Metal Finishes Protect Air Filter Performance

January 14, 2008 8:31 am | Comments

Universal Air Filter's metal finish help increase air filter performance in harsh environments. These chrome-free, RoHS-compliant finishes are applied to the filter’s metallic components – frames, Uni-grid support, brackets, and honeycomb, to prevent corrosion as required by military and defense applications in MIL-C-5541 Class 1A and/or Class 3 compliance. Clear and yellow chemical conversion coatings are also important for EMI shielding

High-Voltage, Single- and Dual-Supply SPDT Analog Switches with Low 3.6-Ohm On-Resistance

January 14, 2008 7:32 am | Comments

Vishay Intertechnology released two high-voltage, single- and dual-supply single-pole double-throw (SPDT) analog switches. The DG469 and DG470 devices are identical, except the DG470 provides an enable pin, which puts all of the switches in a high-impedance state, maintaining a “safe state” at power up and preventing accidental signal or power shorts. The new switches are

Non Contact Thermometer Sensor offers Narrow Field Of View

January 11, 2008 4:58 am | Comments

Melexis introduced the MLX90614xAC with narrow 35° field of view (FOV). Design engineers can now measure smaller objects or increase the sensor-object distance with this thermometer. The 35° FOV is obtained by adding a viewing angle limiting metal tube to the standard TO-39 housing of the MLX90614. By performing the calibration of the thermometer after this tube has been attached

Evaluation Kit Validates Connector Compatibility

January 10, 2008 9:16 am | Comments

ERNI Electronics's development kit for analysing the signal integrity of the MicroSpeed connector family features a contact density in 1 mm pitch, enabling board-to-board applications suited for the bandwidth requirements of modern applications. The kit consists of two PCBs, each with four MicroSpeed connectors, a guide, and detaching aids. At the rear of the boards are 30 high-end miniature coaxial connectors


Glass Encapsulated Thermistor Designed Without Variations

January 10, 2008 8:58 am | Comments

Measurement Specialties now offers a glass encapsulated thermistor, the 55000, but with pricing closer to epoxy-coated models by eliminating the variation normally involved in manual assembly. Features of the MEAS 55000 include .012°C shift at 100°C after 10 months, or ±0.10°C over temperature range from 0°C to 70°C; hermetic seal for moist environments; operating temperature range of -80°C to +200°C

PWM Digital Power Amplifier with 100W Per Channel

January 10, 2008 8:31 am | Stmicroelectronics | Comments

STMicroelectronics' latest digital power amplifier, the STA510F, can drive up to 100W per channel of audio into stereo 8-ohm loads. The device will also drive 4 x 50W into 4 ohms, or up to 200W in a mono configuration, using STM's proprietary full flexible amplification method of digital modulation. However, it still accepts signals from other drivers using any PWM modulation scheme such as ternary, phase shift, or binary.
