Senators said Thursday they will move cautiously on a new military command to tackle cyberthreats, citing questions about how the U.S. would conduct electronic warfare. The U.S. hasn't fully developed policies on how to respond to cyberattacks that are routed through neutral countries or the computers of innocent Americans...
VPT, Inc. announced that several new modules are available for the DVFL, DVTR, and DVHF Series DC-DC power converter product lines. The new output voltages on these modules satisfy the reliability requirements and varying output voltage needs of the newest avionics and military electronics.
NKK Switches announced the availability of the SK Series of miniature panel mount keylock switches. Offered in either a two- or three-tumbler configuration, SK Series switches are appropriate for designs requiring
For years, Apple rejected iPhone apps for “duplicate functionality.” Thus, well-reviewed apps like MailWrangler (which duplicated the iPhone’s built-in mail app) and Podcaster (which duplicated iTunes’ podcast functionality) were forthwith denied. Surprisingly, Apple recently approved a slew of browser apps.
MEN Micro offers a 6U FPGA-based, triple-redundant D602 cPCI SBC that uses a lock-step architecture to make the board appropriate for highly mission-critical applications. The lock-step architecture provides a redundant computing system that

TDK-Lambda has unveiled its latest addition to its line of AC-DC medical and ITE (Information Technology Equipment) power supplies. The new single-output CSS150 100-W to150-W supplies accept a wide AC input range, have a low profile of 1.3” and a footprint of 3” x 5”, making them suitable for
Skyworks’ ATN3590 family of fixed resistive attenuators are integrated circuits comprising thin film resistors and through-die vias that provide desirable attenuation flatness from low frequency to 40 GHz or higher. These attenuators are
Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com unveiled the HML-5M-LED40, a handheld LED spotlight with magnetic base that produces 3600 lumens and draws less than 2 amps on 24 volts. The LED spotlight contains the Magnalight PAR46 40 Watt LED retrofit lamp.
Crystek's CVCO55CC-2620-2710 VCO (voltage controlled oscillator) operates from 2620 MHz to 2710 MHz with a control voltage range of 0.5 V to 4.5 V. This VCO features a
TDK-EPC introduced what it asserts is the world’s first thin-film common mode filter (TCE1210 from TDK) with both high-speed differential transmission common mode noise suppression and ESD protection in a single component.
Analog Devices unveiled the newest additions to its SHARC portfolio of 32-bit floating point digital signal processors – the SHARC 2148x and SHARC 2147x Series. With up to 5 Mb of integrated memory, these processors are said to extend single-chip, floating point signal processing precision to
The arrival of the iPhone on June 29, 2007 did not just win Apple an overwhelming presence in the personal gadget world, but also changed consumers’ perception of human machine interface forever. The user-driven human touch sensing design is not just intimate with its customers; it is loved.
The fundamental purpose of a bus bar, like a wire or cable, is to connect two or more points of a circuit. However, bus bars offer many other advantages over conventional cables.
This month's question, “What needs to be done for digital power technology to become more accessible to the industry, especially for smaller companies?”, was ansered by Mark Adams of CUI, Chris Young of Intersil, and Rick Zarr of National Semiconductor.
National Semiconductor announced a configurable I/O chip for serial digital interface (SDI) broadcast video equipment. This I/O chip allows manufacturers to program their BNC interface connectors as either inputs (equalizer) or outputs
Bison Gear introduced its 100 mm AC motor line. The line is presented as offering 1/8 hp (93 W) in 30 percent less volume than previously available. The new 4" diameter single phase motors have now been mated to the company’s
