Bus power modules are available in 12 and 24V versions with output currents from 5 to 20A. Four series are available, including the PT6620 and PT6650, which can supply output currents of 7 and 5A, respectively. The PT7720 and PT7750 can supply output currents of up to 20A. Applications include distributed power ones using 12 or 24V bus architectures. With efficiencies between 85 and 90%, all four of these products feature output inhibit function, remote sense, and over-temperature shutdown, and are available in surface-mount configurations.

A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
