Holt Integrated Circuits
(Mission Viejo, CA) has announced
validation of its latest ARINC 429
line receiver family, HI-8450/1
and HI-8454/5—with the lightning
requirements of RTCA/DO-160G,
Section 22, Level 3 Pin Injection Test
Waveform Set A ( 3 & 4)—Set B ( 3 &
5A) and Set Z ( 3 & 5B)—using no additional external components. Features include:
■ Availability in industrial –40° to +85°C and extended –55°
to +125°C temperature ranges.
■ Optional burn-in.
■ Operation from either a 3. 3 or 5 V supply.
Single Connector Solution
Molex Incorporated (Lisle, IL) has introduced its IllumiMate
1.00 and 1.25 mm pitch wire-to-board connector system, offering
flat-panel LED television and PC monitor manufacturers a range
of mating styles, voltage ratings, circuit sizes, and locking types.
■ Positive and friction locks for secure latching and space savings.
■ Anti wire-tangling.
■ A middle friction lock with window for visible mating assurance.
■ Polarization guide ribs that protect the pins while preventing
■ Wide front solder tabs for strong PCB retention.
■ A dual-contact terminal design.
Current Sensing IC Boosts Overall
International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) has announced the robust
IR25750 general purpose current sensing IC available in an ultra-compact
SOT23-5L package that boosts overall system efficiency while delivering
space savings for high current applications.
■ A 600 V blocking capability for
blocking high VDS or VCE
voltages during the switch
■ A low gate input capacitance.
■ An internal filter delay at
turn-on (200 nsec typical).
■ Internal 20. 8 V zener clamps
on GATE and CS pins.
■ Integrated ESD and latch
immunity on all inputs and
outputs for rugged monolithic
System Management Reference Design
for Lithium Batteries
ams AG (Austria) has introduced an example design for lithium pedelec/
e-bike batteries that implements accurate cell monitoring and balancing without the need for a
microcontroller in the Battery
Management System (BMS).
■ A design for a 48 V
■ Up to 14 lithium-ion cells.
■ 2 AS8506 smart cell
■ The inclusion of built-in logic functions for controlling cell safety,
protection, and balancing.
