Altera First in Industry to Achieve Production Rollout of All 28-nm FPGA Families

Altera Corporation (NASDAQ: ALTR) today announced it is shipping in production all three of its 28-nm FPGA families, including Stratix® V, Arria® V and Cyclone® V devices. Altera achieves this industry milestone with the latest shipment of the largest Cyclone V FPGA in its low-cost, low-power product family. With this announcement, Altera maintains its technology leadership at 28-nm by being first to deliver production-qualified, optimized solutions across its entire portfolio of high-end, midrange, and low-cost FPGAs, designed to meet the diverse product design and differentiation requirements of customers.

“Customers today are looking to get their solutions to volume production as quickly as possible to accelerate adoption and revenue,” said Patrick Dorsey, senior director of component product marketing at Altera. “Altera’s focus on enabling production support across all 28-nm families with tailored process technologies, architecture and transceiver technology enables our customers to move rapidly to production with optimized cost, performance and low power.”

Cyclone V FPGAs

Developed on TSMC’s 28-nm Low Power (28LP) process, the Cyclone V family provides customers the lowest power and lowest cost at optimal performance levels needed for today’s high-volume, cost-sensitive applications. The family also includes variants with an integrated dual-core ARM®-based hard processor system (HPS) that deliver 40 percent lower total power versus the previous generation. Other features of Cyclone V include:
  •     the industry’s absolute lowest-power serial transceivers, with 88-mW power consumption per channel;
  •     800-Mbps DDR3 with integrated hard memory controllers;
  •     PCI Express® (PCIe®) Gen2 hard intellectual property (IP) blocks with multifunction support enabling over 4,000-MIPS processing performance for under 1.8 W.
The Cyclone V family also offers the widest density range of 28-nm FPGAs effective for industrial, wireless, wireline, military and automotive applications.

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.
