Vishay Intertechnology Releases High-Frequency RF and Microwave Multilayer Ceramic Capacitors with High Q (≥ 2000) in 0402, 0603, and 0805 Case Sizes

Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. (NYSE: VSH) today introduced a new series of surface-mount multilayer ceramic chip capacitors (MLCCs) offering high self-resonance, a high Q factor of ≥ 2000, and a low dissipation factor of ≤ 0.05 % for operation in high-frequency commercial applications.

With their low dissipation factor, devices in the VJ HIFREQ series are optimized for filter and matching networks, and amplifier and DC blocking circuits. The MLCCs reduce signal loss and energy consumption in power amplifier modules, VoIP networks, cellular base stations, GPS systems, and satellite, WiFi (802.11), and WiMAX (802.16) wireless communication.

Allowing designers to meet the size requirements of their specific application, the VJ HIFREQ series is offered in 0402, 0603, and 0805 case sizes, with broad working voltages from 25 VDC to 250 VDC, and wide capacitance ranges from 1 pF to 1.5 nF. The devices offer tight tolerances to ±0.1 pF, an excellent aging rate of 0 % per decade, and an operating temperature range of - 55 °C to + 125 °C.

Manufactured in noble metal electrode technology (NME) with a wet build process, the capacitors are available with various RoHS-compliant termination finishes to meet the needs of the application. Available options are nickel barrier with 100% matte tin plate for reflow assembly (code “X”); silver-palladium for conductive epoxy assembly (code “E”); and non-magnetic for applications sensitive to magnetic interference (code “N”).

Also, for those applications that demand it, the product is offered with a lead-bearing (minimum 4 %) termination finish (code “L”)

Samples and production quantities of the new VJ HIFREQ MLCCs will be available in Q2 2012, with a lead time from 10 weeks FOB for larger orders.

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.

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’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…
