Operating at bandwidths up to 8 GHz, the socket features less than 1 dB of insertion loss. The sockets can handle up to 100 watts, and the contact resistance is typically 20 milliohms per pin. The temperature range is -40 C to +100 C. The pin self inductance
Forty percent smaller than standard SOT23 devices, the DAC8411 family of 8- to 16-bit, pin-compatible single-channel digital-to-analog converter (DAC) family from Texas Instruments is now available in the SC70 package. The devices accept a nominal input of 80 uA at 1.8 V, in an acceptable range from 1.8 V to 5.5 V and have a settling time of 6 µs (typical).
Measuring 7 mm H × 7 mm W × 2.5 mm T, NKK Swtiches’ GB2 Series SPST pushbuttons are suitable for high-density PCB, block, or ganged mounting. The momentary-circuit devices present off-center plungers, the Sliding Twin Crossbar contact mechanism, and an OFF momentary ON configuration. The units carry a rating of 0.4 VA max. at 28 V max. with min. recommended mechanical and electrical life of
Exhibiting approval per CSA30 (UL1203/FM3615) Class 1, Division 1 and Zone 1 Group IIB Explosion Proof, Groups C and D, American Sensor Technologies’ AST46HA media-isolation pressure sensor applies digital compensation. The compensation and Krystal Bond technology enables the unit to perform in
This "compromise" is an example of the misguided cuts that have been made in the stimulus package in the name of savings. "Clean Coal" and Nuclear power are among the best alternatives to oil we have, and to cut funding for these important technologies is shortsighted.

MECA’s 705 Series 3-dB, 90° hybrid couplers cover wireless band applications from UHF through UMTS (0.400 GHz to 2.200 GHz) with power levels to 500 W. The components are suitable for use as a duplexer for DAS head end systems or combining amplifiers for antenna sharing applications with high isolation. The units are equipped with
Designed for high-pin-count and high-density 1.27-mm pitch board-to-board applications, Advanced Interconnections’ B2B SMT connector has a mated height of 19.05 mm. The component offers 8- and 10-row configurations, from 240 to 500 positions, and a current rating of 3 A per pin. The unit employs screw-machined terminals with
Aimed at existing sixteenth-brick users who want to power higher-demand applications without redesigning boards for larger products (eighth-brick), the sixteenth-brick PKU-B DC/DC module from Ericsson can deliver an output of 5 V at 20 A. Using a line-regulated half-bridge configuration with the control circuit on the primary side, the 8.3-mm high EN60950-rated converter operates at up to 92% efficiency with a power density as high as 312 W/in2.
Exhibiting a noise level of 30 aF, e2v’s CPIC2.0 interface IC enables acceleration, pressure, altitude, humidity, rain, level, and gas measurements in MEMS transducers with a base capacitance from 1 pF to 32 pF. The component contains a dual capacitor input enabling several configurations, including "Delta"Csens/"Sigma"Csens. The device embeds a temperature sensor and an EEPROM for storage of calibration parameters, temperature, and
Presenting blue, red, and green standard colors, Elma Electronic’s new line of LED assemblies can be customized to include different levels of indicating brightness for each LED within the same unit to meet a specific indicating goal. Customized colors, such as orange, amber, and white, are also available. Most LED designs are
At CES 2009 in Las Vegas this year, it appeared that every major LCD TV manufacturer had at least one model with an LED backlight. It quickly became apparent that there are some clear advantages to using LEDs as the light source, but a closer look at the way this solid state lighting is implemented raises some interesting questions. First, let’s cover the plus side.
Based on gallium arsenide (GaAs) integrated circuit (IC) technology, five broadband power amplifiers from Teseq are intended for EMC testing environments with non-ideal load conditions. Operating from 0.8 GHz to 3.1 GHz and 2 GHz to 6 GHz, the amplifiers feature power levels ranging from 30 W to 450 W. All units are powered from a switched mode power supply
The LP1 series, an illuminated round pushbutton switch from E-Switch, features multiple LED color options of blue, green, red, white, and yellow.

Many “standard” and proprietary protocols use the media-access controller (MAC) and the physical circuits (PHY) associated with IEEE 802.15.4 radios. Those protocols use their own arrangements of bits and bytes to transfer information between nodes, but none of them use the Internet Protocol (IP). So they cannot directly communicate with Internet-based devices and Web servers/browsers.
Consisting of a PCIe host card, cable, and chassis, Magma’s ExpressBox² (EB2) seamlessly expands the available PCIe slots of desktops, workstations, servers, and laptops. The unit supports communication bandwidth between host and
