One of the well-established key requirements in solar inverters is their high efficiency. But also, their costs, size and weight are subject to continuous improvements. One approach to better fulfil all these demanding requirements simultaneously is the use of multilevel topologies.
The SPM series power inductors are the metal composite type wire-wound inductors that have the coils integrally molded with metallic magnetic powder. Compared to ferrite-base wire-wound inductors, the SPM series inductors realize larger current, lower Rdc, smaller size and superior DC bias characteristic.
ROHM developed automotive-grade LDO regulator ICs: the BUxxJA3DG-C series (BU12JA3DG-C, BU15JA3DG-C, BU18JA3DG-C, BU25JA3DG-C, BU30JA3DG-C, BU33JA3DG-C). The devices are designed for automotive applications such as sensors for ADAS (Advanced Driver Assistance Systems) which have become smaller and more powerful.
The power inductor BCL series for automotive is compact inductors with high inductance by using TDK’s proprietary material technology and structural design. The use of metallic magnetic core material allows for higher currents than ferrite-based products and a wider operating temperature range, making them suitable for automotives with very high temperature environment.
TDK, a world leader in material technologies, manufacturing and electronic components, has recently developed and released a state-of-the-art, Qi compliant planar wireless power coil utilizing a unique copper patterning technology that provides multiple end-user benefits. The Wireless Power Consortium [WPC] has designated this new coil as MP-A28, while the corresponding TDK part number is WCT38466-N0E0SST01.
More and more data volumes require increasing computing power in data centers, which leads to a significant increase in power consumption. One approach to meet this requirements is to switch from 12 V to 48 V systems which request 100 V capacitors.
