By using interoperable digital power converters based on rapidly developing AMP Group standards, designers can ensure design longevity and supply-chain continuity.
Designers can choose from a number of current-sense transducer types, such as Hall sensors, Rogowski coils or current transformers, depending on application.
Higher power, higher efficiency, and other benefits of using GaN-based eighth-brick converters.
AMP memebers, CUI, Ericsson, and Murata, are using newer and higher standards to create a multi-source business environment for digital power supplies.
Eighth-brick converters with higher efficiency, digital control and at lower cost from suppliers including CUI, Vicor, Murata Power Solutions, and more.
With advances in power semiconductors, converter architectures, magnetics, and packaging in the last two decades, power levels once available only from large-size, isolated modules have migrated downward.
Using DC/DC isolated converter power module 1/8 & 1/16 brick in place of the previous generations larger device & the PCB real estate it saves.
DC/DC isolated power converters adhering to a 1/8, 1/16, and 1/32 standardized brick formats offer a number of advantages to design engineers looking for a modular isolated power supply for board mounting.
As electronic systems continue to trend toward lower voltages with higher currents, the power systems designer is challenged to provide small, cost-effective, and efficient solutions that offer the requisite performance.
The "wall-wart" moniker that afflicts the myriad of offline AC-DC power-supply adapters that litter homes and offices around the globe is clearly not an endearing one.
Being a resourceful species, it did not take long for engineers to realize that running two sets of cables -one for communications; the other for power -to remote devices such as security cameras was expensive and tedious.
Historically, the dc/dc converter module market has been applications-driven with sales to the communications segment leading the way.
A smart sensor, according to generally accepted industry definitions, combines a sensing element, analog interface circuit, an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), and a bus interface, all in one housing.
