Motion feedback encoder kits take up to 5,000 counts per revolution Mouser Electronics is now shipping the AEDC-55xx and AEDM‑5810 motion feedback encoders from Avago Technologies. Each contain an AEDT-981x module, an ASIC with integrated photo detector arrays, LED current regulation, interpolator and output driver circuitry, and a film code wheel that rotates between the emitter and detector ASIC. The AEDC-55xx kits feature a latching connector design, and the AEDM-5810 kit includes a patented snap-on cover, all enabling quick assembly. The AEDC-55xx modules enable a high resolution up to 2,500 or 5,000 counts per revolution (CPR), depending on the model, and the AEDM-5810 module offers resolutions up to 5,000 CPR. Mouser Electronics www.mouser.com TTI stocks Vishay’s Hi-Rel COTS tantalum capacitors Two new tantalum capacitor series from Vishay are now available in Europe at TTI. Designed to deliver maximum capacitance and reliability in the smallest packages for demanding, space-constrained applications, Vishay’s T25 Series offers low ESR and surge current testing options to MIL-PRF-55365. The T97 Series is the Hi-Rel COTS equivalent to the commercial 597D series, patterned after MIL-PRF-55365 and gives military and industrial customers a broader choice of capacitance values, voltage ranges and case sizes than MIL-Spec offerings. Vishay’s Tantamount T25 Hi-rel COTS Series is a solid tantalum surface-mount capacitor with a capacitance range of 22μF to 330 μF, supplied in a hermetically sealed metal case. TTI www.ttieurope.com 6LoWPAN gateway wireless router for IoT, in distribution From distributor RS, the Weptech (Landau, Germany) 6LoWPAN IoT Gateway provides an affordable open-source-based solution for connecting 6LowPAN-based IoT networks to the Internet. The Weptech 6LoWPAN (IPv6 over Low-Power Wireless Personal Area Network) IoT Gateway board functions as a border router in a 6LoWPAN-based network and connects a wireless IPv6-based network to the Internet. The board facilitates the routing procedures necessary to integrate an IPv6 mesh network comprising small wireless low-power devices into the global IP network. RS Components www.rs-online.com Link Microtek, exclusive UK disti for L-3 Narda-MITEQ Link Microtek, the Basingstoke-based supplier of RF and microwave subsystems and components, has been appointed as the exclusive representative in the UK and Ireland for the entire range of products manufactured by US firm L-3 Narda-MITEQ, which was formed early in 2015 after L-3’s acquisition of MITEQ Inc. The effect of the new agreement is to expand Link Microtek’s portfolio to encompass the rest of the MITEQ product range, including active RF and microwave connectorized components such as amplifiers, PIN diode attenuators, mixers and switches. In addition, the agreement puts Link Microtek in a much stronger position to address requirements for space-qualified components, since L-3 Narda-MITEQ is well established in many space-flight programmes with products such as mixers, oscillators, amplifiers and synthesizers. Link Microtek www.linkmicrotek.com TE’s ARISO Contactless Connectivity platform at Farnell Farnell element14 is now stocking TE Connectivity’s ARISO Contactless Connectivity platform, a hybrid interconnection system that reliably delivers power, data and signal over short distances, even in harsh environment applications. This platform helps overcome traditional connector restrictions and design constraints because no mechanical contact is required, enabling connectivity where connections were not possible before. In factory environments, dust, dirt, water, corrosion and vibration can threaten connections that are crucial to maximizing uptime and productivity. TE’s ARISO Contactless Connectivity overcomes those design restrictions. Premier Farnell www.premierfarnell.com Conrad Business Supplies grows portfolio beyond 700,000 products Conrad Business Supplies has further expanded the number and variety of high-quality electrical and electronic components and kits that it offers to customers. In the past year alone, Conrad has seen its product portfolio grow to surpass 700,000 line items, including 260,000 active, passive and electromechanical components, over 5,000 dev kits, 25,000 test & measurement devices, 50,000 types of electrical wire and cable, and over 150,000 tools and fixings. With this range extension, the omnichannel distributor now offers an even stronger product portfolio from international key brands such as MikroElektronika, Fairchild Semiconductor, TE Connectivity, Renesas Europe, Texas Instruments and Würth Elektronik.
