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.

New USB 3.0 camera reference design kit

Cypress Semiconductor and THine Electronics have introduced a USB 3.0 camera reference design kit with 13Mpixel resolution at 21frame/s. The Ascella design kit, based on Cypress’s EZ-USB CX3 USB 3.0 camera controller and THine’s THP7312 image signal processor (ISP), comes with optimised firmware, a software development kit, reference circuit schematics and materials.

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.

Flexible fanout buffer

IDT has expanded its portfolio of programmable timing devices with the introduction of the 5P11xx family of low-jitter universal output fanout buffers.

CARRYTEC M enclosures now in new slim version

OKW’s CARRYTEC M portable instrument enclosures are now available in a new slim version for tablet style electronics. Targeting tablets and instruments which have more modest space requirements but that require enhanced levels of protection, these enclosures have been designed for medical and wellness applications, communications, data recording, plant and machine construction, agriculture and forest management.

Miniature OCXO delivers ±5ppb stability

Available in an industry standard package measuring just 14 x 9.0mm and with a height of only 6.5mm, IQD's new IQOV-162 series OCXO provides a frequency stability down to ±5ppb over the full industrial temperature range of –40 to 85°C.

Bioplastic Handheld Enclosures From Stock

Sponsored by OKW: The SOFT-CASE series of handheld enclosures from OKW is now available from stock manufactured in BIOGRADE® bioplastic material. For most applications this bioplastic is suitable as a replacement for the existing fossil plastics, such as ABS, which has been used until now.
