Modules with Wirepas Mesh protocol for massive IoT
Würth Elektronik has entered into a partnership with the Finnish software developer Wirepas. The aim of the agreement is to offer a portfolio of radio modules that use the IoT network protocol Wirepas Mesh from 2021. This innovative technology can be used to create large IoT networks, for example of battery-powered sensors, in which each participant also functions as a router.
MagI³C-LDHM power module for LED power supply
With the MagI³C-LDHM (LED Step Down High Current Module) Power Module, Würth Elektronik now has the perfect solution for LED power supply in its portfolio. To make it even easier for developers to use these DC/DC converters with integrated controller IC, inductors and capacitors, Würth Elektronik now offers an LDHM Evaluation Board.
WE-AGDT compact transformer in EP7 package
The WE-AGDT series has made a new SMT assembly transformer available, which, at the same time, is part of a power supply solution developed by Würth Elektronik for demanding gate control of SiC MOSFETs. The innovative WE-AGDT is a compact transformer in an EP7 package. It features a wide input voltage range from nine to 36V, a high saturation current of 4.5A, as well as very low leakage inductance, and a very low capacitance of 6.8pF between...
Matching service for WE-MCA chip antennas
Würth Elektronik has announced that it now offers developers wanting to use WE-MCA series chip antennas a free matching service. WE-MCA are compact SMT-mountable multilayer ceramic chip antennas available in numerous single and dual band versions.
Heat dissipation solution with the WE-TGF from Würth
With its WE-TGF (Thermal Gap Filler) Würth Elektronik has announced that it now offers a new solution for heat dissipation. The key feature of the self-adhesive gap-filler material is the non-conductive barrier with a high dielectric strength has a high thermoconductivity index of 1 W/(m*K).
REDEXPERT selecting capacitors for cross-technology
REDEXPERT, the online platform for the simulation and selection of electronic components on the basis of real measurements, has expanded its presence. Würth Elektronik has heeded its customers’ suggestions from the practical area and has installed a feature that enables the direct comparison of aluminum-electrolyte and aluminum-polymer capacitors. The calculation of the ripple current has also been improved.
Würth Elektronik WE-CST EE4.4 current sense transformers
Würth Elektronik has expanded the product family of WE-CST current sense transformers with the new WE-CST EE4.4 series. An innovative manufacturing process not only makes these current sense transformers extremely small (4.7x4.65mm, 3.55mm), but also provides better insulation.
Formula E finale in a six-pack at Berlin
The races of the Formula E electric racing series, which were cancelled due to the pandemic, will be made up for on 5th and 6th, 8th and 9th, and 12th and 13th August 2020 at Berlin Tempelhof Airport. The races will be held with different track variants without spectators at the track and with smaller pit teams.
Würth Elektronik debuts phototransistor optococouplers
Phototransistor-type optocouplers are available for the first time from Würth Elektronik. The WL-OCPT Series 816 coplanar design optocouplers consist of an infrared LED on the input side and a phototransistor on the output side.
On and off switching variants from Würth
It has been announced that new buttons and switches are enriching the Würth Elektronik electromechanical portfolio: the miniaturised WS-TASV and WS-TASU buttons, WS-SLSU slide switch and another WS-RSTV series device on/off switch.
MagI³C power module includes compact LGA-6EP package
Würth Elektronik has extended its MagI³C power module product family to include a compact one amp version in LGA-6EP package. The special feature of the module (type 171010501) is the “power good” function. The module indicates on one pin whether the output voltage is in the nominal range.
Combining wireless power and data transmission
Würth Elektronik has extended its ‘Wireless Power 200W Extended Medium Power Solution’ developer kit to include a new function. Although it was already possible to transfer data from the receiver device to the charging station, bidirectional data transfer can now be combined with the charging process.
Würth Cat6-compatible WR-MJ modular jack connectors
Würth Elektronik has expanded its family of WR-MJ modular jack products by launching RJ45 jacks in the 8P8C layout, intended for use in Cat6 data lines. These modular jacks are available in various designs: in horizontal and vertical directions and also with an angle of 47.5°, shielded and unshielded, and in some cases with EMI contact fingers.
High-current inductor targets automotive applications
Würth Elektronik has extended its portfolio of AEC-Q200 Grade 1-qualified electronic components with the WE-HCFA high-current inductor
Controlling plant growth with horticulture LEDs
The new Lighting Development Kit from Würth Elektronik with horticulture LEDs accelerates the development of systems for targeted plant lighting. Companies developing solutions for vertical farming in cities or optimised ‘supplemental lighting’ in greenhouses can use the Development Kit to explore the effect of different ‘lighting recipes’ on plants and in their different growth phases.
