23, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- RS Components(RS), the trading brand of Electrocomponents plc(LSE:ECM), the world's leading high service distributor of electronics and maintenance products, is stocking the industry's smallest isolated DC-to-DC converters from Analog Devices (ADI), a global leader in high-performance semiconductors for signal-processing applications and a pioneer in digital isolator technology.
ADuM5010/ADuM6010 and ADuM521x/ADuM621x Isolated DC-to-DC Converter Key Features
Integrated isolated isoPower dc-to-dc converter reduces design-time and provides industries smallest footprint.
The DC-to-DC converter provides virtually no noise in light load mode and just 75uVRMS output noise in LOWQTM mode.
If the alternatives were used, such as optocouplers and separate, isolated DC-to-DC converters, the control module would be much larger than the current dimension of 380 mm x 470 mm.
Also now available are the ADuM620x series of dual-channel digital isolators that feature isoPower integrated, isolated dc-to-dc converter technology and 5-kV rms isolation rating.
ADI's isoPower dc-to-dc converter uses the same chip-scale transformer technology, but instead of transmitting data, the isoPower feature employs switches, rectifiers, and regulators to generate power that is isolated to the same degree as the data channels.
Analog Devices' new dual-channel gate driver is effective for driving high-voltage switching FETs (field-effect transistors) in synchronous rectification dc-to-dc converter applications.
The agreements will broaden the available market for eIQ Energy's vBoost DC-to-DC converter modules, and represent an important step forward in the company's distribution strategy.
ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a leading manufacturer of high-quality analog ICs for wireless applications, today announced the availability of the NCP7662 inductorless DC-to-DC converter.
The new digital isolators incorporate ADI's proprietary isoPower[R] integrated, isolated dc-to-dc converter technology, which provides up to 500 mW of regulated, isolated power at 5-V output.
Evaluation modules (EVMs) for both DC-to-DC converter families will be available in May for $50.
