ON Semiconductor – Down to the Wire: PoE Converter and Controller Solutions

FTMOct2017-OnSemiconductor-tile-200x200

Quite often we tend to primarily interact with electronic devices in a mobile or stationary state. Security cameras, controlled lighting, intercoms, and badge card entry scanners are all examples of devices that are removed from ample infrastructure but are not mobile. These remote devices need both power and data communication lines. In the last decade, […]

ON Semiconductor – Rail-to-Rail Operational Amplifiers; Driving Precision and Optimization

FTMSept2017-OnSemi-tile-200x200

When designing automotive applications it is easy to leave the operational amplifier (op amps) as the last link in the system to select and implement. Automotive applications are especially demanding. The below families generate small error post amplification, operate at a high speed, capture transition of signals, and are stable in overdriven conditions. These automotive […]

ON Semiconductor – LED Direct AC Drive Solutions

Pg8_ONsemi_thumb

What is a direct AC driver (DACD) for LEDs? Let’s first start with the more traditional approach for LED lighting with an AC source. This traditional approach is called Switch-Mode Power Supply (SMPS) and generates a regulated output current. This SMPS driver requires electrolytic capacitors, magnetic components, and EMI filters. In addition, it must sit […]

ON Semiconductor – Sensors: Redefining the Status Quo

pg11_ONsemi_thumb

For quite some time the semiconductor industry has focused on the needs of heightened market segments related to the IoT. ON Semiconductor does in fact offer power management and wireless connectivity, but sensors are what these systems require to interact with any physical elements. The boundaries of what a sensor can do or achieve is […]
