ON Semiconductor Supports Next Generation High-Speed Interfaces with Low Quiescent Current 4- and 6-Channel Switches

ON Semiconductor Corporation (Nasdaq: ONNN), a premier supplier of high performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics has introduced two new multiple-channel differential switching ICs in single pole, double throw (SPDT) switch configurations for high frequency signals such as PCI Express 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 I/O signals. Target applications include notebook computers, desktop computers, servers and network storage equipment.

The NCN3612B is a 6-channel differential SPDT switch that supports 8 gigabits per second (Gbps) data transfer due to its high bandwidth. It has an on-state capacitance (CON) of 2.1 pF (typical) and an on-state resistance (RDSON) of 8 ohms (Ω) (typical). This is complemented by the NCN3411, which is a 4-channel differential switch also capable of supporting 8 Gbps operation. It has a CON of 2 pF (typical) and a RDSON of 7.5 Ω (typical). These attributes make the two new devices highly suited to routing PCI Express 3.0 and DisplayPort 1.2 I/O signals.

“Because of their intrinsically low CON and RDSON figures, the NCN3612B and NCN3411 offer both faster data edge rates and lower insertion losses,” said Thibault Kassir, director for Interface and Power Products at ON Semiconductor. “As a result, these devices deliver the signal integrity levels needed to support the latest high-speed interface standards now being specified for system designs.”

The NCN3612B has a power supply voltage range of 3 volts (V) to 3.6 V and draws a supply current of just 250 microamps (µA) (typical), while the NCN3411 has a power supply voltage range of 1.5 V to 2.0 V and draws a supply current of 200 µA. These new devices have an operational ambient temperature range of −40 °C to +85 °C.

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.

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’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
