The ACPL-570xL/573xL/177xL series hermetically sealed 3.3-volt optocouplers from Avago Technologies are intended for use in aerospace, industrial and military applications. The series includes single, dual, and quad channel hermetically sealed optocouplers that are capable of operation at temperatures ranging from -55°C to 125°C
Provided in the 0.5-mm-high SOT-963 package, the CMRDM3590 from Central Semiconductor contains dual N-Channel Enhancement-mode MOSFETs.
Available in versions providing most popular output voltages including 3.3 VDC, 5 VDC, 12 VDC, 15 VDC, 24 VDC, 36 VDC and 48 VDC, the 25-W LS25 and 35-W LS35 families of enclosed single-output AC/DC power supplies operate with an input from 88 to 264 VAC at 47 to 63 Hz.
The MAP 4000 Series monitor/controller from Novotechnik includes up to four limit switches. It can perform up to 40 measurements/sec. The Series’ limit switches are programmable and operate via relays. The inputs are also programmable for potentiometers, DC voltage, current/voltage, resistance, and temperature sensors
The CobraMax family of ultra high-speed 8-bit digitizers from GaGe features up to 4 GS/s sampling and 4 GSamples of on-board memory. The digitizers are available with 1 or 2 digitizing channels and up to 1.5 GHz of input bandwidth. Other features include: Reference Clock In and Clock Out
There’re strange brewings in the auto industry. President Obama once remarked that “unless we free ourselves from a dependence on these fossil fuels and chart a new course on energy in this country, we are condemning future generations to global catastrophe.” Fresh off its government bailout, General Motors has devoted “significant resources” to the Chevy Volt, an "Extended Range Electric Vehicle" set for release in 2011. Obama’s response?
Said to provide a high level of signal rejection, the Model S2065 notch filter from Anatech Electronics is for use in the television broadcast band (Channels 62 to 68). The filter has 3-dB passbands of DC to 750 MHz and 850 to 1200 MHz, rejection at 800 MHz to 806 MHz greater than 70 dB
Intended for deployment in optical systems, ATE, broadband test and measurement equipment, frequency synthesis, and radar signal processing systems, six pin-compatible industry replacement high speed logic products from Hittite Microwave provide operating clock rates up to 26 GHz
Working with any of the company’s sensors, encoders, or magnetostrictive devices, the SwiftComm Wireless Interface from BEI Industrial Encoders attaches directly to the SSI port in the controller, just like a conventional wired system.
Targeting applications such as hearing aids, miniature microphones, and battery-powered amplifiers, the IFND89 N-Channel JFET chip from InterFET has integrated back-to-back diodes.
Cyberdyne Corporation of Japan, in conjunction with Daiwa House, has begun mass production of a cybernetic bodysuit that augments body movement and increases user strength by up to tenfold.
Able to record and store over 16,000 temperature readings from -35 to +80ºC and over 16,000 relative humidity readings from 0 to 100% at user-selected sample rates, the EL-USB-2-LCD standalone USB datalogger from Lascar Electronics has a 2½-digit LCD to indicate minimum, maximum, and last stored temp/RH readings.
Tinkering with Earth's climate to chill runaway global warming — a radical idea once dismissed out of hand — is being discussed by the White House as a potential emergency option, the president's new science adviser said Wednesday. That's because global warming is happening so rapidly, John Holdren told The Associated Press in his first interview since being confirmed last month. The concept of using technology to purposely cool the climate is called geoengineering
Hand-formable cable assemblies from Electronic Assembly Manufacturing (EAM) use a copper-tin composite outer conductor to achieve shielding effectiveness of more than 100 dB. The cable assemblies provide typical insertion loss of 0.7 dB/ft. at 20 GHz for a 0.141-in. diameter cable. Typical VSWR is 1.13:1 @ 18 GHz
Available in two models — a 3-I/O layer (5-slot PPC5-1G) or a 6-I/O layer (8-slot PPC8-1G) — the PowerDNA PPCx-1G Gigabit Ethernet I/O Cube from United Electronic Industries (UEI) is compatible with all 30+ UEI I/O board types. The 6-layer model (PPC8-1G Cube) can provide up to: 150 analog inputs, 192 analog outputs, 288 digital I/O
