The DC link capacitors are powered when switching on the DC link of frequency converters. The resulting inrush current must be limited here. Ralf Hickl, Product Sales Manager Automotive Business Unit, and Uwe Rahn, Director Automotive Business Unit, at Rutronik explain how this can be achieved with high-voltage switches.
ST Microelectronics extends its STM32 MCU product family with a high-performance and a very-high-performance series. The two Value Lines F7x0 and H7x0 (Distribution: Rutronik) give extra flexibility to create affordable performance-oriented applications including real-time IoT devices, without compromises in features or cyber protection.
Infineon's new TLE5501 products are 360° TMR-based angle sensor that detects the orientation of a magnetic field. This is achieved by measuring sine and cosine angle components with Tunneling Magneto Resistance (TMR) elements. These raw signals (sine and cosine) are provided as a differential output signal and can directly be further processed within a micro controller. The large output voltage of the...
Nordic Semiconductor has designed the nRF52840 dongle (Distribution: Rutronik) as an ideal front-end, physical gateway for the „nRF Connect for Desktop“ PC tool. It allows developers to immediately connect a PC to a wireless device. This further simplifies application design and product development process.
Beginning on September 1, 2018, no new D-class halogen light bulbs may be sold in the EU. Over the next two years, the ban will expand to include halogen lamps in other energy efficiency classes as well.
