With thermal resistance of the Tx PIN Diode on the order of 6ºC/W, the MSW2000 Series of surface mount PIN Diode SP2T Switches can handle C.W. incident power levels exceeding 100 W @ 85ºC. Tx-Rx Isolation is in excess of 40 dB, and it allows less than 10 dBm leakage to the receiver port with a 50 dBm Tx applied signal.
The LPH-204B USB hub from Vaunix Technology provides as much as 1 A current at 5 VDC to each of its four USB ports simultaneously. The USB hub supports low speed, full speed, and high speed peripherals with data transfer rates to 480 Mb/s with superior Vbus regulation of +/- 2% typical over all specified load conditions.
Texas Instruments announced the availability of Code Composer Studio v4, an upgrade to its integrated development environment (IDE) based on the Eclipse open source software framework. CCStudio v4 is compatible across
Supporting internal 20-33 MHz operation, Innovasic's IA186XL and IA188XL are form, fit, and function compatible with the original Intel® 80C186XL and 80C188XL 16-bit high-integration embedded processors. The industrial-temperature-grade devices have the same set of peripherals including standard numeric interface, interrupt control unit, chip-select unit/Ready Generation Logic
SuperSpeed USB connections — coming in 2010 — will zip data between devices at a theoretical rate of 5 Gbps, or more than 10-fold faster than a high-speed USB 2.0 connection. The faster transfers could help embedded-system developers who design video kiosks, TV recorders/players, and test-and-measurement equipment that use large quantities of information.
Unlike some people have hoped, the Internet hasn't led to big changes in the socio-economic makeup of Americans engaged in civic activities, a new study from the Pew Internet and American Life Project finds. As in offline politics, people who participate in online civic life - by contacting government officials, making political or charitable donations or signing petitions, for example - tend to be richer and better educated.

Is it a book? Is it a movie? Is it a website? Actually it's all three. Anthony Zuiker, creator of the "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" U.S. television series, is releasing what he calls a "digi-novel" combining all three media -- and giving a jolt to traditional book publishing.
With more than 2 GHz analog bandwidth, the SVM3500 quad-channel 12-bit digitizer from Agilent is intended for applications in radar, Electronic Warfare (EW), and Synthetic Instrumentation (SI). The VME/VXS module allows channel interleaving to provide sampling up to 2 GS/s. Other features include: total harmonic distortion (THD) of 80 dBc at 500 MS/
As in the case of the house sparrows, mobile towers are posing a serious threat to honey bees, hitting apiculture, which is a source of additional income to rural folk across Kerala, says a study.
Two series of board-to-board and board-to-FPC connectors from Hirose Electric features contact pitches ranging from 0.4 mm to 2.54 mm. The DF series features mated height from 0.9 mm to 8.0 mm and contact positions from 9 to 100. The FX series includes mated heights from 2 mm to 16 mm
With the Graphics Display Designer software tool and the Graphics PICtail Plus Daughter Board With 3.2” Display Kit (both from Microchip), designers can integrate graphics display functions into embedded applications using a single microcontroller. The software tool has 16-bit color depth; configurable display size; and object re-sizing
Germans, who sometimes see themselves as guardians of the environment, are hoarding energy-guzzling incandescent light bulbs ahead of a looming European Union-wide ban, the GfK market research agency said.
