Mixed-signal IC from International Rectifier gains certification for use in home appliances
International Rectifier has announced that its IRMCK171 one-time programmable ROM-based monolithic mixed-signal IC, for sensorless sinusoidal motor control of appliances, meets the standards of IMQ (Italy) Annex R of IEC 60335-1 Edition 4.2 - Class B software requirements.
This certification allows even further simplification and acceleration of the design process for home appliances using the IRMCK171, by reducing elements of the software testing process.
The IMQ certification also enables customers to more easily obtain the safety standard of their appliance products, which is a mandatory requirement for today’s home appliance goods.
Part of the Imotion integrated design platform for variable-speed motor control, the IRMCK171 incorporates IR’s patented Motion Control Engine (MCETM), an algorithm editor that eliminates coding.
International Rectifier has introduced the AUIRS2117S and AUIRS2118S 600V ICs for automotive gate-drive applications, including direct-injection and brushless DC motor drives.
In this video feature, Mark Thoren, applications engineering manager for mixed-signal products at Linear Technology, discusses the LTC2757 18-bit digital-to-analogue converter, which is aimed at the most demanding instrumentation and control applications where extreme accuracy and stability are paramount.
The document describes a non-isolated, high-efficiency, high-power-factor (PF) LED driver that utilises the LNK460VG from the Linkswitch-PL range of ICs from Power Integrations.
All-in-one instruments from Dewetron combine a ruggedised PC with signal conditioning, an analogue-to-digital card, software and a display.
This application note from Linear Technology is a compendium of ‘power circuits’ from the first five years of Linear Technology, and contains circuits that can power almost any system you can imagine, from desktop computer systems to micropower systems for portable and handheld equipment. Also included here are circuits that provide 300W or more of power-factor-corrected DC from a universal input. Battery chargers are included, some that charge several battery types, some that are optimised ...
