. This year, U.S. DoE and EU CoC standards are demanding higher efficiency from external power supplies; up to 3% efficiency improvement is required to meet the new standards. Together with Infineon’s best in class OptiMOSTM and StrongIRFETTM, IR1161L and IR11688S […]
