Does anybody make an IC that takes I2C command and outputs duty cycle (PWM)? I need to control bunch of TECs from CPU and I2C-> PWM seems the most efficient (and smallest) way to do it. Any suggestion will be appreciated. Thanks Michael

Seems like every time I start a new power design, I waste a bunch of time looking for the ideal PWM controller. At the end of the day I'd really like to have the simplest IC possible to handle just the PWM function, and I provide my own error amp, gate driver, and reference externally. The ideal part would look like this: oscillator set by resistor, comparator non-inverting input,

Hi all. I need a basic voltage mode PWM controller for a buck converter project. I need a wide duty cycle range, like 5 - 95%. I don't need an error-amp in the ic, since this part is placed elsewhere in my circuit. So, a basic Ramp generator and a PWM comparator, and an output stage. An UC3843 would suit if it were voltage controlled instead of current. I've gone through Fairchild, ONsemi we...

Follow up from the thread Oct 2019 Minimising EM noise from PWM switched fairly lights? Hi folks, Recap - this is an educational project for my son to drive some existing garden LED fairy lights from a Raspberry Pi ZeroW The only problem, as fully expected, is they are chucking out more EMI than I'd like and I don't want to be causing problems for others. So - yes, it's a crappy co...

Hi, I am experimenting with white LED COBs and wanted to power them from a constant current source while still having the PWM dimming capability. The current limiter should be located next to the diode and the lamp "interface" should be regular two wires. In other words, the current limiter should be capable of being powered from a +12V/open drain source with the PWM frequency of ~400H...

What's a good way to make a, say 2 or 3 GHz sinewave oscillator? I don't need extreme accuracy, and I'd like maybe 1 volt p-p. I was thinking a cheap MMIC with PCB delay line feedback. MiniCircuits VCOs are around $20, which isn't bad. The output would go into a PWM modulator and then an AC-coupled communications channel.

I've been asked to design an 8-channel dummy load board. It's not very challenging but somebody's got to do it. It will be used to simulate small loads like solenoids or relays or torque motors. It needs some inductance too, because the drivers often PWM. Maybe 10 or so watts per channel. I could do this electronically, but it would a lot easier and more rugged if I use wirewound resist...

The datasheet says V_T+ is 2.2--3.7V (@5.5V), while V_T- is 1.4--2.5V and deltaV_T is 0.7--1.4V. This would be good enough for *some* deadtime i
