Future Electronics Offers the ZXBM5210 Series of Reversible DC Motor Drivers from Diodes Inc.

Montreal, Canada – May 23, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, offers availability of the ZXBM5210 Series of reversible DC motor drivers from Diodes Inc.

The ZXBM5210 reversible DC motor driver from Diodes Inc. is a highly integrated high performance single chip solution for reversible brushed direct current (DC) motors and actuators. The driver’s integrated high performance H-bridge output stage can deliver currents as high as 700mA continuous, 1.2A peak and has been designed to meet stringent low noise requirements by minimizing both audible switching noise and electromagnetic interference. For system flexibility the device has four modes of operation: forward, reverse, brake and stand-by modes. The operating mode and direction of rotation can be selected by the FWD and REV pins.

The ZXBM5210 Series supports single coil reversible DC motor applications, offers four modes of operations: forward, reverse, brake and stand-by, and has internal overcurrent protection as well as over-temperature protection. Additional features of the ZXBM5210 Series include 6kV ESD withstand capability; 3V to 18V operating voltage; 0.85mA/32µA normal/stand-by operation current; under-voltage lockout and over-voltage protection; -40ºC to +85ºC/105ºC operating temperature; and standard SO-8 and thermally enhanced SO-8EP.

Future Electronics Promotes the AH1902 and AH1903 Series of Micropower Hall Switches from Diodes, Raising Detection Circuit Performance

Montreal, Canada – March 25, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes the AH1902 and AH1903 series of micropower Hall switches from Diodes, raising detection circuit performance.

Diodes has extended its family of Hall effect switches with the introduction of a pair of high sensitivity, micropower devices. Bringing greater design flexibility and savings in both power and space, the AH1902 and AH1903 help raise the performance bar of a wide range of contact-less switch applications in consumer, domestic, office and industrial products.

The AH1902 is an omnipolar device, detecting both north and south pole magnets. In default mode, the programmable AH1903 operates as a unipolar device, detecting a south pole at the part marked package surface. The device also offers an omnipolar mode, enabling it to meet the needs of multiple applications and to be changed ‘on the fly’ in the event of a field direction issue. The AH1903 function is changed via a simple select pin, driven by an external logic source or microcontroller.

The high sensitivity of both switches means weaker magnets can be employed or detection distances extended; the switches’ typical operating threshold switch point being ±35G.

Designed to be used with a low voltage supply, these latest Hall switches from Diodes will operate over the range 1.6V to 3.6V. This factor, coupled with an integral sleep function and a typical current consumption figure of 4.3µA, make them good performers in battery-powered applications.

To aid product miniaturization, the switches are provided in a choice of space saving low profile surface mount packages. The omnipolar AH1902 comes in the DFN1216-4, ultra thin DFN2015-6 and SOT553 packages. And in the 1.2 x 1.6 x 0.5mm DFN1216-4 package, the AH1903 is the industry’s smallest omnipolar/unipolar programmable Hall switch.

To accommodate a wide range of handheld applications, these high reliability switches have an 8kV electrostatic discharge withstand capability and offer good immunity to RF noise and other circuit stresses. Operating and release points are also highly stable over the temperature range -40ºC to +85ºC, and with a very low temperature coefficient, the switches are immune to early or late switching.
