Linear Technology | Tue, 21 May 2013
Transformers have parasitic components that can cause them to deviate from their ideal characteristics, and the parasitic capacitance associated with the secondary can cause large resonating current spikes on the leading edge of the switch current waveform. These spikes can cause the regulator to exhibit erratic operating conditions that manifests itself as duty-cycle instability. Attention to transformer design will cure this problem.
GPEG | Mon, 20 May 2013
GPEG International has introduced a purpose-built 29in panoramic TFT panel designed to offer high-resolution images in applications such as digital signage, advertising, transport, and casino gaming installations.

Linear Technology has released the LTC3639, a 150V input-capable synchronous buck converter that delivers up to 100mA of continuous output current. The device’s internal high side and synchronous power switches, drawing only 12µA at no load while maintaining output voltage regulation, make it suitable for always-on battery-powered applications.

According to Linear Technology, the safe, fast charging of nickel cadmium (NiCad) batteries is required for many applications. A short charge time requires high current. A potential difficulty with high-current charging is battery heating. Excessive internal heating degrades the battery and can cause gas venting to the outside atmosphere. Fast charge schemes based on monitoring cell voltage during charge suffer because cell voltage is not necessarily indicative of the battery’s charge ...
AVX | Wed, 15 May 2013
The leakage current of a solid tantalum capacitor is the sum of several independent factors. From measurements of leakage over a range of test conditions, some degree of separation of these components of the current can be achieved and so the relative importance of factors leading to high leakage can be assessed. There is a background level present directly related to dielectric absorption and it contributes to the loss factor of the capacitor. It is not a true leakage. On top of this ...
