TI FPD-Link III Chipset Streamlines Video and Data Interface for Megapixel Driver Assist Cameras

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced the DS90UB913Q serializer and DS90UB914Q deserializer, the newest additions to its FPD-Link III automotive-grade chipset family. The SerDes chipset provides a seamless video and data interface to megapixel driver assist camera modules, with no software overhead and fewer wires, resulting in reduced power consumption, cost and weight. These system-level SerDes enhancements are accelerating the adoption of camera safety systems in the mid- and entry-level vehicle segments. Applications include front-view camera for collision avoidance and traffic sign/pedestrian recognition, rear-view camera for backup protection, and surround-view cameras for parking assistance. For more information and to order samples, visit www.ti.com/ds90ub913q-pr.

Camera systems have become an important automotive safety component, typically combining multiple camera modules with advanced image analysis to help drivers monitor road conditions, detect hazards and avoid collisions. Automotive safety system designers can use TI's FPD-Link III SerDes chipsets to connect cameras and displays to an electronic control unit (ECU) with thinner, more flexible cabling.

Key features and benefits of the DS90UB913Q and DS90UB914Q:
  •     Smallest serializer for ultra-compact megapixel camera modules: DS90UB913Q features 25-mm2 footprint, with 10-MHz to 100-MHz pixel clock and 10- and 12-bit pixel depth.
  •     Industry's first adaptive receiver EQ compensates cable loss: DS90UB914Q automatically adapts EQ gain, compensating for dynamic and long-term changes in cable loss.
  •     Fast response time increases driver safety: Continuous, bidirectional control channel on a single twisted pair cable provides low latency for precise multi-camera synchronization.
  •     Lower-cost cable assemblies: Lower serial line rates of up to 1.4 Gbps drive down system costs.
  •     System flexibility: DS90UB914Q's integrated 2:1 multiplexer allows the ECU video processor to select content from two camera sources.
  •     Supports heat-exposed installations: The SerDes chipset operates over the -40 degrees C to 105 degrees C temperature range.
The DS90UB913Q and DS90UB914Q can be combined with other automotive vision control building blocks, including the TMS320DM8148 (DM8148) automotive vision processor; LM22671 42-V, 500-mA SIMPLE SWITCHER® step-down voltage regulator; and LP38693 500-mA LDO regulator.

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.
