Extreme levels of vibration

Schunk Sonosystems is a global leader in developing and building machines for ultrasonic metal welding – such as their industry-leading flexure sonotrode. Their machines include a sonotrode or welding tip that transfers vibrational energy to the workpiece. Up to two high-strength bolts are required to fix the sonotrode, which is subject to extreme levels of vibration due to the very high frequency used in ultrasonic welding.

Ultrasonic welding is a solid-state welding process that uses ultrasonic vibrations to weld pieces of metal together. The metals are welded together by heat generated by friction when applying high-frequency ultrasonic vibrational energy.

The BUMAX DX 129 (Duplex stainless steel) offers very high tensile strengths of min. 1,200 MPa and excellent fatigue resistance properties. It deals successfully with the with extreme forces during the ultrasonic welding process, such as 20,000 vibrations per second.

Excellent fatigue strength

The high fatigue strength that BUMAX screws offer is crucial to their ability to withstand a high number of cycles without fracture. All BUMAX bolts are made with the highest quality European steel, and its advanced manufacturing processes result in the further enhancement of the material’s fatigue resistance properties.

Fatigue fracture often begins with a stress concentration such as inclusions, slags or surface defects. The high-quality raw materials BUMAX uses, together with the best metallurgical processes and good surface properties, guarantee excellent fatigue strength. BUMAX also uses rolled threads rather than cut threads, which further increases fatigue resistance.

Renesas Develops Complete Power Management Solution for AMD Space-Grade Versal Adaptive SoC

ELE Times - Thu, 07/20/2023 - 08:52

Reference Design Packs Multiple Rad-Hard Core Power Rails in Ultra-Compact Footprint, Delivering Turnkey Efficiency and Precision

Renesas Electronics Corporation, a premier supplier of advanced semiconductor solutions, today announced a complete space-ready reference design for the AMD Versal™ adaptive system-on-chip (SoC) XQRVC1902. Developed in collaboration with AMD, the ISLVERSALDEMO2Z reference design integrates key radiation-hardened components for power management, including four new and recently released products in an ultra-compact design. These Intersil-brand ICs are specifically designed to support a wide range of power rails for next-generation space avionics systems that demand tight voltage tolerances, high current, and efficient power conversion while withstanding the harsh environment of space.

As core voltages decrease and currents increase for FPGAs and ASICs, it has become more difficult to meet the stringent power requirements of these devices to ensure that they operate error-free. This is especially critical in space missions where power availability is limited, and systems are exposed to extreme temperatures and radiation for an extended period of time.

To address these challenges, Renesas has collaborated with AMD to develop a complete power management solution for the AMD Versal platform. The Versal Adaptive SoC is an industry-leading space-grade compute platform that delivers full radiation tolerance, accelerated AI inference, and high-bandwidth signal processing performance. The ISLVERSALDEMO2Z generates each of the power rails utilized by the Versal platform, including a low 0.80V core voltage supply that can source up to 140 A (amps) of current.

“As the number of satellite and spacecraft launches continues to accelerate rapidly, high-performance computing platforms such as the Versal Adaptive SoC are becoming more prevalent, necessitating new power solutions,” said Chris Stephens, Vice President, and General Manager of the HiRel Business Division at Renesas. “Our new reference design has been meticulously engineered to meet the rigorous demands of operations in space while integrating all of the essential components into a very small footprint. It is an ideal turnkey solution for Versal Adaptive SoC power management.”

“Power management for high-performance digital platforms like our AMD XQRVC1902 Versal space-grade adaptive SoCs cannot be taken for granted, particularly when they are used in the harsh environment of space,” said Minal Sawant, senior director, Aerospace & Defense Vertical Market, AMD. “The combination of our radiation-tolerant Versal space-grade SoC and Renesas ISLVERSALDEMO2Z power solution provides our customers with the precision, efficiency, and dependability that are paramount for the successful execution of space missions.”

Renesas’ new reference design comes with an array of power management devices that have been tested and verified to withstand exposure to high levels of radiation. These include Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) controllers, GaN FET half-bridge drivers, point-of-load (POL) regulators, power and enable switches, and power sequencers. The devices come in small-footprint packages, so the core power rail components take up just 104 square centimeters of board area, approximately equivalent to two business cards.

Additionally, the ISLVERSALDEMO2Z comes with all of the design files that customers need for rapid integration into their systems, including schematics, bill-of-materials and PCB Gerber files.
