Technology Spotlight

New Electronics' Technology Spotlight section focuses specifically on the latest technological developments within the electronics sector. Whether innovative new design or theoretical concepts, our Technology Spotlight articles will keep you informed of advances within the electronics industry.

AEC-Q101 N- and P-channel TrenchFETs

Power MOSFETs produced using a special process design that is optimized for use in the automotive industry. Low thermal resistance, -55ºC to 175ºC operating junction and storage temperature range, many package and SMD/SMT and through-hole mounting options. A full range of polarity options is also available, including N-channel and P-Channel co-packages.

The smallest, lightest, mixed-layout connector

Discover maximum space saving with combined signal and power in the new Gecko-MT connector from Harwin. When your application must not fail, connect with confidence. The next generation high-rel connector is tested to extreme levels of G-force and temperature for maximum performance in harsh conditions.

Artesyn 650 Watt Open Frame Medical AC-DC Power Supplies

Capable of delivering 650 W with forced-air cooling (750 W peak) or 400 W with natural convection, the CNS650-M series follows the industry standard 4X6 inch form factor. It is available in U-channel, open-frame, enclosed and enclosed end-fan options. The series incorporates 2XMOPP and is Type BF ready, while digital communication offers control and monitoring functions.

Automotive Grade Thin Film Chip Resistors

AEC-Q200 qualified resistors designed for automotive electronics, industrial and medical equipment, telecommunications, and test & measuring equipment. The resistors feature superior resistance against sulfur-containing atmosphere, an MSL-I moisture sensitivity level, and offer high component and equipment reliability.

Display Visibility a Problem in Sunlight?

Then Optical Bonding could be the answer. Display touch screens or glass are layered onto a module, leaving a tiny air gap. Environments of high brightness are a problem as light reflects as it travels through the various mediums, impairing the intensity and clarity of the end image by lowering the brightness and readability.

Amphenol RF SMA to AMC4 RF

Cable Assemblies are based on a 1.37mm coax cable with a standard female SMA jack on one end and a right-angled male AMC4 cable plug on the other end. They offer 50O impedance and work in a frequency range of DC to 6GHz. Cable lengths range from 50mm to 300mm.

New! Rugged, Solder-Cup Spring-Loaded Connectors

The new 868 series spring-loaded, and target connectors feature solder-cups to accommodate wire and cable attachment. With flanged insulators and fastening options, these connectors are ideal for mounting into product housings in docking stations, cable terminations, heavy duty quick connects and panel mount equipment.

Structured Cabling made easy

Assembly routine often encounters the unexpected. A damaged cable segment needs to be repaired quickly but you do not necessarily want to lay a new cable segment just yet. The existing network has to be extended or an additional device integrated but you do not have an assembled cable at hand. The perfect solution for these situations is now available: field-assembly data networking components from Telegärtner.

Gecko Screw-Lok now with Reverse Fixings and Cable Assemblies for Design Flexibility

Gecko Screw-Lok connectors resists extreme shock, vibration & temperature, offering a secure and robust connection in demanding applications. The range of miniature 1.25mm pitch connectors includes Ready-To-Use Cable Assemblies, Metal Backshells for strain relief & RF shielding and now features Reverse Fixings for ultimate design flexibility with the same high-reliability.

New AXON-IMX6 - For embedded applications requiring extra I/O flexibility

New from RDS is the TechNexion AXON product family which consists of small form factor (58 x 37mm) modules designed for specialized embedded applications requiring extra I/O flexibility. Powered by the NXP i.MX6 cortex-A9 processor they have the AXON Fabric Logic built in. This is a specialized IC that allows additional functions including nearly infinite pinmuxing for true pin to pin compatibility between SoC versions. It has a system memory of up to 2GB DDR3, eMMC storage of 8GB, Gigabit LAN and TTL/Dual LVDS/HDMI/MIPI interfaces. Wi-Fi Bluetooth, Qualcomm QCA9377 is optional.

Vacubond enabling ATEX certification

It is necessary for all products exposed to a potentially hazardous environment to be ATEX certified. To be ATEX certified, you must isolate one side of the fire triangle. Oxygen, heat or fuel. Display Technology can remove the oxygen risk with their optical bonding solution, Vacubond. Vacubond enables void exclusion bonding to reduce the amount of oxygen within an industrial display.

PCAP Touch Solutions for a large range of Temperatures

RDS has a range of AMT PCAP Touch panels that remain stable even in extreme temperatures. Their versatile PCAP touch sensors are manufactured to optimise performance in a variety of applications. Durable designs and materials that can withstand electromagnetic noise and challenging environments have set a new standard.
