Integrating five channels into a single MSOP 8-lead package the CAT885 voltage supervisor, from Catalyst Semiconductor, provides a monitor for the power (Vcc) status of a microprocessor, microcontroller, ASIC or other system processor. Features include, an open-drain output, active-low function with manual reset for system reset and monitoring.
Utilizing a compressed air supply to operate, Vortecs' Vortex A/C not only cools electrical enclosures but also creates a positive cabinet pressure to seal out contaminants, while hot air is expelled through a relief valve. Operating within a range from 27° to 32°C, the device has dual vortex tube cooling units
Suitable for battery management in applications such as server, memory backup and medical equipment, Linear Technologies' LTC4110 offers four operating modes: battery backup, battery charge, “no-loss” battery calibration and shutdown. The device can provide a supply voltage to a system load from a main supply or battery and can also charge a battery, and is capable of supplying voltages above or below the input supply rail
Providing serial, digital, and analog I/O expansions in the front and rear on a 1.75” chassis, Sealevel Systems' Relio R4000 rackmount computer features dual 10/100BaseT Ethernet, two high-speed USB 2.0 ports, four serial ports
Intended for use in precision instrumentation, Vishay Intertechnology’s DG-series of analog multiplexers and switches have leakage currents ranging from 0.25 to 5 nA. Provided in a leadless 1.80 x 2.60-mm
Uni-Pixel, Inc.has developed a new thin film it calls Opcuity FPR (Finger Print Resistant) that can be applied to
The NAG Toolbox for MATLAB® released by the Numerical Algorithms Group is a toolbox that gives users access to
Measuring 0.380” × 0.380” × 0.220”, voltage-controlled oscillator is presented as the smallest such device of its type. Operating from 3,660 to 3,700 MHz at a tuning voltage range from 0.300 to 4.7000 VDC, the device has an output power of +4.000 dBm (typ.) for a 50-O load with a supply of +5.000 VDC. With a typical consumption of 30 mA, the SMT oscillator has pushing and pulling levels
Keeping optical power constant during temperature changes and over the device’s lifetime, Micrel’s laser diode driver includes automatic power control with fault indicator, TXenable/disable
E-paper can also bend like the newest OLED and LCD displays, but is much more energy efficient as it is a bistable (only uses power when changing the image) system that does not require a backlight. Readable in any light regular paper is, e-paper promises to create a new means of accessing information that will challenge traditional paper media. This e-paper display (EPD) from LG Display uses e-ink core tech and LG driver and backplane technology.
The Automotive Sensors division of PCB Piezotronics (PCB) released a series of acoustic sensors for use in automotive testing applications such as legislative certification, quality control, system and component performance, and vehicle and powertrain NVH, including measurements for
What would SID be without cool and different new display technologies and ways to use them?
The SID International Symposium, Seminar and Exhibition was held May 18 to 23, 2008 at the Los Angeles Convention Center in California. The biggest trends exposed at the exhibition were OLED commercialization, microprojectors, 3D imaging, E-paper, Flexible and non-rectangular LCD, and LED backlighting of every flavor. Here are some photographs from the event.
Suitable for display-dimming feedback in portable devices, notebooks, and automotive applications, the MLX75304 Light-to-Frequency SensorEyeC from Melexis has a dynamic range in excess of 100dB. Incorporating photodiode, transimpedance amplifier, and output stage onto one chip, the sensor provides a frequency output to increase precision under all lighting conditions while simultaneously simplifying the sensor interface.
Intended for applications where ground-loop noise is a concern, a family of rack-mounted signal conditioners provide galvanic isolation for each input to output with a choice of Integrated circuit piezoelectric sensor (ICP), multiple charge input sensitivities (0.1, 1, 10 mV/pC)
