Silex Technology Collaborates with Freescale Semiconductor to Provide Wi-Fi for Next-Generation i.MX 6 Processors

Silex Technology, a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today announced plug-and-play Wi-Fi connectivity solutions for Freescale Semiconductor i.MX 6 series processors. This technology combination which includes the Silex SX-SDCAN-2830BT was demonstrated at the Freescale Technology Forum June 18 -20, 2012 in San Antonio, Texas.

“Wi-Fi connectivity is a key feature for customers designing products based on our i.MX 6 series processors," said Rajeev Kumar, i.MX product line manager for Freescale Semiconductor. "Silex delivers outstanding technology engineered to help our i.MX 6 customers differentiate and win in competitive markets.”

“Silex is proud to be the Freescale recommended Wi-Fi solutions provider," said Keith Sugawara, vice president of Business Development at Silex Technology America. "Our radio hardware modules are ideal for mid-tier companies who seek to reduce RF design costs and improve time to market."

Silex is a Qualcomm Atheros Authorized Design Center (ADC) who provides secure and high-reliability wireless solutions for device manufacturers that want to add Wi-Fi connectivity to portable devices for medical, printer, weights and measures, and other applications.

The Silex SX-SDCAN-2830BT 802.11a/b/g/n SDIO card module is the Freescale recommended solution for Wi-Fi connectivity. Freescale's i.MX 6 development platforms integrate a reference driver to minimize the engineering time and effort required to productize solutions such as Silex’s Wi-Fi technology.

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 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.
