Offering 10 case sizes from 9 mm² to 64 mm², NIC Components’ NPIS_L Series shielded SMT power inductors demonstrate inductance values from 0.800 µH to ~220 µH in ±20% (M) and ±30% (Y) inductance tolerance. The devices present IRMS current ratings from 1.400 A to 7.800 A, an operating temperature range from -25°C to ~120°C (80°C operation at rated IRMS current), DC resistance from 0.006 Ohm to ~4 Ohm, and Sn-Ag-Cu
Featuring a four-finger beryllium copper contact clip with jack-screw fixing, the Datamate J-Tek Reverse Fix family of connectors from Harwin offers a fixing variant reversed from the usual orientation. The connectors are suited for use in environments where high vibration, shock, and extremes of temperature are
For members of the electronics supply chain, going “green” is not just a short-term marketing scheme rife with buzzwords but short on substance. Granted, the tech sector has jumped on its share of bandwagons, but this movement is different. It’s not just about pioneering technologies, building a positive public image, padding the bottom line or even “doing the right thing.” It’s all of the above. When state-of-the-art electronic products are energy efficient, environmentally sustainable, and cost effective, everyone wins.
Targeting semiconductor failure analysis, OptoTherm’s latest version of the Micro thermal imaging system offers a thermal imaging camera upgrade. The camera upgrade includes a 320 × 240 element uncooled detector, sensitivity of 0.05°C, a 20-µm microscopic lens, a wide angle lens, and a 16-bit digital Camera Link interface. The product measures and displays
Combining the AC input rectification function and power factor correction (PFC), and the DC-DC isolation, PFE1000F power modules from TDK-Lambda provide an output power of up to 1,008 W. The models are available with 12-V, 28-V, and 48-V nominal outputs that can be adjusted ±20 percent
Targeting legacy applications, the LPM-LX800-G STD Bus single board computer (SBC) from WinSystems provides both an upward performance migration path and a continued source of supply for STD Bus SBCs, while maintaining hardware, software, and I/O compatibility. The SBC can be populated with up to 1 GB of system DRAM
Designed to allow plug-and-play test and FPGA configuration without a computer, cable, or software, Intellitech’s UltraTAP-BT Bluetooth-enabled IEEE 1149.1/JTAG pod comes with non-volatile test program and failure memory. 1149.1/JTAG-based tests occur via the UltraTAP-BT Flash memory at a continuous test clock rate of up to 50 MHz, and test flow, test scripts, and third-party Serial Vector Format files download over a USB connection to
Offering 2- and 4-pole designs with or without hall sensors, Koford Engineering’s new line of 22-mm slotless brushless motors present efficiencies of up to 86%. The instruments demonstrate power outputs from 0.7 W to 406 W, speeds from 2,600 rpm to
In October of 1981, three semiconductor companies announced the open-architecture VMEbus, spawned by the introduction of the Motorola 68000 microprocessor. After 27 years, the VMEbus still holds the largest market share of all buses and boards. Today's bus technologies have lives measured in months, so why has the VMEbus survived and prospered while other buses have rapidly gone by the wayside? (Engineers use the terms VMEbus and VME interchangeably.)
Operating from 700 MHz to 1,000 MHz, Maxim Integrated Products’ MAX19985A dual downconversion mixer provides 2 independent downconversion channels, each with a typical IIP3 of 25.5 dBm, typical conversion gain of 8.7 dB, and typical noise figure of 9 dB. The 6-mm x 6-mm 36-pin TQFN-packaged component offers a 2LO-2RF spurious rejection of 76 dBc for an RF level of -10 dBm and 71 dBc for a level of -5 dBm. The SiGe downconverter
Addressing power-conscious systems such as those in portable devices, the TSH122 video buffer IC from STMicroelectronics has an operating current of 1.7 mA and what is presented as the lowest standby current among comparable devices, 4 nA typical, 500 nA maximum. The input voltage range is from 2.2 to 5 V, and features include a differential gain of 0.5%, a differential phase of 0.5 degrees, and a group delay of 10 ns. Attenuation at 27 MHz is typically
All around, 2008 has been a very trying year. Each day seemed to bring a new round of bad news, whether it was the real estate bubble bursting, stock markets plummeting, or the “big three” automakers petitioning congress for a bailout similar to the one given to some of the nation’s largest banks. In the electronics industry, lackluster consumer confidence, fueled by the global economic crisis...
Incorporating an IR SSLD and an I²C/SMBus interface, Intersil’s ISL29015 ambient and infrared light-to-digital converter executes ambient light and infrared sensing. The 2-mm × 2.100-mm 6-lead ODFN-packaged component uses an internal 16-bit ADC with adjustable conversion time from 25 ìs to 100 ms and flicker noise rejection of 50 Hz and 60 Hz. For
Possessing character heights of 0.28” (7 mm), 0.39” (10 mm) and 0.56” (14.22 mm), Avago Technologies’ HDSM-28xx, HDSM-29xx, HDSM-43xx, HDSM-44xx, HDSM-53xx, and HDSM-54xx single- and dual-digit 7-segment displays perform in home appliances, exercise equipment, TV set-top boxes, measurement equipment, and warning indicators. The SMT devices are built on a PCB substrate with metal tabs or end caps that can
