Targeted for applications requiring Freescale high-performance Power processors
Arcom announced its TITAN RoHS-compliant PC/104 (3.8" × 3.6") single board computer based on the Intel 520 MHz PXA270 XScale RISC processor. The SBC is targeted at ultra-low power, fanless embedded systems, and it is available with a wide operating temperature range. The efficient board design has a typical consumption of 1.5W, and it also supports several dynamically adjusted sleep modes to further reduce its power. It is powered from a single +5V
Pepperl+Fuchs introduced its R2 FieldConnex Segment Protectors. This product family allows the segment protector to be disconnected while leaving trunk communications uninterrupted, and they inherently prevent over-termination that can cause start-up and commission problems. They are also designed to eliminate errors that can occur while
MaxLinear announced the MxL5007T, a TV tuner IC developed for low-cost converter, set top box (STB) and other TV systems currently being designed for the FCC-mandated 2009 digital television cutover. Measuring 5 mm × 5 mm in a 32-pin QFN package, the IC features high levels of integration (including LNAs, baluns, tracking and loop filters, and integrated
Photonic Products announced two high-power, infrared wavelength GaAlaS laser diodes from Opnext Inc. The HL8337MG and the HL8338MG are useful as light sources for industrial and medical sensor applications and for optical devices such as distance meters, barcode scanners, and high-resolution CTP. The HL8337MG and the HL8338MG have a typical lasing wavelength of 830 nm and a high optical output power of 50 mW CW
Anritsu Company introduced a Stressed Eye Measurement Suite for its MP1800A series of Signal Quality Analyzers that offers desirable repeatability for measuring the average output power level difference (OMA), extinction ratio, and Vertical Eye Closure Penalty (VECP) of optical signals. The hardware and software solution provides designers and manufacturers of 10GBASE-L/10GBASE-E optical modules
A split-ring version of the Aegis SGR Bearing Protection Ring now is available in halves for easy field installation with little or no equipment disassembly. For variable frequency drive AC and DC motors, the SGR Split Ring protects bearings from electrical damage by channeling currents to ground. Conductive microfibers in the ring provide the path of least resistance, allowing these shaft currents to discharge safely
The DVS-1600 high-integration OEM interface controller from Digital View is designed to address a broad range of TFT LCD monitor applications. The board’s flexible port architecture provides physical inputs for DVI, VGA, S-Video and Composite Video, along with a wide range of video modes.
Productive Product: Sometimes technology ideas are so good and so obvious that we don't even dare to suggest them, for fear of being rebuffed with a sarcastic, "Yeah, right!" An example is the idea that all of life's gadgets could connect to a single universal power supply -- no more jumble
Molex Incorporated introduced its 170-circuit AdvancedMC connector solution for 12.5 Gbps NRZ signal transmission. The connectors support PIGMG AdvancedTCA industry specifications for next-generation mezzanine cards and are well-suited for a wide range of applications in the telecommunications, computing and IEEE 1386 markets, as well as non-ATCA applications.
Fluke Corporation announced the Fluke 566 and Fluke 568 Thermometers, which feature broad infrared (IR) temperature measurement functionality, an on-screen menu system and a dot-matrix display enabling users to take even complex. Both thermometers combine contact and non-contact temperature measurement capability in a single tool. The thermometers provide a broad temperature measurement range from -40°C to 800°C (568) or -40 °C to 650 °C (566) at one percent measurement accuracy
PEM's threaded flare-in access hardware, MAThread, now has a captive screw assembly for permanent installation into almost any panel hardness or material. MAThread corrects off-angle installations to help align components and to push through clogged threads. Fastener caps are available in knurled (for operator access) or smooth (for service access) styles, and in thread sizes from #4-40 through ¼-20 and M3 through M6
Vishay Intertechnology released an LDO controller with adjustable and fixed output voltage options that uses external n-channel MOSFETs to provide extremely low drop-out voltages of under 50 mV at very high currents, up to 7A, with, according to the company, 80 percent efficiency. The SiP21301 device is designed for driving n-channel MOSFETs to power FPGAs, ASICs, and ASSPs in
Maxim Integrated Products' MAX3540 integrated, single-conversion television tuner for ATSC and NTSC applications meets the sensitivity and adjacent-channel guidelines specified by ATSC Recommended Practice A/74, while consuming 760 mW. The tuner integrates a tracking filter and high-linearity front-end. Additionally, it
Haydon Switch & Instrument Inc.'s Linear Rail Systems product line uses a precision leadscrew assembly to provide controlled positioning along the axis of a linear slide. The system consists of a stationary base with a load-bearing carriage that travels along an extruded, wear-resistant aluminum rail. Motion comes from a standard or double-stack external linear actuator
