Vectron International & Knowles Electronics Partners with SiTime Corporation

Vectron International and Knowles Electronics today issues a joint announcement that they have entered into a strategic partnership with SiTime Corporation. The partnership, which includes a cash investment by Vectron and Knowles, brings together three world class companies with the goal of driving unprecedented growth in MEMS Timing into the $4B Frequency Control Products (FCP) market.

Speaking from Knowles's headquarters in Itasca IL, Knowles CEO Jeff Niew said: "I am delighted to announce this strategic partnership. Knowles Electronics has long been known as an innovator and a leader in MEMS microphones and we look forward to bring the same level of success to the SiTime family of MEMS timing products."

Rick Hajec, President of Vectron International, added: "Vectron has been committed to bringing innovative timing devices to the Communications, Industrial and Military/Space markets for over 50 years. We have closely followed advancements in MEMS Timing technology over the last decade and believe that SiTime's product performance is poised to disrupt the timing industry and enable new market growth. We are excited by the prospect of bringing this compelling technology to all of our customers around the world."

In response to the announcement, Rajesh Vashist, CEO of SiTime, said: "SiTime is revolutionizing the timing market with our innovative silicon MEMS and analog technology. Our leadership products have been adopted by major OEMs and ODMs worldwide, resulting in shipments of 120 Million units. Today, SiTime's products are used in a broad range of applications that span cameras to wireless base stations. We are extremely excited about this partnership as it enables Knowles' and Vectron's customers to use SiTime's Silicon MEMS timing products. Along with SiTime, Knowles–Vectron's leadership position in consumer and precision timing markets is a potent combination that will accelerate the transformation of the timing industry."

As part of the agreement, both Vectron International and Knowles Electronics will sell MEMS timing products through their own direct sales channels, as well as support SiTime with future product developments. Other terms of the agreement were not disclosed.

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. 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.
