Minmax's MIHW3000 Series power modules are designed to provide ultra-high levels of isolation 5600V DC in a low profile 24-pin DIP package. Operating input voltage ranges of 9V DC to18V DC, 18V DC to 36V DC and 36V DC to 75V DC which provide precisely regulated output voltages of 5V, 12V, ±12V and ±15V DC. The -40°C to +55°C operating temperature range makes it suitable for
Maxim Integrated Products introduced its DS4412 dual-channel, sink/source current DAC. This I2C-controlled, 4-bit current DAC features two output channels that are explicitly designed for power-supply margin testing and adjustment. Each output channel provides control of a DC/DC power supply by sinking or sourcing current directly into the power supply's feedback node.
Delta Electronics, Inc. introduced the DNQ Family of Point-of-Load (POL), non-isolated converters into their Delphi Series of Board Mounted DC/DC power converters. The device operates from a 10V to 14V input range, provides 25A of single channel output current in a vertically mounted, through-hole or horizontally surface mounted package. It features a programmable output voltage via external resistors and is adjustable from a 0.8V to 5.5V output through this external resistor.
Kontron’s 6U CompactPCI Gbit Ethernet switch for high-end communications is available in three rugged levels. The Kontron CP6923 PICMG 2.16 compliant 6U CompactPCI managed Ethernet switch with 24 link ports and two 10GbE XFP uplink connections comes in three rugged levels defined as R1, R2 and R3. The R2 and R3 versions are available with
Rad-icon Imaging Corporation announced its Shad-o-Box 1024 Hi-Res x-ray sensitive imaging camera that utilizes the company's RadEye x-ray specific digital image sensor. This high-resolution, compact, stand-alone camera features a 14-bit output and parallel digital interface (LVDS) for direct input to a digital frame grabber. Total power dissipation is less than 6W.
New Scale Technologies added a smaller, lower-power module to its SQL-M line of SQUIGGLE micro-actuator modules. Each module incorporates a piezoelectric SQUIGGLE motor - claimed to be the world’s smallest linear motor – with optical limit switches in a compact polymer housing. The new SQL-M-1.8 micro-actuator module measures
Agilent Technologies introduced two options for its compact, low-power (<15 W), high-speed Acqiris 8-bit PCI digitizer. The U1071A-002 model option is an entirely new version of the PCI digitizer product introduced in 2007. It provides the 8-bit, dual-channel data conversion operation of its original, with up to 2 GS/s sampling rates and a reduced analog bandwidth of 500 MHz. Designed for applications with intense data-acquisition requirements, the memory options provide up to 256 Msample of acquisition memory, or 128 Msample per channel in two-channel mode.
Advanced Analogic Technologies Inc. announced today two mini-Power Management Units (PMUs) that combine three step-down DC/DC converters in a single monolithic IC. Targeted at portable devices, the 3-channel AAT2784 and AAT2785 allow designers to add one 1.5A synchronous step-down converter and two 300 mA synchronous step-down converters or one 1.5A synchronous step-down converter and two 600 mA synchronous step-down converters
Everlight Electronics Co. Ltd. introduced the 1W EHP-AX08/P01 and EHP-AX08/P03 3W high-power LED families. The emitters feature a silicon lens, high luminous flux (up to 90 lm/W) and low thermal resistance (15°C/W, Typ.). Sized in an industry-standard 8 mm x 8 mm x 5.7 mm SOP package, these LEDs are designed to handle higher reflow soldering temperatures
Elma Electronic Inc. announced an open frame chassis for test/debugging. The unit does not have side or back walls around the card cage area, leaving it open for easy access. The E-frame was designed with the high (and flexible) power and cooling requirements for VPX (VITA 46/48) systems, any 3U or 6U backplanes can be used. This includes VME/64x, VXS, CompactPCI, and other backplane architectures. The Type 39E Portable Tower has a convenient carrying handle
International Rectifier introduced the IR3514 and IR3507 XPhase chipset for AMD parallel and serial VID (PVID and SVID) processors.
