?Circuit Breakers?

An Electronicstalk guide

Start with the news release Self-protected MOSFETs for automotive applications from Diodes Incorporated, which we summarised at the time by saying "Suiting automotive and industrial applications, Diodes Incorporated's new self-protected MOSFETs are suitable for switching inductive loads, such as motors, relays and lamps at low frequencies. ". Several months prior to that, we featured the news release AC/DC power converters for medical applications from Bear Power Supplies: "Bear's compact and rugged BP Series encapsulated AC/DC power converters are available for purchase online, simplifying OEM evaluation for commercial, industrial and medical applications. ".

In December 2010, we covered the news from Aimtec - take a look at 1W power supplies offer efficiency of 89 per cent which says: "Aimtec has broadened its product line with the addition of the AM1D-RZ series of 1W power supplies, featuring 80 models with efficiency rates up to 89 per cent and load regulation of six per cent.".

Take a look also at the news release from Aimtec, Aimtec power supplies offer auto-recovery restart, as well as Voltage controller with integrated power MOSFET from Linear Technology, and Rugged flame-retardent laminates for military PCBs from Rogers.
