New family of adaptable buck-boost converters delivers up to 2.5 A in a tiny footprint to shrink board space
11/08/2019 | 435Texas Instruments (TI) introduced a family of four high-efficiency, low-quiescent-current (IQ) buck-boost converters that feature tiny packaging with minimal external components for a small solution size. The integrated TPS63802, TPS63805, TPS63806 and TPS63810 DC/DC noninverting buck-boost converters offer wide input and output voltage ranges that scale to support multiple battery-driven applications, helping engineers simplify and accelerate their designs.
No trade-offs: Industry's lowest quiescent current, ultra-small LDO linear regulator can help double battery life in power-sensitive industrial and personal electronics
10/15/2019 | 54Texas Instruments (TI) introduced an ultra-low-power low-dropout (LDO) linear voltage regulator with the industry’s lowest quiescent current (IQ) of sub-25 nA – one-tenth that of competing ultra-small devices. The new regulator features low IQ control at light loads even in dropout conditions, allowing engineers to at least double the battery life of their applications.
New power switching regulator with the industry's lowest quiescent current extends battery life in Internet of Things designs
10/04/2019 | 49Texas Instruments introduced an ultra-low-power switching regulator with the industry’s lowest operating quiescent current (IQ) at 60 nA – 1/3 that of the nearest competitive device. The TPS62840 synchronous step-down converter delivers very high light-load efficiency of 80% at 1-µA load, which can enable designers to extend the battery life of their systems, or use fewer or smaller batteries to shrink their overall power supply solution size and reduce cost.
07/09/2019 | 140Texas Instruments (TI) introduced an automotive system basis chip that is the industry’s first to integrate a controller and transceiver for Controller Area Network with Flexible Data Rate (CAN FD). Designed to meet the high-bandwidth and data-rate flexibility needs of in-vehicle networks, the TCAN4550-Q1 uses the Serial Peripheral Interface (SPI) bus of almost any microcontroller to implement, with minimal hardware changes, a CAN FD interface or increase the amount of CAN FD bus ports in a system.
TI enables greater system reliability in hybrid and electric vehicles with highly accurate monitoring and protection
05/10/2019 | 201Texas Instruments introduced fully tested reference designs for battery management and traction inverter systems, along with new analog circuits with advanced monitoring and protection features to help reduce carbon dioxide emissions and enable hybrid electric vehicles and electric vehicles (HEV/EVs) to drive farther and longer.
Industry's first integrated quad- and dual-channel RF-sampling transceivers enable multiantenna wideband systems
04/02/2019 | 137Texas Instruments introduced two new RF-sampling transceivers that are the first in the industry to integrate four analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) and four digital-to-analog converters (DACs) in a single chip. With the industry’s widest frequency range, highest instantaneous bandwidth and 75 percent smaller design footprint than a discrete solution, the quad-channel AFE7444 and dual-channel AFE7422 transceivers help engineers more easily achieve multiantenna, direct RF sampling for radar, software defined radio and wireless 5G applications.
03/19/2019 | 149Texas Instruments (TI) announced the industry’s first multiprotocol gigabit (Gb) time-sensitive networking (TSN)-enabled processor family. The new, highly integrated Sitara™ AM6x processor family provides industrial-grade reliability, with quad and dual Arm® Cortex®-A53 core variants built to meet the rapidly evolving needs of Industry 4.0 in factory automation, motor drives and grid infrastructure.
Smallest reinforced isolated CAN FD transceivers deliver the industry's highest bus fault protection
03/05/2019 | 192Texas Instruments (TI) introduced two new isolated Controller Area Network (CAN) flexible data rate (FD) transceivers that combine the industry’s highest bus fault protection, highest common-mode transient immunity (CMTI), and lowest electromagnetic emissions into a 35 percent smaller package.
02/01/2019 | 129Texas Instruments (TI) introduced four tiny precision data converters, each the industry’s smallest in its class. The new data converters enable designers to add more intelligence and functionality, while shrinking system board space. The DAC80508 and DAC70508 are eight-channel precision digital-to-analog converters (DACs) that provide true 16- and 14-bit resolution, respectively. The ADS122C04 and ADS122U04 are 24-bit precision analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) that feature a two-wire, I2C-compatible interface and a two-wire, UART-compatible interface, respectively.
01/15/2019 | 146To advance millimeter-wave (mmWave) sensor technology in worldwide industrial applications, Texas Instruments (TI) announced its 60-GHz sensor portfolio, the highest resolution single-chip, complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS), for industrial systems.
