The Intel Edison, available from Mouser Electronics, is powered by a 22nm Intel Atom system on chip (SoC) that includes a dual-core, dual-threaded central processing unit (CPU) running at 500Mhz and a 32-bit Quark microcontroller (MCU) running at 100Mhz. Measuring only 35.5 x 25 x 3.7mm, the Intel Edison includes 1GByte of RAM and 4Gbytes of Flash and supports dual-band 801.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi as well as Bluetooth 4.0 and 2.1 EDR.
Mouser is now stocking the AP3988 primary side power switcher from Diodes Incorporated. This enhanced, off-line, side-switching controller is designed to cut costs and improve power supply performance by providing primary-side control that eliminates the need for opto-couplers and secondary-side control circuitry.
At the Assembly Show 2014, Kistler will showcase its extended maXYmos product range, presenting the maXYmos NC for electromechanical joining modules. Visitors will also experience precise joining and testing demonstrations with the maXYmos BL, which is specifically designed for hand presses.
Mouser is offering Vishay ambient light sensors, which enable settings to be adjusted automatically in response to changing ambient light conditions and can turn on and off and adjust features of lighting systems to ensure safety and conserve battery power. They closely match the human eye’s ability to see light, with wavelengths between 380nm to 780nm.
Mouser Electronics is stocking the DM320018 PIC32 Bluetooth starter kit from Microchip Technology. The DM320018 is a low-cost Bluetooth development platform based on the 32-bit Microchip PIC32MX270F256D microcontroller. This easy-to-use starter kit features a Bluetooth HCI module, single-chip three-axis accelerometer and temperature sensor, high-output multi-color LED, and two USB connectors.
Mouser Electronics is now stocking the CC256x Bluetooth 4.0 controller from Texas Instruments (TI). Based on TI’s seventh-generation Bluetooth core, the SimpleLink CC256x dual-mode device is a complete Bluetooth Basic Rate (BR)/Enhanced Data Rate (EDR)/Low Energy (LE) HCI or Bluetooth Low Energy solution.
Intertronics has launched DYMAX Encompass technology in a range of adhesives that exhibit colour change (See-Cure) and red fluorescence (Ultra-Red) coupled with light curing capability. These adhesives are expected to appeal to industries such as medical device manufacturing and electronics production.
At this year’s Fakuma event from 14–18 October 2014, Kistler will present sensors and systems for inspecting the quality of injection moulding processes. Visitors will also be able to see the newly developed CoMo DataCenter 2.0, which is claimed to offer diverse and sophisticated options for documenting and evaluating production data from the CoMo Injection System.
Linear Technology has introduced the LTC6268 and LTC6269 FET-input single and dual op amps, which are designed to deliver outstanding performance for high-speed and high-dynamic-range transimpedance amplifier (TIA) and buffer applications. With just 3fA bias current at 25°C and 4pA maximum over the entire -40°C to +125°C temperature range, the LTC6268/LTC6269 can resolve input currents from several femtoamps to amps.
