App note: 48V buck converter helps MHEVs meet fuel emission standards

Maxim Integrated got you covered on designing all in 48V automotive compliant buck converter. Link here

Ever-tightening automotive fuel emission standards are becoming challenging. The gasoline engine needs the help of an electric motor to meet these standards, leading to the introduction of mild hybrid electric vehicles (MHEV) with higher battery voltages. 48V hybrids are in production today and are proliferating. A 48V buck converter with integrated MOSFETs in an advanced CMOS process helps meet these standards by withstanding high-voltage load-dump transients and operating with low EMI, low duty cycles, and high efficiency.

App note: Surge-proof your industrial sensor

Design solution for a robust and reliable power supply for industrial sensors from Maxim Integrated. Link here

Modern industrial sensors must operate reliably in harsh and demanding industrial environments where they are prone to large surge voltages and mechanical stresses. This places considerable demands on the DC power supply that they use. We consider the merits of different approaches to designing this DC supply, before presenting the most robust, reliable and efficient solution using a uSLIC™ power module.
