ACTIVE-SEMI INTERNATIONAL Inc., and INELTEK GmbH announced at Embedded World 2014 a new agreement for distribution of ACTIVE-SEMI‘s power management IC and digital motor drive IC portfolio. The pact covers the EMEA along with markets in Germany, UK/Ireland, Italy, Russia and Austria.
The diverse European market requires highly competitive power management solutions with high performance and flexibility. ACTIVE-SEMI offers analog and mixed signal SoC scalable core platforms used in charging, powering and embedded digital control systems for end applications such as industrial, commercial and consumer equipment. The portfolio includes Power Application Controllers™, PMU, DC/DC, AC/DC, and LED drivers that significantly reduce solution size and cost while improving system-level reliability.
At Embedded World 2014, ACTIVE-SEMI is showcasing live demonstrations at the INELTEK booth (Hall 1, Booth 420), including:
- Advanced Motor Control Platforms (BEMF sensorless, sensored, FOC) with Power Application Controllers
- Atmel SAMA5 XPLAINED evaluation kit PMICs (power management ICs), ACT8865 and ACT8945A, also shown in Atmel booth at Hall 4A-220
- Qi-Certified, Wireless Power Charger Solution with PAC5220WP IC
- PowerBank and Secondary Battery Charging SoC Solutions with ACT28xx
“We are happy adding ACTIVE-SEMI as a reliable partner to introduce our customers to a broad range of integrated power management products. Their Power Application Controller uniquely integrates into one complete system-on-a-chip what is traditionally served by an MCU plus several discrete analog components,” said Bernhard Sonnentag, CEO at INELTEK. “ACTIVE-SEMI‘s solutions will help us offer faster design time, decrease PCB area, and increase reliability while also reducing cost.“
“We are pleased to partner with INELTEK, who is a recognized specialized design-in distributor of electronic components,” said Mark Cieri, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at ACTIVE-SEMI. Cieri continues, “INELTEK offers a high-level of localized customer focus and technical support necessary to accelerate our European growth.“

DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO’s chair will come from the IT leaders that successfully ma...

We are always online. We access our data, our finances, work, and various services on the Internet. But we live in a congested world of information in which the roads were built two decades ago. The quest for better, faster Internet routing has been around for a decade, but nobody solved this problem. We’ve seen band aid approaches like CDNs that attack a niche's slice of static content part of the Internet, but that’s it. It does not address the dynamic services-based Internet of today. It doe...

The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

The Internet of Things (IoT), in all its myriad manifestations, has great potential. Much of that potential comes from the evolving data management and analytic (DMA) technologies and processes that allow us to gain insight from all of the IoT data that can be generated and gathered. This potential may never be met as those data sets are tied to specific industry verticals and single markets, with no clear way to use IoT data and sensor analytics to fulfill the hype being given the IoT today.

Fact: storage performance problems have only gotten more complicated, as applications not only have become largely virtualized, but also have moved to cloud-based infrastructures. Storage performance in virtualized environments isn’t just about IOPS anymore. Instead, you need to guarantee performance for individual VMs, helping applications maintain performance as the number of VMs continues to go up in real time. In his session at Cloud Expo, Dhiraj Sehgal, Product and Marketing at Tintri, wil...

Enterprises have been using both Big Data and virtualization for years. Until recently, however, most enterprises have not combined the two. Big Data's demands for higher levels of performance, the ability to control quality-of-service (QoS), and the ability to adhere to SLAs have kept it on bare metal, apart from the modern data center cloud. With recent technology innovations, we've seen the advantages of bare metal erode to such a degree that the enhanced flexibility and reduced costs that cl...

As software becomes more and more complex, we, as software developers, have been splitting up our code into smaller and smaller components. This is also true for the environment in which we run our code: going from bare metal, to VMs to the modern-day Cloud Native world of containers, schedulers and microservices. While we have figured out how to run containerized applications in the cloud using schedulers, we've yet to come up with a good solution to bridge the gap between getting your conta...
