Synchronous step-down converter with I2C interface

The TPS62864/6 devices from Texas Instruments are high-frequency synchronous step-down converters with I2C interface which provide an efficient, adaptive, and high power-density solution. At medium to heavy loads, the converter operates in PWM mode and automatically enters Power Save Mode operation at light load to maintain high efficiency over the entire load current range.

Electronics – 30 years of smart evolution

REO UK has produced a new infographic reflecting key changes in the electronic and electrical engineering sectors over the last 30 years. The infographic charts significant developments in a continuing electronic evolution that’s seen the rise of the Internet of Things (IoT), surgical robots, and electric vehicles (EVs).


USB Type-C DCP charge port converter with STB protection

The TPS2583x-Q1 from Texas Instruments is a USB Type-C and BC1.2 charging port controller that includes a synchronous DC/DC converter. With cable droop compensation, the VBUS voltage remains constant regardless of load current, ensuring connected portable devices are charged at optimal current and voltage.

Isolated gate drivers and EMI noise


In power electronics isolated gate drivers are used to drive power semiconductors like IGBTs and power MOSFETS. The gate drivers are used to provide galvanic isolation between the control circuits and the high voltages. As well as this, they are also used for level shifting to provide high gate voltage and current to switch the IGBT.
