As we head into the New Year, looking towards the future, our minds are always drawn to the past. “Auld Lang Syne” means roughly ‘long times past”. Our ruminations on the past vary from individual to individual; one may look back nostalgic, another regretful, and the third satisfied. The most important thing to remember is that the past is past, and we must embrace the future or face the consequences.
When considering a relative humidity sensor for one’s application, the selection process involves a series of choices to meet application requirements and key parameters while, at the same time, insuring that the product selected delivers the lowest total cost solution. Despite the diversity in humidity sensor applications and specifications, the desire
Manufacturers offer a variety of small modules that let engineers easily add an Ethernet port to a design. They may need only a UART or I2C port in a main system to communicate with and control one of these modules. But if engineers stop there they will miss many other capabilities offered by these modules--actually single-board computers (SBCs).
Operating at 5 µA of quiescent current, the TPS61220 2-MHz DC/DC boost converter from TI supports an input voltage of 0.7 V to 5.5 V and an output voltage range of 1.8 V to 5.5 V. The chip maintains 85 percent efficiency at light load, provides output current up to 50 mA at a 5-V output, and discharges the system’s lithium-ion battery
Built on the PowerPC 7447A processor, the RACE++ Series PowerPC 7448 Multicomputer from Mercury Computer Systems is comprised of a Mercury MCJ6 motherboard and two faster daughtercards that interface directly with the RACE++ switch fabric. The two daughtercards combine two 1.06-GHz MPC7448
Based on the CO2144 chip, Connect One's Nano LANReach embedded LAN module connects embedded devices to 10/100BaseT LANs via a built-in RJ45 connector. The 2.5-cm × 3.5-cm product offers plug-and-play Serial-to-LAN functionality, enabling transparent bridging of serial data over LAN using a UART while supporting
Based on ispMACH 4000 CPLD architecture, Lattice Semiconductor’s ispMACH 4064ZE and ispMACH 4128ZE CPLDs (complex programmable logic devices) target high-volume, handheld designs. The 6-mm × 6-mm devices exhibit typ. standby current of 10 µA, a nominal 1.8-V power supply with operation down to 1.6 V, Power Guard dynamic power reduction, and per pin pull-up, pull-down, or bus keeper control; an on-chip user oscillator and
Although the ramifications of end of life (EOL) announcements have long been an issue for OEMs in the mil/aero marketplace, many still fail to put a workable plan in place to face this reality. As a result of the increase in end-product programs for these industries, long-term support requirements can sometimes extend for decades, leaving customers in a difficult position as they source components for ongoing production, maintenance and repair.
Potential solutions for providing application-specific functionality in embedded systems typically come with trade-offs in terms of cost and time to market. With few projects having the lead-time, budget or high-volume payback potential to tool-up for custom chip or hardware production runs, the best answers often revolve around "modular" solutions.
