Würth introduces another MagI³C power module

first_imgWürth Elektronik expands its product family of MagI³C power modules with the compact MagI³C VDRM (Variable Step Down Regulator Module) in a LGA-16EP package. The module has an input voltage range of 4 to 18 V for converting voltages from the 5 V, 9 V or 12 V bus. The very compact component (9 x 9 x 3 mm) offers scalability of currents (1A/2A/3A) and high efficiency up to 93 percent. As a fully integrated DC/DC voltage converter, MagI³C VDRM contains the power stage, the regulator, the inductor, as well as input and output capacitors. Only two resistors are necessary in the external circuit to define the output voltage.The LGA-16EP package of the MagI³C VDRM displays good thermal behavior: The rated current of up to 3 A can be drawn up to an ambient temperature of 85° C. The EMC behavior is exemplary too: The intensity of electromagnetic radiation is far below the limit stated in the EMC standard EN55022 class B. The power module is also particularly suitable for applications in industry, testing and measuring technology, medical technology and in telecoms systems. MagI³C-VDRM is now available from stock. Free samples can be requested.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components Continue Reading Previous Swissbit: USB 3.1 sticks for industrial use and secureNext Maplesoft: MapleSim 2018 offers new tools for developing digital twinslast_img read more

Ohio State announces plan to build new indoor tennis complex

The Ty Tucker Tennis Center, set to be completed in December 2020, will be in the Athletic District, adjacent to the current outdoor tennis facilities. Credit: The Ohio State UniversityThe Ohio State tennis team will soon receive a home-court advantage after the Board of Trustees announced a plan for a $21.9 million project to build a new indoor tennis complex.The Board released a report on project funding and scheduling for the new tennis complex on Sept. 6. Construction is set to begin in September 2019 and will be completed by December 2021, the report said.  The tennis center will be funded by development funds and university debt. The project, set to be built in the Athletic District on north campus, includes a 75,000-square-foot facility, with six indoor courts and seating for 450 spectators. Both men’s and women’s teams will receive locker rooms and training facilities. “With the facility in the middle of the Athletic District, it will provide the men’s and women’s tennis programs with a state-of-the-art practice and competition venue, offices and other spaces that will enhance the student-athlete experience,” a press release by the Department of Athletics said. The facility will be named the Ty Tucker Tennis Center, after the current men’s head coach and director of tennis. Tucker is currently the winningest tennis coach in the Big Ten. “I’d like to thank the individuals who have a deep appreciation for the Scarlet and Gray for giving to and supporting this project,” Tucker said in a statement. “They have touched the lives of generations of Buckeyes and their impact is immeasurable.” With both teams making national appearances in the past two years and  the men’s team ending as runners-up in outdoors last season, the overall goal of the indoor center is to attract future recruits, something about which senior tennis player Andrea Ballinger said she is excited. “I am grateful for the investment Ohio State is putting into the future of Buckeye tennis,” Ballinger said. Tucker said he wanted a facility to match the success of the Ohio State tennis programs. “This facility is going to be one of the best tennis facilities in the country,” Tucker said. “With it located in the Athletic District, it will provide the best student-athlete experience for countless Buckeyes in the years to come.” Redshirt junior Danielle Wolf said not only is the facility a good opportunity to recruit potential players, but that it could not be named after a more fitting person than Tucker. read more
