THAT Corporation Expands Analog Engine® Series

THAT Corporation has announced that the 4320 series of Analog Engine dynamics processor ICs now includes a space saving 5 x 5 mm QFN package. This tiny QFN package saves over 55% on board space. The THAT 4320 is intended for use in companding noise reduction systems and can be configured for use in multi-band companders, limiters, AGCs and de-essers.

The THAT 4320 includes a high-performance voltage controlled amplifier, 4 op amps, a true-rms level detector and a proportional to absolute temperature (PTAT) voltage reference used to generate thermally compensated control voltages for threshold and gain settings. This single-chip Analog Engine operates from a single supply, from 16 V down to +4.5 V, and draws only 3.5 mA, making it well suited for both line powered and battery powered applications.

“Offering the THAT 4320 in a QFN package is in direct response to our customers that are designing wireless microphones, wireless instruments and in-ear monitors where space is at a premium,” commented Les Tyler, President THAT Corporation. “By adding more options to the 4320 we’re enabling designers to truly differentiate their products through the transparent sound of the Blackmer™ VCA coupled with its accurate, wide-range true-rms level detector.”

Priced at $5.48 in 1k quantities, the 4320 is available now in both a 28-pin QSOP and a space-saving 5x5 mm 24-pin QFN.

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.
