Exar has launched the XR2280x family of USB to Ethernet bridge ICs. The devices are said to offer an 'unprecedented' level of integration, combining a Hi-Speed USB 2.0 hub with up to four ports, controllers for 10/100 Ethernet, I2C, EDGE GPIO and up to four UARTs.

Transceivers achieve 20Mbit/s

Linear Technology has introduced the LTC2862-2865, a family of rugged, high voltage tolerant RS485/RS422 transceivers for elimination of field failures without the need of external protection devices.

6Gb/s SATA/SAS RAID controllers

Network semiconductor specialist, PMC-Sierra has announced what it claims to be the industry's first entry level true hardware 6Gb/s SATA/SAS RAID controllers with on board dram cache.

High speed data converters and IF diversity receivers

Analog Devices has launched four high speed data converter products designed to support signal sampling rates necessary to accommodate multi carrier radio platform requirements for 3G and 4G cellular infrastructure communication standards. These include CDMA2000, UMTS/LTE, TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE.

Avago expands optocoupler portfolio

Avago Technologies, a supplier of analogue interface components for communications, industrial and consumer applications, has announced a new generation of gate drive optocouplers that deliver 'industry leading' performance from a small footprint package.

Industrial switches with PoE capability

The Harting Ha-VIS 4000 series of industrial Ethernet switches has been extended to include Power over Ethernet capability (PoE), allowing devices such as cameras and wireless access points to be integrated quickly and easily into an industrial network.

Ultra compact IC logic couplers

Toshiba Electronics Europe has expanded its range of ultra compact IC logic couplers with four new devices designed to address requirements for high speed, electrically isolated digital interfacing in a variety of industrial, automation, home appliance and measurement applications.

SuperSpeed USB 3.0

Mouser Electronics has announced the availability of the USB 3.0 SuperSpeed connectors from Amphenol. The connectors are compliant with the USB 2.0 and 3.0 specification and offer a 'significant leap forward' in transfer speeds (5Gb/s signaling rate) and a 10 x performance increase over Hi-Speed USB capabilities, while maintaining backwards compatibility with USB 2.0 devices.

Arrow expands Embedded Platform Concept with series of new modules

Arrow Electronics has presented a series of new development modules based on the Arrow Embedded Platform Concept (EPC). Since its introduction in 2009, the distributor has expanded the concept with new hardware, software and engineering services to deliver system solutions for a range of potential industries.

Fast data throughput modules

Future Technology Devices International, FTDI, exhibited the multiport variants of its USB COM Plus range of communication modules at ESC UK, Farnborough.

Accelerating packet and optical metro convergence

Internet infrastructure semiconductor solution provider, PMC-Sierra has announced the PM5422 META 20G device, designed to enable carrier Ethernet switch and router (CESR) equipment to connect to emerging metro optical transport networks (ITU-T G.709 OTN).

Switches pass range of signals

The ISL54230 from Intersil has eight individual single pole double throw (SPDT) switches whose performance has been designed to enable them to pass a wide range of precision voice and data signals.

Quad RS422 transmitters are esd protected

A series of small footprint quad RS422 transmitters from Intersil are esd protected to 16.5kV. Their wide supply voltage operating range is said to suit them to motor control applications, process control networks, telecommunications products and factory automation systems.
