SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/28/14 -- Micrel, Inc. (NASDAQ: MCRL), an industry leader in high performance linear and power solutions, LAN and timing and communications solutions, today introduced the MIC23099 power management solution. The device is targeted at single AA/AAA battery cell applications. Operating from a minimum battery voltage as low as 0.85V, the MIC23099 integrates two switching regulators with an intelligent battery monitoring system that provides the necessary power, monitoring and control for today's most demanding portable applications. This highly integrated, smart power solution offers high switching frequency converters to keep passive components to a minimum count and size, thereby allowing a total footprint of less than 100mm squared. The switching frequency is reduced during light load conditions and is limited to a minimum of 80kHz for the step-down regulator and 100kHz for the step-up regulator. This improves noise immunity in the audio band. In addition, an anti-ringing control switch improves EMI performance at the switch node and high power supply rejection (40dB at 20kHz) for the converters make the MIC23099 ideal for applications such as voice recorders, video game controllers, portable medical devices as well as fuel cell and solar cell applications. The MIC23099 is available in volume quantities with 1,000 quantity pricing starting at $1.75. Samples can be ordered at: http://www.samplecomponents.com/scripts/samplecenter.dll?micrel.
"The MIC23099 provides a high performance, highly integrated power management solution that solves the technical challenges in noise sensitive and space-constrained portable applications," noted Brian Hedayati, vice president of marketing for high performance linear and power solutions at Micrel. "The device reduces overall solution size by over 40 percent and the built-in intelligent power monitoring further reduces system design complexity."
The MIC23099 combines a 1MHz step-up converter capable of delivering 400mW of output power with a step-down converter that provides up to 30mA of output current. Internal sequencing and monitoring control ensures that each regulator starts up in an orderly manner to provide inrush current limiting. Once powered, the regulators and battery are continuously monitored and supervised to ensure proper operation. Other features include an output disconnect switch during shutdown and a low battery monitoring function with LED indicator. The solution also offers power good output, short circuit, and thermal protection. The device is fully specified from -40 to 125-degC and is offered in a tiny 2.5mm x 2.5mm TQFN package.

WebRTC adoption has generated a wave of creative uses of communications and collaboration through websites, sales apps, customer care and business applications. As WebRTC has become more mainstream it has evolved to use cases beyond the original peer-to-peer case, which has led to a repeating requirement for interoperability with existing infrastructures. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Graham Holt, Executive Vice President of Daitan Group, will cover implementation examples that have enabled ea...

The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, will compare the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, e...

Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...
