Lattice expands hot-swap application coverage
June 01, 2010 // Julien Happich
Lattice Semiconductor added a higher performance device to its second generation Power Manager II product family, the ispPAC-POWR1220-02 which integrates a higher voltage charge pump with programmable current to control MOSFETs in Hot-swap and Sequencing applications.
The new device is pin compatible with existing Power Manager II devices and integrates power management functions that typically require multiple ICs, including Hot-swap Controllers, Reset Generators, Voltage Supervisors, Sequencers and Trackers.
The ispPAC-POWR1220-02 also integrates ADC ICs used for power supply voltage and current measurements, and DC-DC converter trimming and margining control ICs.
Support for the new ispPAC-POWR1220-02 is included in the updated PAC-Designer version 5.3.
The PAC-Designer tool suite provides design and verification tools for Lattice mixed signal devices. It comes with a complete design environment, including everything needed for design, implementation, simulation and programming of supported devices.
In addition to the new device support, a comprehensive PAC-Designer software User Guide is now available for download.
Lattice's PAC-Designer software for Windows is available now at no charge for download from the Lattice website, http://www.latticesemi.com/pac-designer.

Internet of Things (IoT) manufacturer Ciseco has launched the Raspberry Pi ‘Wireless Inventors Kit’ (RasWIK), featuring 88 pieces to provide everything a Pi owner needs to follow a series of step-by-step projects or to create their own wireless devices, without the need for configuration or even writing code.
RasWIK has been designed to be highly accessible, demystifying the dark art of wireless and enabling anyone with basic computing skills to begin building wireless devices with a Raspberry Pi. You can create anything from a simple traffic light, to a battery monitor, or even a temperature gauge that sends data to the Xively IoT cloud so billions can access the data.This month, Ciseco is giving away twelve Raspberry Pi Wireless Inventors kits, worth £49.99 each for EETimes Europe's readers to win.
And the winners are...
In our previous reader offer, Farsens was giving away five kits for EEtimes Europe readers to evaluate its FenixVortex, Kineo and X1 wireless, battery free sensor tags.
Lucky winners include Mr A. Neil from the UK, Mr. E. Delvaux from Belgium, Mr Lengal from the Czech Republic, Mr H. Bijlsma from the Netherlands, and Mr G. Pfaff from Germany. All should be receiving their packages soon. Lets wish them some interesting findings with their projects.
