Ricoh Electronic Devices Company partners with Mouser to distribute power management and real time clock ICs
Amstelveen, the Netherlands, 19 July, 2016 – Ricoh Electronic Devices Company, Ltd. (REDC), a fully owned subsidiary of Ricoh Company, Ltd and Mouser Electronics, Inc., a leading authorised distributor of semiconductors and electronic components, are proud to announce a global partnership focusing on the distribution of Ricoh’s Power Management and Real Time Clock ICs.
The global agreement allows REDC to offer its products via another distribution channel next to the traditional regional distributors. Through a one-stop-shop service, design engineers will have direct access to select from a wide range of Ricoh devices for their consumer, automotive and industrial applications.
Mouser’s strong commitment to worldwide customer service, fast delivery and accuracy, equal Ricoh’s core values. REDC believes this partnership will bring mutual benefits and means a further step in its global expansion.
Ricoh’s semiconductor product offering on Mouser.com includes a variety of analog solutions providing low current consumption, high accuracy, small sized packages and high reliability. Featured products are Voltage Regulators (LDOs), Supervisory ICs, DC/DC Converters, Load Switches, and Real Time Clock (RTC) ICs. A brief overview:
LDO Voltage Regulators
The large line-up is designed for a wide range of purposes, including specific products with advanced current saving technology, low output noise, fast transient response, wide operating voltage range or ultra-small sized package.
Providing several solutions to the market such as voltage detectors to monitor a voltage threshold, watchdog timers to monitor proper processor operation and reset timer ICs to reboot an application with a key combination when needed.
Available in buck, boost and buck-boost configurations in both low and high operating voltages, the main feature for these products is to achieve a high efficient voltage conversion in either Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) or Variable Frequency Modulation (VFM) operating mode.
These devices are designed for either general use or optimized for specific applications, such as driving white LEDs for display background illumination, driving active or passive matrix OLED displays and products for LED lighting.
Integrated load switches are electronic relays that can be used to turn a power supply rails on and off. REDC offers a number of products like USB high side protection switches, load switches, battery power line switches and overvoltage protection switches.
Real Time Clock
The portfolio includes products with a 2 wire I2C, 3 wire and 4 wire SPI serial bus interface, available with basic features only, with integrated backup battery switchover circuit and modules with integrated crystal.
A high accuracy programmable calibration adjustment to minimize clock deviation is used in all RTC products. Another advantage is the combination of a low minimum operating voltage and low current consumption in order to maximize the backup battery lifetime.
