Technology Corp.'s H-grade version of the LTC3872 has a small footprint 550kHz fixed frequency step-up dc/dc controller
that is specified over a -40
to150C junction temperature range. The LTC3872 accepts a 2.5 to 9.8V input
voltage range and can produce an output voltage as
high as 60V without needing a sense resistor. Capable of driving large
N-channel MOSFETs, the LTC3872 can produce high peak output currents. When
powered with a 5V bias voltage, the switch can go
up to 60V, making it well suited
for automotive, heavy equipment and industrial control applications.
current-mode architecture provides cycle-by-cycle current limiting and
transient response. Pulse skipping operation at light loads reduces the
quiescent current to 250uA which helps extend the run-time in the battery-powered
applications during standby mode. Additional features include an internal
soft start, adjustable current limit, precision undervoltage lockout and tight
±1.6 percent reference voltage accuracy over the full -40 to 150C operating
temperature range. The LTC3872H is offered in a
thermally enhanced 2mm x 3mm DFN-8 package and 8-lead ThinSOTTM package. 1,000-piece
pricing starts at $2.35 each.

A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
