Semtech Features Gennum Video Products, World’s Longest-Reach SDI (Serial Digital Interface) Equalizer and World’s Largest Crosspoint at NAB 2012

Semtech Corporation (Nasdaq: SMTC), a leading supplier of analog and mixed-signal semiconductors, today announced it will showcase the most comprehensive, end-to-end portfolio of broadcast SDI video solutions available. This will be the first demonstration of the Gennum product line following Semtech’s acquisition of Gennum Corporation in March 2012. Semtech’s Gennum product line will be demonstrated at booth #N411, in Las Vegas next week at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) exhibition. Demonstrations will include the new GS3480 cable driver platform, the GS3440 long-reach adaptive equalizer platform, video optical module solutions and the industry-leading GX3290 video crosspoint platform.

In addition, Semtech will be hosting an invitation-only technology suite, demonstrating its next generation broadcast SDI technology platform.

“We are very excited to have the Gennum product line as part of the Semtech product offering and we are firmly committed to continued excellence and market leadership in broadcast SDI solutions,” said Mohan Maheswaran, Chief Executive Officer of Semtech Corporation.

“For more than 20 years, the Gennum brand has been the SDI solution for customers. The dedicated focus on innovative broadcast SDI technology and best-in-class application support uniquely position Semtech’s Gennum Video platforms to deliver industry-leading solutions to our broadcast customers and their real world applications,” said Gary Beauchamp, Senior Vice President & General Manager, Gennum Product Group. “Combined with Semtech, we can now offer our broadcast customers additional power, protection, touch sensing and wireless solutions.”

Semtech will showcase continued leadership in broadcast semiconductor technology with the Gennum portfolio of advanced solutions for the most demanding broadcast applications. Some of these applications include broadcast routers, multiviewers, cameras, distribution amplifiers, monitors, and satellite receivers.

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…
