Advanced Analogic Technologies Inc. announced the AAT3620, a fully integrated single-cell Lithium-ion battery charger capable of supplying up to 2 A charge current in a 3 × 3 mm TDFN package. This dual mode produce provides a switching charger during Constant Current (CC) and Constant Voltage (CV)mode. To minimize EMI and RFI emission, the device
Using planar transformers, a converter from Premo features a power range to 10 kW. This technology includes a high input voltage level (500 V to 1,000 V), and switching frequency can be defined between 70 kHz to 160 kHz. Other examples include: less than 35 W of losses at 100°C, and compliant with standards including IEC 61558 and
Magnetec Cool Blue nanocrystalline cores from MH&W International are intended for use as common mode chokes. The cores provide a range of permeability of 25,000-90,000 at 10 KHz, and a saturation flux density of 1,200 mT. The smallest core for high power motor applications has an outside diameter of 63 mm and inside diameter of 50 mm. The largest core has a 500 mm OD and 450 mm ID
Wacker Chemie announced Thursday that it will build a $1 billion plant with 500 jobs in southeastern Tennessee to produce hyperpure polycrystalline silicon, a product used to make solar panels and semiconductors. Company executives, Gov. Phil Bredesen and economic development officials said the company has purchased a 550-acre site about 30 miles northeast of Chattanooga.
Pushing the envelope of Albert Einstein's "spooky action at a distance," known as entanglement, researchers at the Joint Quantum Institute (JQI) of the Commerce Department's National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and the University of Maryland have demonstrated a "quantum buffer," a technique that could be used to control the data flow inside a quantum computer. Quantum computers could potentially speed up or expand
Intended to enhance the workflow for digital line sensors such as the ADS80, Leica XPro line sensor workflow software by Leica Geosystems and North West Geomatics covers the process from data download to image generation. A Downloader Module performs a mass-memory captured-data overview with data extraction or data replication, and a viewer enables quick checking of downloaded images
Designed for applications with up to 3.1 W of output that require Energy Star EPS v2.0 compliance, the LinkSwitch-II LNK632DG switcher IC from Power Integrations enables the creation of power systems with a no-load power consumption of 30 mW or less. The ICs eliminate the need for optocouplers and all secondary-side CV/CC control circuitry, as well as all control-loop compensation and clamping circuitry.
Targeting applications such as photogrammetry, computational chemistry, and virtual simulation, the StereoMirror SD1710 3-D/stereoscopic display from Planar Systems supports 1,280 × 1,024 resolution in stereo. Two LCD monitors separated at a 110° angle with a semitransparent mirror bisecting the space between the two monitors generates stereo separation when used with polarizing glasses. This creates a stereoscopic 3-D image that
Operating in the 2.4-GHz-to-2.5-GHz and 5.1-GHz-to-5.9-GHz bands, Laird Technologies’ S245112PT directional and S24517PT sector dual-band external MIMO antennas are intended to enhance the latest generation of WLAN technology systems. The devices contain 3 MIMO antenna elements, each of which is connected to the WLAN access point via a low-loss, coax pigtail. The S245112PT targets point-to-point and
Incorporating bonded foil strain gage technology and RTD elements, Stellar Technology’s Series PT170 and PT17XX transducers integrate a pressure sensor and temperature sensor in one package. The devices measure dynamic and static pressures and temperatures, and exhibit shock and vibration protection. The Series PT170 provides

Researchers say a newly tested method for producing super dense, defect-free, thin polymer films is the fastest, most efficient method ever achieved and it may dramatically improve microelectronic storage capabilities, such as those in computer memory sticks. In the February 20 issue of the journal Science, researchers at the University of Massachusetts Amherst and their colleagues at the University of California Berkeley report
