Microsemi has announced the SmartFusion2 system-on-chip (SoC) field programmable gate array (FPGA) maker board, enabling firmware and design engineers to leverage the power of Microsemi's SmartFusion2 architecture.
STMicroelectronics' STSPIN820 is a dedicated stepper-motor driver with 256-microstep resolution. The IC enables stepper-motor-based robots to achieve smoothness and silence, with small size, precision and low power consumption.
Toshiba Electronic Devices & Storage Corporation has broadened its line-up of small surface-mount brushed motor drivers with the TB67H420FTG. The device can control two brushed motors as it incorporates a dual-bridge mode that can control each channel independently in the separated internal output unit.
Cirrus Logic's Voice Capture Development Kit for Amazon AVS is a complete solution for developing a hands-free AVS product enabled with Alexa, Amazon's intelligent voice control service.
Toshiba has added the models TC78H630FNG, TC78H621FNG and TC78H611FNGo to its line-up of H bridge driver ICs for DC brushed motors and stepping motors used in the mobile battery-drive equipment, home appliances, and housing and facility equipment.
Designers of Bluetooth headphones, activity monitors, smart garments, smart watches and other size-constrained devices can now increase battery life and efficiency using the MAX77650 and MAX77651 power management ICs (PMICs) from Maxim Integrated Products.
Scientists are using liquid metals to create integrated circuits (ICs) that are merely atoms thick, opening the way for the production of large wafers around 1.5 nm in depth.
The Infineon Technologies TLE984x LIN-based relay driver ICs bring together the ARM Cortex-M0 core and the peripherals of its predecessor TLE983x (XC800 based relay driver).
NASA scientists recently demonstrated the first prolonged operation of electronics in the harsh conditions found on Venus, in news which could enable new scientific missions to Earth's closest neighbour.
Acromag's high-performance XMC FPGA modules allow users to develop and store their own instruction sets in the FPGA for a variety of adaptive computing applications.
The STMicroelectronics BlueNRG-1 system-on-chip contains a Bluetooth low energy radio.
The Toshiba TC7739FTG is a general-purpose, multi-output system power IC equipped with DC-DC power supplies and serialised regulators.
Richardson RFPD and Power Integrations have announced a global agreement under which Richardson RFPD will distribute Power Integrations' SCALE IGBT drivers for the high-power market, as well as its SCALE-iDriver integrated circuits.
The highly integrated STBC02 IC combines frequently demanded features for energy management in wearable and portable devices, including linear battery charging, a 150 mA low dropout voltage regulator and two SPDT (single-pole/double-throw) load switches.
Using the latest electronic compass (eCompass) from STMicroelectronics, smartphones, smart watches, fitness trackers and other wearables will get better at guiding users and mapping their sporting achievements even where satellite navigation cannot work. The product is said to offer an improvement over current eCompass solutions, which can give errors of about 10°.
