Panthronics has increased system efficiency by 18 per cent in its transmitter design for the PTX130WNFC charging transmitter. It is claimed to be the industry’s highest output power for faster NFC charging. It is based on sine wave architecture to offer simpler antenna matching, a smaller bill of materials (BoM) and high tolerance of antenna misalignment.
Evaluation board verifies battery management for the IoT
To verify operation of battery management in electronic devices such as wearables, industrial IoT products, such as smart cards and electronics shelf labels as well as portable devices, Rohm has developed the REFLVBMS001-EVK-001.
Torex expands its low quiescent current inductor range
Inductors with a built-in, step-down DC/DC converter make up the XCL232 series from Torex Semiconductor.
Battery management IC monitors can shrink final form factors
Charge and fuel gauge accuracy in a smaller solution size can be realised with the MAX17330 by Analog Devices. It includes AccuCharge technology with integrated fuel gauge and battery protection for one-cell lithium-ion/polymer batteries to extend battery runtimes.
