WWP Series Pulse Withstanding Wirewound Resistor

RALEIGH, NC (Jan. 5, 2018) – Stackpole’s WWP series of wirewounds offers guaranteed pulse handling for high energy handling requirements. Standard wirewounds exhibit variable pulse handling due to materials flexibility and trimming processes. The WWP series defines the element wire as robust as possible and does not require trimming. The result is a thru hole wirewound series with outstanding pulse handling that is very reliable and consistent and more repeatable than pulse handling film resistors.

STMicroelectronics’ New Motor Driver with Embedded 32-Bit MCU Simplifies Motion Control for Battery-Operated Robots and Appliances

Geneva, October 17, 2017 -- STMicroelectronics’ STSPIN32F0A programmable motor controller contains fully integrated gate drivers for three external MOSFET half-bridges, an STM32F0 microcontroller (MCU), as well as a 3.3V DC/DC switching converter plus a 12V LDO, giving designers flexible motor-control options in a lightweight and compact 7mm x 7mm outline. The 48MHz microcontroller, with 32Kbyte on-chip Flash, can run motor control algorithms such as 6-step sensorless, field-oriented control or position-sensed control, as well as the user application.
