6 megapixel CMOS image sensor targets machine vision with up to 160fps Delivered in a one-inch optical format, the 6 megapixel (2832x2128) KAC-06040 image sensor from Truesense Imaging provides 10-bit full resolution output at up to 160 fps. The device includes a flexible read-out architecture that supports programmable, multiple regions of interest, enabling full speed, interspersed video streams for simultaneous monitoring of both full field of view and multiple localized zones. The KAC-06040 is available in monochrome and Bayer colour configurations, and is sampling today with production planned for Q1, 2014. Truesense www.truesenseimaging.com DC/DC boost converter has 1-μA quiescent current The AS1312 from ams is an ultra-low-IQ hysteretic step-up DC-DC converter that achieves an efficiency of up to 94% and is designed to operate from a +0.7V to +5.0V supply, with an output voltage fixed in 50 mV steps from +2.5V to 5.0V. Peak output current is 200mA; it features a shutdown mode, where it draws less than 100 nA and in which the battery is not connected to the output. If the input voltage exceeds the output voltage the device is in a feedthrough mode and the input is directly connected to the output voltage. In light load operation, the device enters a sleep mode when most of the internal operating blocks are turned off in order to save power. This mode is active approximately 50 μsec after a current pulse provided that the output is in regulation. The AS1312 also offers an adjustable low-battery detection. If the battery voltage decreases below a threshold defined by two external resistors, the LBO output is pulled to logic low: LBO functions as a power-OK indication when LBI is connected to GND. The AS1312 is available in a 8-pin (2x2mm) TDFN and a 0.4 mm pitch 8-pin WL-CSP package. ams www.ams.com Load-switch IC offers on-resistance of 18.4 milliohms This device from Toshiba is an ultra-low-voltage switch in a correspondingly small package, intended for use as power management switch ICs in smartphones, tablets, laptops and other mobile equipment. The TCK20xG load switch series claims the industry’s lowest ON resistance of 18.4 mΩ at an input voltage of only 0.75V, the minimum input voltage; output current handling is up to 2 A. The typical standby and quiescent currents in the range of 1 μA and 20 μA together with the minimum ON resistance ensure switch IC operation with minimal power consumption and loss. There are three models in the series - the TCK206G, TCK207G and TCK208G – offering different output discharge and control pin configurations. The TCK207G and TCK208G feature an integrated output discharge function, with “active high” and “active low” control pin, respectively, whereas the TCK206G omits the discharge function offering a pull down (active high) control pin. All three versions have additional integrated features such as a reverse current blocking circuit and a control circuit with inrush current limitation.
