Targeting Mil/Aero and other hi-rel applications, Vishay's Tantamount Hi-Rel COTS T97 Series of solid tantalum chip capacitors are presented as the first of their kind with a 63-V rating and a capacitance of 22µF in the "F" case size. The part addresses the long-standing issue of derating, allowing designers to incorporate solid surface-mount tantalum capacitors into their hi-rel +28-V power supply designs.
Having a UL- and cUL-rating of 20 A at 125 VAC, Phaseda’s HY29 Series power toggle switches present a horse power rating of 2 with availability in single-pole and double-pole versions. The TUV-approved component offers functions including ON-OFF, ON-ON, ON-OFF-ON and (ON)-OFF in industrial control applications. The RoHS-compliant switches offer terminals with a 0.25 quick connect or solder lug as well as a
Performing over an output frequency of 26 MHz, Valpey Fisher’s VFTX312 temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) includes a voltage control option from 0 to 3.3 V that is suitable for femtocell (3GPP) reference timing. The device offers a temperature stability of 0.1 ppm while operating over a temperature range
According to Doug Ramsey of UC San Diego, “The information technology industry consumes as much energy and has roughly the same ‘carbon footprint’ as the airline industry.” This is because of the unparalleled growth in high-speed electronic equipment, and the corresponding electricity requirements. Not only is energy necessary for the systems themselves, but as IT equipment blossoms, so does their cooling requirements. It’s an implacable scenario that currently plagues the IT industry. Similar to hipster environmentalist celebrities who globe-trot on private jets, how do you conduct scientific research into efficiency issues when your investigative process gobbles up energy?
Coming in 36 different models, Renesas Technology’s 80-pin R8C/38E, 64-pin R8C/36E and 48-pin R8C/34E 16-bit MCUs uses on-chip Flash memory with various ROM and RAM (32 KB/2.5 KB, 48 KB/4 KB and 64 KB/6 KB) and optional on-chip data flash of 4 KB with a background-operation function. The devices come
Enabling the connection of additional wires without cutting the main conductor, OKW Electronics’ CISB Series isolated connection strips and blocks offer cable capacities from 14 to 10 AWG in the smallest blocks and from 3/0 AWG to 300 MCM in the largest size. The four smallest sizes (up to 2 AWG) come in 12-pole strips and the five largest
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.

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
Providing a transmissive sensing capability for design engineers, the OPB420 Series from OPTEK, is a slotted infrared optical switch for non-contact interruptive object sensing. The switch includes an infrared LED and phototransistor, allowing for an opaque object to block the light beam from
