Suited for today’s power-hungry, battery-powered electronics including mobile phones, PDAs, MP3 players, digital cameras and handheld instruments, Micrel’s MIC5331/32/33 dual channel micro-power LDO regulator consumes a maximum of 40µA with both outputs enabled.
Curtiss-Wright Controls announced its CHAMP-AV6 VPX DSP engine which delivers a sustained intercard data rate of 8.68 GB/s, a 16× improvement over the quad PowerPC-VME-based DSP engine. The device uses the standard IPC communications library, highlighting the inherently low overhead of both SRIO and the IPC library, which together were able to deliver approximately 92 percent of the “wire speed” of the SRIO links. Features include four Freescale 8641 single/dual-core processors, backplane connectors capable of handling signaling speeds in excess of 6.25 Gbits/sec, and 1.0" pitch option defined by the VPX-REDI standard (VITA 48) that enables the use of several enhanced mechanical design elements to achieve higher power dissipation.
Connect One announced the IIEVB-PIC-2128-110/220 reference design and a corresponding evaluation board that bring together the 16-bit MCU for application control and the CO2128 iChip for secure, reliable TCP/IP connectivity to LAN and GPRS networks. Using the evaluation board, developers can quickly and easily develop an IP-enabled embedded system where the application resides on the PIC24 MCU and the networking and security are provided by the CO2128 iChip.
Enabling switching PCIe 2.0 data rates at 5.0Gbps and operating at 1.8V, 2.5V, or 3.3V, the MAX4888A and MAX4889A dual, passive PCIe switches allow multiple PCIe graphics cards to be used in PCs and servers. The MAX4888A (dual single-pole/double-throw- 2 × SPDT) is suited for switching two Rx or Tx equivalent lanes while the MAX4889A quad switch offers twice the capacity, handling four equivalent lanes of PCIe data with the equivalent half lanes used as one source and two destinations or two sources and one destination to minimize the effects of crosstalk. Both feature a single digital-control input (SEL) to switch signal paths designed to minimize power and skew and offer a zero delay switch. Specifications include operation from a single +3.0V to +3.6V power supply and down to +1.65V over the extended -40°C to +85°C temperature range.
Encapsulated in a heat- and UV-resistant silicone compound, Avago’s one-Watt ASMT-MA00 amber and ASMT-MR00 red LEDs accept a drive current as high as 350mA to deliver an output of up to 42lm.
