Isolated Power Supply with Pre-Qualified Transformers
Next in our new series of isolated, industrial power-supply reference designs is this isolated, 24V to 5V, 2W, flyback power supply. The design delivers 79% peak efficiency and provides up to 400mA (plus 20% overhead) at 5V output. Multiple transformers have been qualified for this design, simplifying transformer selection. Through-hole pins allow quick and easy integration with your system. This compact power solution can be used in many different power applications, such as programmable logic controllers (PLC), industrial sensors, telecom power supplies, isolated battery chargers, servers, and embedded computing.

Smart Force Sensor Human-Machine Interface (HMI) Demo
Traditional touchscreens are fragile and don't work well when wearing gloves. Our rugged, smart force sensor reference design measures mass and center of mass to provide location and downward force of the touch input in harsh environments. Watch a demo of our new concept for industrial human-machine interfaces. MAXREFDES82 is a low power design that works reliably in harsh environments where gloves may be required and glass is not allowed.
