Hittite Introduces Two New Clock Generators with 3.3V Operation

Hittite Microwave Corporation, the world class supplier of complete MMIC based solutions for communication & military markets, has launched two exciting new SMT packaged clock generators, the HMC1033LP6GE and the HMC1035LP6GE. Ideal for a wide range of high performance Clock and Timing applications, these devices deliver best-in-class jitter and industry-leading phase noise floor.

The HMC1033LP6GE and the HMC1035LP6GE expand the company's growing Clocks & Timing portfolio by offering programmable frequency synthesis from 25 MHz to 2.5 GHz in both integer and fractional relationships to their reference clocks. The HMC1033LP6GE is ideal for clocking DSP, FPGA and high performance processors as well as physical layer devices, and operates from 25 MHz to 550 MHz. The HMC1035LP6GE is designed to meet the stringent requirements of high speed data converters (ADC/DAC) with excellent phase noise floor performance of -162 dBc/Hz, and operates from 25 MHz to 2.5 GHz. Both devices require only a single 3.3V supply rail and achieve up to 33% reduction in power consumption compared to previous solutions. The devices feature a flexible output buffer, which can be programmed via the serial programming interface (SPI) to support 12 different output amplitude settings including those for LVDS-compatible, and LVPECL signaling. A proprietary 'Exact Frequency Mode' of operation reduces frequency errors in fractional-N synthesis mode while maintaining excellent noise and spur performance.

Both products offer two modes of operation to trade off performance in favor of reduced power consumption. These two modes are defined as "Power Priority" and "Performance Priority" and may be selected via the SPI registers. In the "Power Priority" mode, the HMC1035LP6GE sources 173 mA typical current from the 3.3V supply with 2.5 GHz LVDS-compatible outputs, and in "Performance Priority" mode, the device achieves an integrated phase jitter performance of 100 fs RMS typical (12 kHz to 20 MHz integration bandwidth, 2.5GHz outputs), and improves interface Bit-Error-Rates (BER ) and eye diagram metrics. Both devices also produce an excellent 49-51% output duty cycle on their differential output.

The HMC1033LP6GE and the HMC1035LP6GE may be used to generate the sample clocks for high speed data converters (ADCs & DACs) in cellular infrastructure and fiber optic applications. With their very low phase noise floor, the clock generators improve the SNR (Signal-to-Noise-Ratio) performance of data converters by providing very clean sample and device clocks.

The HMC1033LP6GE and the HMC1035LP6GE are each assembled in 6 x 6 mm plastic leadless surface mount packages, and support operation over the -40 °C to +85 °C temperature range. Evaluation Kits with easy-to-use USB programming capability and GUI-based programming software to set the desired register configuration are available from Hittite.

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.
