Programmable Hex voltage supervisor has 1% threshold accuracy & built-in EEPROM
Linear Technology’s new LTC2933 programmable voltage supervisor comes with built-in EEPROM for simultaneous, accurate monitoring of up to six voltage rails from 0.2V to 13.9V. Requiring no external resistors to set thresholds it provides an I²C/SMBus interface to access onboard EEPROM, so users can configure the device and review faults or violation history through the easy-to-use LTpowerPlay graphical user interface.
Current-sensing solution for battery management systems needs no shunt resistor
ams has introduced a reference design board which measures current to an accuracy of ±1% by monitoring the voltage drop across a copper track on a PCB. This new technique, which uses the ams AS8510 data-acquisition front end, enables designers of Battery Management Systems (BMS) to reduce bill-of-materials cost by eliminating the precision shunt resistor normally used in current-sensing applications.
Low capacitance, low clamping voltage ESD protection devices target next generation interfaces
ON Semiconductor has introduced five new electro-static discharge (ESD) suppression devices for more advanced interfaces. Patent pending design techniques and process technology enable these devices to deliver the industry’s lowest capacitance and ESD clamping voltage, suitable for use with extremely high data rate interfaces and small geometry chipsets.
