IR Introduces Third Generation, Highly Integrated, Feature-Rich SupIRBuck® Point-Of-Load Voltage Regulators for Netcom, Server and Storage Applications

International Rectifier, IR® (NYSE: IRF), a world leader in power management technology, today introduced its third generation of integrated, feature-rich SupIRBuck® synchronous buck voltage regulators designed to address the new requirements of emerging energy efficient netcom, server and storage applications.

The new SupIRBuck single output devices feature a newly patented modulator scheme that generates the industry’s smallest, jitter free pulse widths. The ability to generate narrow pulses coupled with robust source/sync current handling capability makes this family ideal for generating DDR memory termination voltage directly from 12Vin.

“With this third generation of SupIRBuck devices, IR has addressed the challenges of high frequency, narrow duty cycle operation. By dramatically reducing jitter for pulse widths as small as 50ns, IR has enabled customers to have higher closed loop bandwidth resulting in even better transient response and lower output capacitance. In addition, the integration of a smart LDO has further increased the SupIRBuck’s industry leading efficiency within the same compact footprint” said Cecilia Contenti, IR’s POL Product Marketing Manager, Enterprise Power Business Unit.

In addition to standard SupIRBuck features of switching frequency up to 1.5MHz, pre-biased start-up, input voltage aware enable, tracking and programmable power-good, these third generation SupIRBuck devices offer a host of additional features and improvements compared with previous generation devices to address the needs of telecom, netcom, server and storage customers including reference voltage accuracy of 0.5%, enhanced line/load regulation with input voltage feed-forward and thermal compensation for current limit. Other enhancements include analog input for margining, PLL for smooth external frequency synchronization, start/stop ramp and minimum input voltage of 1.0V.

The IR3894 and IR3895 SupIRBuck voltage regulators and trackers integrate IR’s latest generation high performance controller with power MOSFETs in a slim PQFN 5x6mm package, and deliver 12A and 16A output current respectively to achieve more than 96% peak efficiency. The IR3897, IR3898 and IR3899 deliver 4A, 6A and 9A respectively in a 4x5mm package. These are ideal for low duty cycle single input applications, from 5V or 6.8V to 21V with operating junction temperatures of -40oC to 125oC. The common footprint of the devices provides design flexibility and allows cut-and-paste layout for fast time-to-market.

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.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
