Lattice Announces New 32 QFN Package For MachXO2 Programmable Logic Devices

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced the immediate availability of its low cost, low power MachXO2™ family of programmable logic devices (PLD) in a new 32 QFN (Quad Flatpack No-leads) package. Since the MachXO2 family's production release in 2011, customers worldwide have taken advantage of its innovative combination of ease-of-use, flexibility, system integration and affordability. The addition of this small 5mm x 5mm form factor package option extends use of the MachXO2 PLDs to applications where size constraints, ease of layout and manufacturability are critical.

One customer that has already designed the MachXO2 device in the new 32 QFN package into its products is Arago Systems of Sophia Antipolis, France. "Our Wisnet product families of IPv6 sensor network nodes and gateways (6LoWPAN) require tiny form factor, low power consumption, industrial temperature range and low cost," said Arnault Fontebride, Chief Technical Officer of Arago Systems. "The function and flexibility of the MachXO2 PLD in the small, rugged, easy-to-manufacture 32 QFN package is a combination that fits perfectly into our demanding industrial requirements."

The MachXO2 PLD family's unique system integration benefits drive its widespread adoption in a broad range of low density applications that require general purpose I/O expansion, interface bridging and power-up management functions. Built-in system functions include hardened implementations of widely used I2C and SPI interfaces and a timer/counter in the Embedded Function Block (EFB), providing up to 429 Look Up Tables (LUT) of pre-designed, pre-verified functionality. Engineers at Arago Systems implemented the I2C interfaces in their Wisnet products, saving valuable design effort and reducing time to market.

"The widespread adoption of the MachXO2 PLD family in system and consumer applications reflects our customers' enthusiastic acceptance of low cost, low power, non-volatile PLDs to quickly bring their products to rapidly evolving markets," said Shakeel Peera, Lattice Director of Strategic Marketing. "The addition of the 32 QFN package to the MachXO2 portfolio promises to broaden its application in space-constrained, low power applications, including consumer, communications, computing, industrial and medical."

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 p

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 E


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.
