Mouser Electronics is now stocking the Texas Instruments TUSB320 family of USB Type-C configuration channel logic and port controllers from Texas Instruments (TI). The TUSB320 family of devices provide USB Type-C configuration channel (CC) logic and port control, making it possible for a system to detect the orientation of the plug, and determine the appropriate USB specification and mode settings for the end equipment.
The TI TUSB320 devices, available from Mouser Electronics, can be configured as a downstream-facing port (DFP), upstream-facing port (UFP), or a dual-role port (DRP). The family of products supports USB 2.0 and USB 3.1, giving designers the flexibility to use these devices in multiple USB-enabled designs. The TUSB320 family also contains several features (such as mode configuration and low standby current), which make this device applicable for source or sinks in USB 2.0 applications. The device operates over a wide supply range (2.7Vbus – 5.5Vbus) and offers low power consumption; its low shutdown power of 8 mW benefits a variety of battery-powered applications.
The TUSB320 family of devices offers I2C or GPIO control, an industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees Celsius, and support for up to 3A advertisement and detection. The devices can be used for host, device, and dual-role port applications in mobile phones, tablets, and USB peripherals.
The TUSB320EVM, also available from Mouser Electronics, provides an evaluation platform for the TUSB320 device. This plug-and-play module is configurable via onboard DIP switches for DFP, UFP, or DRP implementations, operating in I2C or GPIO mode.
Mouser Electronics recently launched a new Motor Control Applications site for motor control engineers and anyone interested in control applications. The site features motor control resources and offers components available from Mouser Electronics for building motor control systems.
The site’s Applications section segments motor control into five main subsections: Permanent Magnet Synchronous motors, Brushless DC motors, Stepper motors,AC Induction motors, and Low Voltage DC motors. These subsections describe each motor’s use and operation. You can view functional block diagrams explanations of each block, as well as a parts list of products available for same-day shipping.
The Articles section covers topics such as Introduction to Rotary Resolvers & Encoders and Passive Components for Advanced Motor Control.
The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser.com that speed and enhance the construction of motor control systems. Products include the Vishay Widebody VOW3120 2.5A IGBT and MOSFET Driver, Molex Sealed Industrial USB Solutions, and the Fairchild FAN9673 CCM PFC Controller. Additional products for motor control systems include products for EMI suppression, circuit protection, passives, sensors, and motor control development kits.
The Resources section features videos, application notes, and white papers that cover topics such as device selection and system considerations when designing motor control systems. Systems discussed include selecting motor drivers, implementing control feedback loops, Power Factor Correction (PFC) techniques, and designing for thermal management.
