Terahertz imaging camera given a face-lift

TeraSense produces imaging equipment for the Terahertz (THz) and sub-THz frequency ranges. There are three models of THz imaging cameras in the company's range, representing various pixilation capabilities; Tera-256, -1024 and -4096. The imagers operate at 0.05 to 0.7THz range, where more common materials are transparent.

PMBus Protocol added to Xsolo series

Excelsys Technologies has added PMBus communication capabilities to its Xsolo series of 1U, single-output power supply units (PSUs). Xsolo units, equipped with an optional I2C digital interface, can now be remotely monitored by system supervisory equipment using industry standard PMBus protocols.

1W DC/DC converter is 34% smaller

Murata has announced the MTC1 series of 1W regulated single output DC/DC converters. Murata claims the MTC1 Series occupies 34% less PCB area that competing parts and can operate up to 105°C.

DC gate driver reduces board space by 40%

Texas Instruments has introduced an integrated gate driver that offers adjustable gate drive settings with the flexibility to drive a range of external FETs, supporting multiple motors, speeds or varying loads. The DRV8701 enables designers to scale their platforms using a single gate driver across various brushed DC motor models in equipment such as white goods, household appliances, robotics, home automation, power tools, and industrial pumps and valves.

Power efficient MCUs

Renesas has announced the RX231 series of 32-bit MCUs, which is claimed to offer designers a combination of high performance and low power consumption, with digital signal processing and access to a floating point unit.

Quick charge and discharge supercapacitors

Jamicon has introduced the DA series of supercapacitors, available in the UK from specialist components distributor Components Bureau. Bridging the gap between capacitors and batteries, these electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs) are suitable for quick charge and discharge applications.

AC/DC supply provides 95% efficiency

XP Power has announced the EPL225 series of efficient, open frame AC/DC power supplies suited for industrial, IT and medical applications. The series comprises seven single-output models that offer a range of standard output voltages from 12 to 48V DC with an output power of 225W.

Pool production of Flexible PCBs

Beta LAYOUT has introduced a manufacturing service which offers the production of prototype Flexible PCBs using the PCB-POOL method. Numerous different PCB designs are combined and orders are manufactured together, which is said to help reduce the overall cost and eliminate expensive tooling charges.

Extension to PCB design tool

Altium has released MCAD Co-Designer: Solidworks, an extension for Altium Designer that provides integrated design data and a managed design revision environment between electrical and mechanical design teams working in Altium Designer and Solidworks respectively.

Buck controller eliminates intermediate power conversion

The ISL8117, from Intersil, is a 60V synchronous step-down PWM buck controller that can bypass the intermediate step-down conversion stage traditionally employed in industrial applications. Its low duty cycle (40ns minimum on time) enables the direct step-down conversion from 48V to a 1V point-of-load. This makes it possible for designers to reduce system complexity and solution cost in industrial, factory automation, medical and communications infrastructure applications.

Navigate through digital power system design

Version 5.2 of Intersil's PowerNavigator software is now available. The package, which can be downloaded free of charge, helps system designers to configure, validate and monitor systems featuring the company's PMBus enabled digital power products.

Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module for IoT applications

Alpha Micro has introduced the u-blox ODIN-W262, a compact stand-alone multiradio module designed to provide Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity for a range of IoT applications. The ODIN-W262 can be used in retail devices and medical applications, for which the module complies with the IEC 60601-1-2 standard.

Time-lag fuse with enhanced overcurrent and surge capability

Littelfuse has introduced the 835 Series Fuse, a time-lag, ceramic body ac fuse. The 835 Series is the first fuse from Littelfuse to combine an unparalleled I2t value, a maximum interrupting rating of 1500A at 250V ac and 1.5kA 8/20µs surge withstand capability in a 5 x 20mm footprint. Current ratings of 5A, 6.3A and 8A are available.

New Li-ion battery charger from TI

Texas Instruments (TI) has produced a Li-ion battery charger that facilitates faster and cooler charging by combining narrow-voltage DC/DC power path management with their proprietary MaxCharge technology to support input voltages up to 14V while providing charge current up to 5A.

Cypress samples 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with ECC

Cypress Semiconductor has begun sampling 4Mb asynchronous SRAMs with Error-Correcting Code (ECC), which enables them to provide higher levels of data reliability, without the need for additional error correction chips. As a result designs can be simplified and board space reduced.

Compact 10.1-inch TFT features WUXGA resolution

KOE, the Industrial display manufacturer, has introduced a new 10.1-inch TFT display module featuring WUXGA (1920 x 1200 pixels) resolution. The TX26D202VM0BAA has a pixel pitch of 0.11325mm (w) x 0.11325mm (h), which equates to a pixel density of 224ppi (pixels per inch).

XP Power launches 30W medical power supply

The EML30 series of 30 Watt single output ultra compact AC-DC power supplies from XP Power has been designed for use in medical applications. The series comes with what is being described as the smallest footprint and the highest power density in the industry when compared to other similar power supplies with medical safety approvals.
