Advanced Power Solutions from Microchip Featured in FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring Microchip’s advanced power solutions in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – January 04, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring advanced power solutions from Microchip in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

Microchip’s MCP1792 and MCP1793 are high-voltage, Low Dropout (LDO) regulators which supply a maximum output current of 100mA from a wide input-voltage range of 4.5V-55V. This capability makes the LDOs ideal for use in 12V, 24V or 48V power rails, and in high-voltage battery packs.

Microchip’s new UPD301A is a stand-alone USB Type-C Power Delivery controller which greatly simplifies the implementation of basic USB Type-C PD charging functionality. It supports both single- and dual-port operation.

Microchip’s USB705x family is a set of USB 3.1 SmartHub devices with integrated support for Power Delivery. They include two unique features which simplify USB Type-C PD implementations: HostFlexing and PDBalancing.

HostFlexing simplifies the experience of using a docking station, making all USB Type-C ports function as the ‘notebook’ port. PDBalancing provides a means for manufacturers to manage system power centrally, saving consumers money by enabling them to charge multiple USB PD devices with less power overall.

Future Technology Magazine is the flagship publication of Future Electronics, and is geared toward engineers and buyers looking to keep up with the latest developments in the industry. FTM comes out eight times per year, and each issue is packed with new product information, application notes, and detailed technical views from Future’s Advanced Engineers and other industry experts.
