ON Semiconductor and PowerSphyr Inc. have come together to form an alliance in order to develop and market one of the industry’s most promising wireless power solutions for the consumer electronic devices and the fast-growing IoT space. As per the agreement, ON Semiconductor is required to integrate its efficient power management components with PowerSphyr’s wireless power transfer (WPT) technology. It combines near-field and far-field wireless charging so as to create a new class of chipsets targeted at Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs).
On Semiconductor, a leading provider of semiconductor-based solutions has rolled out new image sensors for improving the performance of industrial imaging applications that require both high-resolution image capture and maximum image uniformity. The new 29-megapixel KAI-29052 sensor offers up to twice the imaging sensitivity of the existing unit in the wavelength range of 500 nanometers (nm) to 1050 nm. This enhanced performance is particularly beneficial to the applications operating in near-infrared (NIR) wavelengths like 850 nm. The superior pixel design retains isolation of charge from one photodiode to another, enabling an increase in sensitivity without much reduction in image sharpness (Modulation Transfer Function, or MTF). Besides, an improved amplifier design reduces read noise by 15% thus increasing the linear dynamic range to 66 decibels (dB).
ON Semiconductor, a leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions, has introduced an advanced synchronous rectifier (SR) controller optimised for LLC resonant converter topologies. The FAN6248 needs minimal additional components, delivers high efficiency, eases thermal management, simplifies the LLC power supplies design and improves the overall system reliability. This controller is an ideal solution for modern, high-performance, power supply units (PSU) requiring high levels of reliability and efficiency in a small space. Some of the typical applications include gaming, server and desktop computing, LCD and OLED TV, LED lighting, telecom, and networking.
ON Semiconductor and RFMicron have expanded their collaboration in order to develop an effective leak detection solution for in-line vehicle production. This RFM5126 Moisture Intrusion Detection system makes use of battery-free and wireless sensors to detect in-vehicle water leaks caused by incorrect assembly. Before the vehicles leave the factory, it is important to check them for leaks and assembly issues so as to improve outgoing quality as well as to avoid customer warranty issues. To address this issue, the new automated leak detection system has been assembled in the production line in a way that it can detect the smallest damage-inducing leaks.
ON Semiconductor has recently extended its portfolio of Interline Transfer Electron Multiplication CCD (IT-EMCCD) image sensors. The new options in the range target low-industrial applications like medical and scientific imaging, as well as, commercial and military applications for high-end surveillance. Discussing the details of the new 4 mp KAE-04471, it is equipped with larger 7.4-micron pixels than those found in the existing IT-EMCCD devices, implying twice the light gathering capability and improved image quality under light starved conditions. The device is pin and package compatible with the existing 8 mp KAE-08151. This would enable manufacturers to leverage the camera designs to support the new device.
ON Semiconductor has recently introduced AR0521 CMOS image sensor, the first imaging product based on a 2.2 micrometer (µm) Back Side Illuminated (BSI) pixel technology platform. The sensor is targeted particularly for the security and surveillance applications. Coming to the product details, the AR0521 is a small optical format 1/2.5-inch (7.13mm), 5 mp digital image sensor carrying an active pixel array of 2592 (H) x 1944 (V). It works in either linear or high dynamic range (HDR) modes with roller-shutter readout, and is equipped with sophisticated camera functions like binning, windowing, and both video and single frame modes.
On Semiconductor, one of the leading semiconductors suppliers in the world has released the FDMF8811, industry’s first 100 V Bridge Power Stage Module for the half-bridge and full-bridge isolated DC-DC converters. It’s a 25 A-rated device integrating 120 V driver IC, a bootstrap diode and two highly efficient power MOSFETs in a PQFN-36 package. The newly-introduced module is capable enough to reduce the board area required for dc-dc converter designs by one-third and hence allows engineers to design smaller systems. In fact, it even facilitates increased power delivery within the existing board area. The FDMF8811 can be utilised for applications like wireless base stations, power modules, isolated DC-DC converter, and industrial applications including motor drives, HVAC, and fans.
ON Semiconductor, a leading supplier of semiconductor-based solutions, is aiming to enhance patient safety in digital radiography by releasing a new CCD (Charge-Couple Device) Sensor. The new high sensitivity device offers video imaging under reduced x-ray dosage conditions. The critical image performance of the new KAF-09001 is similar to that of the existing KAF-09000, which is currently used for digital radiography image capture. However, the former features an improved output architecture that supports a high sensitivity video mode, thereby facilitating patient positioning while minimizing overall x-ray exposure. Discussing the specifications of the new device, it carries a resolution of 9 megapixels and shares the same high sensitivity, low-noise 12 micron (µm) pixels with its predecessor.
