Commencing the Mass-Production of Combined Bluetooth®/Wi-Fi Modules Made Smaller with our In-house Internal Mounting Technology

Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has commenced the mass-production of combined Bluetooth® (hereinafter known as BT) /Wi-Fi modules supporting Snapdragon™ S4 MSM8960 3G/LTE multi-mode processers*1 manufactured by Qualcomm Incorporated using internal mounting technology. The use of our in-house internal mounting technology has enabled us to reduce the mounting space of this module by between 25% and 50% over regular discrete modules.

This product will be placed on exhibit during CEATEC JAPAN 2012 held at Makuhari Messe, Chiba Prefecture, between October 2 and 6, 2012.

The rapidly-expanding smart phone market requires an increasing number of electrical components to be mounted into phones due to high-functionalization, and at the same time there is a growing demand for high-density components that require less space so that high-capacity batteries can be installed. In order to meet these market requirements, Murata Manufacturing has combined our in-house internal mounting technology and ceramic multi-layer technology (LTCC*2 boards) to establish circuit board technology that enables high-density mounting, and since March of this year we have been mass-producing between 5 million and 7million BT/Wi-Fi modules per month.

And, now we have also commenced the mass-production of BT/Wi-Fi modules supporting Snapdragon™ S4 MSM8960 3G/LTE multi-mode processers manufactured by Qualcomm Incorporated.

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…
