ADLINK ETX modules used in train safety monitoring system to provide reliable remote monitoring.

With the increasing deployment of high-speed transportation systems worldwide, railcar security monitoring is of paramount importance in improving the precision and safety of rail travel. This is critical for the rail industry, considering the impact of a potential accident or incident. Effective safety monitoring requires a remote monitoring system to detect and analyse the status of rolling stock and send the information to onboard train operators and an off-site central control room to allow for instant reactions to abnormal situations or safety hazards.

To buy or not to buy: factors influencing whether to do-it-yourself, or use an off-the-peg solution.

In the electronic equipment industry there has been a long tradition of designing and building everything in-house. Companies would pride themselves on having everything under one roof, from design through to manufacturing, test, distribution, sales and administration. In large OEMs it is not uncommon to find different groups working in competition with each other on the same or similar projects, each unaware of the other's existence. This can give rise to duplication of effort and wasted budget.

Programmable 2A 2-Cell Supercapacitor Charger with Automatic Cell Balancing in a Compact 9mm2 Package

The LTC4425 is a constant-current/constant-voltage linear charger designed to charge a 2-cell supercap stack from either a Li-Ion/Polymer battery, a USB port, or a 2.7V to 5.5V current-limited supply. The part operates as an ideal diode with an extremely low 50mO on-resistance making it suitable for high peak-power/low average power applications. This device charges the output capacitors to an externally programmed output voltage in LDO mode at a constant charge current, or to VIN in normal mode with a smart charge current profile to limit the inrush current until the VIN to VOUT differential is less than 250mV. In addition the LTC4425 can be set to clamp the output voltage to 4.9V or 5.4V. In conjunction with Arrow Electronics Ltd.
