Wi2Wi Launches Android for its Products

Wi2Wi, Inc., a leader in Wireless System-in-Package (SIP), module, and subsystems for embedded applications, has launched Android for its new and existingproducts.Android drivers are now available for leading embedded processors for W2CBW0015 New Ultra-Small SiP-Product featuring 802.11b/g/n-WiFi & Bluetooth-3.0, as well as legacy W2CBW003 802.11b/g-WiFi & Bluetooth-2.0 and W2SW0001 802.11b/g-WiFi.
Android was first released by Google in November 2007, as an Operating System (OS) targeted at smart phones & later tablets.  Android’s success has been phenomenal.  In just a few years it’s become the most popular OS for smart phones, shipping on more than half of the phones worldwide at a rate of well over 100 million annually.

Android has much to offer in embedded applications beyond phones & specifically for Wi2Wi’s Non-Consumer markets. Tens of millions of handsets run essentially the same Android stack that an Industrial/Medical or a Smart-Home/Building device will run. There is a huge pool of users and a large community of software developers involved in more than 100,000 applications are currently available for Android.
Wi2Wi’s focused business strategy on Major-Premium-Markets combined withits solid execution have resulted in a significant number of customer-wins in its core markets of Industrial/Medical, Smart Home/Building, & Government.
“Android is an excellent fit for devices that require wireless connectivity, graphical data displays, and intuitive user interactions, and thus for a potentially significant number of Wi2Wi’s future customers in our core markets.”   Wi2Wi’s CEO Dr. Reza Ahy noted, “It is a complete operating system, middleware layer, and application layer that runs on top of a Linux foundation. It already has strong device and communication protocol support, and there is a huge inventory of Android applications that add functionality and open these devices up to back-end, instantly-deployable solutions.”

Wi2Wi will be completing Android support for its main products in 2012.   Android can provide capabilities such as:  Application framework enabling reuse and replacement of components.Virtual machine optimized for portable/mobile devices.Integrated browser based on the open source WebKit engine. Optimized graphics powered by a custom 2D graphics library. SQLite for structured data storage. Media support for common audio, video, and still image formats (MPEG4, H.264, MP3, AAC, AMR, JPG, PNG, and GIF).Android provides a rich development environment including a device emulator, tools for debugging, memory,performance profiling, and a plug-in for the Eclipse IDE, valuable for some of Wi2Wi’s markets.

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 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. 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…
