Future Electronics Offers CUI Inc’s Wall Power Adapter Series Meeting New Efficiency Standards

Montreal, Canada – February 27, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate availability of CUI Inc’s new wall power adapter series which meets Level VI efficiency standards.

CUI Inc recently expanded its 12 W and 24 W US wall power adapter series to meet the new Level VI efficiency standards. The SWI12-SC and SWI24-SC series meet the more stringent average efficiency and no load input power requirements set to go into effect in February 2016. The US Department of Energy (DOE) Level VI standards aim to significantly lower the amount of power consumed when the end application is not in use or is no longer connected.

The SWI12-SC and SWI24-SC series also feature screw terminal connections for designs that require flexibility beyond the standard 5 foot dc cord, including security, home automation and smart applications. The adapters accommodate a wide universal input voltage range of 90~264 Vac, are available in 12, 15, and 24 Vdc output options, and feature no-load power consumption less than 0.1 W. The single-output adapters cover both UL 60950 & UL 1310 safety approvals and meet the radiated and conducted emission requirements for FCC Part 15B Class B. Additional features include short circuit, over current, and over voltage protections.

Future Electronics Offers CUI’s Design Considerations for Thermal Management of Power Supplies

Montreal, Canada – February 24, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is offering design considerations from CUI for the thermal management of power supplies.

System designers have a number of options available when considering the thermal management of the power supply and the surrounding system. While effective, forced-air cooling is not always the ideal choice for system designers. By trading off power supply capacity against load, by selecting higher-efficiency designs or by moving to advanced products that employ conduction cooling, it is possible to achieve high performance with little to no acoustic noise through the use of non-forced air cooling. Alternatively, fans can be selected that minimize noise emissions and which provide thermal compatibility over a wide ambient temperature range.

Future Electronics Offers Intersil’s ISL8203M Dual 3A/Single 6A Step Down DC/DC Power Modules

Montreal, Canada – February 20, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced availability of ISL8203M dual 3A/single 6A step down DC/DC power modules from Intersil.

The ISL8203M is an integrated step down power module rated for dual 3A output current or 6A current sharing operation. Optimized for generating low output voltages down to 0.8V, the ISL8203M is ideal for any low power low voltage applications.

The supply voltage range is from 2.85V to 6V. The two channels are 180° out-of-phase for input RMS current and EMI reduction. Each channel is capable of 3A output current. They can be combined to form a single 6A output in current sharing mode. While in current sharing mode, the interleaving of the two channels reduces input and output voltage ripple.

Features include a dual 3A and single 6A switching power supply, 2.85V to 6V input voltage range, 1.5ms internal digital soft-start, peak current limiting and hiccup mode short circuit protection, overcurrent protection, and up to 95% efficiency, in a 9.0 x 6.5 x 1.83mm QFN package.
