IR emitter doubles radiant intensity Product News 7/27/2005 Post a comment Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. has expanded its TSAL series of infrared (IR) emitters with the introduction of its new TSAL6100X01, an emitter certified under the Underwriters Laboratories (UL) standard for Smoke Detectors for Fire-Protective Signaling Systems, or UL 268. The company said the device also provides a typical radiant intensity of 130 mW/sr at 100 mA, which is more than double that of standard emitters.
Strong LCD glass sales boost Corning profit News & Analysis 7/26/2005 Post a comment Electronic materials and components supplier Corning Inc. posted second quarter earnings of $165 million, or 11 cents per share on sales of $1.1 billion, up from $108 million, or 8 cents per share on sales of $971 million in the year-ago quarter.
Compact converters put logic on fiber Product News 7/19/2005 Post a comment Test-and-measurement house Highland Technology now has both electrical-to-optical and optical-to-electrical converters that are compatible with the company's digital delay/pulse generator and other VME-packaged electrical/optical converter products. Use these to transmit error-free data over long distances using fiber.
MEMS on the Move News & Analysis 7/7/2005 Post a comment Micro-Electro-Mechanical Systems (MEMS) has a reputation of being one of those technologies that is always on the verge of taking off but somehow sputters. The truth is somewhat more complicated: Success varies widely depending on market segment. In this feature article, Jack Shandles gives us an update on MEMS.
As data rates begin to move beyond 25 Gbps channels, new problems arise. Getting to 50 Gbps channels might not be possible with the traditional NRZ (2-level) signaling. PAM4 lets data rates double with only a small increase in channel bandwidth by sending two bits per symbol. But, it brings new measurement and analysis problems. Signal integrity sage Ransom Stephens will explain how PAM4 differs from NRZ and what to expect in design, measurement, and signal analysis.
