Protek Power announced the PMP150 Series of medically approved desktop AC/DC power supplies, which pack 150W of power into a compact 3.00” × 8.17” × 1.72” package. The series has active power factor correction, a 90V AC to 264V AC input, and offers single output models ranging from 12V DC to 48V DC. Input to output isolation is 4,000V AC and leakage current is specified at 90uA for the 115V AC input.
SMP blind-mate connectors that can handle frequencies up to 40 GHz are now available from Emerson Network Power's Johnson subsidiary. These precision connection interfaces use a miniature, slide-on/snap-on system ideal for high-density packaging. They correct axial and radial misalignment and are compatible with all SMP and GPO. Several configurations are
The IM3220-BA10 MCU and the single board reference module from Imsys helps enable telecom, ITU G.8261, compliance. Designed and optimized for embedded applications, the IM3220 combines the features of traditional CISC architectures and efficient use of resources with FPGA flexibility for a predefined application – time synchronization.

Linear Technology's LT5570 provides RMS (Root-Mean-Squared) power measurement of a 40 MHz to 2.7 GHz AC signal over 60 dB dynamic range, even with a modulation crest-factor of up to 12 dB. It offers measurement accuracy of ±0.5 dB over its full dynamic range and over a temperature range of -40°C to +85°C. The device offers a full-scale rise time of
Phoenix Display International introduced a line of sunlight-readable 5.7-inch TFTs with QVGA (320 × 240) resolution. The sunlight-readable 5.7” QVTA TFT module offers improved contrast, color saturation and response time over CSTN products. PDI also offers the 5.7 QVGA as a standard transmissive module with or without a touchscreen. The company achieves sunlight-readable performance by manufacturing the TFT cell using
Optima EPS, an Elma Company, announced M-series seismic cabinet enclosures designed for tight spaces. The cabinets have French-style doors with hinges facing inward, to provide full access even where racks are side-by-side or where an open traditional door would hit other equipment. The cabinets also have cross bracing, back stiffeners, and double-walled extrusions, providing a high strength-to-weight ratio to support and protect equipment during the full force of a seismic event. The design uses welded sockets and members
Novotechnik's rotary position sensors now include the RFC and Vert-x E series, designed for mobile and other limited-space environments. The sensors have a new touchless technology, which eliminates the shaft, and has a round position marker that mounts separately to distance itself from the detecting element. Sensor diameters range from 13 mm to 48 mm
Nanosilica curable epoxy, dubbed UV22, is now available from Master Bond Inc. This compound is developed for coating, sealing, and encapsulation applications. It features abrasion resistance, optical clarity, low shrinkage, and high physical strength. UV22 cures rapidly at room temperature upon exposure to an ultraviolet light source. It has an operating temperature
Texas Instruments is offering a DaVinci technology digital media processor for video transcoding in media gateways, multi-point control units, digital media adaptors, video security DVRs and IP set-top boxes. Wrapped with development tools and digital media software, the TMS320DM6467 processor is a DSP-based
SKF USA announced long lead ball screws designed for linear actuation in high-speed, low-noise applications. Their design allows the drive motor to move with the adjustment nut to help reduce inertia and use less power. Versions include the Series SLT with axial play and Series BLT with backlash elimination. Diameters range from 25 mm to 50 mm and leads range from
STMicroelectronics' STV300NH02L power MOSFET features low, micro-Ohm ON-resistance intended to reduce losses and increase efficiency in demanding power supply systems. This new high-current N-channel device is intended particularly for the paralleling configuration power supplies that are widely used in server applications. The company's ribbon-bonding technology offers a low typical Rds(on) of 800 micro-Ohms (0.8-µOhm).
Intersil announced a pair of multiple-output standard buck ICs that integrate critical power management functions to suit a variety of point-of-load (POL) applicationssuch as 5V FPGA/CPLD and DSP power supplies, 12V telecom/datacom power supplies and 24V battery-powered handhelds. The ISL8501 and ISL8510 feature a 5V fixed input voltage capability and variable input voltage ranges up to 25V. The ISL8501 is a triple output controller
Sealevel Systems expanded their line of USB hubs to include both 4-port and 7-port versions that are USB 2.0 compliant, providing a full 480M bps data rate to the host, and are backwards compatible with USB 1.1 and 1.0 devices. Each includes a wall-mount AC adapter that supplies a full 500 mA to each attached USB peripheral. The HUB4P integrates SeaLATCH locking USB ports that are fully compatible with standard USB cables.
International Rectifier introduced the SupIRBuck family of wide input, single output synchronous buck voltage regulators for high density, high performance data center applications. The family of point-of-load (POL) voltage regulators integrates the synchronous buck control ICs and HEXFET trench technology MOSFETs in a 5 mm × 6 mm Power QFN package.
