NXP Introduces Dual LIN Transceiver for Smaller, Lighter and More Cost-Efficient Modules in the Car

NXP Semiconductors N.V. (NASDAQ: NXPI) – the world’s largest supplier of in-vehicle networking semiconductors – today announced the availability of the TJA1022, a dual LIN 2.2 transceiver that provides an interface between a LIN master/slave protocol controller and the physical bus in a LIN network. It combines two LIN transceivers into a single package, offering more compact, flexible and cost-efficient modules in the car. The TJA1022 is primarily intended for modules with multiple LIN sub-networks such as body control modules, gateway modules, and intelligent parking assistance that enhance passenger comfort and the overall driving experience.

“As the number of electronic control units in the car is growing, there is an increasing need for LIN nodes in networks, creating pressure for manufacturers to respond to larger system complexity,” says Toni Versluijs, vice president and general manager, In-Vehicle Networking, NXP Semiconductors. “We developed the TJA1022 in collaboration with major automotive manufacturing customers around the world, responding to their needs for a product which would offer more functionality in a smaller footprint.”

The TJA1022 offers module suppliers the possibility to further reduce design costs by eliminating the need for an external protection diode due to excellent intrinsic ESD protection of the transceivers. The TJA1022 is LIN 2.0, LIN 2.1, LIN 2.2 and SAE J2602-compliant, as well as compatible with K-Line. It is also fully software and pin-compatible with other NXP LIN products including the TJA1027, and thus supports a flexible, scalable platform approach.

For convenience, the new transceiver is available in two package variants: an SO14 package and an HVSON14 package. The HVSON (Plastic thermal enhanced very thin small outline package; no leads) packages are the next step in evolution of packages for automotive in-vehicle networking transceivers, while the leadless dark green RoHS (halogen free and Restriction of Hazardous Substances) packages are compliant with improved Automated Optical Inspection (AOI) capability. Both packages are automotive-qualified according to AEC-Q100 grade 1.

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…

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…


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.
