Atmel XMEGA AVR XPLAIN Kits - Now in Stock

Equinox Technologies are pleased to announce that we now stock the XMEGA-A1 Xplained kit  which supports rapid evaluation / prototyping of Atmel ATxmega128A1 XMEGA AVR based microcontroller designs.

The XMEGA-A1 Xplained kit features a low-cost demonstration board based on the ATxmega128A1 XMEGA AVR microcontroller. This board allows for quick evaluation of the XMEGA microcontroller family without requiring any additional hardware. It has an on-board programmer based on an AT90USB 1287 microcontroller which is pre-loaded with firmware allowing the ATxmega128A1 device to be programmed via the 2-wire PDI programming interface.

The XMEGA-A1 Xplained kit features the ATxmega128A1 device which is a picoPower device optimized for the best possible combination of real time performance, integration and power efficiency. It is part of the 8/16-bit AVR XMEGA family of devices ranging from 44-100 pin, 16-256 KB of Flash program memory and 4-16 KB of SRAM. The XMEGA A1 Xplained kit features a separate board controller and UART/I2C bridge to USB to drive the USB port.

Main Features
  •     Compact evaluation / demonstration board for the Atmel XMEGA AVR microcontroller family
  •     Features ATxmega128A1 XMEGA AVR microcontroller device
  •     Features AT90USB1287 AVR microcontroller which is used as a USB-controlled XMEGA PDI programmer
  •     The ATxmega128A1 XMEGA AVR micrococontroller can be programmed via the 2-wire PDI interface using the AT90USB1287 microcontroller
  •     The ATxmega128A1 device can also be programmed via JTAG using an external JTAG programmer (not supplied)
  •     XPLAIN board is controlled via USB Port
  •     4 x push-buttons for evaluation purposes
  •     4 x LEDs for evaluaion purposes
  •     Most ATxmega128A1 port pins are brought out to I/O header connectors
  •     Example firmware available from the Atmel website
XMEGA Programming interfaces
  •     The ATxmega128A1 microcontroller can be programmed via the 2-wire PDI programming interface. This is performed using pre-loaded firmware in the AT90USB127 microcontroller.
  •     The ATxmega128A1 microcontroller can also be programmed via the JTAG interface. An external JTAG programmer (not supplied with this kit) is required. e.g. JTAG-ICE MK2 debugger.

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…
