Maxim Integrated – Pack More Punch in Your Small Sensor While Keeping It Cool

Pg24_Maxim_thumb

Introduction Sensors have become ubiquitous in the industrial environment. As they increase in sophistication and shrink in size, sensors are enabling Industry 4.0. In turn, sensor electronics are becoming more complex, requiring on-board voltage regulators to deliver power more efficiently and with minimum heat generation. How do you safely deliver low-voltage power to tiny sensors […]

Nexperia – Using an LFPAK MOSFET to Switch 200A

Pg26_Nexperia_thumb

The ever decreasing β€˜on’ resistance of modern MOSFETs means that they stay cool even when handling lots of amps. It is possible to dispense with a heatsink and rely on the copper of the PCB to dissipate the heat. This ability to surface-mount power devices is what makes new packages like LFPAK and Power SO8 […]
