WinSystems announced their PPM-PS397-POE-1 Power over Ethernet Powered Device (PoE-PD) DC/DC supply for a PC/104-Plus compatible computer board stack. The PS397 is available in two other standard configurations with custom engineered solutions also available for OEM applications. The PCM-PS397-POE-1 is a PC/104 module and the ISM-PS397-POE-1 is an Industry Standard Module (ISM) without the PC/104 and PC/104-Plus connectors populated for use with small embedded systems. The WinSystems PPM-PS397-POE-1 is priced at $199.
Microchip Technology introduced the Quarter Brick DC/DC Converter Reference Design and DC/DC LLC Converter Reference Design. The reference designs feature intelligent control of the power converter and serial system communication, remote control and monitoring, and full fault protection. The reference designs are implemented using Microchip’s dsPIC33F GS digital-power Digital Signal Controllers (DSCs), which provide fully digital control of the power-conversion and system-management functions. The DC/DC Reference Designs (software, Gerber files, MATLAB models, Webinars and application notes) can be downloaded for free.
The Microchip dsPIC33F GS 16-bit dsPIC digital signal controllers (DSC) can be configured for a variety of topologies. The eight new DSCs offer up to 18 channels of Pulse-Width-Modulators (PWMs) with 1 nanosecond resolution, enabling a number of completely independent digital control loops. The dsPIC33F GS DSCs start at $2.93 each in 10,000-unit quantities. The dsPIC33FJ32GS406, dsPIC33FJ64GS406, dsPIC33FJ32GS606 and dsPIC33FJ64GS606 are available in 64-pin TQFP and 9×9 mm QFN packages. The dsPIC33FJ32GS608 and dsPIC33FJ64GS608 are available in an 80-pin TQFP package. The dsPIC33FJ32GS610 and dsPIC33FJ64GS610 are available in a 100-pin TQFP package.
