Compact and affordable mass market 3D radar sensor
Cognitive Pilot, an autonomous driving technology joint venture of Russia’s Sberbank and Cognitive Technologies group, has presented its new, compact and affordable Cognitive Mini Radar sensor. The 3D radar sensor is intended for mass use in the autonomous driving industry and already the device is in demand for fighting the coronavirus.
Portfolio expanded with MCUs for industrial automation
Renesas Electronics has announced the RX72N Group and RX66N Group of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCUs), new additions to the RX Family that combines equipment control and networking function on a single chip.
Jumper chip cuts component temperature by over 25%
A thin film device that allows designers to transfer heat from electrically isolated components by providing a thermal conductive pathway to a ground plane or common heatsink has been released by Vishay Intertechnology.
Sensors are at the heart of robotic mobility disruption
“Disruption is coming to our streets and cities” said Pierre Cambou, Principal analyst, Imaging, at Yole. “Mobility has defined the way humans have organised their society for ages and our world is currently being reimagined around a new generation of robotic vehicles. They appeared insignificant two years ago when we published our first report on the matter, today they are on the brink of changing the world as we know...
Capitalising on edge computing with supercharged DRAM
With the advent of 5G and the exponential growth of connected devices and edge computing, more data is being generated and processed at the edge. By the edge we mean it is the practice of processing data near the edge of the network where the data is being generated, instead of in a centralised data processing warehouse.
Low latency PHY with MII interface and enhanced mode
The DP83826 from Texas Instruments offers low and deterministic latency, low power and supports 10BASE-Te, 100BASE-TX Ethernet protocols to meet stringent requirements in real-time industrial Ethernet systems.
Cable management systems: how to specify responsibly
Specifiers in this current climate have a duty of care to ensure the cable management systems they procure are made from a minimum of 50% recycled material. In this article, Jon Chamberlain, Sales Director at Marshall-Tufflex explains the environmental responsibility and the benefits these systems provide.
MCU starter kit to jumpstart accurate analogue evaluation
Renesas Electronics has introduced a new Renesas Solution MCU Starter Kit (RSSK) for developers working with the 32-bit RX23E-A microcontroller (MCU), which features a highly accurate analogue front ends (AFE).
Four-channel XMC for waveform generation
Pentek has announced its most recent addition to the Jade Architecture family, the Jade Model 71871, a four-channel 1.25 GHz D/A converter XMC for RF and IF waveform generation. The Model 71871 combines two Texas Instruments DAC3484s to deliver four independent analogue outputs each through its own digital upconverter and 16-bit D/A with sampling rates to 1.25GHz.
Multipurpose ABS enclosure with integral PCB slots
The MB Series from BCL Enclosures is a multipurpose ABS enclosure series with lids specifically designed to be flexible and customisable to suit multiple applications. All except one model have internal PCB slots (ribs) to retain printed circuit boards securely.
