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.
WR-FAST provides robust connection for power
WR-FAST Fast Connection is the name of a series of THT-configurable male connectors for accommodating single wires with blade receptacles — for example in household appliances. The new connectors are available in various blade designs, orientations and dimensions and are intended for current flows up to 16A and working voltages up to 300V.
Wireless power coil WE-WPCC WPT/NFC from Würth
Würth Elektronik has expanded its portfolio of wireless power coils. WE-WPCC WPT/NFC combines wireless power transmission with the Near Field Communication (NCF) standard thus enabling, for example, the combination of a charging station for smartphones with identification and payment functions.
Würth Elektronik publishes coaxial connectors catalogue
Würth Elektronik has extended its range of coaxial connectors and published a new catalogue. On 174 pages, the ‘Coax Connectors’ English language catalogue presents nine product groups. The new product families of SMB and SMP connectors is the highlight.
Putting an end to radio interference with the WE-CCMF
With the introduction of the WE-CCMF, Würth Elektronik offers a compact multilayer common mode choke in a 0504 package which is characterised by high common mode attenuation in the WiFi frequency range (>30 dB @ 2450MHz).
Elara line of simple to integrate satellite navigation
Würth Elektronik has launched a product family of GNSS modules. The Elara line represents some of the smallest GNSS modules on the market - both with and without integrated antenna. For sophisticated navigation tasks, the Erinome series uses all four global navigation satellite systems at top speed: GPS, GLONASS, Galileo and BeiDou.
Preferential supply to manufacturers of medical devices
The Würth Elektronik eiSos Group has set up a task force to guarantee preferential supply to manufacturers of medical devices. As one of the largest European suppliers of electronic components, the Waldenburg based company thus wants to ensure that the production of urgently needed medical technology can be further expanded worldwide.
Mountable WE-RCIS radio interference suppression choke
Würth Elektronik has complementd its AEC-Q200 product group of qualified radio interference suppression chokes with an SMT-mountable model: WE-RCIS. The rod core choke, available in four versions, is characterised by its high current-carrying capacity and very high saturation power.
Versatile temperature sensor comes in compact package
Although the WSEN-TIDS versatile temperature sensor from Würth Elektronik measures just 2.0x2.0x0.5mm, its range of application is wide: Its accuracy in the measuring range -40 to +125°C is ±0.5°C, while in the range -10 to +60°C it goes down to ±0.25°C.
Circuit board technology produces PCBs for ventilators
The worldwide spread of the coronavirus is not only increasing the demand for personal protective equipment, but also for medical ventilators, and here circuit board technology can help.
Safe industrial radio applications
Würth Elektronik has presented the Bluetooth Low Energy 5.1 module Proteus-III and the proprietary version Thyone-I for safe industrial radio applications. The modules, measuring only 8x12x2mm, with integrated antenna, encryption technology and six configurable IO pins, are based on the Nordic Semiconductor nRF52840 chipset.
Ultra-small low noise low power OCVCSO
IQD Frequency Products has launched a range of high frequency Oven Controlled Voltage Controlled SAW Oscillators (OCVCSOs). Three frequencies are currently available in the OCVCSO series, 400MHz, 800MHz and 1.2GHz and they are packaged in a 25.4x22x13.2mm industry standard SMD package.
Power module for 24V industrial voltage network
A new generation of MagI³C FDSM power modules have been released by Würth Elektronik for the 24V industrial voltage network. The power modules with fixed 3.3 or 5V output voltages are now also available with an input voltage of 36V, following on from versions with maximum input voltages of 28 and 42V.
Variable step down micro module family increases power
The MagI³C-VDMM (Variable Step Down Micro Module) power module family from Würth Elektronik is supplemented by more powerful 1 and 1.2A versions. The input voltage range (from 2.5 to 5.5V) covers the standard 3.3 and 5V bus voltages, and the adjustable output voltage ranges from 0.8 to 5.5V.
Low-resistance grounding of the cable shield
Under the product name WE-EEL, Würth Elektronik now offers cable clips made of aluminium sheet to enable stable grounded fixation of cables of various dimensions. Cables with diameters ranging from 2.5 to 20.5mm can now be simply affixed to circuit boards using clips in any of twelve different sizes and an M4 screw.
Charging e-bike batteries without a cable
Wireless battery charging is a comfortable and maintenance-free affair. Companies wishing to tap these advantages for the market of e-bikes and other small electrical vehicles can now turn to Würth Elektronik for development and component support.
A fantastic success under the sign of e-mobility energises fans
Recently, on 25th May the Formula E circus returned to the closed-down airfield at Berlin Tempelhof, transforming it into a suspense-packed venue for motor sport. And once again, Würth Elektronik was there as a technology partner, with 70 customers and employees lined the race circuit, cheering on the Audi Sport ABT Schaeffler team with its pilots, Daniel Abt and Lucas di Grassi – with success.
RGB LEDs with PLCC contacting design for reflow soldering
Well suited for accent and decorative lighting, optical displays as well as industrial applications, Würth Elektronik has presented the WL-SFTW and WL-SFTD series of new RGB LEDs. Due to their PLCC contacting design, the two series of individually controllable LEDs are suited for SMT assembly and reflow soldering.
