STMicroelectronics – 800V MOSFET series offers low on-resistance in switching power-conversion applications


The STx7N80K5 from STMicroelectronics is a series of 800V N-channel power MOSFETs which enable designers to implement highly efficient converter circuits in switching power supplies. This high-voltage MOSFET series takes advantage of ST’s MDmeshTM K5 process technology, which is based on an innovative proprietary vertical structure. This fabrication technology produces devices which are characterised by […]

STMicroelectronics – Low-power 868MHz transceiver provides robust air interface in Sigfox networks


STMicroelectronics’ S2-LP, a low- power RF transceiver operating at frequencies below 1GHz, enables designers to implement wireless equipment designs intended for use in Sigfox networks. The S2-LP also supports the Wireless M-Bus protocol and includes an embedded packet handler to implement proprietary wireless protocols. The S2-LP is suitable for use in the licence-free ISM and […]

STMicroelectronics – New IR laser sensor performs ranging measurements over distances up to 4m


STMicroelectronics has introduced the VL53L1X, a state-of-the-art, Time- of-Flight (ToF) laser-ranging sensor module which provides accurate ranging measurements at distances up to 4m. Part of the ST FlightSenseTM product family, the VL53L1X is the fastest miniature ToF sensor on the market, operating at sampling frequencies up to 50Hz. Housed in a miniature LGA package measuring […]
