TI Unveils LDO Linear Voltage Regulator with Industry's Lowest Noise at Low Frequency

Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today introduced a high current, ultra-low noise, low dropout (LDO) voltage regulator that achieves the industry's lowest noise at low frequency. The 1-A TPS7A4700 LDO linear regulator features less than 4.17-uVrms output noise over the 10-Hz to 100-kHz bandwidth, eliminating the need for expensive and bulky filtering in a wide range of high-performance applications, including telecom, industrial, RF, medical, avionics and military.

TI's new TPS7A4700 LDO uses a unique feature that enables the setting of any output voltage rail in 100-mV increments with simple printed circuit board (PCB) layout changes. This eliminates the need for expensive, high accuracy, external feedback resistors, which saves board area and reduces component count when compared to existing solutions.

With digital control methods such as I2C or PMBus, the user can program the output voltage by selecting to either ground or open the binary-weighted device pins. See the application note for more information: www.ti.com/tps7a7200-pran.

For systems where both positive and negative voltage rails are required, the TPS7A4700 can be used together with TI's -36V/-1A TPS7A3301 LDO linear regulator. Watch a video on how to pick an LDO for noise-sensitive applications: www.ti.com/ldo-prv.

Key features and benefits of the TPS7A4700 LDO regulator
  •     Industry's lowest noise at low frequency eliminates the need for expensive and bulky filtering in high-performance applications.
  •     Wide bandwidth and high power supply rejection (PSR) allow effective filtering of DC/DC switching supplies running at higher frequencies.
  •     36-V input voltage rating allows use in systems running 12-V and 24-V buses with enough headroom to withstand high-voltage transients, eliminating the need for additional suppression circuitry.
  •     Unique feature provides any output voltage rail in 100-mV increments, eliminating the need for expensive external feedback resistors.
Availability, packaging and pricing

The TPS7A4700 is available in volume now from TI and its authorized distributors. Offered in a 20-pin, 5-mm by 5-mm QFN package, the suggested retail price is $2.10 in 1,000-unit 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 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.
