Realizes high efficiency: supports light loads, saves space

TOKYO - Wednesday, April 24th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Toshiba Corporation (TOKYO: 6502) today announced that it has launched a sub-power management IC embedded with a DCDC step-down convertor and LDO (Low Drop Out) for use in mobile products such as cellular phones and smartphones that realizes high efficiency at a light load.

The new product "TC7732FTG", increases the coil drive frequency from the widely used 2MHz to 4MHz, making it possible to use a smaller packaged 1.0μH coil that takes up less space.

Output voltage can also be set by the I2C bus, securing a reduction of circuits using resistor ICs. External IC parts can be reduced by integrating other peripheral MOSFET and capacitors into the new product. These modifications cut the mounting area on the circuit board by 35% against single-function devices (potential reduction associated with general application products; Toshiba da ... Read more »

Chosen for innovative design of non-contact dispense valve

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I. - Wednesday, April 24th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Nordson EFD, a Nordson company (NASDAQ: NDSN), has recently been honored with both the Golden Mousetrap Award and the Service Excellence Award (SEA). The Golden Mousetrap Award was presented for Nordson EFD’s Square WaveTM 745NC high speed, non-contact dispense valve for the photovoltaic (PV) industry, while the SEA recognized Nordson EFD for excellence in the crucial area of customer service.

The Square Wave 745NC was developed to apply controlled amounts of liquid flux to the narrow solder-coated metal ribbon that is used to connect adjoining PV wafers. Its accurate, controlled flux application prevents flux residue from collecting on light-absorbing cell surfaces, reducing their power-generating capability.

"This year marks 50 years of EFD commitment to developing innovative technologies that help our global custome ... Read more »
