Xilinx, Inc. announces its Virtex-4 FPGA-based deserializer reference design, application note and evaluation module jointly developed with Texas Instruments. The reference design, along with the accompanying application note, deserializes data streams from TI's ADS6000 analog-to-digital converter (ADC) family, providing designers with an easy way to deploy products based on the latest advanced ADC device technology. The evaluation module,
Edmund Optics announced the TechSpec family of light pipe homogenizing rods for OEM illumination needs. The rods use total internal reflection to turn a non-uniform light source into uniform illumination and deliver it to the target site. Also known as integrating rods, light pipes utilize total internal reflection to effectively randomize entrance angles at their output aperture. The result is a homogenization of the original light source’s spatial intensity distribution, providing greater uniformity of illumination at the rod’s end. These rods are suitable for
Visual Communications Co. introduces its LMC Series Micro Litepipe from that is just 2.5 mm in diameter. Its near flush design provides a method of transmitting light from a surface mount or through-hole LED to the front panel. The small diameter allows the litepipe to be virtually unseen until the LED is activated.
LEDtronics announces its discrete 5 mm (T1½) standard dome aqua green LED. This water-clear lens, 525 nm aqua green LED with a narrow 15° viewing angle integrates an Indium gallium nitride (InGaN) diode with optical grade epoxy to produce a 28,000 mcd illumination at 20 mA that is visible in direct sunlight. The LD200-0AG-15D lights up many different types of applications.
Global Lighting Technologies announces it MicroLens edge-lighting modules that provide white LED backlighting for LCDs that serves a multitude of functions with a minimum of LEDs for a range of display applications. In addition to bright, uniform white LED backlighting from an ultra-thin, low-power package, these light guides can provide discrete area backlighting for different parts of the display
Endicott Research Group introduces the W10M Series DC/AC inverter from that provides a wide input voltage of 8V to 24V, high efficiency, a low profile of <10 mm high and reliable starts for LCDs backlit by one or two CCF lamps. These inverters provide from 2W to 12W of output power with multiple connector options and an operating temperature range of -30°C to +85°C.
Dialog Semiconductor Plc launches a range of display drivers and evaluation kits to support electronic paper segmented displays from E Ink Corp. The DA852x drivers are highly integrated devices, and they are capable of driving 20-, 64-, 96-, 192- and 256-segment paper-thin electronic displays which can be integrated into several applications such as mobile phones, capacity meters (e.g. memory cards)
DDP announces its Model P81 solid-state LED indicator light that features a snap-in installation to a ½¨ panel opening. It can be modified to include a shunt resistor and metal oxide varistor to protect against circuit noise and transient voltage spikes in critical monitoring and harsh environment applications. To enhance angular visibility, the indicator light is offered with clear or colored Lexan lenses in stove pipe or flush mount configurations.
FCI announces its Metral coplanar power modules that can be used in Zone 3 to interface between a front board and rear transition module (RTM) in an ATCA system. Each five-row module provides 10 stamped-and-formed power contacts. Headers use a blade contact structure, and the corresponding receptacle connectors use dual-beam contacts. An individual power blade is rated for 3A nominal continuous current with current applied to all contacts
SMART Modular Technologies (WWH), Inc. announces its DDR3 unbuffered DIMM product family to address the projected needs of DDR3-enabled high-end desktop systems, supporting DDR3 unbuffered DIMMs ranging from 512 MB to 2 GB. Providing improved system speeds (up to 667 Mhz/1,333 MHz data rate), lower power consumption (1.5V vs. 1.8V for DDR2) and larger memory densities from DDR2
