High-precision 12-bit PCIe digitizer delivers multi-GHz real-time processing Agilent Technologies’s U5303A is a compact dual-channel PCIe digitizer with 12-bit resolution, sampling up to 3.2 GS/s, and on-board real-time processing. The board has a DC-to-2 GHz bandwidth, features 9.1 ENOB at 100 MHz and a 58dB signal-to-noise ratio together with very high datatransfer rates from an eight-lane PCIe 2.0 interface. The U5303A gives users the ability to integrate advanced real-time signal processing within the embedded Xilinx Virtex-6 fieldprogrammable gate array. This is made possible by the Agilent FPGA development kit for High-Speed digitizers. This software kit provides interfaces that leverage the full density and speed of the FPGA while ensuring the digitizer’s outstanding level of performance at multi-gigasamples per second. Agilent Technologies www.agilent.com Versatile RFID reader is optimised for a read range up to 2m The Ha-VIS RF-R200 is the latest RFID reader in Harting’s range of auto-ID solutions, it is a mid-range unit optimised for read ranges up to 2m. The RF-R200 reader is available in a number of different versions to suit the requirements of diverse applications. These include a model with an RJ45 Interface and PoE (Power over Ethernet) capability, a unit with a USB Interface designed for office use, and a basic PCB module without housing for integration into machines or other products. Key features of the RF-R200 reader include 500 mW of transmitter power, support for automatic transmission of the acquired transponder information to a computer, and support for an external antenna as well as the internal antenna with a read range up to approximately 20 cm. The unit is sealed to IP 30 requirements, and occupies a minimum footprint when installed on a “top hat” rail in a switch cabinet.

The USB wall plug Adapter is compliant with North American input voltages and has a Level V efficiency compliant output of 5VDC and 1A, which is suitable for small devices with touch screens, including smartphones, tablets, e-readers, GPS and media players. The Adapter is also available in EU, UK, and AU/Nz versions. The 5W USB Charger is equipped with overvoltage protection, over-current protection and short-circuit protection. It has a no-load power draw of less than 0.03W. In addition to Level V efficiency compliance, the wall plug also features a 5-Star standby power rating, as well as safety approvals from UL and cUL. Phihong www.phihong.com Transfer-moulded super-mini dual in-line package power module rated up to 35A Mitsubishi Electric has announced the Ver.6 Series transfermoulded super-mini dual in-line package intelligent power module (DIPIPM), using a seventh-generation IGBT with a CSTBT structure. Designed to reduce both power loss and the cost of inverter drive systems for motors used in air conditioners and other small-capacity motor drive applications, the module is built-in seventh-generation IGBT with CSTBT structure, which reduces VCE(sat) by 15% compared with Mitsubishi Electric’s Ver.5 series. The super-mini package has an extended current rating ranging from 10A to 35A. It features bootstrap diodes with built-in current limiting resistors. Short-circuit detection accuracy has been improved to +/-5%. Suitable for operation at 600V, the units measure 24.0×38.0×3.5mm.
