STMicroelectronics’ 200W Digital-Power Solution for LED Televisions Beats Toughest Eco-Design Standards

Geneva, September 2, 2021 – The STEVAL-NRG011TV board from STMicroelectronics helps designers quickly build 200W digital power supplies and adapters for LED and OLED televisions to exceed the toughest energy-efficiency and standby regulations.

Based on ST’s STNRG011 digital PFC (power-factor correction) and resonant LLC converter, the STEVAL-NRG011TV combines a proven and reliable topology with the ability to configure and fine-tune the operating parameters for optimal performance. No coding is needed as the digital control algorithms are permanently programmed in the controller’s ROM and the board comes with a complete set of sample parameters stored in programmable non-volatile memory (NVM).

The STEVAL-NRG011TV provides a 12V/4A regulated output to power the television’s controller and audio subsystem and a 65V/2.5A output for LED backlighting. The wide AC input-voltage range, from 90V to 264V, allows use in power supplies and adapters to be marketed worldwide. The performance goes beyond today’s highest eco-design specifications, achieving full-load efficiency over 91% at 115V and 230V AC and no-load mains consumption below 120mW.

The STNRG011 at the heart of the board provides a highly integrated solution for power-factor-corrected, high-efficiency converters. Included on-chip is an 8-bit CPU subsystem, control logic including PFC and LLC event-driven state machines (SMEDs), an analog-to-digital converter (ADC), high-voltage startup circuitry, power management, and protection. A two-wire interface handles communication with the external EEPROM as well as remote monitoring and software updates. Housed in a 20-pin SO20 power package, this device enables a simplified board layout and compact dimensions.

The STEVAL-NRG011TV is available now for $195.00. The STNRG011 is in full production, priced from $1.56 for orders of 1000 pieces.

Introducing new dynamic features for exterior automotive lights with DLP® technology

Sponsored by Texas Instruments

Exterior lighting, primarily used to illuminate ground areas near the vehicle door, can now be transformed into a projection system used for both vehicle communication and unique styling features. A small lighting module that utilizes automotive-grade digital micromirror devices, such as the DLP2021-Q1 or DLP3021-Q1, can display an endless number of patterns in any color imaginable as well as communicate warnings and alerts to drivers and other vehicles.

Machine-Learning Optimized Chip Design -- Cadence Design Systems

Sponsored by Cadence Design Systems

New applications and technology are driving demand for even more compute and functionality in the devices we use every day. System on chip (SoC) designs are quickly migrating to new process nodes, and rapidly growing in size and complexity. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton chats with Rod Metcalfe about how machine learning combined with distributed computing offers new capabilities to automate and scale RTL to GDS chip implementation flows, enabling design teams to support more, and increasingly complex, SoC projects.
