Active-Semi expands support for USB Type-C, USB-PD and Qualcomm Quick Charge™ 2.0 applications with 7 new DC-DC power management ICs

Active-Semi, Inc. announced today further expansion of their high-power DC-DC power management IC portfolio with the ACT452x family of ICs to support USB Type-C, USB-PD and Qualcomm® Quick Charge™ 2.0/3.0 based end-products and applications. The ACT4525/26/27/28 and ACT4529 ICs offer single-IC solutions for up to 36W of maximum power and provide customers with proven turnkey solutions for reduced time to market. Reducing system footprint by as much as 40%, and with advanced integrated features for USB auto-detect and built-in QC 2.0 decoder these ICs offer the lowest cost solution. The ACT452x family of ICs can also work with additional load switch controllers to provide augmented functionality in end-products. Target applications include car chargers (CLAs), mobile and laptop applications, and peripherals that interface with these devices.

"We are excited at the new offerings in our portfolio of scalable and highly efficient power management controllers for USB Type-C, USB-PD and Qualcomm® QC 2.0/3.0 applications," says Dr. Hong Mao, Director of DC/DC Products. "These ICs along with the reference designs and evaluation kits greatly accelerate our customers� product development cycle and market release in the rapidly growing USB Type-C applications market."

"Active-Semi's new line of ACT452x DC-DC converters offer a high level of integration that will enable the rapid development of car charging solutions for the widely varied portable device charging market," said Cameron Boone, Senior Electrical Engineer at Griffin Technology. "Griffin is a primary player in this market, and we are confident Active-Semi's new line of converters will offer unique solutions for our development of future products."

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.

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’s BL Compact Family Collects Analog and Digital Signals at the Source

TURCK’s BL Compact system is a revolutionary modular I/O solution for collecting a variety of signals in a single, rugged node on a network. Rather than routing all signals through a control cabinet, this device makes it possible to obtain analog, digital, thermocouple, RTD, serial, RFID or a mixture of signal types in a compact, machine-mountable device over DeviceNet™, CANopen and PROFIBUS ®.

Up to two signals types can be combined in any combination in the BL Compact system, including RFID and analog, digital and serial—and more. The BL Compact system may be customized to suit a user’s specific needs, so that devices may be added to an existing network and signals may be gathered on the machine without an enclosure. This drop-in solution can be used to connect up to 16 devices—drastically reducing the time it takes to run wires for each device back to the control cabinet and the potential for wiring errors.

The BL Compact system is currently available with four, eight or 16 ports i…
