Lattice Launches Free "@MachXO2 Speed" Seminar Series

Lattice Semiconductor Corporation (NASDAQ: LSCC) today announced the "@MachXO2 Speed" seminar series in partnership with its worldwide network of sales representatives and distribution partners. The seminar series includes hands-on technical training and live hardware demonstrations that focus on the innovative MachXO2™ PLD features that speed the design process and reduce time-to-market. The seminar's hands-on hardware demonstrations utilize the versatile, battery-powered MachXO2 Pico Development Kit, which is discounted to $29 for the remainder of 2012.

The initial @MachXO2 Speed seminar focuses on nine new reference and demonstration designs that enhance the usability of the built-in I2C, SPI and User Flash Memory functions in the low cost, low power MachXO2 PLD family's unique Flash memory-based Embedded Function Block (EFB). New technical features include commented, pre-verified RTL and C code that is easily re-usable to help engineers get a head start on their own design implementations.

The @MachXO2 Speed seminars are available worldwide from Lattice and its network of sales and distribution partners. "The MachXO2 Embedded Function Block simplifies the design process for our programmable logic customers," said Rita Megling, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Lattice distribution partner NuHorizons Electronics. "We look forward to mobilizing our field applications engineering team to help our customers complete their PLD designs faster than ever."

The @MachXO2 Speed seminars cover a wide variety of topics, including:
  •     I2C-Slave (Lattice reference design number RD1124)
  •     SPI-Slave (RD1125)
  •     UFM access (RD1126)
  •     Embedded Programming (RD1129)
  •     I2C Master with I2C Slave (Lattice demonstration design number UG55)
  •     SPI Master with SPI Slave (UG56)
  •     Master I2C & SPI Using 'C' and the LatticeMico8™ Microcontroller (UG54)
  •     Programming via the Wishbone Bus Interface (UG57)
  •     Low Power Control (UG58)

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 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…
