RS Components (RS) has created a new section on its DesignSpark website relating to power. A valuable resource for design engineers and students, the ‘Power Technology Hub’ includes free design tools and a wealth of product and system development information.
Sponsored by Maxim Integrated Products, the DesignSpark Power Technology Hub features application examples, reference designs and free software tools for use by design engineers working on next generation power systems for the diverse requirements across a multitude of applications.
Effective power management – and especially low-power technology – is critical for all electrical and electronic circuits: from battery-management ICs for low-power applications using Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) communications, for example, to motor-drive ICs and DC/DC converters up to complete power supplies.
“Our new power tech hub is not only an excellent learning resource for design engineers who are new to power design but is also a point of reference for seasoned designers looking to discover the latest power products and technologies,” said Mike Bray, Vice President of DesignSpark at RS.
RS also signed a distribution agreement with Maxim, to include DC-DC converters, sensors and microcontroller development kits for internet of things (IoT), industrial IoT (IIoT) applications and wearables.
