TI Enhances Audio Headset Experience with Detection and Configuration Switch IC

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced a new audio headset detection and configuration switch integrated circuit (IC) that enables universal headset support for audio applications in a single chip. By integrating the automatic detection and switching function in a single device, the TS3A225E eliminates detection, leakage and click-pop issues caused by using discrete components in end-equipment, such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, audio docks and home audio applications. For more information and to order samples, visit www.ti.com/ts3a225e-pr.

The TS3A225E works seamlessly to extend the functionality of best-in-class TI audio codecs, such as TLV320AIC3262 and TLV320AIC3212. For customers who prefer only a 2x2 crosspoint switch functionality without headset-type detection, TI also offers the reduced-cost TS3A26746E. The TI switch portfolio also consists of other audio, video, USB, LAN and DDR switches available at TI website.

Key features and benefits
  •     Enhances the end user's experience: supports three-prong (without microphone) and four-prong (with microphone) audio headsets from all manufacturers.
  •     Eases system design: detects the configuration of the microphone and ground pins on a four-prong headset and routes them appropriately via a 2x2 crosspoint switch.
  •     More control over system operation and debug: reports headset information over I2C interface.
  •     Prevents audio signal distortion: 66-percent lower on-resistance (100 mOhms) for the ground switch compared to the competition.
  •     Easier mounting and routing in the system: available in both QFN and WCSP packages.

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 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.

TURCK’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
