Ultra-low-jitter family of LVCMOS clock buffers

Integrated Device Technology has unveiled a new family of clock buffers. The 5PB11xx family of LVCMOS fan-out buffers is able to provide low-jitter metrics of sub-50 fsec RMS additive phase jitter (12KHz to 20MHz), as a result it is able to offer system designers greater jitter margin to help meet system clock requirements. The small die size enables the chip to fit within a DFN 8-pin package as small as 2 by 2 millimeters.

42-inch multi-touch display with full HD resolution

Display Solutions has extended its DisplayTouch line with the introduction of a 42-inch multi-touch display. Allowing up to 10 touch points at one time, these new displays integrate Planar Scatter Detection (PSD) technology that can work with gloved hands. Suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications, within the correct enclosure, the DT-S42FD can be used in gaming, information, retail and educational applications requiring up to 10 point touch.

Toshiba launches ultra-small 13 megapixel CMOS image sensor

Toshiba Electronics Europe has launched the T4KB3, a 13-megapixel backside illumination (BSI) CMOS image sensor with an optical format of 1/3.07 inch. Capable of video capture at up to 120fps with full 1080p HD, the image sensor has been designed for use in high end smartphones and tablets.

DC/DC converters feature non linear adaptive control

The iEH series of 300W 1/8th brick DC/DC converters from TDK-Lambda are said to use digital non linear adaptive control to improve dynamic response, system stability and reliability. This, says the company, makes the devices suitable for demanding applications, including communications and test and broadcast.

New digital controllers come with programmability and digital features

Powervation has introduced a new series of digital DC/DC controllers for gaming & high-performance motherboards, embedded computing, networking, and telecom applications. The PV3203 & PV3205 digital dual-phase controllers offer fast transient response and a number of new features intended to improve power supply and system performance, while reducing overall bill of material component cost.

EnOcean adds data encryption to wireless sensors portfolio

Energy harvesting wireless technology specialist, EnOcean, has added encrypted data communication to its complete range of energy harvesting wireless sensor modules. These security mechanisms can optionally be activated and prevent different types of attacks, including replay and eaves-dropping attacks or forging messages.

New Smartwatch reference model from Toshiba

A new Smartwatch Reference Model, with enhanced sport, activity and lifestyle features, has been unveiled by Toshiba Electronics Europe. Built around the TZ1001MBG ApP Lite application processor, it provides developers with a starting point for designing smartwatches for sport watch applications.

New family of Hall effect sensors target contactless switching

Diodes Incorporated has introduced a new family of micro-power 8 bit resolution Hall effect sensors for contactless switching in portable consumer electronic products, domestic appliances and industrial equipment. The sensors, operating over a supply range of 1.6V to 3.6V and a magnetic range of ±400G, have been designed to allow the operating mode and sampling rate to minimize current consumption down to micro-power levels.

D/A converter range extended

Microchip has expanded its non volatile D/A converter product line with the addition of the MCP47FEBXX range. The low power, single- and dual channel devices feature 8, 10 and 12bit resolution, integrated EEPROM and an I2C interface.

Network tester enhances 4G user experience

The TM500 network tester family is, according to Cobham Wireless, helping mobile operators to accelerate the deployment of high capacity networks. Already supporting key LTE-A features such as carrier aggregation of two and three component carriers, TDD/FDD carrier aggregation, and eICIC, the TM500 is now able to support Coordinated Multipoint transmission/reception (CoMP), a major feature of 3GPP LTE-A Release 11.

MOSFET drivers come in small packages

Microchip has announced what it says is the first in a new family of power MOSFET drivers. Featuring a new driver architecture for high speed operation, the MCP14A005X and MCP14A015X are available in SOT-23 and 2 x 2mm DFN packages. The small packaging enables higher power densities and smaller solutions, while the design targets fast transitions and short delay times that allow for responsive circuit operation.
