Featured products & technologies
Reduce system size and cost and meet EMI standards
New active EMI filter (AEF) ICs reduce the size of chokes by up to 50% and mitigate common-mode emissions for single- and three-phase AC/DC systems. Learn how to maximize performance, reliability and power density of designs with AEF ICs today.
21 topologies. 12 powerful functions. 1 free tool.
For over a decade, the Power Stage Designer™ software tool has helped engineers calculate voltages and currents for numerous power supply topologies. In version 5.0, we've added a variety of new functions, a new and improved GUI, and a new topology.
Improve EV range with battery cell & pack monitors
New automotive battery cell and pack monitors with the most accurate measurement capability available on the market, maximizing electric vehicle (EV) drive time and enabling safer operation.

Read about the latest power management trends
There are limitations to achieving more compact power supplies that can be overcome with switching properties, IC packaging, circuit design and integration innovations.
Innovative semiconductor design and packaging technologies are improving efficiencies in data centers as server power demands increase.
As electronic systems become more dense and interconnected, reducing the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI) becomes an increasingly critical system design need.
Battery management systems (BMS) have evolved with the widespread adoption of HEVs/EVs with subsystems that work together to improve safety and efficiency.
