Freescale Semiconductor (NYSE: FSL) today celebrated the recent shipment of its two-billionth sensor by launching a new, high-bandwidth 3-axis analog accelerometer engineered to detect ultra-high frequency motion and vibration in industrial motors and equipment.
The Brno Exhibition Centre is finishing preparations for the top event of the season - the 56th International Engineering Fair. Gates to the leading Central European industrial technology show will open on Monday 29 September and during the five days more than 70 000 visitors are expected to pass through them. Novelties of 1600 exhibiting companies from 31 countries and an attractive supporting programme will compete for their attention.
The International Engineering Fair 2014 is at the forefront of a whole complex of specialized trade fairs with an engineering and technological focus. Together with MSV there will also be the International Trade Fair of Machine Tools IMT which already has 478 companies signed up, including 276 foreign ones.
Ametherm today announced that its SURGE-GARD™ series of NTC inrush current limiting thermistors, recently acquired by Ametherm from Measurement Specialties (formerly RTI Electronics), has received Underwriters Laboratories (UL) certification per UL file number E209153. The devices are certified to UL 1434 for single- and three-phase input voltages up to 480 VAC.
A new low power I/Q modulator from Linear Technology enables battery-powered transmitters operating in the 30MHz to 1.3GHz frequency bands, breaking new ground in power consumption, sideband suppression, carrier leakage and dynamic range performance. The LTC5599 modulator, powered from a single 2.7V to 3.6V supply, draws only 28mA current, less than 60% that of alternative solutions-with no performance sacrifice.
Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of high-power, surface-mount precision thin film chip resistors. Built on aluminum nitride substrates, PCAN series devices offer power ratings of 2 W and 6 W in compact 1206 and 2512 case sizes, respectively.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the H- and MP-grade versions of the LT8705. This high efficiency (up to 98%) synchronous buck-boost DC/DC controller operates from input voltages above, below or equal to the regulated output voltage. The LT8705 operates over a 2.8V to 80V input voltage range and produces a fixed 1.3V to 80V output, using a single inductor with 4-switch synchronous rectification.
Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTM8046, a 2.5W output DC/DC µModule® (micromodule) converter with 2kVAC galvanic isolation (production tested to 3kVDC) in a 9mm x 15mm x 4.92mm ball grid array (BGA) package.
Linear Technology announces the LTC6091 and LTC6090-5, additions to the LTC6090 family of precision operational amplifiers which operate on a supply voltage up to 140V (±70V). The dual LTC6091 features separate output disable pins, making it useful in high voltage multiplexed applications. The decompensated single LTC6090-5 amplifier offers higher speed and is stable at a gain of 5 or above.
