Maxim Integrated – MAX14874: 4.5V to 36V Dual Relay/ Valve/Motor Driver

FTMFeb2018-AS-AC-MaximIntegratedMAX14874-tile-200x200

The MAX14874 dual push-pull driver provides a small and simple solution for driving and controlling relays and valves with voltages between 4.5V and 36V. It is also designed to drive brushed DC motors. Separate COM pins allow monitoring of individual driver load currents. Peak currents up to 2.5A ensure for PWM controlled large motor torque. […]

Maxim Integrated — PMICs for Hearables: Lowest Standby Power and High Efficiency at Less Than Half the Size

FTMJan2018-AS-Maxim-tile-200x200

Size is critical for hearables and wearables as they continue moving to smaller form factors. Most PMICs for these small, lithium-ion battery-operated devices require additional components, such as boost, buck, and low dropout (LDO) regulators; a charger; and current regulators for LED indicators. Designers of Bluetooth® headphones, activity monitors, smart garments, smartwatches, and other size-constrained […]
