System Design

Many electronics engineers create board level products, but their boards are integrated into systems at some point. And systems need things like enclosures, power supplies and environmental management.

New Electronics recognises the importance of system design and its impact on the final product. In this section, New Electronics reviews the latest developments in system design and brings visitors to the website information on how these developments are being applied.

High operating temperature thermal sensor array

Melexis has unveiled a new version of its far infrared (FIR) thermal sensor array. The device has lower thermal noise compared to the current MLX90640, an increased refresh rate of 64 Hz and an elevated operating temperature up to 125 °C.

Cutting board space, BoM, and battery load

STMicroelectronics’ STHVDAC-253C7 digital controller for tunable capacitors, such as ST’s STPTIC family, has been designed to shrink the size, bill of materials (BoM), and power consumption of antenna-tuning circuits for stabilising smartphone RF performance.
