Presented as the only commercially available chip of its kind, the IDS-SL13A smart active label chip from IDS Microchip can automatically track, monitor, time-stamp, and record information about any tagged goods in any supply chain or cold chain transport. By tracking unseen changes such as extreme temperatures
Intended to replace wire-wrap posts and turret terminals, a family of test points are available in 10 colors for use on 0.062 and 0.093 PCBs. Made of phosphor bronze with silver plating, the points are designed to keep onboard terminals perpendicular to the PCB and are available in 0.010" diameter miniature versions and 0.015" compact and multi-purpose versions.
Optically clear with a mixed viscosity of 400 cps, the EP29LPSP epoxy adhesive/sealant for cryogenic applications from Master Bond can withstand temperatures as low as 4K as well as cryogenic shocks (i.e. room temperature down to liquid helium temperatures in a 5-10 minute time period). With a mix ratio of 100 to 65 by weight, the epoxy cures at room temperatures
Providing a high contact density in a rugged metal shell, the KPTC backshell connector from ITT Interconnect Solutions has an IP67 sealing rating and gold plated contacts to allow the connector to withstand harsh environments. The bayonet-mount connector is available with a shielded endbell and comes in configurations with size 16 or 20 contacts with a lifetime of at least 500 mating cycles.
Designed for stepper and servo motors with shaft sizes from 2 to 5 mm in packaging machines and other industrial and factory automation applications, the AEDx-8xxx encoder series of three-channel optical incremental encoders includes a codewheel, LED light source, and detector IC.
Optimized to meet new automotive industry requirements for temperature and humidity, the Vishay Beyschlag ACAS 0612 AT resistor array offers defined tolerance matching down to 0.1% (equivalent to ±0.05%) and TCR tracking down to 10 ppm/K (equivalent to ±5ppm/K), making it well-suited for
Addressing the high level of interest in solid-state lighting, TPS62260LED LED develoipment board from Texas Inatruments enables lighting designers to develop and evaluate a variable-color RGB-LED lighting system using an RF lighting control for management of lighting intensity and color. The board combines three OSRAM high-brightness LEDs (red, green and blue) with an MSP430F2131 microcontroller
International Rectifier expanded its portfolio of 60V, 75V and 100V MOSFETs for switch mode power supplies (SMPS), uninterruptible power supplies (UPS) and industrial applications such as power tools, forklifts and other high power DC drives. These new N-channel MOSFETs feature
Allegro MicroSystems introduced an ultra sensitive, Hall-effect switch with latched digital outputs and omnipolar magnetic actuation. It features operation at low supply currents and voltages, making it appropriate for battery operated electronics. The low operating supply voltage, 1.65V to 3.5V, and unique
Targeting battery-powered applications such as remote sensors, the LTC2451 and LTC2452 from Linear Technology are a pair of 16-bit delta sigma ADCs have a 0.5µA (max) shutdown current to extend system operating life. For example, the devices dissipate just 40 µW from a 3-V supply when sampling once per second. With a dynamic input current of less than 50 nA, the 3 x 2-mm 8-pin DFN-packaged devices
Sullins Connector Solutions expanded its 1.00 mm edgecard connector offering to include a full series of PCI Express (PCIe) parts. Designed to conform to PCI-SIG specifications, the devices enable user upgrades and bandwidth support to implement PCIe technology for desktop PCs and server systems. Featuring
ITT Interconnect Solutions has developed a corrosion resistant variation of its D-subminiature connectors. The stainless steel D-sub shells meet stringent requirements for corrosion resistance under MIL-Spec "P" grade stainless steel, while also meeting JEDEC standards for RoHS compliance. The shells are
Future Technology Devices International Limited (FTDI) announced availability of its USB NMC-2.5m USB to USB Null modem cable. Using an approach that was established using legacy RS-232 serial COM ports when the PC industry was in its infancy, the USB NMC-2.5m offers a
