Low pass, band pass, high pass or band stop circuits can be quickly implemented
Edmunds Optics introduced TECHSPEC Elliptical Plate Beamsplitters which are designed to maximize beamsplitting efficiency while minimizing valuable mounting space. When the beamsplitter is orientated at 45° in the optical path, it creates a circular aperture equal to the diameter of the minor axis. The beamsplitters are available in two thicknesses: 1.0 mm for ultra-tight spaces, or 3.0 mm with an improved surface accuracy of

Features include an isolation of 1,500V DC, remote on/off function and efficiency as high as 89 percent. The devices are Lead-free and RoHS compliant.
EPCOS announced B43305 and B43508 series snap-in aluminum electrolytic capacitors. The B43305 series covers the capacitance range from 68 µF to 3300 µF and is available for voltages between 200V and 450V. It has an operating life of 2000 hours at a temperature of 85°C. The product’s dimensions of between 22 mm × 5 mm and 35 mm × 55 mm puts EPCOS among the best-in-class manufacturers. The B43508 series covers the capacitance range from 82 µF to 2700 µF at voltages between 200V and 450V.
Sullins Electronics announced standard edgecard connectors engineered to accept daughtercards ranging in thickness of from 0.031” (0.79 mm) to 0.125” (3.18 mm). Supplied with contact centers of 0.100” (2.54 mm), 0.125” (3.18 mm), and 0.156” (3.96 mm), they are manufactured to meet or exceed the industry’s highest electrical and mechanical standards
RECOM has redesigned the RY-xxxxSCL/DCL series of DC/DC converters to comply with ROHS regulations. The series are regulated 1 Watt converters in a SIP 7 case. Compared with unregulated these converters show up a better output accuracy of ±2% and a by far better load regulation of ±0.5 % at a load change step from 10% to 100 %. The redesign features continuous short circuit protection without changing any other parameters of the specification
TT electronics BI Technologies Electronic Components Division developed a steering sensor based on its proven Magnetorque technology. The non-contacting steering sensor features dual phased outputs for reliable diagnostic characteristics. Magnetorque sensors are programmable for gain and offset. At the time of assembly, customers can program the gain and offset values, allowing for adjustments to the mechanical tolerances in their system. This allows customers to use looser system mechanical tolerance resulting in cost savings and a more accurate system.
FCI developed a 0.3 mm-pitch, low-profile FPC ZIF connector suitable for mobile phone, digital still and video cameras, and display applications. Designated the YLL Series, the connector is available in two versions -- the D-Series with down-side contacts and the U-Series with upper-side contacts. The YLL-D provides 0.3 mm spacing, 13 to 45 down-side contact positions, and a maximum height of 1.0 mm.
National Instruments announced LabVIEW 8.5, the latest version of the graphical system design platform for test, control and embedded system development. The latest version combines the familiar graphical programming environment with commercial multicore hardware to achieve performance gains. Additionally, it introduces the LabVIEW Statechart Module for higher-level designs to run on targets including FPGAs, real-time systems, PDAs, touch panels and a variety of microprocessors
MH&W International announced Keratherm 86/82, a high tensile strength, thermal interface material (TIM) that improves heat transfer from ICs and other components to their heat sinks, and provides durability for installation and long-term use. It is a thermally conductive, electrically isolating silicone film with a reinforcing fiberglass layer for tear and cut-through resistance. The silicone provides excellent wetting properties for filling interface surfaces.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the LTC3219, an inductorless, low noise, high efficiency LED driver for cell phone displays and lighting. The IC provides nine individually configurable current sources for Main, Sub and RGB displays. Display currents are set via a precision internal current reference. The universal current sources can be digitally controlled with independent dimming, brightness, blinking, and gradation control, programmable via a simple two-wire I2C serial interface
QP Semiconductor has completed a redesign of the Atmel’s discontinued ATV2500B family of high-speed CPLDs. The first offering is the BQ or quarter power version. The company also plans to introduce the remainder of the CPLD family (B, BL, and BQL) later this year. All devices will be QML certified on 5962-91545XX. Packaging is consistent with the original UV erasable devices: ceramic packages in 44-pin LLCC or JLCC and in a 40-pin DIP.
Cavium Networks introduced its OCTEON MIPS64 Multicore Storage Services Processor (SSP) family of products. The OCTEON SSP single chips combine storage processing with Cavium's networking, security and application acceleration processors to provide two to four times more compute cycles versus many alternatives, according to the company, and to integrate advanced hardware acceleration for RAID, compression, de-duplication, security and iSCSI.
Catalyst Semiconductor announced two additions to its low dropout (LDO) regulator product line. The CAT6217 and CAT6218 LDO regulators source 150 mA and 300 mA output currents, respectively, in a five-lead, 1 mm profile thin SOT-23 package. The regulators offer a low quiescent current combined with a low typical dropout voltage of 90mV at a 150 mA load for the CAT6217 and 180 mV at a 300 mA load for the CAT6218.
