RECOM develops SMD Switching Regulators as Power Trends Substitute

TI announcement to discontinue the production of their Power Trends switching regulators (PT78ST100, 78SR100, etc.) at the end of 2013, and while many of RECOM's switching regulators are drop-in replacements for the through-hole packages, there were no drop-in replacements for the SMD packages. In order to fill this gap, RECOM decided to introduce the R-78T series: a newly developed, 1:1 compatible SMD product line. This can help avoid costly re-designs for customers who are still using Power Trends switching regulators.[more]

New Switching Regulator Goes Wired

The latest product from RECOM supplements the immensely popular R-78 switching regulator family: introducing the new R-78W. This wired version of the R-78 is mainly intended for use in applications which utilize few or no printed circuit boards. For example in LED lighting solutions, a constant voltage for a fan can be generated by connecting the switching regulator in parallel with the LED driver. Additionally, in prototyping and in many areas of electrical engineering, wired regulators are extremely advantageous. [more]
