Renesas Electronics introduces 16 V input capable synchronous buck regulators that deliver up to 3 A continuous current to loads at voltages as low as 0. 8 V. The power supply ICs are suitable for systems requiring low power consumption in standby mode and backup power in case of power outage.
XP Power has announced the SDH400 series of single- and dual-output 400 W highly efficient convection-cooled power supplies. The compact 1U profile chassis-mount supplies, measuring 203 x 127 x 40.64 mm, can deliver the full 400 W output without the need for any cooling fans or forced air flow.
The Maxim MAXREFDES24 Alameda Reference Design provides programmable voltage and current outputs in a compact, galvanically isolated form factor. Alameda provides a debugged and ready-to-go circuit for programmable logic controllers (PLCs) and other industrial applications that require precision voltage and current control.
Designed for a range of cost-critical applications, Traco Power's TXM encased power supplies are now available. The units feature a low-profile metal case and screw-terminal block connection, making them easy to install.
Nordic Semiconductor S120 8-link central protocol stack and nRF51 wireless-charging software development kit08 January, 2014
Nordic Semiconductor has announced the S120 8-link central protocol stack and nRF51 wireless-charging software development kit (SDK) for wireless-charging applications based on the Rezence standard. Rezence is a wireless power-transfer technology and specification based on the principles of magnetic resonance.
Vishay Intertechnology has announced a powdered-iron-based, WPC-compliant (wireless power consortium) wireless charging receiving coil optimised for use with or without an alignment magnet. Offering durable construction and high permeability shielding, the IWAS-4832EC-50 provides high efficiency greater than 75% for the wireless charging of 7 V portable electronics. The coil has been designed into a wireless power development kit.
This article introduces how you might implement design ideas and design methods of power supplies, which are essentially the energy heart of every system, encompassing the whole machine and its electromagnetic compatibility problems.

Robots could reduce their power consumption by as much as 10-fold by ‘stutter jumping’ - taking a short hop before a big jump.
I don’t know about you but I am mightily underwhelmed by hybrid cars. True, they are full of sophisticated electronics and true they do go some way towards satisfying the consciences of greenies. But, on the down side, they are expensive, they are complex, they have limited range in their electrical mode and there are few places to charge the batteries other than in your own garage. To me they are bisexual products of a motor industry that has reluctantly pandered to ill-conceived demands from governments intent on being seen to be saving the planet.
After years of being relatively static, the climate is now ripe for innovation in the area of electronics. Many businesses will be seeking their slice of this ‘new’ sector. Download this white paper to find out how smart metering is gearing up to be a truly transformative new technology.
The Xantrex XKW 3 kW programmable DC power supply is a compact device that provides power for OEM applications where high power and a wide adjustment of output voltage or current are required.
