Waterproof wire-to-wire connectors for up to 6A

Molex-Squba-connector-family

Squba is a 1.80mm-pitch sealed wire-to-wire connector system from Molex, designed to fit in small spaces and provide protection against liquid, dust and dirt. The connectors carry up to a 6A and provide an IP67 NEMA rating on the seals – seals are retained with caps to provide manufacturers of sensors, lighting, vending machines and liquid dispensers with a durable ...

Eval kit for blood pressure wearables

Renesas-blood-pressure-monitor-eval-kit

Renesas has launched a blood pressure monitor evaluation kit including a circuit board, pressure sensor, arm cuff, pump, electronically-controlled valve, LCD panel and software. The PCB is based around a dedicated RL78 core-based chip (RL78/H1D) that includes the analogue functions needed for blood pressure measurement. Reference software is included, as is graphical user interface (GUI) development tool. The kit is ...

2.5A 5kV isolated gate driver is just 2.3mm high, with 8mm creepage

Toshiba-TLP5832-gate-driver

Toshiba’s TLP5832 gate driver photo-coupler delivers 2.5A peak output current from an SO8L package only 2.3mm high – approximately 50% lower than the firm’s current SDIP6 and DIP8 packages. “In spite of its small size, the IC offers an isolation voltage [BVS] of 5,000Vrms and guarantees creepage and clearance distances of minimum 8.0mm, making it suitable for applications requiring high insulation performance, including ...

Nordic supports concurrent Zigbee and Bluetooth for smart homes

Nordic-SoftDevice

Nordic Semiconductor has a Zigbee protocol stack to its nRF52840 multi-protocol system-on-chip, which now supports concurrent Zigbee and Bluetooth (5.0 and LE) operation. “Nordic’s multi-protocol solution for nRF52840 enables use cases that take advantage of several wireless technologies,” according to the firm. “Examples include interaction with a Zigbee smart lighting network from a smartphone via Bluetooth 5, or a Zigbee ...

Two-channel power system monitors current, power and energy

LTC2972  is a 2-channel power system manager, featuring current, power and energy monitoring around an intermediate bus and point-of-load (POL) converter. Monitoring circuit board power and energy use is a prerequisite for managing, optimizing and reducing their consumption in order to lower server rack and data center cooling and utility costs. The LTC2972 relieves the host of burdensome polling and ...

Mains harmonic mitigation for 60A three-phase, and beyond

Schaffner-ecosine-active-module

For power supply harmonic mitigation, Schaffnerhas introduced the Ecosine active sync series – FN3530/31/40/41, FN3532/42 and FN3545. “By deploying Ecosine active sync filters it is possible to achieve a THID ≤5%,” claimed the firm. “They also guarantee compliance with the toughest requirements of IEEE-519 and other international power quality standards. Harmonic current mitigation, reactive power compensation as well as load ...

Tiny Bluetooth module supports low energy and BR/EDR

Ublox NINA-B2_Kombi2

U-blox has announced Nina-B2, a dual-mode Bluetooth 4.2 stand-alone module for industrial IoT applications with built-in secure boot. “Pre-flashed with u-blox connectivity software which supports use cases such as Beacon, GATT client, GATT server, and serial port, Nina-B2 is configured using AT commands over UART, without requiring deep knowledge of the Bluetooth protocol,” said the firm. Built-in secure boot guarantees ...

Soft flexible heat dissipating adhesive sheets for power devices hit 10W/mK

Toyo-Lioelm-FTS-thermal-interface-material

Toyochem has introduced adhesive sheets that are thermally conductive while remaining soft and flexible, aiming them at power device heat sinking, especially in cars. Called Lioelm FTS, “Toyochem researchers in Japan were able to solve the performance trade-off problem between the elastic modulus and thermal resistance that typically arises in conventional epoxy-based thermal interface materials”, said the firm. “Lioelm FTS is ...
