Audio DSP chip embeds AfterMaster’s HD technology Together with AfterMaster HD Audio Labs, ON Semiconductor has released the BelaSigna 300 AM audio DSP chip embedded with AfterMaster technology, all in a 3.63x2.68x0.92mm size WLCSP package. The chip will operate at 4mA from a 1.8V source while running AfterMaster HD’s algorithms to offer high-fidelity, studioquality sound to audio-enabled devices and services. Using real-time mastering and re-mastering processing technology as well as proprietary Adaptive Intuitive Response mechanisms, AfterMaster HD preserves original sound quality while introducing greater depth, clarity and richness to any listening experience. Product distribution of BelaSigna 300 AM with AfterMaster HD will be available through ON Semiconductor’s global channel and distribution network ON Semiconductor www.onsemi.com Box PC reduces cost of ownership in automation Arbor Technology’s IEC-3300 is a very small boxed chassis system based on the new Intel Celeron SoC & Atom processors E3800 family (formerly codenamed “Bay Trail”). Measuring 163x109x39mm, the robust IEC- 3300 is well suited for a multitude of space/cost critical applications within industrial applications and digital signage. This ultra-reliable reliable system has an extended temperature range and is constructed from only the finest industrial components thus giving users the benefit of long-term support and a low total cost of ownership. The turn-key, go-anywhere solution suits customers looking for out-of-the-box CE/FCC certification, or for customers with demanding digital signage projects. The processor is capable of driving HD multimedia, and the system offers HDMI and VGA ports for dual displays. The dustproof design and a -20 to 55ºC temperature range make the IEC-3300 fit for use within warehouses, train stations, factories and multiple other locations. The standard IEC-3300 is available with on-board N2807 CPU, but systems configured with the J1900 and E3825 are also available upon request. Arbor Technology www.arbor-uk.com Wireless data logger targets agriculture COB LED arrays lower the cost of industry-leading efficacy Lumileds has launched what the company claims is most cost effective line of chip-on-board (CoB) LED arrays with industry-leading efficacy. The LUXEON CoB Compact Range aims to strengthen Lumileds’ lead in the CoB category by enabling the most cost competitive solutions for PAR, GU10 and MR16 lamps. The line of arrays is also distinct in that the same optic can be used for both a 35 W equivalent and a 50 W equivalent GU10 or MR16 lamp, thereby reducing system cost and development effort to the manufacturer. The LUXEON CoB Compact Range is designed to deliver unsurpassed center beam candle power (CBCP) making it the ideal choice for designers of PAR lamps and other compact directional lamps. The range of 5 W, 7 W and 9 W CoBs produce between 600 and 1100 lm at 110 lm/W, making 100 lm/W GU10, MR16, PAR 16 and PAR30 equivalents a reality. The COB LED arrays offer high efficacy, high flux, and a small LES (light-emitting surface) of 6.5 mm to enable high punch at low beam angles. In a GU10 lamp, the LUXEON CoB 109 achieves 70,000 candelas and 1,500 lumens with a 10˚ beam angle. The LUXEON CoB Compact Range 109 will also be available with CrispWhite Technology. Lighting designers are using LUXEON CoB Compact Range arrays to produce their most cost competitive retrofit and directional lamps for retail, home and hospitality applications. Lumileds has worked with several key ecosystem partners, for the CoB family, to release compatible drivers, optics and holders to help speed the time-to-market of all lamps. Lumileds www.lumileds.com applications The GL 100-WL is a wireless data logger that transfers measurement data via peer-to-peer, LAN or WiFi connections to downstream processing units such as PCs. The device is offering users particular benefits in outdoor usage, claims vendor Althen GmbH. Examples are measurements in agriculture, photovoltaic installations or environmental projects. With sensor modules for temperature, humidity, carbon dioxide content as well as general and ultraviolet illumination intensity the data logger is directly supporting measurements associated to growth conditions in agriculture. The vendor also offers specific software for the evaluation of these measurements on a PC. The GL 100-WL can communicate with downstream nodes in multiple ways through routers, independent of the provider. The measurement data can be transferred directly to smartphones, tablets of PCs. They also can be connected to a local area network or a WiFi network. Likewise it is possible to connect multiple data loggers to a terminal across the internet. Farmers and gardeners among the GL 100 get a fast overview at their respective locations over the parameters relevant for plant growth. A software that is optimised for these dimensions enables users to quickly detect current conditions and trends. If the measured values exceed the permitted range, warnings are issued. The data logger will be showcased at the upcoming Sensor + Test exhibition (Nuremberg, May 19 through 21).
