Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX8893, a highly integrated microPMIC for multimedia application processors. This device includes one high-efficiency step-down converter, three low-noise LDOs, two low-supply-current LDOs, one low-on-resistance load switch, and one Hi-Speed USB switch-all in a 2.5mm x 3.0mm, 30-bump wafer-level package (WLP).
Last month, Sony essentially neutered the PlayStation 3 by removing its “Install Other OS” functionality. This precipitated a huge customer backlash (and, as of this writing, at least two class-action lawsuits), but there’s one foe Sony hadn’t anticipated—the United States Air Force.
Design engineers in defense, aerospace and other industries where low weight and superior electrical performance are key considerations have a new option, following PA&E’s release of its new aluminum Micro-D connector.
Electro Standards Laboratories (ESL), Cranston, RI, announces its new QuickSwitch Model 6293 Single Mode, LC Duplex Fiber Optic A/B/C Switch with Remote Serial Access. This sleek switch accesses any one of three separate fiber optic networks from one computer via pushbutton and remote ASCII control.
Design engineers are looking at new, low-cost, small and innovative sensing designs for their systems. Sensing applications typically require several analog and digital blocks, such as excitation circuits, an analog front end consisting of signal-conditioning and filtering circuitry...

Schurter’s ASO Series fuse and FSO Series fuseholder are designed to protect DC applications from the potentially devastating effects of low short circuits and overvoltage conditions in systems upwards of 1000 VDC. They are intended for
TDK-Lambda’s NVM175 Series of medically approved AC-DC power supplies combine 4.5 kVAC reinforced input to output isolation with dual input fusing and an output-to-ground isolation of 1500 VAC. They meet UL/EN/IEC60601-1 and are suitable for
Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX2991, the first fully integrated analog front-end (AFE) specifically designed for OFDM-based* signal transmission over power lines. Maxim's state-of-the-art solution provides superb performance for the challenging powerline-communication market, while reducing total AFE cost by more than 50% as compared to earlier discrete versions.
Hirose Electric Co. has developed a board mounting cable connector for extended durability and heavy duty service applications. Designated the 3800 Series, this rectangular I/O connector series was developed with a rugged, space-saving, low mass design ideal for use in hand-held and portable products including inventory management devices...
A lot has changed in the past 25 years. Technological feats thought to be impossible in the 1980s have been overcome, while other problems and challenges arose in their place. Changing design requirements, technology and applications are nothing new in the world of electronic components.
Microchip Technology introduces Nectar, who is the very first Industrial Design House to join Microchips Global Design Partner Network.
Drive time rant. Dave is sick of getting emails asking if the cheap toy DSO nano and FPGA/PIC/AVR oscilloscope kits are worth buying. Guess his response... answers by telepathy please.
A demonstration of Camero's Xaver 400 through-wall radar.
Quite often, technology starts at the high-end (military, expensive lab gear or enterprise) and then with time as volumes rise it becomes affordable and moves into the mass-market. Think of computers (the famous but perhaps apocryphal, Thomas Watson’s “there is a market for perhaps five computers” or Ken Olsen “Why would anyone want a computer at home?”
SyChip, Inc., a leader in Radio Frequency Chip Scale Modules (CSM) and a subsidiary of Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd., today announced the introduction of their SyNode Smart Energy Embedded Module.
