Protection Device from Diodes Incorporated Brings Added Safety to One-Cell, Lithium-Rechargeable Battery Packs
Plano, Texas - January 26th, 2016 - Diodes Incorporated has introduced a battery protection device specifically designed for the safe operation of 1-cell lithium-ion (Li+) battery packs. The AP9211 combines a protection chip with a dual N-channel MOSFET to provide a rich set of features that include overcharge, over-discharge and load short-circuit detection. 1-cell battery packs for smart phones and power banks are the primary end-market and this protection circuit is aimed at the manufacturers of protection circuit modules who supply the battery pack makers.
Plano, Texas - December 17th, 2015 - The AL1696 LED driver introduced by Diodes Incorporated is designed to fit a wide range of triac-dimmable lighting applications, especially retrofit lamps. An integrated MOSFET, which also eliminates the need for an auxiliary winding, reduces BOM cost and component count while the option of three MOSFET voltage/current ratings provides design flexibility for meeting manufacturing requirements for residential lighting.
30V MOSFET from Diodes Incorporated Enables Rapid and Safe Discharge of Bulk Capacitors on FPGA Power Rails
Plano, Texas - October 6th, 2015 - The DMN3027LFG 30V N-channel MOSFET introduced by Diodes Incorporated is designed as a switch to rapidly and safely discharge large bulk capacitors used on FPGA power rails. The latest FPGAs found in telecoms equipment, servers and data centers have multiple power rails that need to be correctly sequenced to safely power these systems up and down. Designers of high-reliability DC-DC power supplies can achieve this quickly and easily with this new MOSFET from Diodes.
High-Voltage, Wide Temperature Range Hall Effect Latch Family from Diodes Incorporated Offers Sensitivity and Output Options
Plano, Texas - September 30th, 2015 - The AH37xx family of high-voltage Hall effect latch ICs introduced by Diodes Incorporated provides various operating magnetic thresholds to address motor control, rotational position and speed sensing requirements in a wide range of applications such as controlling the commutation of brushless DC (BLDC) motors in washing machines, dishwashers, fridge-freezers, air-conditioners, food processors, power tools and cooling fans; the measurement of speed in motors, pumps and flow meters; and contactless position sensing/indexing in printers, scanners, and window blinds.
Plano, Texas - September 22nd, 2015 - The DMN10H120SFG MOSFET introduced by Diodes Incorporated is designed as a switch for IEEE 802.3 compliant 48V Power-over- Ethernet (PoE) systems. This switch enables the delivery of power through the Ethernet cable to end-applications such as wireless access points, VoIP phones, point-of-sale terminals, call systems, IP security cameras and building management devices.
