ARM announces support for STMicroelectronics STM32 F0 series in the MDK-ARM Development Kit

ARM® today announced full support within the ARM Keil™ MDK-ARM™ development kit for STMicroelectronics' new STM32 F0 series of devices.

The STM32 F0 series has been announced at Embedded World in Nuremberg, Germany, and is the first STM32 series based on the ARM Cortex™-M0 processor. The product's low-power design and low cost make it suitable for application fields that were traditionally occupied by 8- or 16-bit MCUs such as medical diagnostics equipment, white goods or intelligent sensor applications.

The long-standing cooperation between STMicroelectronics and ARM enables engineers to immediately use the MDK-ARM development kit in projects based on the STM32 F0 series. The MDK-ARM development kit combines the state of the art ARM C/C++ Compiler, the µVision4™ IDE and debugger as well as advanced trace functionality and the RTX RTOS in one easy to use package. The MDK-Professional Middleware libraries provide excellent support for the sophisticated peripherals of the STM32 F1, F2, and F4 series, enabling developers to concentrate on the unique features of their embedded applications.

The STM32 F0 device support is included in the current version 4.23 of the MDK-ARM development kit.

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…
