Honeywell Introduces New Evaluation Kits to Help Engineers Simplify Pressure Sensor Testing Process

Honeywell announced a new cost-effective method for customers to test the capabilities of its sensors, allowing for faster and more efficient component decisions and a speedier product development process.

With the new sensor evaluation kits, engineers can perform a thorough evaluation of Honeywell’s TruStability™ pressure sensor series without needing to develop additional software code or spin a new printed circuit board. This helps them make more informed decisions during product development.
The kits allow for easier demonstrating and evaluating Honeywell’s TruStability RSC series as well as the digital output versions of the HSC series … Read More → "Honeywell Introduces New Evaluation Kits to Help Engineers Simplify Pressure Sensor Testing Process"

750mA, 42VIN Synchronous Step-Down DC/DC Converter Delivers 93% Efficiency at 2MHz from a 2mm x 2mm DFN Package

MILPITAS, CA & NORWOOD, MA – June 19, 2017 – Analog Devices, Inc., which recently acquired Linear Technology Corporation, announces the LT8607, a 750mA, 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. A unique synchronous rectification topology delivers 93% efficiency while switching at 2MHz, enabling designers to avoid critical noise-sensitive frequency bands, such as AM radio while using a very compact solution footprint. Burst Mode® operation keeps quiescent current under 3µA in no-load standby conditions, ideal for always-on systems. The device’s 3.0V to 42V input voltage range is well suited for automotive applications that must regulate through cold-crank and stop-start scenarios with minimum input voltages as … Read More → "750mA, 42VIN Synchronous Step-Down DC/DC Converter Delivers 93% Efficiency at 2MHz from a 2mm x 2mm DFN Package"
