OKW's latest hand-held enclosures have been designed to house the latest pocket-sized electronics. Typical applications will include measurement and digital control devices – wireless or with cable connections, medical and laboratory equipment and peripherals and interfaces.
Tiny in-amp boosts system-level performance and saves space
What is said to be the industry’s first dual-channel in-amp available in a tiny 16-lead 4 mm x 4 mm chip scale package has been announced by Analog Devices. The new device is also said to be the first to provide complete performance specifications for differential operation.
Power supply charger combination is ideal for remote telemetry systems
Omniflex has introduced what it believes will solve voltage incompatibility problems in remote telemetry applications. The PT L50C-D is a combined power supply and dual charger that runs from a universal 85 to 264V AC input and is designed specifically for those applications that need to maintain both 12 and 24V systems.
Annunciator displays standalone panel-mount packages
Omni-X remote displays from Omniflex provide from 8 to 120 points of annunciator display in a standalone panel-mount package. They are designed to be used with a remote alarm annunciator logic such as an Omni16C RLU for safety-critical alarms, or to be connected directly to a PLC or Scada system for simple operator-friendly display of essential alarm information.
SystemCrafter Joins Xilinx ESL Initiative
SystemCrafter has announced its participation in the Xilinx ESL Initiative. This collaboration will help SystemCrafter to drive integration and adoption of SystemC to VHDL software as part of the ESL methodology for FPGAs, and enable the company to more rapidly develop enhanced versions in the future.
Spring ClampTerminal Blocks
Bulgin has announced RIA's latest screw terminal PCB terminal blocks. Called SpringCon they are available in both single part, with PCB terminals, and two-part PCB connector versions.
TCXO's save space and money
Aspen Electronics has announced the latest range of temperature compensated crystal oscillators (TCXOs) from Vectron International.
High Voltage MOSFET is optimised for power supply start-up
A high voltage MOSFET from Zetex Semiconductors has been introduced to handle the requirements of pre-bias supply circuitry. A 450V enhancement mode N-channel device, the ZXMN0545G4 is used in a simple linear regulator to supply PWM ICs at start-up, and is disabled once the converter is fully on.
Current monitor enables true short circuit current monitoring
With its wide common mode sense range of 0V to within 2V of the supply voltage applied, the ZXCT1051 current monitor from Zetex Semiconductors enables true short circuit current monitoring.
Miniature bipolar package increases power supply efficiency
Combining complementary NPN and PNP transistors in the SOT236 package, the ZXTC2045E6 from Zetex Semiconductors produces the drive requirement needed to switch high power MOSFETs and IGBTs in power supply designs.
