Using built-in Ethernet MAC and a PHY interface, WIZnet’s W5300 10/100 Ethernet controller IC offers speeds up to 50 Mbps while supporting 8 simultaneous sockets with a 8- or 16-bit data bus. The device’s has compatibility with TCP, UDP, ICMP, IPv4, ARP, IGMP, PPPoE and hybrid TCP/IP stacks on a 150-MHz internal core with 128-KB Tx/Rx
“Can you stand another ZigBee presentation?” was the greeting I received from one of the many exhibitors I met at the 2008 Sensors Expo in Rosemont, IL. Indeed, wireless industrial networking devices were in abundance at this year’s show, along with what seemed like an increasing amount of companies presenting MEMS-based devices.
Many designs require a small amount of high-speed, instant-on programmable logic. These designs drive the thriving market for Complex Programmable Logic Devices (CPLDs). This article examines the definition of CPLDs, their applications, design methodologies and which factors to consider when selecting a CPLD.
Developing Comprehensive, Cost-Effective Hardware and Software Solutions for the Cardiac Device MarketAugust 6, 2008 10:46 am | by Jose Villasenor Fernandez, M.D., Global Medical Applications Specialist, Freescale Semiconductor and David Niewolny, Medical Product Marketing Manager, Freescale Semiconductor | Articles | Comments
According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death globally. An estimated 17.5 million people died from cardiovascular disease in 2005, representing 30 percent of all global deaths. Of these deaths, 7.6 million were due to heart attacks, and 5.7 million were due to stroke. By 2015, an estimated 20 million people will die from cardiovascular disease every year, primarily from heart attacks and strokes. Many of these deaths may occur with no previous symptoms of cardiovascular disease.
Offering 24 constant-current outputs capable of driving from 5 to 80 mA each at 25 MHz, STMicroelectronics’ STP24DP05 RGB LED driver supplies light to video displays, billboards, graphic boards, colored traffic signs and variable message signs. The serial-in parallel-out FIFO uses built-in error detection controlled for
Addressing applications requiring high power levels such as, AC, DC, and linear motors the Bassoon from Elmo, is a Servo Drive with Absolute Encoder that can support up to 6 A of continuous current, while delivering up to 1.9 KW of continuous power and 3.8 KW peak. The servo drive features
Operating over a frequency range from 1560 to 1580 MHz, Z-Communications’ CLV1570B-LF L-band VCO offers a typical phase noise of -108 dBC/Hz at an offset of 10 KHz and a typical tuning sensitivity of 25 MHz/V. The 0.50” × 0.50” × 0.13” device performs in a tuning voltage range from 0.50 to 4.50 VDC on a 5-VDC supply while
