Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range

Railway DC/DC converters feature ultra wide input range
When planning a universally applicable railway device typically at least three versions of the same design are necessary to cover all standard supply voltages in railway vehicles ranging from a nominal 24-110VDC. This causes additional complications, which can be avoided by using RECOM’s newly developed DC/DC railway converters with ultra-wide input voltage, which allow for all-in-one solutions.

App prevents the pain of non-starts this winter

App prevents the pain of non-starts this winter
During the cold winter a dead battery is one of the most common reasons for roadside assistance, but a clever smartphone app supported by a self-installed plug-in device from Smartdriverclub, the connected car service, can help motorists avoid a nasty shock when they switch on the ignition. The smartphone app – Viewpoint – will send an alert to the motorist if it detects the battery charge is running low so that they can get the battery recharged or replaced, saving the stress of getting the problem fixed without any warning.

Synchronous step-down switching regulator offers 94% efficiency

Synchronous step-down switching regulator offers 94% efficiency
A dual 4A, 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator has been announced by Analog Devices, which recently acquired Linear Technology. The LT8650S's Silent Switcher2 architecture uses four internal input capacitors as well as two internal BST and a single INTVCC capacitor to minimise the area of the hot loops. Combined with well controlled switching edges and an internal construction using copper pillars in lieu of bond wires and an integral ground plane, the LT8650S’s design reduces EMI emissions.
