How 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping Will Revolutionize the Electronics Industry

Traditional prototyping may have been the norm for years, but things are rapidly changing. Computer-aided design, combined with new manufacturing techniques, is already altering the industry in a number of ways. For example, we’re seeing 3D printed mechanical prototypes and architectural models being made. Let’s look at how 3D printing and rapid prototyping will revolutionise the electronics industry. Faster Prototyping…

XENSIV™ TLE5501 – Infineon’s first angle sensor based on TMR technology

Infineon’s new TLE5501 products are 360° TMR-based angle sensor that detects the orientation of a magnetic field. This is achieved by measuring sine and cosine angle components with Tunneling Magneto Resistance (TMR) elements. These raw signals (sine and cosine) are provided as a differential output signal and can directly be further processed within a micro controller. The large output voltage…

Obsolescence Management – Designing Ahead

If you don’t design defensively and plan ahead, 4e Technologies believes obsolescence issues are bound to cost you in the end. These days, if you’re looking to market and support a product for any length of time, obsolescence management will rear its ugly head. The traditional approach to obsolescence was reactive – doing nothing until receiving an end-of-life statement from the manufacturer….

Allegro MicroSystems releases a fully integrated, monolithic power monitoring IC with reinforced isolation

Allegro MicroSystems has released a fully integrated, small form factor, power monitoring IC with reinforced voltage isolation. Allegro’s ACS724 and ACS711 Current Sensor ICs are commonly used in internet connected power outlets and other IOT devices. The ACS71020 improves upon these popular ICs by including power sensing functions and by eliminating power and isolation components that would otherwise increase the…

Why buy a fan when you can purchase a cost-saving complete assembly?

Purchasing fans, especially when they need to be customised, can be a time consuming and potentially costly process. However, this does not need to be the case. In conjunction with EBM Papst, Inelco Hunter now offers a one-stop-shop fan implementation service offering easier, streamlined implementation of complete fan assemblies. The potential benefits include a shorter supply chain and a lower…

MGA-A: no tin whiskers, no tin dendrites

SCHURTER extends its successful MGA / MGA-S line of 1206 dimension SMD ceramic fuses with an aviation version that is tin whisker free and completely dispenses with leaded coating. Crystalline tin dendrites and tin whiskers pose a considerable risk of short circuits in highly dense electronics. Dendrites form during the electro-deposition process, whereby heavy marks could appear on the fuse…

Network Rail approved 19″ cabinets from APW

Available from Luso are APW’s range of 19” racks and cabinets. Several of their families are identified as being suitable for Rail and Transportation markets. Luso suggest however for Rail applications that the first choice should be their Network Rail approved VERAK EMC/IP range, which offers /EMC shielding and IP65 protection. Luso are attending the Rail Infrastructure Networking Event at…

At the same time the prices have been reduced due to increased sales. Their PCB online calculator now offers high-quality aluminium core material with a thermal conductivity of 2.0 W/mK and 6 working…

Rochester Electronics and Analog Devices team to eliminate design requalification costs

Rochester Electronics and Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) have teamed together to help customers avoid the high cost involved in requalifying existing products by replicating an obsolete ADSP-2101 DSP. After the DSP went to End of Life (EOL) status, Rochester Electronics worked with ADI and a leading industrial customer to replicate the device to satisfy existing production requirements. When the ADSP…
