Enpirion Announces EN2300 Family of 12 Volt Integrated Power IC Solutions Delivering the Industry’s Highest Power Density

Enpirion announced the availability of the EN2300 family of fully integrated 12 Volt DC-DC converters, implemented in the company’s industry leading power MOSFET technology with double the power density over alternative solutions. As the leader of integrated power IC solutions, this introduction underscores Enpirion’s continued focus on miniaturizing DC-DC power systems in applications such as telecommunication, enterprise, industrial, embedded computing, and storage systems. The addition of the EN2340QI 4 Amp, EN2360QI 6 Amp, EN2390QI 9 Amp, and EN23F0QI 15 Amp devices further broadens Enpirion’s extensive PowerSoC (power-system-on-chip) portfolio. These devices capitalize on Enpirion’s field proven PowerSoC technology, which integrates the controller, power MOSFETs, high frequency input capacitors, compensation network and inductor. The EN2300 family offers small solution sizes with uncompromised performance, highest reliability, and a 45 percent reduction in time to market. Customers have already validated these benefits with more than 50 design wins ahead of the official market release.

Enpirion’s proprietary high-speed transistor structure implemented in 0.18u LDMOS process achieves the industry’s best Figure of Merit (FOM = Gate Charge x On-state Resistance in units of milli-ohm nano-coulombs) to operate at high frequency while reducing switching losses. “Enpirion focuses on driving high speed, low-loss power MOSFET technology as the key enabler for delivering the highest efficiency solutions with leading power density,” says Dr. Ashraf Lotfi, Enpirion Chief Technology Officer. “Our technology FOM of 20 provides a 40% improvement over alternative LDMOS, 73% versus VDMOS, and 33% better than high performance GaN.”

The EN2300 devices offer compact solution footprints from 4 Amp at 190mm2 to 15 Amp at 308mm2 which represents up to a sixty percent area reduction versus competing alternatives at comparable performance. The devices support an input voltage range of 4.5 to 14V and an output voltage range of 0.6 to 5V.

“The broad market push towards reducing power, space, and cost while improving reliability is driving the accelerated migration from traditional DC-DC converters to integrated power-systems-in-a-package at a projected compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 34.4% from 2011 to 2016,” said Jeff Shepard, President of Darnell Group, the leading source for worldwide strategic information covering the full spectrum of power electronics. “Enpirion’s new EN2300 family is a strong addition to the company’s already successful DC-DC PowerSoC portfolio and exemplifies the types of products we consider key in enabling this rapid growth.”

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…

TURCK M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
