First public demonstration of Lime Microsystems' broadband transceiver reference design at MWC
The first public demonstration of the world's first MicroTCA broadband transceiver reference design will be given at Mobile World Congress by the design's originator, Lime Microsystems. Mobile World Congress (formerly 3GSM) will be held in Barcelona, February 11 – 14, 2008. Demonstrations will be given on the Freescale Semiconductor stand (stand 8B91 in hall 8) throughout the show.
Sensorless Field-Oriented Motor-Control Solution for ARM Cortex Based Devices
STMicroelectronics has announced a complete three-phase motor-control development kit based on the STM32 Flash microcontroller – launched mid-2007 – which provides all the necessary hardware and firmware to enable users to evaluate this 32-bit solution, and to begin development of their own sensorless motor-control application. The STM32 uses the powerful ARM Cortex-M3 core, developed specifically to address the requirements of cost-sensitiv...

PDI frequency control solutions to be distributed by the Abacus Group
Precision Devices, the frequency control solutions manufacturer, has today announced a franchise distribution agreement with electronic component distributor Abacus. This agreement enables the Abacus Group to distribute and supply PDI’s frequency control products in the UK and Ireland.
Low cost universal heating/refrigeration controller launched by Hawco range
Available from specialist controls and automation components supplier, Hawco, LAE’s AT1-5 is a universal, low cost panel thermostat selectable for heating or refrigerating control. Measuring just 77x35x77mm, the unit runs on the mains power supply, and enables direct compressor control via an integrated high power 16(4)A or 16(8)A relay.
IEC-connector filters with very low mounting depth
The range of SRB filters from Tyco Electronics ranks as one of the IEC-connector filters with the lowest installation depths on the market. The SRB filters are fully shielded and available with various capacitance values. This unique combination results in an outstanding common-mode rejection, which minimises the interference voltage depending on the model, and can reduce the radiation interference.
Customised Versions of Thermal Switch Configuations
Inertial Aerosystems has announced the availability of customised configurations of an established range of Thermal switches. These are primarily the 100 non hermetic, the 200 and 500 Mil series and the space qualified 700 series hermetically sealed thermostats, all manufactured by Honeywell in Redmond USA. A range of special train locomotive switches are also available.
