Digitally Enhanced Power Analog (DEPA) buck controller

A new Digitally Enhanced Power Analog (DEPA) buck controller for DC-DC power conversion is now available from Microchip Technology Inc. This device offers more flexibility than any other analog control architecture on the market today. The single-chip solution controls DC-DC converters and is capable of accepting a high-voltage input (up to 42V) while simultaneously regulating a wide output voltage range (0.3V to 16V without any external components or drivers).

32.768 kHz oscillator module consumes less power

Grenchen, Switzerland, March 8 2017 – Micro Crystal, the leading provider for quartz crystals, oscillators, OCXOs and Real-Time Clocks for the world’s leading electronics industry now offers the popular oscillator in the advanced tiny package of just 1.2 * 2.0 * 0.7 mm. This hermetically sealed package hosts the integrated circuit together with the XTAL. It withstands harsh environmental condition. Aside the large supply voltage range it features very low power consumption. In active mode it draws as low as 1 μA driving one CMOS load. Since the oscillator is running also in stand-by mode (i= 0.45 μA) the accurate frequency is available instantaneously, no delayed startup time, as typical e.g. for AT-oscillator, must be cared for. Through factory calibration the accuracy is superior to solutions with external XTAL.

The wide supply voltage range of 1.6 to 5.5 V combined with the large operating temperature range of -40°C to + 85°C, low power consumption and small package size makes it ideal for future applications.
