Power cube inductors pack high frequency, power density in small package Product News 10/6/2004 Post a comment Pulse, a Technitrol Company, offers a new high-frequency, high-power density family of shielded shaped core power inductors that provide improved efficiency and greater energy storage in a smaller package size. Designed for use with T-socket processors, the through-hole PG0220 series is suitable for use in voltage regulator module (VRM) applications in computer desktops, portables, workstations, and servers, as well as choke inductors for buck converters, and in dc/dc converters.
Toroidal inductors tout high current capability Product News 10/6/2004 Post a comment Combining high current handling capability and frequencies up to 1 MHz, Gowanda Electronics' new series of through-hole toroidal inductors are designed for use in power applications where high current and not size is a primary concern.
Ultra-bright LEDs provide six color choices Product News 10/5/2004 Post a comment Featuring a luminous intensity from 13 millicandelas (mcd) to 80 mcd, a new series of ultra-bright 0603 LEDs from Vishay Intertechnology gives designers a choice of six colors in the smallest surface-mount form factor on the market, according to the company.
What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Are the design challenges the same as with embedded systems, but with a little developer- and IT-skills added in? What do engineers need to know? Rick Merritt talks with two experts about the tools and best options for designing IoT devices in 2016. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
