Power trends: Size is everything
Smaller, more efficient power modules are increasingly in demand for a wide range of industrial automation applications. Nick Flaherty talks to Anil Telikepalli, executive director of business management at Maxim Integrated about the latest trends

“For 48V even now there are a lot of different ways, you see from a processor standpoint, ARM clusters, GPU, FPGA, then you look at the sensor, there are some doing it from 48V some from 24V, these need a backup battery, and beyond 24V we see lithium stacks coming up with other voltages – I would argue that nothing is running solely at lower voltages as the sensors need backup and need to be available if something catastrophic has happened – we see that play very well into this.”

He also points to Wifi and its 200mA requirement that opens up a lot of IoT applications

The first modules are just the start of a family of stacked devices. “We believe we are now at the stage of scaling it and these technologies are just initial teasers on the things that we see ahead.”
