Extending the company's range of telecommunications timing products, Exar has introduced the XR811xx series of Universal Clocks. Designed for communications, audio/video and industrial applications, the devices feature a variety of output frequencies from 10MHz to 1.5GHz, with ultra-low phase noise jitter of less than 200fs.
Suitable for the bridging of Draco tera switches in case of matrix failures, IHSE has introduced the highly-flexible Draco vario Repeater family. KVM extenders are used for the extension of computer signals up to 140m with Cat X cable and 10km with single-mode fibre optic cable. The installation of repeaters at intervals within a signal path multiplies the distance the signal can be transmitted to.
ZMDI announces a fully configurable true-digital, high-performance PWM controller IC for non-isolated, step-down DC/DC point-of-load (POL) supplies. The ZSPM1005 operates in a single-phase and single-rail configuration. ZMDI is following its roadmap for smart power management by adding another ZSPM IC family member targeted for FPGA designs and POL power modules for single-phase applications including telecommunication, base stations, servers and storage.
Linear Technology’s LTC6431-20 is a 20MHz to 2GHz single-ended input and output fixed gain amplifier offering 46.2dBm OIP3 (Output Third Order Intercept) and 2.6dB noise figure. Its OP1dB (Output 1dB Compression Point) is a best-in-class 22dBm. Two grades are offered, including the A-grade version that is 100% tested and guaranteed to have a minimum of 42.2dBm OIP3 at 240MHz, and the B-grade version offering a typical OIP3 of 45.7dBm at the same frequency.
Advantech has unveiled a comprehensive IoT solution, comprised of the company's UTX-3115 fanless, wide-temperature embedded box PC coupled with the Intel Gateway Solutions for Internet of Things (IoT). The solution features a pre-integrated software and hardware platform containing a Linux operating system, security and management features.
Suitable for high-end industrial applications that require fieldbus or real-time Ethernet connectivity, the Anybus CompactCom 40-series has been introduced by HMS Industrial Networks. The series will support all major industrial networks, and the first release in April 2014 includes connectivity to EtherCAT, POWERLINK, EtherNet/IP, PROFINET and PROFIBUS.
A 4Kb I2C Serial Presence Detect (SPD) EEPROM, designated the 34AA04, has been introduced by Microchip Technology. The device is specifically designed to work with the next generation of Double Data Rate 4 (DDR4) SDRAM modules used in high-speed PCs and laptops, while also supporting older DDR2/3 platforms.
Axiomtek has announced two advanced industrial-grade and ruggedised computing products which comply with IEC 61850-3 / IEEE 1613 standards and related regulations for power substation automation. The IPC122-833-FL is an application-oriented industrial-grade computer system and the rBOX101-6COM(ATEX) is an anti-explosive, rugged, DIN-rail fanless embedded computer system.
The S8 SD/MMC flash memory controller, launched by Hyperstone, is suited for applications such as SDHC, SDXC, SD (SecureDigital), smartSD, smart microSD, high speed and UHS-I memory cards as well as e•MMC MCP modules.
Speeding the deployment and lowering the cost of rolling out broadcast video applications on standard servers, Artesyn Embedded Technologies has introduced the SharpCaster video transcode acceleration engine. The company has estimated development savings of at least $500,000 (USD) plus a time saving of nine months or more compared to customers developing their own solution.
