With a leakage current of less than 0.07 mA with a 100 VAC input and 0.2 mA at 264 VAC, the EN60601-1-approved HFS150A Series of switchmode power supplies from Daitron are suitable for medical and other noise-sensitive applications.
March 2009 shipments of large-area TFT LCD panels reached 37.9 million units, showing strong M/M growth of 29%, according to the most recent DisplaySearch Monthly TFT LCD Shipment Database.
The Infrared OSTAR Lighting LED from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors allows adjustment with external optics. The LED produces 3.5 W of optical output power at an operating current of 1 A. The hexagonal honeycomb shape of this high-power component enables multiple IR LEDs to be combined to form a large space-saving matrix
Based on Hall effect technology, the 145MA micro push button from Elobau Sensor Technology provides a 0.5 V to 4.5 V linear output proportional to the displacement of the actuator. It is designed to be incorporated in the knob of a joystick or a multifunctional handle for a shifter, or into a control panel
The last time Congress passed major environmental laws, acid rain was destroying lakes and forests, polluted rivers were on fire and smog was choking people in some cities. The fallout from global warming, while subtle now, could eventually be more dire. That prospect has Democrats pushing legislation that rivals in scope the nation's landmark anti-pollution laws.
Designed for plant, HVAC/R, and electrical applications, the EX623 5-in-1 clamp meter consists of an AC/DC “amp clamp” meter, a true RMS multimeter, infrared thermometer and laser pointer, non-contact voltage detector, and dual-input Type-K thermometer.
Deployable near the antenna to reduce trace losses, NEC’s UPC8240T6N external LNA can use distributed filtering to improve noise performance in GPS receiver ICs.
Available in various lengths, cable types, conductor gauge, termination, and jacket color, GlobTek's 2-3 Conductor IEC International Detachable Power Cordsets are approved to international safety agency requirements.
Based on the PeakSwitch PKS607YN, the RDK-203 reference design kit from Power Integrations can create a dual-rail home theater audio amplifier power system with an audio power rating of up to 650 W. Providing a response time of 40 microseconds, the design can handle high-crest-factor, high-frequency audio signals.
The AS5311, from austriamicrosystems, is billed as the first Hall-effect sensor based linear magnetic encoder to offer submicron resolution. For linear motion sensing, a multi-pole magnetic strip is used and for rotary motion sensing the magnetic strip is replaced by a multi-pole magnetic ring
Electronic Paper (E-Paper) Displays from AZ Displays have a 180 degree viewing cone, making them readable from any angle. Available in five (ED050SC3), six (ED060SC4) and 9.7 inch (ED097OC1) diameters, the EPaper displays work by charging colored particles with different polarizations. Other features include
President Barack Obama is calling for the country to move swiftly to a system of high-speed rail travel, saying it will relieve congestion, help clean the air and save on energy. Appearing with Vice President Joe Biden and Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood Thursday, Obama said the country cannot afford not to invest in a major upgrade to rail travel. He said he understands it necessarily will be "a long-term project" but said the time to start is now
With over 8,000 attendees, this year’s Embedded Systems Conference (ESC) was a pleasant surprise to an industry expecting a low turnout. Held in San Jose from March 30 to April 2, the show demonstrated that while the economy may be depressed, the design engineering community isn’t.
All-optical signal processing is particularly of interest in telecommunications applications, where speed, power and cost are crucial. A key element to enable all-optical processing is optical waveguides with highly nonlinear and ultra-fast performance.
With features such as an S/N greater than 40 dB per channel, the ATS9870 GigaSample waveform digitizer from AlazarTech offers two simultaneous analog inputs that can each be sampled at rates up to 1 GS/s (one 8 bit 1 GSPS ADC per channel) and can achieve sustained rates as high as 1.4 GB/s.
