To meet today’s challenge of transmitting data to a host with as little latency as possible and to simplify the interfacing with modern MCUs, processors and FPGAs, Texas Instruments has developed multiSPI™, an interface that increases data transfer rates between ADCs and digital hosts, while decreasing the required clock frequency. MultiSPI retains compatibility with standard SPI. In multiSPI, throughput is increased buy the use of 4 data output lines and double data rate transfer (DDR), which allows data transfers on both on the rising and falling edge of the SPI clock.
The energy density of Lithium-ion (Li-ion) batteries is two to ten times more than other battery technologies. But, Lithium-ion uses a flammable substance as an electrolyte. If overcharged or overheated, Li-ion cells are a fire risk. Cell balancing equalizes the voltages and state-of-charge (SOC) among the cells, when they are at full charge. Balancing can be either voltage-based or SOC-based. It’s a non-trivial task that – ideally — aims both to increase the life of a battery pack and to enhance battery safety.
The Qi wireless charging standard, backed by an association of 200-plus companies, was developed to meet the need for fast wireless charging in the portable mobile market. Rohm Semiconductor has developed a Qi-Certified Medium Power Transmitter Reference Design using its BD57020MWV wireless power transmitter IC. ROHM is the first supplier in the world to offer a reference design for medium power that has passed interoperability tests with more than 200 Qi-certified devices and has successfully acquired Qi certification under the medium power specification.
The road to zero-emission vehicles is paved with semiconductors. But the automobile is not a friendly environment: ICs face extreme voltages, currents, temperatures and vibration. Further, electric propulsion needs a battery rated in hundreds of volts, which challenges semiconductor materials, processes, designs, packages, and qualification. Managing the batteries of hybrids and full electric vehicles is a key area for innovative high-voltage technologies. Read more about it in the white paper “Driving the green revolution in transportation.”
Master Bond UV22 represents a significant breakthrough in technology to enhance product performance properties for nanotechnology. This one part, no mix nanosilica filled UV curable epoxy system features exceptional abrasion resistance, outstanding optical clarity and light transmission properties, thermal stability and high bond strength to metals, glass, ceramics, and most plastics including polycarbonates and acrylics.
Selecting the most appropriate circuit protection solution can sometimes prove time-consuming and expensive, a system of trial-and-error, with the emphasis on error that is to say, time-consuming to do properly, and potentially expensive if you don’t. Fundamentally, there are a significant number of choices out there, and with thousands of protection options to begin with, it is difficult to begin with all the possible solutions, much less narrow down to the best choice through trial-and-error.
Delivering one of its latest innovations, Linear Technology, home of the Analog Gurus, has expanded its expertise in linear IC products to create the industry’s highest performancedigital-to-analog converter(DAC), the LTC2000. End applications ranging from cable modems and other communications-based applications to test equipment and instrumentation will benefit from this leap in performance. The key to LTC2000’s leadership is in the generation of high frequency and broadbandsignals with a low noise floor and high spectral purity. As shown in figure 1, the spectral purity, as measured by the spurious-free dynamic range (SFDR), exceeds the competition by over 10dB at almost every frequency point.
