Unitrode Corp. (Merrimack, NH) recently announced the bq2052 Benchmarq Gas Gauge IC for capacity monitoring of primary lithium battery packs. The bq2052 monitors critical parameters of Lithium Sulfur Dioxide (LiSO2) and Lithium Manganese Dioxide (LiMnO2) battery packs, by using the latest Unitrode gas gauge platform. Both battery pack types are extensively used in military communication […]
American Power Conversion (APC, West Kingston, RI) recently announced that it is expanding its three-phase on-line power protection solutions in North America with the Silcon DP300E 240kVA/kW and 320kVA/kW units. Both UPSs possess the patented Delta Conversion On-line technology. This latest generation of three-phase technology was designed more specifically for current and future technology applications […]
Texas Instruments (TI, Dallas, TX) recently introduced four new families of 500mA and 750mA low-dropout voltage regulators (LDOs). These devices are designed to prolong life in DSP-based applications or portable systems. They offer a transient response time of just two microseconds (0mA to 500mA), allowing designers to improve their system reliability while maintaining a well-regulated […]
Tripp Lite (Chicago) introduces new Unison true on-line UPS systems in the 1,000VA to 2,200VA range. Unison 1kVA, model SU1000RT (Rack/Tower), and 2.2kVA, model SU2200RT, UPS Systems allow users to utilize them in either rackmount or tower applications without additional expense. The SU1000RT and SU2200RT UPSs require only 2U rack space when used in rackmount […]
