Nuvoton Announces Its Super I/O Series IC for Industrial PC Applications – NCT6106D

Nuvoton, following the success of the W83627UHG family of devices, which have been highly regarded and widely adopted by the major industrial PC manufacturers worldwide, now proudly announces its next generation Super I/O controller, the NCT6106D. NCT6106D is the state-of-the-art Super I/O controller and most desirable for industrial PC applications.

NCT6106D provides 6 full-function UART, and each UART supports up to 128-byte FIFO, 9-bit mode, RS-485 auto flow control and optional 14.7456MHz external clock input for UART baud rate setting. Take the harsh operating environment that industrial PC applications may often encounter into consideration, NCT6106D itself can operate between -40 ℃ to +85 ℃. Meanwhile, NCT6106D provides an easy way for debug. It is able to decode Port80 value via LPC interface and output Port80 value via printer port or UART TX. For the Port80 value output via printer port, it only needs 2 7-segment LEDs to display it. For the Port80 value output via UART TX, it could cooperate with Nuvoton self-developed Port80 Analyzer AP or Port80 Analyzer debug card. Port80 Analyzer AP could display the Port80 value and the corresponding meaning on the other PC by connecting NCT6106D UART TX to the other PC. Port80 Analyzer debug card could show Port80 value directly because it has 2 7-segment LEDs on it. Furthermore, Health Manager is Nuvoton self-developed AP to help customers to reduce the developing efforts with user-friendly interface while using NCT6106D hardware monitor functions, especially fan control.

Contrary to the general perception, increasing number of industrial PC applications adopt the latest industry platform technologies. NCT6106D implements up-to-date features, such as Intel® PECI (Platform Environment Control Interface), AMD® SB-TSI interface, SMBus master, Intel® DSW (Deep Sleep Well) glue logic, and ErP (energy related products), a specification to further reduce the system power consumption while in S5 state nowadays. For the traditional legacy applications, in addition to UART, NCT6106D also supports Printer Port, FDC, KBC, CIR (consumer IR) and GPIO (general purpose I/O).

Nuvoton has enhanced the performance of system hardware monitoring functions through advanced IC research and design. The device’s dual current-source architecture provides improved temperature measurement accuracy. The fan speed control circuit is suitable for either DC- or PWM-fan. Nuvoton patented SMART FAN™ closed-loop fan speed control algorithms are also included. By monitoring temperature, voltage and fan speed (RPM) and controlling fan speed (RPM), the NCT6106D ensures efficiency and reliability of industrial PC applications.

Inheriting the abundant development experiences from Winbond, Nuvoton has been a major supplier of the key IC components for Desktop PC motherboards, Notebook PCs, Industrial / Embedded PCs and Servers markets. Nuvoton continues to devote itself to the development of creative IC components and to invest in the development of cost effective ICs with the latest features and the best performance.

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

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

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.
