EMC Components: Thin-Film Common-Mode Filter with the World’s Highest Cutoff Frequency

TDK Corporation has developed a new thin-film common-mode filter with the world’s highest cutoff frequency of 10 GHz*, enabling it to efficiently reduce high frequency noise emissions, especially in the 5 GHz band. The common-mode insertion loss peak of the new TCM0806T-060-2P filter is thus much higher than that of existing common-mode filters, which achieve their best noise suppression in the range from several hundred MHz to 2.5 GHz. The high cutoff frequency of the new filter ensures that no signal degradation occurs when the filter is used in communication circuits for high-speed interfaces such as Thunderbolt, USB 3.0, and Serial-ATA (Gen III), making the thin-film common-mode filter suitable for sophisticated electronic devices with high signal transfer speeds. The new component, which offers a typical impedance of 6 Ω at 100 MHz, measures in at 0.85 x 0.65 x 0.40 mm3 (EIA case size 0806). Mass production is scheduled to start from August 2012.

In recent years, digital electronic devices have evolved towards higher performance, multi-functionality, and higher data handling volumes. Consequently, the speed of signal transfer has increased as well. As a result the noise components generated within such a device are generally of a higher frequency as well. At the same time, space is limited and components need to be extremely small and thin for higher mounting density. Since multiple signal paths exist in close proximity in a single device, interference from one may affect the signal in another, leading to signal quality deterioration known as internal contamination.

TDK harnessed its high frequency expertise and proprietary thin-film patterning technology to create a miniature component that features extremely compact and highly precise coil patterns and is thus able to offer the performance demanded in high-speed digital devices.

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.
