Utilizing a RG58 cable with a U/V stable polypropylene radome and 3M VHB Series 2-sided adhesive gasket, Astron Wireless Technologies’ LP8319H, LP8615H, LP8619H, LP9119H and LP9219H dual band antennas present a power handling capability of 50 W. The 4.50” OD × 1.06” H devices offer vertical polarization with a
The inherent weakness of any portable device is its isolation from a constant power source, such as electricity. Thus, battery technology has evolved alongside the iPod and laptop computer. But batteries themselves are inefficient, because they either deplete themselves, or in the case of rechargeables, require electricity supplied from a power grid. But what if you could harness the energy produced by the natural motion of the human body? Bionic Power is endeavoring to accomplish that with its “Biomechanical Energy Harvester.”
Having a cast aluminum cover, Linemaster Switch’s Linemaster Junior foot switch is said to eliminate lower leg stress and pain after many hours of usage while standing or sitting. The device is suitable for applications including communication equipment, conveyors, terminal application equipment, computer software programs and
Running off of a 32 kHz oscillator, Freescale Semiconductor’s MC9S08QE32 8-bit MCU demonstrates current consumption of less than 7.3 mA on an operating voltage range from 1.8 V to 3.6 V. The device exhibits 2 low-power stop modes, low-power run and wait modes, clock gating registers to disable clocks or unused peripherals and

Working with 120 VDC to 370 VDC supplies, RECOM Electronic’s RAC-SB Series of 5 W and 10 W single-output AC/DC power supplies exhibit universal inputs ranging from 90 VAC to 264 VAC. The 2” × 1” encapsulated PCB mount or panel mount devices present five output voltage options ranging from 3.3 VDC to
Previously analog-to-digital converters (ADC) at high input frequencies were limited in usefulness due to distortion and noise performance. Today, however, ADCs can provide nearly 9.5 bits of effective number of bits (ENOB) at radio frequencies (RF) of 1 GHz with signal bandwidths greater than 200MHz. Such performance at high frequencies eliminates a mixer stage, simplifying receiver design to improve overall system performance.
When engineers tackle a project that uses ZigBee communications they may get a surprise. Unlike point-to-point communications, ZigBee involves a network that can establish nodes, repeaters and complex mesh topologies. The proper test tools--often called "sniffers"--help engineers diagnose ZigBee-network problems that could otherwise turn into nightmares.
