Future Electronics Offers the SCTx0N120 Series MOSFETs from STMicroelectronics

Montreal, Canada – March 31, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently announced immediate availability of STMicroelectronics’ SIC MOSFETs SCTx0N120 Series.

Silicon Carbide is the most mature wide-bandgap semiconductor material currently available in the market. STMicroelectronics is among the first manufacturers to have introduced high-voltage silicon carbide (SiC) Power MOSFETs, and the first one achieving the industry’s highest temperature rating of 200°C in a molded package.

SiC is widely regarded as instrumental in order to build on the path of continuous improvement in the critical areas of system energy efficiency, miniaturization and cost.

Target applications include solar inverters, high-frequency power supplies, power factor correctors (PFCs) as well as fully electric and hybrid electric vehicles (EV and HEV).

These SiC Power MOSFETs are the next step vs traditional silicon metal–oxide–semiconductor field-effect transistors (MOSFETs) and insulated-gate bipolar transistors (IGBTs), for all applications in power conversion running at a frequency ≥ 100 kHz. Additionally, the fully-guaranteed 200C TJ(max) opens new frontiers in terms of thermal management, reliability and robustness.

Future Electronics currently has STMicroelectronics’ SiC MOSFETs SCT30N120 (1,200V, 100mΩ) and SCT20N120 (1,200V, 290 mΩ) in stock, with immediate shipping availability.

Future Electronics Promotes the PCA9955A 16-Channel Constant Current LED Driver from NXP

Montreal, Canada – March 27, 2015 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes NXP’s PCA9955A I2C-bus controlled 16-channel constant current LED driver.

The PCA9955A is an I2C-bus controlled 16-channel constant current LED driver optimized for dimming and blinking 57 mA Red/Green/Blue/Amber (RGBA) LEDs in amusement products. Each LED output has its own 8-bit resolution (256 steps) fixed frequency individual PWM controller that operates at 31.25 kHz with a duty cycle that is adjustable from 0 % to 100 % to allow the LED to be set to a specific brightness value. An additional 8-bit resolution (256 steps) group PWM controller has both a fixed frequency of 122 Hz and an adjustable frequency between 15 Hz to once every 16.8 seconds with a duty cycle that is adjustable from 0 % to 99.6 % that is used to either dim or blink all LEDs with the same value.

Each LED output can be off, on (no PWM control), set at its individual PWM controller value or at both individual and group PWM controller values. The PCA9955A operates with a supply voltage range of 3 V to 5.5 V and the constant current sink LED outputs allow up to 20 V for the LED supply.

This device has built-in open, short load and over-temperature detection circuitry. The error information from the corresponding register can be read via the I2C-bus. Additionally, a thermal shutdown feature protects the device when internal junction temperature exceeds the limit allowed for the process.
