Peregrine Semiconductor Corp., a Murata company, has announced the ARC3C family of light-emitting diode (LED) driver integrated circuits (ICs). The ARC3C product line is designed to meet the demands of the ultra-high-definition (UHD) liquid crystal display (LCD) market for notebooks and ultrabooks. The drivers deliver improvements in power conversion efficiency, while providing the lowest height profile and smallest footprint in the industry. With up to 10 watt output power, the ARC3C products can save up to 1 watt of power in the LED boost circuit, improving battery run time for a notebook computer typically by one hour.
Jim Cable, chairman and CTO of Peregrine Semiconductor and global R&D director at Murata Manufacturing, explains "The ARC3C family of LED boosts completes a range from Arctic Sand that can address everything from smartphones to high-end UHD notebook computers. It's innovations like the ARC3C product family that get us one step closer to Murata's vision of revolutionizing power electronics with the world's smallest, most efficient power solutions.
The first three products in the family — the ARC3C0845, ARC3C0640 and ARC3C0445 LED drivers — are sampling in May. For Arctic Sand sales information, or to request samples, please contact Stephen Allen (firstname.lastname@example.org).

The 2016 event was mentioned in our writeup on a startup from USC that built interest in their affordable AR device while sharing cabin space with venture capitalists onboard a chartered flight to the event.
In 2018, the IEEE Radar Conference arrives in vibrant Oklahoma City for the first time. Being centrally located in the US, OKC is known for great Southern cuisine, Midwestern hospitality, and a good helping of Wild West cowboy culture. Nearby Norman, OK is also the home of NOAA’s National Severe Storms Laboratory and the Advanced Radar Research Center at the University of Oklahoma, who collectively have driven much of the modern-day weather radar technology in the US. Do not miss this exciting week filled with novel radar advances and down-home fun.
For more than 30 years, the combined annual Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits has been the world’s premier mid-year conference for microelectronics technology, providing an opportunity for the world’s top device technologists, circuit and system designers to exchange leading-edge ideas. Held together since 1987, the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits have alternated each year between sites in the US and Japan, enabling attendees to learn about new directions in the development of VLSI technology & circuit design through the industry’s leading research and development presentations.
The comprehensive technical programs at the two Symposia – fully overlapping again this year – are supplemented with short courses, invited speakers and several evening panel sessions. Since 2012, the Symposia have presented joint focus sessions that include invited and contributed papers on topics of mutual interest to both technology and circuit attendees. A single registration enables participants to attend both Symposia.
