Microchip Expands Zero-Drift Operational Amplifier Portfolio for Signal Conditioning, Instrumentation and Portable Sensor Applications

Microchip Technology Inc., a leading provider of microcontroller, analog and Flash-IP solutions, today broadened its portfolio of zero-drift operational amplifiers (op amps) with the debut of the MCP6V11 and MCP6V31 single amplifiers.  Operating with a single supply voltage as low as 1.6V and a quiescent current as low as 7.5 µA, these ultra-high-performance devices offer some of the industry’s lowest quiescent current for the given bandwidth without sacrificing the optimal performance essential for portable applications in the consumer, industrial and medical markets.

With an aging world population in need of new therapies and early diagnostic tools, devices like the MCP6V11/31 enable the development of portable medical products integrated with higher efficiency, and signal conditioning hardware and software, which is critical to accommodate the continued push for lower costs and faster times to market.  As well, designers of industrial applications—such as portable sensor conditioning and instrumentation requiring low power, smaller form factors, temperature considerations and cost-management—can benefit from the optimized performance, low quiescent current and low operating voltage made possible by the MCP6V11/31 op amps.

Employing Microchip’s advanced CMOS technology, the devices require less current to operate the amplifier while simultaneously delivering longer battery life and minimal thermal-related challenges.  The self-correcting architecture of the MCP6V11/31 family provides a maximum input offset voltage of 8 µV for ultra-low-offset and low-offset drift, enabling maximum accuracy across time and temperature.  The MCP6V11 offers 80 kHz of gain bandwidth product, with a low typical quiescent current of only 7.5 µA; while the MCP6V31 provides 300 kHz of gain bandwidth product, coupled with a low typical quiescent current of 23 µA.  Additionally, the MCP6V11 and MCP6V31 single amplifiers are both available in small 5-pin SOT-23 and 5-pin SC-70 packages, enabling minimal use of board space, ease of system design and reduced cost.

“Microchip continues to leverage its expertise in high-precision amplifier design, with the addition of the MCP6V11 and MCP6V31 zero-drift op amps, which provide an extremely low-power, small-package alternative to Microchip’s existing portfolio,” said Bryan J. Liddiard, marketing vice president of Microchip’s Analog & Interface Products Division.  “These devices raise the bar to a new level of ultra-precision, low-power amplifier design that gives our customers a differentiator for their products while helping them maximize resources and gain a competitive edge.”

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.

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.
