First air quality sensor to distinguish PM2.5, pollen and dust

Mitsubishi Electric has developed a small, high-precision air-quality sensor, claimed to be the first in the world to detect fine particles measuring no more than 2.5µm in diameter, called PM2.5, as well as pollen and dust. It also senses the density of particles precisely.

Scattered light from PM2.5 particles is measured with a double-sided mirror design, which is said to collect about 1.8 times more scattered light than conventional single-sided designs. ...

Small power supply with low no-load power consumption

Ecopac Power has released the EPS-65S, a range of 65W industrial power supplies mounted on miniature PCBs that measure 76.2 x 50.8 x 24mm. The environmentally friendly units are claimed to feature efficiencies of up to 91% and a no-load power consumption of less than 0.1W.

Industry’s first PMICs for smart TVs and set-top boxes

Dialog Semiconductor has released a range highly integrated PMICs for smart TVs and set-top-boxes. The advent of media streaming services has also created new products such as video streaming sticks and personal media boxes in which the PMICs could also be used.

REM Switch chip and RapID Platform support ModbusTCP

Innovasic has updated its fido5000 Real-time Ethernet, Multi-protocol (REM) Switch chip and the RapID Platform Network Interface solution to support ModbusTCP. The fido5000 REM Switch chip is configured via software driver as a ModbusTCP device and is claimed to support cycle times less than 500µs.The RapID Platform – ModbusTCP Network Interface is delivered as a module or embedded design that supports cycle times down to 1ms.

Accurate real-time power monitoring of multiple loads

Microchip has added the MCP39F511N to its power-monitoring IC portfolio. The device is said to be capable of providing standard power calculations and event monitoring of two electrical loads, this integrated, accurate device helps system designers to reduce system cost of power-monitoring wall outlets and smart plugs, power strips, AC/DC power supplies and power distribution applications. The device features three Analogue-to-Digital Convertors (ADCs) for voltage and two current-load measurements, a 16-bit calculation engine, EEPROM and a flexible 2-wire interface.

Set top box tester gives greater control

RedRat is launching the latest version of its set top box testing and control product, the irNetBox. The device is designed to give set top box manufacturers greater control over stress testing processes and simplify installation and use.

Development boards reinforce support for 32-bit MCUs

STMicroelectronics has extended its support for the STM32 range of 32-bit Flash microcontrollers (MCUs) with the introduction of the STM32 Nucleo-144 series of low-cost, compact development boards. These boards offer increased connectivity that enables customers to develop applications using any STM32 MCUs.

6U VME board features i7 processor

A 6U VME single board computer based on the 4th Generation Intel Core™ i7 processor has been announced by Acromag. Called the XVME-6510, the board features Intel 8-Series QM87 PCH chipset, two ruggedised SODIMMs with up to 16Gbyte of DDR3L removable memory and 32Gbyte of flash.

Industry-leading power density, performance and reliability

Altera has expanded its Enpirion power products portfolio with a 6A PowerSoC DC-DC step-down converter that is claimed to be a full-featured, highly integrated, and fully tested PowerSoC with integrated inductor. The PowerSoC (EN6362QI) is said to be the first in a new generation of low-VIN power products that offer industry-leading power density while improving performance in the areas of conversion efficiency, output voltage accuracy, load transient response, and output voltage ripple.

High performance MCUs

STMicroelectronics’ STM32F767/769 microcontrollers (MCUs) bring ARM Cortex-M7 processing power and efficiency to applications such as portable or wearable consumer devices, smart-building and industrial controllers, smart appliances, and personal or point-of-care medical equipment.

100V MOSFET H-bridge reduces board space

The DMHC10H170SFJ introduced by Diodes Incorporated is a 100V full H-bridge incorporating dual N-channel and P-channel MOSFETs into a 5 x 4.5mm DFN5045 package. This configuration reduces component count and board space, which is especially important in applications that require multiple devices, such as the array of ultrasonic transducers used for industrial inspection systems or found in marine sonar equipment. Other common applications include driving DC motors in 48V telecom fans and other inductive loads such as the coils in wireless charging pads.
