Osram’s PrevaLED and Optotronic ranges at Farnell element14 The light engines are launched with and without integrated driver technology providing a versatile range of current and voltage windows, lighting control and system level efficiency and warranty. The Osram PrevaLED range is available in a variety of luminous flux and offers four shades of white from warm white to cool white, in form factors from strips to round and square modules meeting Zhaga standards for lighting. Farnell element14 www.premierfarnell.com Mouser and ADI sponsor 12th annual NASA Tech Briefs design contest Together with Analog Devices Inc, Mouser Electronics is sponsoring the 12th annual NASA Tech Briefs magazine “Create the Future” Design Contest, a challenge to engineers and students worldwide to create the next great thing. The grand prize winner will receive global recognition and a cash prize of $20,000 for an innovative product that benefits society and the economy. Previous contests have produced more than 9,000 design ideas from engineers, educators and students in more than 100 countries. Entries are being accepted now through July 1, 2014. The “Create the Future” Design Contest has been responsible for bringing attention to product designs that increase the quality of life, improve the efficiency and quality of healthcare and help to reduce dependence on non-renewable energy sources. Mouser Electronic www.mouser.com Anglia signs with DEM Manufacturing Anglia Components has been appointed a UK and Ireland distributor for Roxburgh, Deltron Enclosures and Deltron Connectors, three brands manufactured by DEM Manufacturing, one of the UK’s best known manufacturers of EMC filters, connectors and enclosures. All three brands are being supported by an extensive stock profile held at Anglia’s UK warehouse, and available online for same day shipment through Anglia Live. Anglia will be supporting Deltron Enclosures standard range of general aluminium die cast enclosures, IP rated enclosures; IP65 enclosures, IP66 enclosures, IP67 enclosures and IP68 enclosures, and industrial and heavy duty options suitable for harsh environments. It will also offer Deltron Connectors DIN and XLR plugs and sockets, phono and jack plugs, 4mm banana plugs, crocodile clips and a variety of electrical connectors suitable for instrumentation and speaker applications. Roxburgh industrial filters and general EMC filters, including IEC inlet filters, will also be supported with stock. Anglia www.anglia.com Free-board programme adds Atmel 8- and 32-bit MCU kits Distributor Future Electronics has added three of the latest development boards for Atmel microcontrollers to its FTM Board Club website, making them available free to qualified members. One of the new boards supports the ATmega168, an 8-bit AVR microcontroller. The other two are for users of the SAM D21 or SAM R21 families of ARM Cortex™-M0+ microcontrollers. The ATMEGA168 XMINI is a flexible for users of the ATmega168 MCU, providing an on-board debugger, a large prototyping area with connections to all the MCU’s pins, and a footprint for an optional Arduino shield connector. The board is automatically detected by the Atmel Studio development environment on power-up. The ATSAMD21-XPRO and ATSAMR21- XPRO boards provide a feature-rich hardware environment for developers working with ARM Cortex-M0+ based MCUs. The boards may be easily extended with Atmel I/O1 Xplained Pro, OLED1 Xplained Pro, QT1 Xplained Pro, and PROTO1 Xplained Pro extension boards, enabling designers to quickly build a realistic application environment in which to experiment with the capabilities of the microcontroller. Both boards include a debugger, and are powered over USB. The new boards are available to members of the FTM Board Club at www.my-boardclub.com. Future Electronics www.FutureElectronics.com RFMW Ltd to distribute Aviacomm’s transceivers RFMW Ltd and Aviacomm announced a distribution agreement that covers customers in North America, Europe and South East Asia. RFMW will distribute Aviacomm’s portfolio of smart transceivers including the ARF1020, ARF2010 and ARF3010. These direct conversion RF transceivers can operate on any frequency band between 50 MHz and 2,800 MHz without restrictions of band-limited ports, enabling more efficient and scalable RF front-end designs. Aviacomm products are low power, high performance, RFIC transceivers that address a variety of radio protocols and architectures, including TVWS, 4G/LTE, 3G, 2G, Cognitive Radios, Software Defined Radios, and other specialty wireless communication devices. RFMW Ltd www.rfmw.com Rochester Electronics re-introduces Intel’s 8XC196 family Rochester Electronics is a fully-authorized continuing source for the Intel 8XC196 Family of microcontrollers. Introduced in 1982 as the Intel MCS-96 Family, these MCUs are most commonly used in motor control, modem, printer and pattern recognition applications within embedded systems. In 2007, Intel discontinued this family of microcontrollers, at which point Rochester Electronics acquired the intellectual property of these devices to continue helping Intel’s customer base for this specific family. Through its Extension-of-Life programs, Rochester Electronics currently offers this family in a variety of packages, temperature ranges and speeds, including military versions for the 80C196KB, 87C196KC and KD.
