1.5A, 3A Buck LED Drivers Target ISO26262 automotive and industrial applications

MILPITAS, Calif., Dec. 18, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- AMS, the Analog Mixed-Signal division of ISSI, has introduced a family of switching buck LED Drivers for automotive and industrial applications. This family of highly integrated switching constant current buck LED Drivers are targeted for 12V/24V battery connected, space-constrained, electromagnetic (EMC) sensitive applications such as Headlight, Front and Rear Fog lights, Day time Running lights to name a few.

The device family supports a wide DC voltage input range of 4.5V to 38V and outputs a 5% regulated current of 1.5A or 3A; depending on the particular device, see table.  The integrated power MOSFET is configured to switch in the constant on-time mode delivering true average current.  Switching at a frequency of up to 2MHz which is adjustable with an external resistor, these buck LED Drivers can use smaller output inductor and capacitor values thereby reducing total size and cost.  The frequency adjust capability allows the designer flexibility in selecting the optimum switching frequency to avoid disrupting the AM broadcast or sensitive vehicle RF components.

The family of switching regulators also features a spread spectrum function to modulate the internal oscillator about the configured operating frequency.  This modulation or dithering of the frequency will optimize EMI (Electromagnetic Interference) to spread the total electromagnetic emitting energy into a wider range that significantly degrades the peak energy of EMI.  With spread spectrum, EMI tests can be passed with a smaller size and lower cost filter circuit.

The devices come in a small space-saving and thermally enhanced SOP-8-EP package.  An external control pin accepts a PWM signal to enable the dimming of high brightness LEDs. Comprehensive protection against possible fault conditions caused by short or open circuits is also included, along with over-temperature protection.  “Our feature rich family of buck LED drivers are optimized for ease of system design and improved system reliability in critical automotive lighting applications such as Headlights, DRL’s, and Front and Rear Fog Lamps,” remarked Venkatesh Shan, VP of Analog Products at ISSI.  “Our family of high power LED drivers provide the notification of a fault condition so as to adhere to the ISO 26262 standard for functional safety in road vehicles.”

Calgon Carbon Corporation Announces Global Price Increase17.1.2019 17:16Pressemelding

Pittsburgh, PA, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Calgon Carbon Corporation today announced a global price increase, effective February 1, 2019, where contracts permit, on all activated carbon products and related equipment due to a continued escalation in raw material costs and transportation expenses. The increase is expected to range between 10-15%, depending on the specific product, raw material type, services provided, and global market dynamics. The primary raw materials used for producing activated carbon are coal, coconut shell, and wood, each of which has gone up in price. Additionally, costs associated with both operating manufacturing facilities and transporting materials have also escalated. “Calgon Carbon’s raw material costs have increased significantly. Despite every effort to offset these increases through continuous improvements, the recent rise in raw material costs has exceeded our efforts,” said Jim Coccagno, Chief Commercial Officer for Calgon Carbon Corporation. “

Taconic Biosciences’ Animals Complete Most Recent Mission to the International Space Station17.1.2019 15:29Pressemelding

RENSSELAER, N.Y., Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Taconic Biosciences, a global leader in providing genetically engineered rodent model solutions, announces the completion of a recent mission to the International Space Station. This project represents a collaboration between the International Space Station (ISS) National Lab, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA), Bioserve Space Technologies with support from the Leidos Corporation, and Taconic. Taconic has participated in several spaceflight missions with NASA since 1985. Most recently, as part of the science and research investigation payloads supported by the SpaceX Commercial Resupply Services missions, Taconic prepared mice to live aboard the International Space Station for extended periods. Previous spaceflight studies demonstrated that mice undergo rapid loss of muscle and bone mass, resembling accelerated aging. Therefore, mice exposed to microgravity via spaceflight are a valuable model to understand and devel

MPP Global Bridges the Innovation Gap by Centralising Physical and Digital Subscriber Management and Billing in a Single Cloud Platform17.1.2019 12:29Pressemelding

WARRINGTON, UK, Jan. 17, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MPP Global, the technology company that delivers eSuite, the world’s smartest subscriber management & billing platform, announces the launch of pivotal new functionality which enables media organisations to seamlessly create and manage the sale of physical subscriptions. This positions eSuite as the complete physical and digital subscription management solution. The development of this industry-first functionality was borne out of the common challenge for publishers when managing multiple systems for deploying bundled print and digital subscriptions. This is inflexible for publishers and limits choice for their customers, restricting the ability to seamlessly create and offer digital and print subscription bundles. Despite increased consumer uptake of digital subscriptions, print still accounts for almost 90% of circulation revenues globally. To drive reader revenues successfully, publishers require functionality to execute complementar
