TI introduces the industry's first DC/DC buck-boost converter to extend battery life by 50% and offer lowest IQ
10/06/2020 | 30Texas Instruments introduced the industry’s first DC/DC buck-boost converter to combine programmable input current limit and integrated dynamic voltage scaling to extend battery life by at least 50%. The TPS63900 maintains the industry’s lowest quiescent current (IQ), 75 nA, with 92% efficiency at 10 µA and delivers up to three times more output current than competing devices to help engineers extend the life span of battery-powered industrial and personal electronics applications.
08/25/2020 | 77Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s first zero-drift Hall-effect current sensors. The TMCS1100 and TMCS1101 enable the lowest drift and highest accuracy over time and temperature while providing reliable 3-kVrms isolation, which is especially important for AC or DC high-voltage systems such as industrial motor drives, solar inverters, energy-storage equipment and power supplies.
New buck-boost battery chargers deliver 50% greater power density and three times faster charging for USB Type-C™, USB PD and wireless dual-input charging
07/31/2020 | 156Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s smallest buck-boost battery charger integrated circuits, which integrate power-path management for maximum power density and universal and fast charging at up to 97% efficiency. The BQ25790 and BQ25792 support efficient charging and 10 times lower quiescent current through USB Type-C™ and USB Power Delivery (PD) ports in small personal electronics, portable medical devices and building automation applications.
Stackable DC/DC buck converter maximizes power density in high-current FPGA and processor power supplies
05/05/2020 | 194Texas Instruments (TI) introduced a new 40-A SWIFTTM DC/DC buck converter, offering first-of-its-kind stackability of up to four integrated circuits (ICs). The TPS546D24A PMBus buck converter can deliver up to 160 A of output current at an 85°C ambient temperature – four times more current than competing power ICs. The TPS546D24A has the highest efficiency of any 40-A DC/DC converter, allowing engineers to reduce power loss by 1.5 W in high-performance data center and enterprise computing, medical, wireless infrastructure, and wired networking applications.
Industry's first Grade 0 digital isolator enables reliable communication and protection in HEV/EV systems that exceed 125°C
04/14/2020 | 192Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s first digital isolator that is qualified to the Grade 0 ambient operating temperature specification of the Automotive Electronics Council (AEC)-Q100 standard.
04/03/2020 | 205Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the industry’s smallest 36-V, 4-A power module in a quad flat no-lead (QFN) package. The TPSM53604 DC/DC buck module’s 5-mm-by-5.5-mm footprint enables engineers to shrink the size of their power supply by 30% while reducing power loss by 50% when compared to similar competing modules.
03/24/2020 | 217Texas Instruments (TI) expanded its temperature sensing portfolio to include linear thermistors that deliver up to 50% higher accuracy than negative temperature coefficient (NTC) thermistors. The higher accuracy of TI’s thermistors enables operation closer to the thermal limits of the other components and the overall system, helping engineers maximize performance while reducing bill-of-materials (BOM) and total solution cost.
TI's EMI-optimized integrated transformer technology miniaturizes isolated power transfer into IC-sized packaging
03/10/2020 | 216Texas Instruments (TI) introduced the first integrated circuit (IC) developed with a new proprietary integrated transformer technology: a 500-mW high-efficiency isolated DC/DC converter with the industry’s lowest electromagnetic interference (EMI), the UCC12050.
New low-power, high-performance TI Jacinto™ 7 processors enable mass-market adoption of automotive ADAS and gateway technology
01/21/2020 | 244Texas Instruments introduced the new Jacinto™ 7 processor platform. Built on the foundation of TI’s decades of automotive systems and functional safety expertise, the new Jacinto processor platform brings enhanced deep learning capabilities and advanced networking to solve design challenges in advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS) and automotive gateway applications.
