Direct Broadcast by SatelliteMotor controlLightingWorking closely with DBS system developers, Diodes applies its design and process expertise in analog and RF engineering to produce highly integrated solutions that help achieve the sector's cost reduction, performance and power efficiency goals. The Diodes' Zetex range of more than 50 versatile, high reliability DBS ICs provides highly integrated solutions for the complete spectrum of DBS applications, from LNBs and satellite switch boxes to VSAT and DiSEqCT systems.

An intelligent approach to electronic system cooling is required. Air movement needs to be optimised, power consumption needs to be closely controlled and the audible noise that's generated needs to be kept to an absolute minimum. At the heart of the most complete variable speed control solutions for single and two phase brushless DC fans, blowers and pumps are the Zetex ZXBM1000 and ZXBM2000 series of motor pre-driver ICs. Providing flexible thermal control based on thermistor, voltage and PWM inputs, they suit a wide range of applications from mainframes to desktops.

Diodes range of LED drivers are developed to tackle a range of applications including white LEDs for display backlighting, safety and security lighting, camera flash, architectural lighting and automotive lighting.

Maintaining consistent illumination whilst limiting battery power consumption demands robust and efficient high-brightness LED (HB LED) drivers. Zetex boost LED drivers and buck LED drivers are not only recognized for their high efficiency and cost effectiveness, they're also renowned for their incredible versatility.

AudioPower managementClass D architecture has been around for many years, but historically efficiency gains have been at the expense of audio quality. Now the advantages of Class D with sonic performance that truly rivals that of prestige linear amplifiers.

By understanding how to tackle the often-competing design constraints of efficiency, functionality and package size, Diodes is able to offer world beating power management chips that meet the requirements of a broad range of portable electronic equipment. An expert in power management, Zetex works closely with customers to define the precise needs of a particular application and to identify the most appropriate discrete and integrated solutions for getting the most out of limited power resources.
