Renesas Electronics Corporation, a supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, announced that hundreds of its radiation-hardened (rad-hard) integrated circuits (ICs), including over 50 different part numbers, are onboard the Artemis 1 launch that blasted off on November 16th. Intersil-brand rad-hard ICs are part of the battery management systems, RS-25 engine control electronics and the launch abort…
Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics, has announced the first 42V single-channel DC/DC step-down power module. The ISL8215M delivers up to 15A of continuous current and operates from a single wide input voltage range including industry standard 12V, 18V, and 24V intermediate bus power rails. The module offers adjustable output voltages from 0.6V to 12V and provides the highest power density of 60mA/mm2 in a 13mm x 19mm package. It’s 96.5% peak efficiency enables point-of-load (POL) conversions for FPGAs, DSPs, and MCUs in industrial, medical, RF communications, after-market automotive, and portable equipment carrying Li-ion batteries.
Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, announced two new high-speed, isolated RS-485 differential bus transceivers. These provide 40Mbps bi-directional data communication for Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) networks. The ISL32741E offers 1,000VRMS working voltage and 6kV of reinforced isolation, more than 2x higher than competitive solutions. The higher working voltage and reinforced isolation are required for today’s most rigorous medical and high-speed motor control applications.
Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, has announced the TW8844 LCD video processor that interfaces with the latest generation of automotive SoCs. It’s highly integrated first high-definition 1080p LCD processor with analog video decoder along with 2 scalers and MIPI-CSI2 SoC interface. It offers the reliability needed by automakers to ensure that the rearview camera systems comply with the U.S. Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS-111) for preventing injury or death caused by backover accidents. The sensor also allows migration from analog to digital camera systems and supports a variety of video interfaces and LCD panel resolutions up to full HD 1920 x 1080.
Intersil, a subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, has introduced a highly integrated programmable power management IC (PMIC). It delivers 91% efficiency at 1.1 V output voltage for application processors, GPUs, FPGAs, and high-performance system power.The new PMIC carries low RDS (on) MOSFETs and programmable PWM frequency which allow designers to use fewer low-profile external components, enabling a 50mm2 power-supply that is 40% smaller than competing solutions. The ISL91211 triple/quad output PMIC is ideal for smartphones, tablet computers, solid-state drives, networking and wireless Internet of Things (IoT) devices powered by single-cell Lithium-ion (Li-on) batteries, or 2.5V – 5.5V power supplies.
Intersil has filled out its 12V synchronous buck regulator portfolio with the announcement of 5 new members of the ISL850xx family. The new buck regulators step down 12V rails to point-of-load inputs (as low as 0.6V) for MCUs, FPGAs, memory, and peripheral I/Os. The new additions to the range include ISL85014, ISL85012, ISL85009, ISL85005A, and ISL85005. These deliver a continuous output current of 14A, 12A, 9A, and 5A, respectively, to telecom, test and measurement, server and storage networking equipment, as well as, industrial computers and programmable logic controllers. The ISL850xx regulators support input voltage of 3.8V to 18V and wide output current range.
Intersil, subsidiary of Renesas Electronics Corporation, has recently unveiled the ISL94202 3-to-8 cell battery pack monitor. It supports lithium-ion and other battery chemistries that are used in applications like, energy storage systems, vacuum cleaners, lawn equipment, scooter, e-bikes, and handheld power tools. Lithium-ion batteries are smaller in size, weigh less, and have a longer life as compared to other chemistries. However, these require monitoring and protection to ensure safe use. It comes with ultra-small 2-terminal designs and monitors, protects and cell balances battery packs, thereby ensuring safe operation and charging. The battery pack works as a stand-alone battery protection system by utilising an internal-state machine with 5 pre-programmed modes.
