NLM0011 - First NFC configuration IC with integrated CLO - Solves LED current setting challenges, and increases LED driver market value

  Knowledge

To illuminate a light-emitting diode (LED) at a certain brightness level, an electrical circuit - the LED driver - must ensure sufficient current supply. At the same time having to avoid that the flowing current exceeds the maximum rating what would cause overheating and potentially destroy the LED. Considering that the voltage drop across an LED is approximately constant over a wide range of operating...

Multilayer Ceramic Chip Capacitors | Capacitance loss due to DC bias in MLCCs

Created by Jürgen Geier, Field Application Engineer Capacitors, Rutronik |   Knowledge

Thanks to extreme further developments, MLCCs are being used in an increasing number of applications. However, one thing is often neglected in the designs: The DC bias behavior that influences the capacitance of class 2 ceramic capacitors. This can lead to the capacitance exceeding the tolerance range of the application for apparently inexplicable reasons and possibly cause technical problems. However,...

Rutronik presents Panasonic’s compact Bluetooth Dual-Mode HCI Module

  Knowledge

Ispringen [month] – The Panasonic HCI (Host Controlled Interface) Bluetooth RF module PAN1326C2 is based on Texas Instruments’ CC2564C dual-mode Bluetooth controller that combines Bluetooth Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Low Energy (LE). The module supports up to ten BLE connections at the same time - thanks to independent buffering for LE without affecting the BR or EDR performance. It is...
