A combined analogue and digital current sensor, the PAC1921 can present power, current or voltage over the single output pin. Simultaneously, all power-related output values are also available over the 2-wire digital bus, which is compatible with I²C. The PAC1921’s analogue output is adjustable for 3V, 2V, 1.5V or 1V microcontroller inputs; it has an integrated 39-bit accumulation register and 128 times gain configuration. The device supports high-speed power management of light and heavy loads from 0V to 32V and comes in a 10-lead 3x3mm VDFN package. It was designed with the 2-wire bus to maximise data and diagnostic reporting, while having the analogue output to minimise data latency. Microchip www.microchip.com Signal quality analyzer modules support 56G and 64G BER measurements Anritsu Corporation has launched the MP1861A MUX and MP1862A DEMUX modules to expand the MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer’s functions of the MP1800A 32G BERT to support 56G and 64G BER measurements for evaluating high-speed serial transmission devices, such as SERDES. When used in conjunction with the MP1800A, the two new modules support a generation of NRZ Data and BER measurements up to 64.2 Gbit/s. In addition, the support for Jitter Tolerance and Bathtub Jitter measurements meets the recommendations of the latest CEI-56G and 400GbE standards. Anritsu’s MP1800A Signal Quality Analyzer series is a plug-in, modular-type Bit Error Rate Tester (BERT) simultaneously accommodating Pulse Pattern Generator (PPG), Error Detector (ED), synthesizer, and jitter generation modules. The instrument supports simultaneous generation of synchronous signals and measurement of Bit Error Rates (BER), for up to 8 channels, by installing multiple 32G PPG and ED modules. Anritsu Corporation www.anritsu.com Thin clear ceiling antennas are almost invisible Pulse Electronics Corporation has announced the family expansion and formal launch of its ultra-thin, clear, DAS ceiling antennas. Extending just 0.33 inches (8.4mm) below the ceiling, the see-through housing of the DASUTCC antennas makes them nearly invisible when mounted, yet they have an industry-leading PIM rating of better than -155 dBc at 2x20W (2x43dBm). Their translucent design makes them ideal for providing access to wireless networks in hotels, convention centers, formal spaces, older buildings with low ceilings, shallow spaces, or areas where aesthetic concerns are of major importance. Part of the company’s PIMinator™ line of low passive intermodulation antennas, the DASUTCC omni antenna family now includes seven different antenna product variants. Three different connector options are available to support N, 4.1-9.5 Mini-DIN, and 4.3-10 connectors, either with or without an energy director. Products in the family include the DASUTCC500NF with N female connector; the DASUTCC500MD with 4.1-9.5 Mini-DIN connector, and the DASUTCC5004310 with 4.3-10 connector.
