Intersil Corporation has announced the ISL8225M, a 30A fully encapsulated power module. The ISL8225M can deliver up to 100W-output power from a small 17-mm-square PCB footprint. The two 15A outputs can be used independently or combined to deliver a single 30A output. Current sharing and phase interleaving allow up to six modules to be put in parallel for 180A-output capability. Excellent efficiency and low thermal resistance permit full-power operation without heat sinks or fans.

Luvata has announced Mileon, the longest seamless hollow conductor available on the market. Unlike traditional hollow conductors, Mileon gives manufacturers the option for large continuous coils or the flexibility to specify the optimum length, reducing the required amount of scrap and packaging materials. Mileon hollow conductors are completely jointless and are produced in continuous lengths of hundreds or thousands of metres. Made from high-purity oxygen-free copper, Mileon delivers electrical conductivity of 101–102% IACS and thermal conductivity of 390 W/km.

Narda Safety Test Solutions presents two new meters for equipment that operates using industrial frequencies. The NIM-511 and NIM-513 are complete hand-held measuring systems that make standards-compliant measurements of electric and magnetic field strength and demonstrate adherence to human safety regulations. The NIM-511 covers the range 300 kHz to 100 MHz, while the NIM-513’s sensors cover the range 10 MHz to 42 MHz and are balanced during calibration at the 27.12 MHz frequency used for heat-welding equipment and induction ovens.

Pfeiffer Vacuum has introduced energy-saving dry pumps A100 L, with a compact design specially developed for flexible integration in semiconductor production facilities. These dry multistage Roots pumps are ideal for clean applications and the fully integrated ES module reduces energy use to a minimum in the low-pressure range, significantly reducing operating costs. Annual savings per pump total up to 7900 kWh. In addition, the final pressure of the A100 L ES is reduced to 7 × 10–4 mbar (hPa), which opens up new potential applications.
