  • 5V 30MHz dual op-amp has 50µV input offset
    STMicroelectronics has added a 30MHz 50µV input offset dual device to its 5V op amp family. Called TSV782 and working down to 2V, allowing it to use the same power rail as low-voltage logic devices, and consumption is 3.3mA/channel – there is no shut-down pin to reduce this. Slew rate is...

  • STM starts parallel ‘unofficial’ GitHub for less formal code
    STMicroelectronics has started a second STM32 entry on GitHub alongside its official STM32 GitHub for the microcontroller family. Called STM32 Hotspot, it “contains non-productised code created by ST’s in-house engineers, originally written for purposes such as exhibition demonstrations and proof-of-concept models. Code examples like these would typically not be shared...

  • 3A buck converters are I2C-programmable on-the-fly
    Halo Microelectronics is aiming at portable systems with dynamic voltage scaling with a pair of 3A synchronous buck converter that can be programmed on-the-fly over I2C for output voltage and output slew rate. Both run from 2.5 to 5.5V, and are available in multiple variants that affect output characteristics. HL7593...

  • 1,200V SiC T-switch for three-level converters, and a bridge too
    STMicroelectronics has released a silicon carbide T-switch module for three-level dc-dc converter topologies (right), and also a single-phase full-bridge. Both are rated at 1.2kV, 75A and contain four of the company’s second-generation 13mΩ SiC mosfets, in its 48 x 57mm Acepack power package which can be press-fitted or soldered. The...
