Make Your Small Asset Tracker Last Longer
Asset trackers, depending on their specific application, must operate in the field for several weeks to a few years powered only by small batteries. . The MAX3864x nanoPower buck converter family, with its high efficiency and small size, provides an ideal power solution for asset tracking applications.
Industrial Digital Inputs: They’re Not Quite as Simple as Counting from 0 to 1
The MAX22190 is an IEC 61131-2 compliant industrial digital input device which translates eight, 24V current-sinking, industrial inputs to a serialized SPI compatible output that interfaces with 3V to 5.5V logic.
How to Power the Automotive TFT-LCD Displays of the (Not so Distant) Future
The article reviews the shortcomings of a power management solution with low integration and introduced the MAX20069, a single-chip PMIC solution that tightly integrates the various voltage rails and serial communication. This new solution easily performs the required diagnostics to meet stringent ASIL-B safety ratings while reducing the PCB space needed for tight automotive applications.
How to Miniaturize Your Automotive Remote Camera
Remote camera modules, which include on-board power management systems, must be small, efficient, and cost-effective. Typical power management solutions are space and power inefficient since they utilize multiple ICs and operate with suboptimal efficiency. The MAX20019 dual-buck converter, optimized for cascaded operation, enables remote camera power management solutions that occupy a fraction of the typical PCB space while preserving high levels of efficiency.
