5000 lumen LED module simplifies design-in for lighting manufacturers Distributor Silica (Avnet) has a simple-to-install LED module by Sharp that helps solid-state luminaire manufacturers reduce the cost and complexity of manufacturing high-performance LED lighting, minimising inventory. Sharp Intermo LED modules simplify inventory by combining three LED lighting components in one: a chip-on-board (CoB) emitter, holder and thermal interface. Solderless assembly means plug-and-play simplicity: manufacturers simply attach the module to its heat sink by two screws and push-fit electrical connections. The integrated thermal interface material (TIM) eliminates adhesives and grease. Silica www.silica.com NFC tags use FeRAM and on-chip AES-128 Distributor Farnell element14 now has Panasonic’s NFC tag ICs and their accompanying evaluation boards: the tags have builtin FeRAM (ferrolectric RAM) and AES-128 encryption Panasonic’s NFC tags provide a number of value added connectivity features including high security, high speed Near Field Communication and data storage, high radiation resistance using 4kbit Non-Volatile FeRAM Technology and have ultra low power consumption. The products are compliant with NFC forum standards and support ISO/ IEC14443 TypeB & FeliCa RF Interfaces. The tags and evaluation boards support a wide variety of applications including Internet of Things, energy harvesting (battery-less operation possible), latest consumer electronics. Farnell element14 http://uk.farnell.com/ Silicone rubber inserts as retrofit EMI protection Astute Electronics has launched a new EMI filter technology that can be designed-in or retrofitted into existing connectors very simply, even in the field, providing an effective EMC solution that will survive extreme environmental abuse. The EESeal FilterSeals from Quell are formed from resilient silicone rubber. The inserts are easily and quickly inserted into standard connector bodies, without the need for any special tooling, forming an effective EMI filter and environmental seal. The inserts can be custom-manufactured in as little as seven days and will fit into many different hi-rel connector formats. Astute Electronics www.astute.co.uk Richardson RFPD announces Hittite Microwave products from ADI Richardson RFPD has announced the availability and full design support capabilities for Hittite Microwave products from Analog Devices, Inc. Following the July, 2014 acquisition, Hittite Microwave products have been fully integrated into Richardson RFPD’s portfolio of ADI products. That combined portfolio now covers the entire signal chain, from antenna to bits and back, across the entire frequency spectrum up to 110 GHz. Complemented by its industry-leading data converters, ADI’s RF, microwave and millimeter-wave portfolio now includes more than 2,000 high-performance products, from functional blocks to highly-integrated solutions, development platforms and modules. Serving the industrial, aerospace and defense, automotive, and communication infrastructure markets, the combined ADI and Hittite results in augmented levels of design tools, technical support and manufacturing capability to customers designing RF, microwave, and millimeter wave systems. Richardson RFPD www.richardsonrfpd.com Foremost to distribute full colour OLED display pushbuttons Essex based specialist distributor of electromechanical components Foremost Electronics is now stocking the latest full screen OLED pushbutton from NKK Switches. This OLED switch may be used to display a variety of graphics in addition to words and symbols and also provides simple video playback. The full screen design allows larger displays to be assembled from a number of switches providing an interactive video + HMI display and control panel. The OLED display interface uses SPI Protocol enabling high-speed synchronous communications. The buttons features the world’s smallest class of OLED with 96x64 display dots, a 50,000 hour lifetime and 16-bit 65,536 colours.
