Current sensor suppresses interference fields
A coreless open loop current sensor for accurate and stable measurements in industrial applications is now being sampled by distributor Rutronik UK.
How to drive BLDC motors effectively with MOSFET tech
Our increased use of electric motors, especially in the automotive and industrial sectors, means that they are now a very large consumer of energy worldwide. BLDC (brushless FDC) motor technology is coming to the fore to improve reliability and efficiency, and MOSFET technology is providing an efficient drive solution. Mirko Vogelmann, Product Sales Manager Power Semiconductors, Rutronik explains.
Module covers multiple wireless protocols
Based on the SoC (System-on-Chip) nRF52840, Nordic’s most powerful short-range wireless microcontroller, Minew’s new MS88SF2 multi-protocol module can be operated with the wireless protocols Bluetooth 5.0, ZigBee 3.0, Thread and ANT, as well as with proprietary 2.4GHz stacks.
Rutronik plans Bluetooth, IoT demos at embedded world
How to take advantage of the latest Bluetooth, IoT, 5G and display technologies will be demonstrated at embedded world in Nuremberg (25-27 February 2020). Visitors to booth 467 in Hall 5 will see the latest solutions from RUTRONIK EMBEDDED, including system concepts ranging from connected sensor nodes and gateways to customer-specific display customisations.
Bluetooth RF module supports ten BLE connections
The HCI (Host Controlled Interface) Bluetooth RF module PAN1326C2 from Panasonic is based on Texas Instruments’ CC2564C dual-mode Bluetooth controller that combines Bluetooth Basic Rate (BR), Enhanced Data Rate (EDR) and Low Energy (LE).
Why devices with position tracking require an internet connection
In a few months the European satellite system Galileo will be completed. Most devices with location tracking functions already support it. Even so, their manufacturers should endeavour to implement over-the-air access, as this is the only way that satellite selection can be adjusted on demand as needed – something which can be a critical factor, writes Bernd Hantsche, Director Product Marketing Embedded & Wireless at Rutronik.
Transceiver module boasts energy efficiency
The compact wireless transceiver module TCM 515 from EnOcean offers reduced power consumption, smaller size and a lower purchase price compared to the previous generation TCM 310. It is now available at distributor Rutronik UK.
Energy-efficient module enables fast implementation of LTE
The ME910G1 enriches the Telit xE910 product family with a high-performance LTE-M and NB-IoT combo module. With optimised power consumption and enhanced quality of coverage it is specifically tailored for low-data throughput IoT applications and enables new low-cost IoT device deployments
LTE data card reaches up to 1.2Gbps download
The LM960A18 Mini PCIe (mPCIe) data card from Telit delivers high-speed data rates via Advanced LTE for products in network appliance environments such as routers, mobile gateways and access points. It is available at Rutronik UK.
Sensor prototyping kit suits IoT applications
The multi-sensor IoT prototyping kit Nordic Thingy:91 from Nordic Semiconductor is now available at Rutronik UK. Designed for IoT applications based on the nRF9160 SiP (System-in-Package), the new kit features the nRF52840 for short-range radio connection and a broad collection of sensors and interfaces, which makes it highly versatile and enables rapid prototyping and proof of concept.
Power MOSFETs help cut system costs
Infineon OptiMOS 3 and 5 best-in-class (BiC) power MOSFETs in space-saving SuperSO8 package are available at Rutronik UK. They enable higher power density in addition to improved robustness compared to former models, and reduce system costs while increasing overall performance.
High-voltage MOSFETs offer enhanced PFC
The STMicroelectronics MDmesh M6 high-voltage super-junction MOSFETs offer improved PFC (Power Factor Correction) and LLC efficiency especially at light load conditions for increased power density. They are available at Rutronik UK.
DC/DC converters allow pcb layout flexibility
Modular 2W DC/DC converters with complete medical certification are included in RECOM’s REM2 series. Thanks to their compact SIP8 package (23.0x8.0x12.2mm) and many variants, they offer developers freedom in designing their PCB layout.
Wireless SoCs enable design flexibility for IoT
Ultra-low power multi-protocol wireless SoCs and modules of Redpine Signals’ RS9116 family are available from Rutronik UK in hosted (nLink) or embedded (WiSeConnect) software architecture with multiple host interfaces (SDIO, USB, SPI, UART). As a result, they provide great design flexibility for battery operated IoT devices.
