Murata’s safety standard capacitors are X and Y rated for arduous mains duties

Murata has announced that it is expanding its rated voltage lineup with the introduction of a series of safety standard certified ceramic capacitors including X1, Y1 and Y2 types.

The AC400V and AC500V rated capacitors have high impulse tolerance and are suitable for use in large-scale equipment where high reliability is needed, such as solar cell generating systems and fully automatic machinery. Murata is also releasing a group of capacitors with AC250V and ...

Wideband signal analysis solution

The RSA7100A wideband signal analysis solution from Tektronix can store up to two hours of data from an 800MHz bandwidth feed. Covering frequencies ranging from 16kHz to 26.5GHz, the device is said to address a broad range of analysis needs.

Nanopower op amps maximise battery and sensor life

Texas Instruments (TI) claims to have introduced the first precision nanopower operational amplifiers. With up to 60% lower power consumption than competitive precision op amps and offset voltage as low as 300µV, the family of op amps extends battery and sensor life for applications such as building automation, wired and wireless sensor nodes, and wearables.

Plastic packaged PIN diode control devices

A series of plastic packaged PIN diode control products has been launched by Microsemi. The devices are said to be cost effective and to provide higher RF functionality, enabling defence, aerospace and medical customers to drive down BOM costs with low risk and little sacrifice to performance.

Plessey extends beam-forming LED module family

Plessey has added to its range of ultra-slim Orion LED modules based on its Stellar beam forming technology, with new beam angles opening the technology up to a wider range of applications in both industrial and architectural lighting design.

Arduino shield for easier stepper motor driver designs

The Arduino-based evaluation kit (EVK) is said to supports the evaluation of ROHM Semiconductor’s motor driver devices and enables, facilitates and accelerates customers’ developments. Designed as a ‘shield’ to plug directly into the Arduino main board, the EVK integrates a HTSSOP-B28 packaged stepper motor drive IC and complements the company’s rapid prototyping ecosystem.

Step down regulator delivers 93% efficiency

Linear Technology has announced the LT8630 – a 600mA synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its 3 to 100V input voltage range is claimed to make it suitable for 48V automotive systems, dual battery transportation, industrial and 36 to 72V telecom applications.

µModule regulator scalable to 180A

Linear Technology introduces the LTM4647, a 30A step-down µModule regulator. The LTM4647 includes the inductor, MOSFET, DC/DC controller and supporting components in a 9 x 15 x 5.01mm BGA package.

Open frame AC/DC power supplies for space constrained apps

CUI has announced a family of compact AC/DC power supplies in an open frame SIP package. The 3W and 5W configurations of the PBO series measure 35 x 11 x 18mm and the 3W models are also available in low-profile, right-angle versions measuring 35 x 18 x 11mm, making them suitable for applications with little vertical board space.
