Spectrum Control introduced metric threaded EMI filters with an M3 X 0.5 Feed-thru circuit and an M4 X 0.7 Pi circuit. The filters are easily mounted in a tapped hole or thru-hole and have a hex head dimension across the flats of 4.0 mm. The metric threading makes these EMI filters appropriate for designs in European and Asian markets. Spectrum's metric threaded EMI filters have capacitance values ranging from
American Bright Optoelectronics’ Brite-X LED devices offer a low power approach to solid state lighting (SSL) design that reduces thermal management issues and still maintains an LED system efficacy of nearly 70 lumens per Watt (4200K CCT). The system is entirely modularized, allowing system designers total freedom to choose the appropriate number of LEDs per module or the total aggregate number of modules and their geometric layout to achieve desired luminaire output.
XLoom Communications introduced its iFlame optical chip, a multichannel, high-density, cost-effective, optical engine for grid computing and data center applications. iFlame, a chip-scale four-channel optical transceiver, is aimed at data center applications running over InfiniBand, Ethernet and Fiber Channel. The chip, implemented as an optical engine, enables high-speed, high-density interconnect applications such as Opto-electrical media converters, optical active connectors and cables as well as traditional transceivers
Mitsubishi Electric announced the development what it claims to be the first worldwide compact and pluggable 10 Gbps optical communications transceiver (MF-10KWXF series) capable of optional tuning of DWDM (dense wavelength division multiplexing) in the entire C-band. The transceiver complies with the 10 Gbps form factor industrial standard XFP-E (small form factor pluggable extended) MSA
AMD introduced the Quad-Core AMD Opteron. Designed from inception for datacenters, Quad-core processors with the company’s Direct Connect Architecture introduce innovations that go beyond four x86 processing cores on a single die of silicon.
Minmax's MSLU100-Series 1W DC/DC consists of 21 models that operate over input voltage ranges of 5VDC, 12V DC and 24V DC which provide precisely regulated output voltages of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, ±5V, ±12V and ±15VDC. They meet IPC/JEDEC J-STD-020C 4th and 5th chapter in solder-reflow for lead free process, are in "gull-wing" SMT package, and weigh 1.2g.
Sensoray announced the addition of the model 335 to their PC/104 line of products,. The PC/104+ module supports CardBus and PC cards (PCMCIA). It will support two Type I or Type II 32 bit PC cards or one Type III allowing the expansion of additional functions such as: 10/100/1000 Mbps wireless Ethernet adapters, biometrics readers, Bluetooth cards and GPS cards.
National Semiconductor Corporation introduced what is said to be the industry’s first common-anode, current-mode, high-brightness light-emitting diode (LED) driver with pulse-width modulation (PWM) dimming. The LM3433 drives high-power, high-brightness LEDs in backlighting, projector and solid-state lighting applications.
Schaefer, Inc. introduced the C300 Series of 150W DC/DC Converters, AC/DC Power Supplies. The C300 DC/DC product line boasts 7 DC input ranges of 10V to 16V, 18V to 36V, 36V to 75V, 45V to 90V, 80V to 160V, 160V to 320V, and 320V to 380V with 10 single output voltages ranging from 5V DC to 220V DC. The C300 AC/DC Series offers the same range of output voltages from a choice of 110V AC, 230V AC, or 115V AC to 230V AC inputs.
SMSC has addressed limited bandwidth and distance issues for networking technology in the home with a device that distributes multiple high definition (HD) TV streams simultaneously. Its LAN9131 is a wired Ethernet multimedia co-processor that currently supports DLNA guidelines. Because authentication and encryption processing have become essential when transferring copyright protected digital content between devices.
Xceive’s next generation silicon tuner, the XC5000, is optimized for large screen hybrid televisions, is an alternative to conventional CAN tuners and provides desirable sensitivity, adjacent channel, phase noise and dynamic range. For analog televisions, the tuner meets an unweighted signal-to-noise-ratio of 54 dB and a noise figure of </6>
AVX Corporation has designed a ceramic capacitor that virtually eliminates the risk of short-circuit failure, according to the company. Terminated with the company’s FLEXITERM technology introduced last year, the capacitors are designed to absorb shock and prevent internal cracking due to board flexure and temperature cycling damage. The components are also structured with a cascade electrode design (effectively two capacitors in series within one MLCC)
Products that operate over a wide temperature range can take advantage of the Winsystems PPM-GX, a PC/104-Plus-compatible single-board computer (SBC) based on the AMD GX500 processor which runs x86-compatible software. This SBC works with PC/104 and PC/104-Plus I/O modules and operates between -40° to +85°C without the need for a fan. The board offers the CPU and video, LPT, mouse, audio and keyboard controllers
The small packages -- down to 6×6 mm -- Microchip Technology uses for its newest PIC24F 16-bit microcontroller family do not compromise memory or I/O capabilities. The chips, available in 28- and 44-pin QFN packages, include 16 Kbytes to 64 Kbytes of flash program memory and as many as 8 Kbytes of SRAM. The PIC24FJ64GA004 family lets developers use a pin-mapping function to connect I/O devices to specific MCU pins as needed.
Hi-Tech Software has announced a new compilation technology that generates object code based on call- and pointer-reference graphs derived from all the modules in an embedded program. The new technology, called Omniscient Code Generation (OCG), overcomes problems in conventional compilers that can miss inconsistent calling conventions, variable declarations and redundant code because they compile each module independently and separately. OCG results in more easily ported code that is nearly 50 percent more dense than code from competing compilers.
