'Most accurate' power analyser added to portfolio

Yokogawa has added the WT3000E to its power analysis family and claims the device is the most accurate and stable such product currently available.

The specified 45 to 65Hz accuracy for the WT3000E is 0.01% of reading plus 0.03% of range. These accuracy levels are said to be important when testing devices such as solar inverters, which are already working at overall efficiencies of up to 96%. Increasing efficiency further is challenging the WT3000E is said to ...

Stackable FPGA solution

The EMC2-7A board, from Sundance, can be used with commercial, industrial or automotive graded Artix-7 FPGAs and features 1Gbyte of DDR3 local storage, 32Mbyte of flash for storage/configurations and has 68x free differential I/O pins routed to a VITA57.1 FMC-LPC high-speed connector.

Simplifying LED lighting control with triac and quadrac design

Designing an AC circuit for controlling LED light output is said to be simple when using triac designs, such as the Littelfuse Q6008LH1LED or Q6012LH1LED Series, because the only components required are a firing/triggering capacitor, a potentiometer, and a voltage breakover triggering device.

1W DC/DC converter is 34% smaller

Murata has announced the MTC1 series of 1W regulated single output DC/DC converters. Murata claims the MTC1 Series occupies 34% less PCB area that competing parts and can operate up to 105°C.

DC gate driver reduces board space by 40%

Texas Instruments has introduced an integrated gate driver that offers adjustable gate drive settings with the flexibility to drive a range of external FETs, supporting multiple motors, speeds or varying loads. The DRV8701 enables designers to scale their platforms using a single gate driver across various brushed DC motor models in equipment such as white goods, household appliances, robotics, home automation, power tools, and industrial pumps and valves.

Simplifying PCI Express clock creation

IDT has announced the expansion of its VersaClock 5 family of programmable clock generators with devices that are said to simplify the creation of PCI Express clocks for a design. The 5P49V5907 and 5P49V5908 feature dedicated low-power HCSL outputs that reduce board space and bill of materials by providing an integrated clock generation and distribution solution for PCIe designs.

Progressive IoT Computing with RISC Technology

Advantech has released the UBC-220, a compact, high capability, connective indoor computing gateway device. It is equipped with a Freescale ARM Cortex-A9 i.MX6 Dual Lite 1GHz processor, with 1Gbyte of onboard memory, and 4Gbyte of eMMC flash memory storage. Featuring dual display support for 1080P HDMI and single-channel LVDS, UBC-220 is suited for HMI and digital signage.

Fast switching low leakage diodes

Diodes Incorporated has introduced the DLLFSD01x series of switching diodes, aimed at designers who require ultra-low leakage and super-fast switching speeds. The diodes are suited for used in LCD displays, portable electronics and numerous computer and consumer products. These devices are particularly applicable to systems that require high power efficiency and low switching loss.

Power efficient MCUs

Renesas has announced the RX231 series of 32-bit MCUs, which is claimed to offer designers a combination of high performance and low power consumption, with digital signal processing and access to a floating point unit.

Quick charge and discharge supercapacitors

Jamicon has introduced the DA series of supercapacitors, available in the UK from specialist components distributor Components Bureau. Bridging the gap between capacitors and batteries, these electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs) are suitable for quick charge and discharge applications.

AC/DC supply provides 95% efficiency

XP Power has announced the EPL225 series of efficient, open frame AC/DC power supplies suited for industrial, IT and medical applications. The series comprises seven single-output models that offer a range of standard output voltages from 12 to 48V DC with an output power of 225W.

Pool production of Flexible PCBs

Beta LAYOUT has introduced a manufacturing service which offers the production of prototype Flexible PCBs using the PCB-POOL method. Numerous different PCB designs are combined and orders are manufactured together, which is said to help reduce the overall cost and eliminate expensive tooling charges.

SSDs deliver leading edge performance and reliability

Swissbit has announced the launch of its next generation X-60m Series mSATA solid state drive (SSD). Compliant with the latest SATA III interface specification, the drives are said to deliver leading edge performance and reliability to industrial, network and communication and automotive applications.

SensorTag development kit connects sensors to the Cloud in minutes

Mouser is stocking the CC2650STK SimpleLink multi-standard SensorTag development kit from Texas Instruments (TI). The SensorTag is equipped with a SimpleLink CC2650 ultra-low power wireless microcontroller, featuring a 48MHz ARM Cortex-M3 core paired with a 2.4GHz RF transceiver compatible with Bluetooth Smart, ZigBee, 6LoWPAN and other IEEE 802.15.4 protocols.

IC for electronic throttle control

Toshiba has launched the TB9051FTG; a motor driver IC for DC brushed motors. While primarily targeted at vehicle engine applications, such as electronic throttle and valve control, it is also suitable for control of on-board systems operating at up to 5A, such as control of wing mirrors and locks for car boots.
