International Rectifier introduced a 25 V synchronous buck converter DirectFET MOSFET chipset for point-of-load (POL) converter designs, and server, high-end desktop and notebook computer applications. The chipset combines the company's latest generation HEXFET MOSFET silicon and benchmark DirectFET packaging technology to provide a high
Using designs to simulate 0.062” (1.580-mm) thick daughtercards, Sullins Connector Solution’s male edgecard connector series come with phosphor bronze gold-plated contact fingers that are standardized with 10 or 30 µ” overall gold over 50µ” nickel. Tail options for the RoHS-compliant devices include 100 µ” pure tin or 5 µ” gold in lengths ranging from 0.100” (2.54 mm) to 0.560” (14.220 mm) with
Addressing the rapidly-growing international trade in stolen IP, counterfeit chips, and cloned designs, Algotronix has launched DesignTag, a novel concept in tagging using a small low-cost IP core that can be included into an FPGA design or built into a semiconductor. It allows ownership of the design to be positively established and helps in the fight against piracy and fraud. DesignTag is a digital core coded with a customer-specific "signature" that can be identified externally from a working device without needing to read the FPGA bitstream or decapsulate the chip.
The Imaging Source announced a series of LED lighting modules that seamlessly integrate with The Imaging Source USB, FireWire and GigE camera.
