Altera’s 28-nm FPGA Portfolio Continues to Receive Industry Accolades

Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced its 28-nm portfolio has received recognition from two prestigious electronic trade publications. Electronics Weekly selected Altera's 28-nm portfolio as the "Semiconductor Product of the Year – Digital" at its annual Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards. EDN Magazine also selected Altera's 28-nm SoC FPGA family as one of its "100 Hot Products of 2011." These accolades represent the latest in a series of awards and recognitions Altera's 28-nm portfolio has received since its introduction in 2011.

The Elektra European Electronics Industry Awards are the most prestigious product, technology and business awards in Europe. Founded by Electronics Weekly in 2003, the awards recognize the achievements of individuals and companies in the electronics industry. A panel of independent industry experts and a representative from Electronics Weekly selected Altera's 28-nm FPGA portfolio as the winner of the "Semiconductor Product of the Year – Digital" from a pool of six nominees. The portfolio was selected for its performance, design flexibility and suitability for applications. Winners of the Elektra '11 awards were announced at a ceremony at the London Park Plaza in December 2011.

EDN Magazine also selected Altera's SoC FPGA, which integrate an ARM-based hard processor system (HPS) with the fabric of a 28-nm FPGA, as one of its "100 Hot Products of 2011." The list highlights the electronics industry's most significant products of the year based on innovation, significance, usefulness, and popularity as determined by the magazine's editors and readers.

Altera's 28-nm FPGA portfolio is the industry's most comprehensive set of devices tailored to meet the customer's diverse design requirements. The portfolio provides customers with clearly differentiated solutions across its Arria® V, Cyclone® V, and Stratix® V product families. Altera's SoC FPGAs integrate an ARM-based hard processor system including a dual-core ARM® Cortex™-A9 MPCore™ processor, peripherals and memory interfaces with the fabric of a 28-nm FPGA using a high-bandwidth interconnect backbone. By investing in process technology, architecture, transceiver technology, and hard intellectual property (IP) blocks, Altera's 28-nm portfolio enables designers to meet their unique cost, performance, and low power needs with less time and effort.

Banner Engineering DF-G3 Discrete Fiber Amplifier Features World-Class Long Range Sensing Capability

Banner Engineering introduces its DF-G3 discrete long-range fiber amplifier with dual digital displays for use with plastic and glass fiber optic assemblies. Featuring increased sensing power, the DF-G3 can sense more than 3 meters (10 ft.) with opposed mode fibers or more than 1 meter (3 ft.) with diffuse mode fibers. The extra power provides increased detection reliability for dark targets at long range and enhanced detection sensitivity when using specialty fiber assemblies for large area and small part detection applications.

The DF-G3 is available with a single discrete output or two dual discrete outputs. The dual discrete outputs can be independently taught to trigger at different intensity values, which is ideal for correct part-in-place or error-proofing, bottle down, and edge guiding applications.

“We developed the DF-G3 fiber amplifier to meet our customers’ need to precisely detect smaller targets at longer ranges” said Dennis Smith, Senior Marketing Manager, Banner Engin…


TURCK is now offering the option to completely shield M8 picofast ® cordsets by connecting a braided shield directly to the coupling nut. This provides a cost-effective and reliable connection with 100 percent cable and connector shielding, which protects against electromagnetic and radio frequency interference.

The 3 and 4-pin cordsets are available with flexlife ® PVC or PUR jacketed cable. All connectors deliver IEC IP 67 protection.

The M8 picofast line, like most TURCK cordsets, provides male or female, straight and right angle connectors, standard and custom lengths, and pigtails or extensions. Fully encapsulated mating receptacles are also offered, completing the system.

IDEC Releases New Line of High Efficiency Power Supplies

IDEC Corporation announces the PS5R-V line of DIN-rail power supplies, offering their customers high-efficiency in a compact form factor at competitive prices. These power supplies suit a wide range of needs in the industrial marketplace, and carry all of the required certifications necessary for use in these demanding applications. This next generation of the industry standard PS5R power supply family has updated features and specifications to meet current and future needs.

The PS5R-V line of power supplies includes 10W, 15W, 30W, 60W and 120W versions, with additional versions coming soon. These power supplies have a very compact form factor with overall dimensions reduced by up to 25% from previous generations. The reduced form factors combine with DIN-rail mounting to free up valuable control panel space and reduce installation costs.

Operating temperature ranges up to -25 to +75 degrees C offer more versatility. These extended operating temperature ranges often allow these power…
