Silicon Labs Launches New Si8920

Silicon Labs introduced an isolated current sense amplifier delivering robust isolation and the high bandwidth and lowest signal delay. Silicon Labs’ new Si8920 isolated amplifier provides an ideal current shunt measurement solution for power control systems operating in harsh environments such as industrial motor drives, solar inverters, high-voltage power converters, uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and electric/hybrid-electric vehicle (EV/HEV) systems. Fast, accurate current sensing is essential for all high-power systems and power converters with high-voltage stages. Measuring current on high-voltage rails (up to 1,200 V) with a galvanically isolated amplifier provides critical information to the low-voltage controller that improves system response time and efficiency. The Si8920 isolated amplifier provides a differential, low-voltage input scaled for connection to current shunt resistors, enabling the controller to make precise measurements of current on high-voltage rails while maintaining best-in-class electrical isolation. The Si8920 device’s signal bandwidth (up to 750 kHz) ensures rapid, precise dc current measurement and accurate representation of the primary signal and harmonics. The Si8920 isolated amplifier uses Silicon Labs’ proven, CMOS-based isolation technology, which meets stringent UL, VDE, CQC and CSA standards, supports up to 5 kV withstand and 1200 V working voltage, and offers a wider operating temperature range, better noise immunity and longer lifetimes than competing isolation technologies. The Si8920 amplifier’s exceptionally low 1 µV/°C offset drift ensures stable performance over diverse operating conditions. The Si8920 provides a robust, reliable isolated amplifier solution that meets the product longevity requirements of industrial automation, green energy and Internet infrastructure equipment. Many power systems feature long lifetime warranties and are expected to operate for 25 years or more in the field. Isolation often can be a point of first failure and a lifetime-limiting device in many power systems. Traditional isolators, based on optocoupler technology, suffer from limited temperature range and can degrade with the external environment. In contrast, CMOS-based isolation components such as the Si8920 isolated amplifier operate over a full industrial temperature range and can support product lifetimes of up to 100 years. The Si8920 isolated amplifier provides very fast response time with an unparalleled 0.75 µs signal delay across the isolation barrier, allowing power control systems to react rapidly to transient load conditions. Ultra-low signal delay enables control loops to respond quickly, resulting in a more efficient and stable system as the controller can take action sooner to maintain the desired performance. Low signal delay also enables the power system to make quick corrective responses to unusual, potentially dangerous events, which helps reduce equipment repair and maintenance costs. The Si8920 isolated amplifier is available now in standard SOIC and DIP packages, which are easy to handle with automated assembly systems. Si8920 pricing in 10,000-unit quantities begins at $2.39 (USD). The Si8920ISO-KIT evaluation kit enables developers to connect quickly to a shunt resistor to evaluate Si8920 analog isolation functionality including low-voltage differential input, response times, offset and gain characteristics. Priced at $29 (USD MSRP), the Si8920ISO-KIT evaluation kit is available now from Silicon Labs and authorized distributors.

Silicon Labs Introduces Bluetooth Smart Module Solution

Silicon Laboratories Inc. has introduced a fully integrated, pre-certified Bluetooth Smart module solution. The new BGM111 module is the first in a family of advanced Blue Gecko modules from Silicon Labs delivering best-in-class integration, flexibility, energy efficiency and toolchain support with an easy migration path to Blue Gecko system-on-chip (SoC) solutions. The BGM111 Blue Gecko module simplifies Bluetooth Smart design and accelerates time to market for a wide array of applications including smart phone accessories, beacons, connected home devices, health and fitness trackers, personal medical devices, automotive diagnostics, industrial sensors and point of sale terminals. Based on Silicon Labs' Blue Gecko wireless SoCs, the BGM111 modules help developers reduce development costs and regulatory compliance effort by providing a plug-and-play Bluetooth Smart design pre-certified for use in key markets including North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific. The BGM111 modules are pre-loaded with the Bluegiga Bluetooth 4.1-compliant software stack and profiles and are field-upgradable using device firmware upgrades to Bluetooth 4.2 and beyond. The BGM111 module abstracts the complexity out of RF design, the Bluetooth Smart protocol and embedded programming. Silicon Labs' Blue Gecko portfolio provides developers with the flexibility to begin Bluetooth development with BGM111 modules and then transition to Blue Gecko SoCs when needed with minimal system redesign and full software reuse. Customers who need the opportunity to optimize the bill of materials (BOM) and reduce R&D cost can begin designing with the module for faster time to market and minimal design effort, and then later migrate to a Silicon Labs Blue Gecko SoC-based design with a seamless software experience. The BGM111 module is supported by the most efficient development environment in the Bluetooth market. Silicon Labs' wireless SDK gives developers the flexibility to use either a host or fully standalone operation through the easy-to-use Bluegiga BG Script scripting language. Using a familiar BASIC-like syntax, BGScript enables developers to creat Bluetooth applications quickly without using external MCUs to run the application logic. All application code can be executed on the BGM111 module, eliminating the need for an external MCU, which helps reduce cost and board space and speeds time to market. Bluetooth Smart application profiles and examples are also available to streamline development. The BGM111 modules incorporate all features of Blue Gecko SoCs and come with 256 kB flash and 32 kB RAM, providing ample memory for onboard applications. The SoC's built-in hardware cryptographic accelerator offers the assurance of a future-proof roadmap for evolving security requirements. Flexible hardware interfaces enable easy connection to a variety of peripherals and sensors. An integrated, high-efficiency antenna makes RF design and operation consistent and straightforward for developers of all skill levels. The BGM111 module's ultra-low power operation enables Bluetooth Smart systems to be powered from a standard 3 V coin cell battery or two AAA batteries. The SoC's integrated ARM Cortex-M4 processor-based MCU consumes 59 µA/MHz in run mode and only 1.7 µA down to 200 nA in sleep mode. The SoC's on-chip Bluetooth Smart transceiver consumes only 7.5 mA in peak receive mode and 8.2 mA at 0 dBm in peak transmit mode. The transceiver also provides the industry's most flexible transmit power, configurable up to +8 dBm and supporting exceptional line-of-sight RF range of up to 200 meters.
