The J-STD-020- and UL1577-standardized devices consist of a high-speed AiGaAs LED driven by a CMOS IC and utilize lead-free (Pb-free) terminals. The RoHS-compliant optocouplers have
Targeting space-constrained systems in networking, industrial, and other applications, the RP-30 Series of 30-W DC/DC converters from RECOM have a 2" × 1" footprint and a power density of 2.28 W/cm³. The shielded and potted devices are available in versions with 2:1 inputs of 9 to 18 V, 18 to 36 V and 36 to 75 V as well as 4:1 input ranges from
NEC Electronics introduced 22 new 16-bit All Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) for compact, low-power, battery-operated and sensor-enabled systems. Based on the company’s 16-bit 78K0R CPU core, the 78K0R/Kx3-L MCUs offer low power consumption to extend battery life, and additional on-chip integration to help reduce the size and cost of battery-driven and sensor-enabled systems. The lineup also offers
What technology trends do you feel will dominate the development of next-generation displays?
Master Bond’s Supreme 11AOHT two-component room temperature curing epoxy adhesive offer high thermal conductivity and desirable electrical insulation properties. The paste can be applied without sagging or dripping even on vertical surfaces, and it has a mixing ratio of 1 to 1 by weight or volume. Supreme 11AOHT has a service
Combining touch key and touch slider functions, Atmel’s AT42QT2160 touch controller controls up to 16 individual touch keys with a slider comprising between 2 and 8 of the touch key channels. The device controls up to 11 LEDs through a PWM output function and has 3 GPIOs with 8 shared output ports through a 2-wire interface (I2C compatible). The 28-pin 4-mm2 QFN-packaged controller uses
Having a 70 mV typical dropout voltage (3 V output with IOUT at 200 mA), Seiko Instruments’ S-1155 Series CMOS voltage regulators have an output voltage range from 1 to 5 V selectable in 0.05 V step with ±1% accuracy and an input voltage ranging from 1.50 to 5.50 V. The lead-free SOT-89-5-packaged devices yield
Providing a constant-current output with an accuracy of ±1%, the BP58xx Series of solid-state lighting drivers (SSLD) integrates all required LED-driving control circuits, switching elements, isolation transformers and constant-current circuits into a single SIP package. Operating at an efficiency of 85%, the 32.9 x 25.0 x 15.1-mm dimmable modules are set via an external resistor and
A Swiss Academic Study, “The 2000 Watt Society,” is gaining a lot of traction in the environmental movement. First developed by researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, the latest treatise ("Smarter Living") was coordinated by Novatlantis, and is an urgent call to action. In short, it proposes an overall reduction in energy consumption to the world-wide average of 2,000 watts per capita by the year 2050. Naturally, the US bears the brunt of the scorn.
Lansdale Semiconductor now has the single-source rights to continue to manufacture Freescale’s MC1350 IF, MC1490 RF, and MC1590G monolithic IF amplifiers incorporate automatic gain control in a product life cycle management system. The devices are well suited for telecommunication, commercial (MC1350 and MC1490) and defense/military/aerospace (MC1590G) applications. The RoHS-compliant MC1350 and MC1490 fit well in up to 70 MHz audio and video
Designed for operation in mobile and other rugged environments, the BAP 65-5FD-24/12FT single-output 300-W DC/DC converter provides 12 VDC at 25 A distributed via 5 individually-fused output terminals to ensure that failure on one load will not affect the entire system. The chassis-mount device accepts from 21 to 30 VDC
Computationally intensive DSP functions often require hardware acceleration. Increasingly, designers are implementing their DSP algorithms in FPGAs because they offer better performance than DSP processors. Benchmarks show that FPGAs execute turbocoding, GPS correlation, H264 and other DSP functions much more quickly than DSPs.
