Highest Bandwidth 4:1 Multiplexer for High-Performance Analog Applications
Fairchild Semiconductor has introduced the FHP3194, a 1.2GHz 4:1 analog multiplexer. Boasting an 800MHz small-signal and 500MHz large-signal -3dB bandwidth (at G=2), the FHP3194 offers approximately 25 percent higher bandwidth than comparable devices. This performance makes it the only multiplexer on the market today with the bandwidth capable of exceeding the high-resolution requirements for high-definition (HD), 1080p and 1080i, and PC graphic ...
LED light engines from CML simplify the use of LED technology
New Power LED light engines from CML-Innovative Technologies (CML-IT) make moving to LED technology easy. SSL light engines can include all the elements required to implement an LED-based lighting product – LED, lens, driver circuitry, heatsinking and packaging – meaning that all designers need do to benefit from this low power, long life technology is to connect up to the appropriate power source.
Miniature push/pull connectors can take full immersion.
New from international assembling distributor PEI-Genesis is the Amphenol SCE series of miniature push/pull connectors, which offer an environmental protection rating of IP68 and are therefore ideal for use in applications where they may be subjected to full immersion.
Industrial TFT-LCDs from Anders Electronics
Anders Electronics has announced a new range of TFT-LCDs for instrumentation, process control, automation, portable measurement, and other price-sensitive industrial applications. The 3.5, 5, and 5.7-inch modules all operate from –20 °C to +70 °C – making them suitable for a broad range of industrial applications, but without the price premium typically associated with extended temperature operation.
Small Half-Watt High-Brightness LEDs for Automotive Applications
Avago Technologies has introduced the industry's first Half-Watt (0.5W) high-brightness red-orange and amber light-emitting diodes (LED) in an automotive-industry-standard PLCC-4 surface-mount (SMT) package. This new series of 0.5W Power LEDs feature the industry's smallest package size and are optimized for long operating life under severe environmental conditions making them ideal for automotive exterior lighting applications. Avago is a leadin...
Intersil launches multiplexer that allows switching between four different input signals for video applications
Intersil introduced the ISL59446, a triple-channel 4:1 multiplexer that allows the user to switch between four different input signals such as RGB or YPbPr (the colour space used in video electronics). The device allows customers to replace multiple muxes, simplifying design and saving board space.
2- and 4-pole power relays from Finder
Finder has announced an update to its 56 series relays, which now provide enhanced functionality during installation and test. The updated series of 2-pole and 4-pole power relays feature as standard on all models a test button and mechanical indicator for manual operation during test and commissioning.
