AVX Corporation (Greenville, SC) has expanded the capacitance range for its High Voltage Multilayer Ceramic (MLC) Chip Capacitor Series. The series is available in both X7R and NP0 (C0G) options. Features include voltages from 600V to 5000V and capacitance values spanning 1.5pF to 0.82µF in case sizes ranging from 0805 to 3640.
International Rectifier (El Segundo, CA) introduced the IRS2983 control IC for single-stage Flyback and Buck-Boost topologies used in LED drivers and power supplies. The IRS2983 employs primary side regulation that reduces component count and simplifies design by eliminating the opto-isolator and other components necessary for isolated feedback for fixed loads.
ANADIGICS (Warren, N.J.) introduced the AWB7222 power amplifier (PA), optimized for WCDMA, HSPA, and LTE small-cell applications. The new AWB7222 operates in the 1805 MHz to 1880 MHz frequency band, delivering an industry-leading combination of output power, linearity, power-added efficiency and thermal characteristics.
Fairview Microwave (Allen, TX) has released a new line of compact hot-switchable variable attenuators. RF attenuators are used to reduce the amplitude of an electronic signature in many common electronic scenarios including lab testing equipment, distributed antenna systems (DAS) and power and signal monitoring systems.
Ironwood Electronics (Eagan, MN) has recently introduced a new high performance elastomer socket for 0.5mm pitch QFN package. The SG-MLF-7079 socket is designed for an 8mmx8mmx0.8mm package size and operates at bandwidths up to 10 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss.
The BelGAS division of Marsh Bellofram Corporation (Newell, West Virginia) introduced the global market introduction of its Type 5000 explosion-proof two-wire pressure transmitter, expressly designed for industrial field service. Designed for maximum durability, the compact, rugged, and reliable Marsh Bellofram BelGAS Type 5000 P/I transducer is a two-wire device....
ProPhotonix Limited (Salem, New Hampshire) announces the addition of four new visible laser diodes from Oclaro that they will distribute, including the HL63193MG, HL63153AT, HL63163DG, and the HL40041MG. The new HL63193MG offers high optical output power (700mW) at a wavelength of 638nm....
Isola Group S.a.r.l. (Chandler, AZ) announced that it has begun alpha testing of Tachyon, its new ultra-low loss product that is engineered to reduce insertion loss on high-speed digital designs. It is specifically being targeted for high-layer count backplanes for the growing 100 gigabit per second (Gbps) market that has channel data rates in excess of 25 Gbps.
High-performance switching regulators require powerful inductors with stable inductance and soft saturation to cope with high currents. Würth Elektronik eiSos (Watertown, SD) has developed the WE-CFWI range of coupled flatwire inductors. The windings can be connected in series and in parallel.
Sunpower (Berkshire, England) has announced its new MSP-600 series of AC/DC medical enclosed type power supplies. These 600 W products comprise an extension to Sunpower’s well-established MSP-100, MSP-200, MSP-300 and MSP-450 series.
Linear Technology (Milpitas, CA) announces new high reliability H grade and military MP grade versions of the LTC3612, a high efficiency, 4MHz synchronous buck regulator that incorporates a constant frequency, current mode architecture. The device can deliver up to 3A of continuous output current....
