ON Semiconductor Selected by CVRx for Advanced Implantable Device Used in the Treatment of HypertensionChinese

ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ONNN), a premier supplier of high- performance silicon solutions for energy efficient electronics, announced today that CVRx, a market-leading developer of proprietary active implantable technology to treat high blood pressure, is using its technology and manufacturing services. CVRx recently launched the Barostim neo™ – the company’s second-generation implantable anti-hypertensive barostimulation device – in Europe.

ON Semiconductor’s extensive experience in designing and manufacturing analog, digital and mixed-signal semiconductor solutions for a wide range of medical applications helped CVRx achieve the required reliability and device performance during extensive pre-production testing. In addition, the use of ON Semiconductor design kits and intellectual property, as well as its layout and foundry services, compressed the development cycle.

The Barostim neo contains three ON Semiconductor devices. Two custom application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs) include a high-voltage analog C5 process device and a digital control ASIC manufactured using ON Semiconductor’s I3T process, which supports digital integration, combined with mixed analog and smart power high-voltage structures. Also housed within the compact Barostim neo is an ON Semiconductor 8 megabit medical memory ASSP. All three devices achieve low-power operation to support long operational life – a key requirement for implantable medical devices.

“Our selection of ON Semiconductor for the development of our latest implantable device for treating hypertension has had multiple benefits,” said Joe DuPay, vice president of Research & Development and Operations, CVRx, Inc. “By combining our own core expertise with ON Semiconductor’s knowledge, experience and product longevity support in the demanding medical semiconductor market, we shortened the product development cycle while setting the highest standards in very low-power, reliable design.”

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

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

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.
