Endevco introduced a variable capacitance accelerometer featuring onboard, microprocessor-controlled temperature compensation. The model 7290D has high thermal stability and global accuracy for measurement of low-level accelerations in laboratory test and measurement, automotive, and aerospace applications including military and commercial flight testing. Gas damping and internal over-range stops are used by an anisotropically etched, silicon sensing
Two-Phase, Single-Chip Interleaving Power Factor Controller Increases Energy Performance and System ReliabilityDecember 7, 2007 6:21 am | Comments
Texas Instruments Incorporated introduced today a single-chip, interleaved power factor correction (PFC) control circuit for multi-kilowatt communications, server and industrial system. The UCC28070 two-phase, average current-mode controller allows designers to simplify power design, increase system reliability and achieve a greater than 0.9 power factor rating, which improves energy efficiency
Sullins Electronics expanded their edgecard connector portfolio to include a high-temperature, dual-readout series manufactured to accept 0.093” (2.36 mm) daughtercards. The cards are supplied in straight, card extender, and right angle configurations. Their UL/cUL connectors feature high-density 0.050” (1.27 mm) contact center spacing and replacable 0.100” (2.54 mm) center spacing parts to double the number of contacts within the same area.
Omega Engineering launched a battery powered, 3-axis shock recorder that measures temperature, pressure, and humidity at user-selected reading rates, while shock is recorded at the peak acceleration levels. The OM-CP-ULTRASHOCK101-50-EB is a compact device that can record up to 170,000 measurements per channel. This device is useful for documenting dynamic environments such as moving vehicles, trucks, containers, and ships.
STMicroelectronics announced a quad high-side intelligent power switch (IPS) - the VNI4140K - which is produced using the latest generation of the company's VIPowerT technology to achieve a 50 percent saving in Rds(on) compared to earlier devices with the same die size. In addition to over-temperature protection for safe operation when current draw is too high, the switch's case over-temperature protection independently limits the PCB temperature
Hagstrom Electronics Inc.'s KE-USB108 full speed USB keyboard encoder has 108 programmable inputs.
