Silicone hybrid optics reduce glare

  Bathrooms, warehouses and factories are challenging environments for lighting. Luminaires must withstand the heat and moisture without failing while providing an adequate amount of good quality light. The design of Ledil’s new Saga silicone hybrid optic rises to these challenges. A hyper-reflecting frame catches light spill from the silicone TIR lens and recycles it […]

Increase efficiency in mobile computing devices

  Vishay Intertechnology has extended its offering of TrenchFET p-channel Gen III power MOSFETs with a new device that is said to offer the lowest on-resistance for a p-channel MOSFET. Designed to increase efficiency in mobile computing devices, the -20 V Vishay Siliconix Si7157DP offers on-resistance of 0,0016 Ω and 0,0020 Ω at -10 V […]

Lighting-class LEDs introduced

Cree has introduced the new XLamp XQ-E LED family, which enables lighting manufacturers to significantly reduce the size and total cost of their LED luminaires without sacrificing light output, efficacy or reliability. This new LED packs the lighting-class performance of the XP-E2 into a package that is 78% smaller. The XQ-E LED family opens up […]

Energy harvesting solution

Linear Technology announces the LTC3330, a complete regulating energy harvesting solution that delivers up to 50 mA of continuous output current to extend battery life when harvestable energy is available. This solution requires no supply current from the battery when providing regulated power to the load from harvested energy, and only 750 nA operating when […]

AAD 093/10CMMB:High-voltage LED for smaller, better driver circuits

Designed to lower the cost for high-lumen, omni-directional replacement lamps, the Xlamp XB-G high-voltage white LED is said to deliver high efficacy in the small XB footprint. The high-voltage version white LED enables smaller and more-efficient driver circuits than do standard-voltage LEDs. The product also has a wider light distribution which can improve the omnidirectionality […]

EEPROMs for customers requiring unique IDs

Microchip announces the introduction of a family of serial EEPROM devices that feature a unique, pre-programmed 32-bit serial number for customers requiring unique IDs in their applications.  For applications needing longer than 32-bit IDs, the unique ID can be extended to 48-bit, 64-bit, 96-bit, 128-bit and other lengths by increasing the number of bytes read […]

Obituary

Philip du Preez The management and staff of EE Publishers are deeply saddened by the passing of one of industry’s true gentlemen, Philip du Preez, MD of Arrow Altech Distribution, on 1 June 2013, following a lengthy battle with cancer. Philip devoted almost 40 years of his life to the Altech Group and was an […]

Portfolio expanded with new transceivers

Microchip has announced the expansion of its LIN portfolio with the LIN 2,1 and SAE J2602-2 compliant and low-power MCP2003A transceiver, MCP2021A, MCP2022A, MCP2025 and MCP2050 LIN system basis chips (SBCs), and PIC16F1829LIN system in package (SiP). These devices include high-integration options, such as a voltage regulator, windowed watchdog timer, battery-monitor output and a MCU. […]

Bringing integrated op amps to low-cost 8-bit PIC microcontrollers

Microchip announces two new 8-bit PIC microcontrollers, the PIC16F527 and PIC16F570, which combine the ease-of-use of a PIC MCU with low-cost analogue peripherals to create a well-integrated, cost-effective family suitable for a wide range of applications. With an on-chip dual op amp module, 8-bit ADC and two comparators, these MCUs are ideal for systems that require […]
