High-voltage dc/dc converter

  • 26-Jul-2010 01:50 EDT

Linear Technology’s LT3958 is a high-input-voltage dc/dc converter for boost, flyback, SEPIC, and inverting power supply applications. It operates over an input voltage range from 5 to 80 V, has an onboard 84-V/3.5-A power switch, and can achieve efficiencies up to 96%. The component can generate either a positive or a negative regulated output voltage with its two voltage feedback error amplifiers and reference voltages. One set is for positive output voltages, and the other is for negative output voltages, both off a single feedback pin. With a programmable fixed or synchronizable operating frequency from 100 kHz to 1 MHz, designers can choose a range of inductors and capacitors to optimize size, performance, and cost.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
