Using a resonant topology, the CLC175 single-output open-frame AC/DC power supply from XP Power can deliver up to 175 W. The 3” × 5” × 1.25” device has a power density as high as 9.3 W/in.³ and an efficiency as high as 87 percent. Only 10 cfm of forced airflow is required for full power, and a 12-VDC 0.5-A fan output
Hipsters of the world rejoice! Mini has announced the greatest thing since arthouse theater—an electric version of the Mini Cooper. Unveiled at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show, the Mini-E is the first highway legal all-electric vehicle. Amazingly, the Mini-E is heavier than its internal combustion engine (ICE) counterpart (curb weight of 3,230 vs. 2,546 for the ICE). This will satisfy those who feel greater mass equals greater safety. Despite its added bulk, the Mini-E has even greater front/rear weight balance than the ICE.
Micrel introduced the MIC2605/6, two wide-input range integrated switch and Schottky diode boost regulators operating at 1.2 MHz (MIC2605) and 2 MHz (MIC2606). Both devices supply up to 0.5 A switch current. The devices, which complement the company's MIC2601/2 family, are
Maintaining 0.050 contact spacing, miniature circular connectors from ITT Interconnect Solutions withstand up to 5 PSI. The connectors meet IP68 standards and all insulator and contact areas within the connectors are sealed against environmental elements. The 37-pin connectors feature a twist pin contact system
With a typical phase noise of -106 dBc/Hz @ 10KHz offset, the Crystek CVCO55CC-2770-2920 VCO (Voltage Controlled Oscillator) operates from 2,770 MHz to 2,920 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 V to 4.5 V. Output power is typically +4 dBm.
Designed to be used with the AMT series of modular encoders, a family of line driver cables from CUI measure approximately 1 m and have an operating temperature of -40°C to 85°C. Available with an on-board line driver chip (model ST26C31BDR) to convert the TTL signal to a line driver output
APEM Components introduced its P36 Series, RoHS compliant, DIP Coded Rotary switches. The series comes in a compact, 7.4 mm square package, designed to save PCB space. Typical applications include security systems, laboratory instrumentation, telecommunications equipment and computer peripherals. These DIP coded rotaries are available in
Shock test rated to 50 G, Mobile Equipment Sensors from Pepperl+Fuchs are IP69K rated. Temperature range is -40°F to 185°F. Sensors are available in 12-mm, 18-mm, and 30-mm diameters to deliver 4-mm, 8-mm and 15-mm sensing ranges, respectively. The sensors are fully compatible with Deutsch, Weatherpack (Packard)
Featuring a single-piece aluminum block, the Boreas family of high power fiber lasers from Eolite Systems is available in HE and HF. The HE comes in two different models: HE40 (1030 nm, 40W, 7 ns pulse duration, 2 mJ pulse energy) and HE80 (1030 nm, 80W, 7 ns, 2-mJ pulse energy). The HF is available in five different models depending on wavelength
With a round stub-tail termination for a reduced solder footprint inside the package outline, Mill-Max SMT Strip Sockets and Pin Headers implement a .008” floating-pin design to compensate for uneven solder paste application on the board surface.
ECN is your #1 source for coverage of the 2009 International Consumer Electronics Show. Starting January 7, our man on the ground, Jason Lomberg, will be posting a daily photoblog from the Las Vegas show floor. Special thanks to Andrew Maiman for his photography.
Micronor's MR190 Universal Manual Pulse Generator (MPG)/Handwheel is billed as the industry's first MPG to offer both A/A'B/B' differential line driver and A/B pull-up quadrature outputs in the same unit.
