AK7719: New Micro-Power DSP for Both Hands-Free Voice Communications and Digital Audio Processing

AKM Semiconductor today introduced the AK7719, a very low power consumption digital signal processor (DSP) for portable devices. The AK7719 is highly effective for sound quality improvement of voice communications, music playback and sound recording functions. It has four digital interface ports, allowing a simple interface to existing audio system designs.

AKM's proprietary royalty-free algorithms for voice communications, including a two-microphone noise suppressor and echo canceller, enable highly audible phone calls with minimal noise. Clarity enhancement and bandwidth expansion algorithms that improve both voice transmission and reception are available for porting to the AK7719. Supporting wide-band signal processing, the AK7719 can be applied to VoIP applications. Additional functions other than those for voice calls, such as digital audio processing for music playback and microphone zooming that synchronizes a camera zoom for video recordings are also available. The AK7719 is capable of processing full-bandwidth digital audio (48kHz) or voice communications at 8kHz or 16kHz.

Programs are loaded into internal RAM via a serial interface from a microcontroller, allowing for seamless updates. For connecting to other audio devices including baseband processors, ACPU and Bluetooth modules, the serial voice interface supports MSB-first, LSB-first, I²S and PCM audio data formats. A power management function operated by clock inputs is an advantage for power saving. In narrowband hands-free voice processing mode, the AK7719 dissipates just 7.5mW, realizing long battery life for mobile phone applications.

The AK7719 is housed in a very small 25-pin CSP package (2.62mm x 2.93mm, 0.5mm pitch). It operates off of 1.8V and 1.2V power supplies.

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 E

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 p


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.
