Supertex (Nasdaq GS: SUPX), a recognized leader in high voltage analog and mixed signal integrated circuits (ICs), today introduced the HV7331, a four channel, monolithic, high voltage, high speed pulse generator IC with integrated fast return-to-zero (RTZ) FETs. The high voltage, high speed IC is designed for use in portable medical diagnostic ultrasound devices, but can also be used in non-destructive testing (NDT) applications.

The IC brings together controller logic interface circuitry, level translators,
MOSFET gate drive buffers, and high voltage and high current P- and N-channel
MOSFETs as the output stage for each channel. HV7331 features matched delay
times of +/-2.5ns, guaranteed output of over 2.0A for each channel with a +/-70V pulse swing, and up to 20 MHz operating frequency. Integrated regulators for its gate drivers makes PCB layout easier by eliminating the need for two floating voltage supplies.

“With four high speed output channels in a compact, 9x9mm QFN package, HV7331 is optimized for space-constrained, portable, medical ultrasound imaging applications as well as non-destructive test imaging applications,” states Stephen Lin, Vice President of Marketing for Supertex. “The high voltage MOSFET output stages for each of HV7331’s channels can deliver pulses up to +/-70V with a typical current capability of +/-2.0A.” The HV7331 is available in a 64-lead QFN package (HV7331K6-G). The part is RoHS compliant. Samples are available from stock. Lead-time for production quantities is 4-6 weeks. Pricing is US$12.01 each for the HV7331K6-G in 1K quantities.

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…
