30V Power MOSFETs for DC/DC Converters

ROHM has recently announced the development of power MOSFETs for low-voltage DC/DC converters used in servers, notebook PCs, and tablet PCs. This new series features high efficiency and is available in 16 different models and 3 space-saving package types for broad compatibility.

The increasing performance of servers and notebook PCs has led to a rise in power consumption and a drop in operating voltages across the CPU and other circuitry, increasing temperature while shortening life. In order to alleviate this, power MOSFETs are being mounted in a wide variety of power supply circuits, such as synchronous rectification DC/DC converters that play a key role in power conversion efficiency. However, for a power MOSFET to achieve low loss and high efficiency it is necessary to reduce both ON resistance and gate capacitance – impossible to achieve before now.

ROHM's latest power MOSFETs feature simultaneously low gate capacitance and low ON resistance through a proprietary low-capacitance structure along with a new 'trench-type field plate structure' and advanced miniaturization technology. As a result, FOM (Figure of Merit, a performance indicator of power MOSFETs for DC/DC converters) is reduced 50% compared with conventional products, achieving industry-leading switching performance. This minimizes both switching loss at the high side of a synchronous rectification DC/DC power supply circuit and conduction loss on the low side, increasing the efficiency of the entire system. It also allows for synchronous rectification at high frequency, making it possible to use smaller peripheral components. In addition, ROHM conducts 100% testing of Rg (gate resistance) and UIS (low-load avalanche capacity) to ensure optimum performance and reliability in synchronous rectification circuits.

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 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.
