Power-managing IC gets by charger-fed designs Product News 3/4/2004 Post a comment Linear Technology's LTC3455, designed as a complete power-management solution for handheld computers, digital cameras and MP3 players, features the company's PowerPath controller to enable a seamless transition between the battery, USB source or external supply that powers it. It thus does away with the significant power losses found in charger-fed designs. The multipurpose device, which contains two synchronous step-down DC/DC converters, USB power controller, thermally regulated lithium-ion ba
MPEG-1 encoder encodes and compresses analog A/V Product News 3/4/2004 Post a comment The MPEG104 board is a PC/104-Plus form factor MPEG-1 encoder, capable of capturing high-quality analog video and audio streams, encoding them in compressed MPEG-1, M-JPEG, or JPEG formats, and sending them to a host computer over a 32-bit PCI bus.
Cirrus Logic beefs-up ARM9-based embedded CPU line Product News 3/3/2004 Post a comment Adding fuel to the growing industry-wide support for the ARM architecture is Cirrus Logic's expanded ARM9-based embedded processor line, targeting a very wide range of applications that include digital media servers and audio/video jukeboxes.
AVX OXICap delivers high capacitance, ultra low ESR Product News 3/1/2004 Post a comment AVX Corp. has developed a new niobium oxide multi-anode (NOM) capacitor that delivers low equivalent series resistance (ESR), high capacitance, and high ripple current for applications such as power supply decoupling and high-speed data processing. Designated the OxiCap Series, this family of capacitors utilizes advanced technology to provide design engineers with a safe (non-burning) high resistance failure mode.
Designed for both differential and single-ended high-speed applications, a new surface-mount, 1.0-mm shielded connector system from ERNI Electronics Inc. saves board space in board-to-board connections with a 5-mm circuit board distance.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
