The Electronica 2010 global electronics fair in Munich served as the international stage for new product launches from ON Semiconductor, Power Integrations, AVX Corp., Emerson Network Power, and VPT Inc. on Tuesday.
ON Semiconductor announced two important new products specifically targeted at the industrial market sector. The new AMIS-30523 integrates a stepper motor driver and CAN transceiver in a single package, two-die device. The unique configuration can be used to control multiple motors of the same type on a single bus, and delivers important space savings in designs where PCB real estate is limited or where a single PCB mounted on the back of the motor is employed. Typical applications include general purpose stepper motors in automotive, industrial, medical and marine environments.
