TAMPA, Fla., March 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) is unveiling several innovative system reference designs at the Applied Power Electronics Conference (APEC) that include the company's most advanced analog and embedded processing technologies. Supporting a range of system requirements from high voltage to ultra-low power, TI Designs reference designs give engineers the "Power to Innovate" with breakthrough technology for industrial systems.
Demonstrated at TI's booth #701 and online now, the new reference designs include:
-- GaN-based power system designs -- from AC to processorThe industry's
first end-to-end high-frequency gallium nitride (GaN) power solution
efficiently manages power from AC to point-of-load in space-constrained
industrial, telecom and networking applications. Achieving a 3x power
density as compared to existing solutions, TI shows off four separate
reference designs based on its LMG5200 80-V, 10-A integrated GaN FET
power stage and LMG3410 high-voltage GaN power stage solutions. For more
information, read the blog, "Rethink compute density with GaN."
-- 480-W bi-directional power conversion for energy storageThe new
Ultra-Compact, Bi-Directional DC/DC Converter reference design is
capable of delivering 480W/in3 with 97 percent efficiency in local
energy storage (LES) and lithium battery back-up power applications,
specifically for server power supply units. The (1 inch by 1 inch by 1
inch) reference design is based on a two-phase interleaved half-bridge
power stage controlled by TI's UCD3138A digital power controller.
-- Smart thermostat 24-V AC power stageAn Ultra-Low Iq, 24-V AC Power Stage
reference design takes advantage of a wide input range voltage converter
and battery fuel gauge to optimize smart thermostat, video doorbells and
gateway systems used in building. The design features TI's new LM5166
synchronous buck converter with a maximum input voltage of 65 V to help
HVAC systems withstand transients, and a low quiescent current of less
than 10 uA to maximize light-load efficiency.
-- PoE for industrial LED lighting for smart buildingsExtending its
expertise in Power over Ethernet (PoE) applications, TI introduced an
IEEE 802.3bt-compliant, PoE-enabled LED lighting ballast demonstration
with power and data path features. The reference design helps engineers
intelligently manage LED ballasts over Ethernet to light industrial
automation designs, and maintain low power consumption during standby.
EV Charging, USB-Type C and more
In addition to the GaN-based and smart power designs, TI is demonstrating reference designs focused on faster and cooler electric vehicle charging, USB-Type C applications and isolation technology based on the new ISOW7841 for protection relay and smart grid applications.
