LED-backlit 27” monitor delivers 2560x1440 pixels of resolution Display specialist AOC has released a LED-backlit 27’’ (68.6 cm) Super PLS monitor featuring a WQHD (Wide Quad High Definition) resolution of 2560x1440 pixels for demanding home users and professionals. With nearly twice as many pixels as conventional Full HD models, the display has a response time of only 5ms. Super PLS (Plane-to-Line Switching) is a display technology with especially high brightness and wide viewing angles. The q2770Pqu’s top-notch panel thus delivers stunning colour stability from viewing angles of up to 178° (both vertical and horizontal) and a luminosity of up to 300 cd/m² for use in environments with bright ambient light. The PLS model receives signals via VGA, DVI-D and HDMI sockets and in addition features a DisplayPort. The unit comes with speakers and a USB hub integrated in its bezel. Pen drives, digital cameras, hard drives and countless more USB gadgets can be connected via four sockets (two conforming to the USB standards 2.0 and 3.0 each). The monitor stand offers full ergonomic flexibility, including 130 mm height adjustment as well as tilt, swivel and pivot (portrait mode 90° rotation) functions, allowing working comfortably on large tables, documents or photos editing. AOC International (Europe) B.V. www.aoc-europe.com 7/16 DIN coaxial connectors support high power communications applications L-com has released a full line of 50 Ohm 7/16 DIN coaxial products for use in high power wireless communication systems such as cellular network antenna systems. The robust coax products are designed for the harshest environments. L-com’s 7/16 DIN product line includes connectors for 400 and 600 series low loss cable, within series and interseries adapters, caps, 400-series and 600-series cable assemblies and 1/4 wave coaxial lightning protectors. Competitively priced, the new products are in stock and available for shipment. The cable can be customized upon request. L-com www.l-com.com Regulated DC-DC converter provides 3-kVDC isolation for industrial automation applications Murata has introduced the Murata Power Solutions MEF1 series of 1 Watt regulated DC-DC converters suitable for use in industrial, automation and instrumentation applications. The tightly regulated single output converters, rated to better than 1% of nominal output voltage, are packaged in a fully encapsulated single-inline throughhole format occupying less than 1.17 cm squared footprint. The MEF1 converters are available with either 1 kVDC or 3 kVDC input to output isolation, the latter model having an enhanced immunity to voltage transients. Output voltage options are 3.3 or 5.0 VDC, with input voltages covering the popular nominal inputs from 3.3 to 24 VDC. Compared to previously available models, the MEF1 offers a 13% improvement in energy efficiency. Both the 3.3 VDC input and 3.3 VDC output options can operate over the full industrial temperature range of -40 to +85 degrees C without derating. Certification to the internationally recognized safety standard UL60950 is pending. Murata Europe www.murata.eu ARM powered Kinetis miniature MCUs come in 1.9x2mm WL-CSP Freescale Semiconductor is extending its Kinetis portfolio of microcontrollers to include Kinetis miniature (mini) MCUs, shrinking the devices into 1.9x2mm wafer-level chip-scale packages (WL-CSP) while maintaining the scalability and feature rich IP available across its entire Kinetis portfolio. The company’s Kinetis KL02 is included in this category. Leveraging WLCSP packaging, Kinetis mini MCUs allow designers to dramatically reduce the size of their boards and products. Alternatively, space-constrained applications that previously couldn’t incorporate an MCU now can be upgraded to become smart applications, adding a new tier of devices to the Internet of Things (IoT) ecosystem. Kinetis mini MCUs span multiple cores and several families and offer a broad range of performance and memory options, starting with the ultra-low-power Kinetis L series MCUs at just 32 KB Flash and scaling up to the highperformance Kinetis K series MCUs with up to 1 MB Flash.
