Larson Electronics’ Magnalight has introduced a powerful LED alternative for upgrading or replacing standard incandescent bulbs in applications requiring Par46 lamps. The LED40W-PAR46 provides as much or more light as most standard 100 watt Par46 lamps yet consumes only a fraction as much power.
Renesas Electronics America Inc. today announced the availability of its eight new 32-bit V850 microcontrollers (MCUs) in the existing V850 J Series. These new V850ES/Jx3-L MCUs are an extension of the successful low-power V850ES/Jx3-L 32-bit MCUs...
High brightness light emitting diodes (HBLEDs) combine high output and high efficiency with long lifetimes. Manufacturers are developing devices that offer higher luminous flux, longer lifetimes, greater chromaticity, and more lumens per Watt.
With the advent of newer technologies, chip technology is getting more and more complex. Nowadays, a large number of features are getting integrated in the same IC. And with increase in complexities of design it becomes highly important to test and debug...
The traditional role of logic analyzers in digital circuit and system debug and validation, including DDR memory systems, has been to find and fix problems, and the logic analyzer was often a tool of last resort. Previous generations of logic analyzers were considered difficult to use...
International Rectifier today introduced the AUIR3330S Intelligent Power Switch (IPS) with a proprietary active di/dt control feature that significantly reduces conducted EMI and switching losses to simplify design and reduce overall system cost in automotive motor drive applications.
Microchip Technology Inc. today announced the latest additions to its Enhanced Mid-Range core 8-bit PIC microcontroller (MCU) family—the peripheral-rich, low pin count PIC12F(LF)1840 and PIC16F(LF)1847. Featuring 7 KB and 14 KB of on-chip Flash memory...
Microsemi Corporation today announced that it is working with Ariane Controls, a powerline communications developer, to provide FPGA technology for the industry's first development platform to support key emerging electric-vehicle charging and related Smart Grid standards.
Voltage dividers that divide by 10, or 100, or 1,000 are tough with standard resistors. The numbers do not come out exactly with standard resistors. By adding one resistor to the divider it is possible to get the division ratio exact (not counting resistor tolerances).
OSD Displays offers a new 8.0” SVGA that features a high-bright LED backlight, up to 1300 nits (cd/m2) for industrial and medical applications (OSD080T0719-29). The 8.0” 800 x 600 color TFT features an LVDS interface and is
Microchip Technology and Digilent launched the first 32-bit-microcontroller-based, open-source development platform that is compatible with Arduino hardware and software.
Antenna Factor introduced its OC Series 1/2-wave dipole antenna, which is asserted to deliver higher gain than a standard whip antenna, increasing the range and reliability of wireless links. Using loaded coil technology, the antenna
Peregrine Semiconductor announced availability of the RoHS-compliant PE42551 50-Ohm RF Switch for high-performance broadband RF applications such as automated test equipment (ATE), related test and measurement applications, and
Alix Paultre interviews Microchip's John Haroian, Senior FAE, at ESC San Jose. The two discuss Microchip's TCP/IP Protocol Solutions.
Radicom Research announced the release of its WiFiHU Series of USB WiFi modem modules. Using these modules, WiFi connectivity can be added to virtually any processor-based device. They support
Dontech, Inc. has developed IMO-bond, a proprietary process of applying rigid optical filters (e.g., contrast enhancing, EMI/RFI shielding, or Therma Klear transparent heaters) to electronic displays via a refractive index matched optical (IMO) bonding process. IMO-bond includes
