Aiming at CATV set-top boxes with multiple tuners, ANADIGICS’ APS3608, APS3611, and APS3623 active splitters operate in products with Multimedia over Coax Alliance (MoCA) functionality such as multiple-tuner TVs, TV tuner cards, and broadband
Offering harmonic distortion of less than -54 dBc (Sine wave), Protek’s Model B8040FD DDS function generator uses a keyboard for entry of waveform parameters including Square, Pulse, Triangle, Ramp, Sine (x) x, Plus Noise, Exponential Up, and Exponential Down. The device has a frequency range
Offering 48 Vin at 97% efficiency for loads from 50% to 100%, Ericsson Power Modules’ PKB4302NG eighth-brick DC/DC bus converter supplies an output power of 300 W at 42 A in through hole and baseplate variations. The fixed ratio intermediate device yields an input voltage range from
Low-power, Zero-drift Instrumentation Amplifier Provides Accuracy and Extended Battery Life in PortablesJuly 14, 2008 6:21 am | Product Releases | Comments
Texas Instruments Incorporated introduced a low-power zero-drift instrumentation amplifier. The device is presented as having the lowest quiescent current and lowest input bias current versus competitive products, as well as desirable power-to-noise ratio, low offset voltage/drift and 1.8 V operation. The INA333 is suited for a variety of precision
Exhibiting maximum output currents of 500 mA, Aimtec’s AMSR-78Z Series DC/DC step-down converters yield an output voltage range from 1.50 to 15 VDC and input ranges (up to 6:1) extending from 4.75-34 to 18-34 VDC. The RoHS-compliant devices operate at full output power without heatsinking or forced-air cooling below
Operating with IP65 die-cast aluminum end panels, Hammond Manufacturing’s 1457 Series enclosures have availability with or without integral flanges with sealing using o-ring screw seals and closed cell polyethylene sealing gaskets. The devices are designed to house PCBs mounted horizontally into internal
Reducing Power Supply Component Count by 30%, Power Integrations' LinkSwitch II Series AC/DC switched-mode power conversion ICs eliminate the need for optocouplers and all secondary-side CV/CC control circuitry as well as all control-loop compensation circuitry. Integrating all control and protection circuitry plus a 700-V MOSFET in an 8-pin package, the devices have a CV output tolerance of ±5% and
Having a 13-bit (8192-count) per turn resolution, BEI Industrial Encoders’ Model L18 absolute encoder contains ASIC electronics, sealed bearings, and BEI’s code disk. The optically-based device comes in a 1.8” servo package in all-metal housing. The encoder is well suited for semiconductor fabrication
Yielding 1.0 A from a 2.5-V input using 3 external components, Maxim Integrated Product’s MAX8815A step-up DC/DC converter provides adjustable output from 3.3 V to 5.0 V or preset output of 5.0 V with an input ranging from 1.2 to 5.5 V. The 3-mm² 10-pin TDFN-packaged device has quiescent
Provided in a CLCC-2 flat SMT ceramic package 0.7-mm thick, the VLMW82 Series of white LEDs from Vishay have a thermal resistance of 20°C/W and an optical power output from 9,000 to 18,000 mcd. Offering a service life of approximately 50,000 hours, the InGaN devices have a 3.3 x 3.4 mm footprint and are optimized for display backlighting and other illumination applications.
Providing a simultaneous-sampling measurement system for demanding signal acquisition applications, two multi-channel, 16-bit, delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) from Texas Instruments operate with a 25-kHz bandwidth, a 2 µV/C offset drift and a SNR of up to 97 dB. The ADS1174 (4-channel) and ADS1178 (8-channel) ADCs have operating modes that allow for optimization of speed (52 kS/s) or power dissipation (7 mW/channel).
Advanced technology vehicles are the wave of the future, but they aren’t the elegant solutions advocates posit them as. The conservation of one resource inevitably comes at the expense of another resource. A report by Carey W. King and Michael E. Webber of the University of Texas suggests that plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) will place a strain on the nation’s freshwater resources. The research compares miles driven with a conventional internal combustion engine vs. a PHEV.
