Rechargeable Battery Packs Benefit From Integrated Battery Pack Monitor

Increasingly, electronic devices are depending on more than one battery unit for deriving power—driving motors require a higher voltage than does the control system. This includes energy storage systems, toys, scooters, e-bikes, handheld power tools, lawn equipment, and vacuum cleaners. So far, battery monitors could only monitor the entire battery pack and not the individual batteries making up the pack. Now, Intersil has developed a battery pack monitor with a difference. Not only can it monitor Read more [...]

Helping Encapsulated Modules Keep Their Cool

When you encapsulate an active module, you actually cut off air from circulating and removing heat from around the components by the normal process of convection. That forces heat build-up within the active components, including some passive components as well, leading to possible premature failures. Intersil has now mastered the technology of effectively removing heat away from fully-encapsulated modules. Using their unique thermal design, Intersil is able to design very compact encapsulated modules Read more [...]
