A bad weather front is fast approaching and a cloudburst is imminent. If you happen to be away from home, but have left a window open, either deliberately or because you forgot to check one room, you may be in for a wet surprise when you come home.
The PLXO-100-XA from EM Research is a phase-locked crystal oscillator operating at 100 MHz and features an internal reference-detect switch. When no reference is connected to the device, the reference detect switch automatically engages a 10 MHz internal TCXO, providing uninterrupted use of the PLXO-100.
The CLX-1020-XA Phase-Locked Oscillator from EM Research operates at 1020 MHz and features exceptionally-low phase noise (<-109 dBc/Hz @ 10 KHz). The unit is locked to an internal reference and offers +7 dBm output power with low power consumption (+5 VDC @ <65 mA) and low spurs (<-80 dBc).
GreenPeak Technologies today announced the launch of the new GP710, a dual-protocol ZigBee communications controller with simultaneous support for ZigBee RF4CE and ZigBee IP/ZigBee PRO protocols. The GP710 communication controller is targeted for set-top boxes, gateways and Smart Home controllers and designed for supporting simultaneously ZigBee RF4CE applications – such as remote controls...
Cypress Semiconductor today announced that Lite-On Technology Corporation has selected Cypress’s 2.4-GHz WirelessUSB-NL radio-on-a-chip for its next-generation wireless keyboard and mouse set. WirelessUSB-NL’s low power consumption enables two AA batteries to power the mouse and keyboard for up to three years.
Digital content consumption is on a steep rise – witness the mass adoption of multiple connected devices such as smartphones, tablets and laptops. This surge and the increased reliance on wireless networks –not to mention the growth of video content, which is expected to reach more than 86 percent of global consumer traffic by 2016 according to the Cisco Visual Networking Index...
Let's face it: Robots are better than people.They’re more dependable than humans (i.e. no sick days), they’re usually cheaper, and they don’t complain. The downside is pretty obvious as well, at least with the primitive robots we have today:
Driven by increased demand from developed regions for high-end models, along with an unexpectedly strong push from emerging economies for lower-cost products, smartphones are expected to rise to account for the majority of global cellphone shipments in 2013 — two years earlier than previously predicted.

Milford, CT – EAO Corporation of Milford, CT USA, a premier global supplier of Human Machine Interface (HMI) Systems and Components, introduces the Series 51 Stop Switch. These units are ideal for space sensitive applications often found within:
If you’ve been dying to run your business empire without ever leaving your shower, but hadn’t found a good way to do that, you should probably check out Fei Chung Billy Ho’s ‘Le Terme.’
It is no surprise that industries around the world are moving toward the implementation of wireless sensor networks which, contrary to their wired counterparts, are readily deployed with minimal effort while providing clear advantages in cost, size, power, mobility and flexibility. The cost and hassle of installing and maintaining wired systems has prompted many industries to embrace wireless sensors...
How many of us have seen cars swerving on the road because the driver is on the phone or texting? The reality is that more drivers are using mobile devices in cars and more electronics are being designed into new cars, such as smart phones, infotainment systems with large tablet-like displays, and various inputs/warning systems resulting in information overload. These gadgets dramatically
Peregrine Semiconductor announced the availability of the SPDT PE42421 RF switch, which is available in a miniature, six-lead SC-70 package. With its small package size, ESD performance of 2 kV on the RFC port, low voltage support down to 1.8V VDD, and low power consumption of
I’m inundated with thoughts about light bulbs. That is to say, I think about light bulbs an inordinate amount of time.When you work with emerging technology, light bulbs are kind of a big deal. Whether it’s LEDs versus incandescent bulbs, how different bulbs affect the environment, how expensive versus how efficient, the perfect wattage for my new lamp or the environmentalists versus the homeowners...
SenarioTek today announced the FlexMatrix reconfigurable RF switch matrix series, which delivers off-the-shelf performance up to 40 GHz. With FlexMatrix, test engineers can easily adjust, modify or expand their RF switching capability for applications such as radar, military communications and consumer wireless.
TDK Corporation has developed a new thin-film common-mode filter with a peak cutoff frequency of 10 GHz, enabling it to efficiently reduce high frequency noise emissions, especially in the 5-GHz band. The high cutoff frequency of the TCM0806T-060-2P filter ensures that
Vicor Corp. introduced the Westcor MicroPAC power factor corrected AC/DC power system providing up to 1300 W of continuous power at up to 92 percent efficiency and 25 W/in3 power density in a 4 x 1.72 x 7.45 inch package. Offering semi-regulated output voltages of

Many large facilities, campuses, warehouses and industrial organizations face a challenge. How do you efficiently install and manage a sensor and/or switch network distributed across a large area? How can you manage and control the troubleshooting and maintenance costs and time involved? How do you handle retrofits and changes to the network without extensive downtime and expense?
Four years ago, then-Sen. Barack Obama got a head start on Arizona Sen. John McCain when it came to reaching voters online, on their mobile phones and on social media. Young voters, the group most likely to tune in digitally to the presidential campaign, broke overwhelmingly for Obama, giving him the biggest margin of victory among that age group ever recorded.
