Constant-Current LED Driver Allows Multiple Devices to Be Cascaded and Programmed Via One Serial InterfaceJanuary 21, 2008 5:13 am | Comments
Catalyst Semiconductor, Inc. has expanded its recently introduced family of large LED video display drivers with the CAT4008, an 8-channel, constant-current sink LED driver for billboard, marquee, instrument and other large, general-purpose LED displays. The device’s LED channels can operate with an output voltage on the LED pins as low as 0.4V (for 2mA to 100mA LED current), to enable more power-efficient designs.
Dytran Instruments Inc. introduced an ultra miniature IEPE accelerometer which is laser welded in a titanium housing. Weighing in at just 0.2 grams, this miniature accelerometer successfully reduces mass loading effects. Because of its tiny “teardrop” design, the 3224A2 is suitable for vibration measurements in small locations. The model 3224A2 is available with a sensitivity of 2mV/g and can operate at temperatures up to 300°F.
