Altera’s Stratix V FPGAs Break Through Performance Barriers with Industry’s First Single-Chip, Dual 100G Transponder

Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced the industry's first single-chip, dual 100G transponder solution implemented in a 28-nm high-performance Stratix® V FPGA. Altera's solution integrates two independent 100G transponders into a single FPGA, enabling optical equipment manufacturers to keep pace with network performance and bandwidth demands while lowering capital costs. A live hardware demonstration of Altera's dual 100G transponder solution will be shown in its booth #2825 at the Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition/National Fiber Optic Engineers Conference 2012 (OFC/NFOEC) in Los Angeles the week of March 5.

The growing number of Internet-enabled devices today is resulting in an order of magnitude increase in network bandwidth demands and is driving the need for large-scale network-upgrades. Optical Transport Networks (OTN) allows carriers to scale quickly and support the tremendous growth of traffic on their networks. Altera's OTN solutions enable carriers and service providers to increase the number of optical links across the transport layer and support higher data rates across a variety of applications (voice, video, storage).

Altera's single-chip, dual 100G transponder simplifies the move by carrier and service providers to higher-density 100G transport by providing a fully integrated standards-based solution. The solution leverages the enhanced performance of Stratix V FPGAs and industry-leading OTN IP to increase the density of 100G transport solutions beyond the capability of any other ASSP- or FPGA-based solution in the industry. Altera's latest FPGA-based OTN offerings include 28-nm high-performance silicon optimized for transport applications, industry-leading high-speed transceivers and OTN system IP.

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 M8 CORDSETS WITH 100 PERCENT SHIELDING OPTION PROTECT AGAINST EMI/RFI

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…
