Critical Link Joins Texas Instruments’ Elite Design House Network

Critical Link, a Syracuse-based electronics product development company, today announced that the company has been selected as a member of the Texas Instruments (TI) Elite Design House Network,  a small group of independent companies offering system design, development, prototyping and manufacturing services to customers worldwide. For more information, please visit: Critical Link-MityDSP TI Elite Design House.

“We are proud to accept TI’s invitation to join this prestigious network,” said Critical Link vice president Tom Catalino.  “As a partner of long-standing, we look forward to strengthening our relationship with TI by providing leading-edge digital and analog product design services to our customers.”

Critical Link features TI digital signal processors (DSPs) in its MityDSP® family, a highly-configurable, TI DSP-based, very small form-factor module optimized for custom data collection and processing for a wide range of audio, industrial and video applications.  Critical Link is also a member of the TI Developer Network.

“As TI launched the Elite Design House Network, we looked for well-established companies designing with TI’s analog, embedded processor, low-power wireless and logic components, to develop successful application-based solutions for customers, and Critical Link clearly fit the criterion,” said Michael Sharpless, TI Worldwide Business Development Manager, Design House Network. “We also wanted to ensure that our Design House members had compelling technical expertise in applications that are important to our worldwide customers. Critical Link’s design and development experience in audio, instrumentation, scientific and control applications really stood out for us.”

As an Elite Design House Network member, Critical Link will deploy its extensive design and implementation knowledge with TI products to help customers more rapidly and cost-effectively bring innovative electronics products to market.

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.
