Endicott Research Group (ERG) has released two Smart Force solid state lighting driver (SSLD) boards as standard products for industrial and medical LCDs. The SFDE (Economical) and SFDM (Mini) Series provide full function power supplies for high brightness as well as low power consumption, low cost and a compact size.
Designed to enable the reduction in overall motor sizes, Avago’s AEDT-9340 encoder module targets Brushless DC motors used in industrial and factory automation equipment. The device includes a lensed LED source and a detector IC enclosd in a small plastic package with a switching accuracy of ±1°
It may have been a cold and damp morning in Manhattan, but that didn’t damp the passions of the participants in the Challenge X national collegiate engineering competition. This year’s challenge, sponsored by the US Department of Energy and General Motors, focuses on technology integration and full-vehicle development of advanced alternate-technology drivetrain and subsystems. By participating in the Challenge X program, the students gain real-world engineering skills and hands-on learning to better prepare them for a future career in engineering.
A variety of tools simplifies the trip from abstract DSP models to real signal-processing hardware.
Driving the next generation of handheld devices, the TPS65136 solid-state lighting driver (SSLD) from Texas Instruments manages power to AMOLED (active-matrix organic light-emitting diode) displays up to 2.5" with a buck-boost topology that allows the device to generate a positive voltage up to 4.6 V and adjustable negative output voltage down to -7 V.
In full compliance with power specifications released in draft 3.0 of the IEEE802.3at, a family of power-over-ethernet (PoE) midspan power injectors from Phihong can provide up to 33.6 W per port. Available in single-, 4-, 8- and 16-port models, the devices support demanding peripherals such as new IEEE802.11N broadband access points.
For line of sight near-field bidirectional wireless communication applications would you rather use IrDA light-based methodologies or RF?
Created to measure the electromagnetic fields of extremely low frequency (30 to 300Hz) devices such as electric transmission equipment, microwave ovens, air conditioners, computer monitors, and video/audio devices, the HHG191 Gauss meter from Omega Engineering represents allows measurements up to 2,000 mG to 200 micro-tesla with a basic accuracy of 2.5% + 6-digit.
Presenting a power density of over 27 W/in.³, the FMP25.48 rectifier from Power-One accepts an input from 90 to 300 VAC and delivers an output of -48 VDC at efficiencies exceeding 92%. Powering applications such as wireless base stations, remote switches, and broadband access
Operating with an input from 2.7 to 5.5 V, the constant current LT3593 SSLD (solid-state lighting driver, or "sled") from Linear Technology is designed to drive up to 10 white LEDs from a single Li-Ion cell at efficiencies over 80%.
