Operating at bandwidths from 60 MHz to 200 MHz, Agilent DSO1000A Series oscilloscopes can display 23 automatic measurements – up to 21 simultaneously – including measurements from a built-in six-digit counter.
The IMEC nanoelectronics research institute has developed a method to integrate high-speed CMOS electronics and nanophotonic circuitry based on plasmonic effects.
Engineered to accept 0.062” (1.58-mm) thick daughtercards, RDPS card edge connectors from Sullins Connector Solutions have a double-contact-point pin design as well as an operating temperature from -65°C to +150°C.
Cobham Technical Services is releasing a new version of its Vector Fields Software tool for designing rotating electrical machinery. The electromagnetic simulation software combines the accuracy of virtual prototyping using finite-element analysis with a rapid front-end design tool that allows users to create models of motors and generators in minutes.
The Altivar 12 variable-speed AC drive from Schneider Electric offers nearly 150 application-specific advanced motor-control functions.
Mechatronics is a relatively new field of complex systems design that encompasses the disciplines of Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Computer Engineering.
Texas Instruments announced its TMS320F2803x Piccolo microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring the Control Law Accelerator (CLA). Unique to TI’s F2803x Piccolo MCUs, the CLA is a60 MHz, 32-bit floating-point math accelerator that operates independently of the 60 MHz C28x core, allowing for direct access to on-chip peripherals and
Design tools insert debug logic into FPGAs so engineers can focus on design problems and not on debugging the debugger.
There are always things to consider when prototyping a design. Here are a few essays on the subject to aid you in your efforts.
With hardened-steel helical and spur gearing in ratios from 108:1 to 266:1, the VWDIR104 AC gearmotor family offers fixed output speeds from 15 to 6 RPM with continuous torque ratings from 340 to 500 in-lbs (38.4 to 56.5 N-m). Features include built-in face mounting compatible with Genesis mounts and an overhung load capability up to 400 lbs. (181.8 kg.).
Provided in a 19" rackmount server chassis, the RTS 2701 Recording and Playback System from Pentek includes a Dual-channel multiband transceiver. The system is well suited for digitizing analog signals from a communications system or a radar system and delivering that data to high-speed disk arrays at sustained data rates as high as 500 MB/second.
Designed to provide mission-critical wireless communications, the Proxicast’s new Cell-PAK 3G + Wi-Fi HotSpot in a box is a wireless "grab & go" solution that provides mobile wide-area cellular Internet connectivity (WWAN) and local 802.11 a/b/g Wi-Fi access (WLAN) in an easy-to-deploy portable form-factor. The Cell-Pak features Proxicast’s commercial-grade LAN-Cell 2 mobile 3G cellular router.
Designated the 5802 Series, a 0.4-mm-pitch board-to-board connectors from AVX is presented as the smallest available, with a 0.8-mm stacking height and 3.2-mm width, including tails.
Available in a variety of packaging including TO-220, D2PAK, TO-262, and 7-lead D2PAK, logic-level gate-drive trench HEXFET power MOSFETs from International Rectifier have a package current rating of up to 195 A.
Designed for applications with high-power inductive loads, Allegro’s A4940 full-bridge MOSFET pre-driver IC incorporates fault diagnostics and reporting functionality. With an operating voltage from 5.5 V to 50.0 V, the 24-pin TSSOP-packaged device has a bootstrap charge management system that ensures the bootstrap capacitor is always sufficiently charged to supply the high-side gate drive circuit.
