Industry’s most integrated Bluetooth smart module

Cypress Semiconductor has introduced a Bluetooth Smart module that it claims is the market’s first Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE) solution to integrate programmable analogue and digital blocks in a fully-certified module. The small-form-factor EZ-BLE PSoC module includes Bluetooth 4.1 qualification and worldwide regulatory certification.

Based on Cypress’s PSoC 4 BLE Programmable SoC with an ARM Cortex-M0 core, the EZ-BLE PSoC module integrates all of the building ...

LDO regulators for sensitive loads

Intersil has unveiled two new high performance, single output low-dropout (LDO) voltage regulators that provide enhanced dropout and transient performance for noise sensitive loads.

Ultra-low-jitter clock generators

Texas Instruments (TI) has introduced the LMK033x8 range of clock generators that is said to provide ultra-low jitter of 100fs and flexible pin control options. Compared to conventional reference clock solutions, the LMK033x8’s jitter performance is claimed to enable system designers to optimise system timing margins and bit error rate to reduce data transmission errors. This allows for more reliable communications, networking, server, computing, and high-performance industrial equipment.

Vandal-resistant thick touchscreen glass

Varitronix has announced an enhancement to its range of High-Resolution Touch Panel TFT Displays. The development includes the addition of a Cover Lens with glass thickness up to 15mm through which the Capacitive Touch Screen can still be operated.

Smallest Bluetooth 4.1 LE module?

TDK has developed what it says is the world’s smallest Bluetooth 4.1 LE module. Measuring 3.5 x 3.5 x 1mm, the module has an integrated DC/DC converter, operates from a 3V supply and consumes 5mA when transmitting, dropping to 0.8µA in standby mode.

Dual channel RF transceiver for sub GHz applications

Melexis has introduced the MLX73290-M, a multichannel RF transceiver that works in the ISM bands from 300MHz to 960MHz. With two RF channels, each with a programmable RF power transmitter and a highly sensitive RF receiver, the device can be programmed via its serial peripheral interface.

Latest MULTI IDE for Linux debugging software released

Green Hills Software has announced the latest release of its MULTI Integrated Development Environment for Linux. With this release, Green Hills Software continues to evolve its software development suite with features designed to increase developer productivity and speed time-to-market.

Ultra-low power 16-bit flash MCU from Epson

Seiko Epson Corporation (Epson) has announced that it has developed and begun shipping samples of S1C17W18, a 16-bit flash microcontroller (MCU) from its S1C17W00 series. The MCU is said to operate at 1.2V and is capable of driving 352 segment displays while achieving 40% less current consumption in operating mode than previous 16-bit MCUs from the S1C17W00 series.

Simplifying access to millions of power supply combinations

Artesyn Embedded Technologies has announced the ConfigPro, an online power supply configurator to help designers find the optimal solution from over three million combinations enabled by its range of configurable power supplies. It is claimed the ConfigPro will make it easier for industrial and medical equipment designers to specify and use configurable power supplies.

Converter with integrated coulomb counter consumes 680na quiescent current

Linear Technology has announced the LTC3335, a nanopower high efficiency synchronous buck-boost converter with an onboard precision coulomb counter. It is said to deliver up to 50mA of continuous output current with 680nA of quiescent current and programmable peak input currents from 5 to 250mA, the device is suited for a variety of low power battery applications.

Development system supports STM32L4 MCUs

A new development ecosystem has been introduced by STMicroelectronics to support the STM32L4 series of MCUs. According to the company, the offering includes prototype boards for all budgets and STM32Cube software support.

Additional output voltages extend power module series

TDK has announced an extension to its PH-A280 series of high voltage input DC/DC converters. Capable of operating from 200 to 425Vdc, the 3.3, 15 and 28V output power modules are suitable for use in data centres, telecommunications and renewable energy applications utilising a 380V nominal high voltage DC bus.
