Texas Instruments simplifies cloud connectivity to the Internet of Things (IoT) with Amazon Web Services IoT

Texas Instruments (TI) (NASDAQ: TXN) today announced its SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® wireless microcontroller (MCU) easily and securely connects IoT endpoints to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud for remote management and data analysis. The AWS IoT Software Development Kit (SDK) is now available for TI's low-power SimpleLink™ Wi-Fi® CC3200 wireless MCU LaunchPad™ kit, enabling developers to quickly establish a connection to AWS IoT services and immediately begin development on their IoT designs.

TI's SimpleLink Wi-Fi CC3200 wireless MCU LaunchPad is an evaluation kit for the industry's first single-chip, low-power Wi-Fi solution with a built-in programmable MCU. The CC3200 LaunchPad includes a temperature sensor and an accelerometer, but through add-on BoosterPack™ plug-in boards, it enables easy integration of additional sensors to help developers prototype their IoT applications. Developers can now leverage the SDK to store and analyze sensor data, trigger actions and interact with their cloud-connected designs and products from mobile and web applications.

"We are pleased our customers can now leverage AWS IoT to build cloud-connected products for the Internet of Things on a global scale," said Avner Goren, General Manager of Strategic Marketing, Embedded Processing at TI. "AWS IoT helps TI expand on its commitment to easily add embedded Wi-Fi and Internet connectivity to a wide-range of home, industrial and consumer electronics."

Semiconductor innovations are at the foundation of the IoT connecting people, things and cloud. TI innovations are enabling the IoT by expanding from wired connections to wireless connectivity, driving down power to enable battery-operated connected products. Additionally, TI is making development easier by providing certified modules and pre-integrated cloud connectivity software stacks.

TI has the broadest portfolio of building blocks for IoT nodes and gateways spanning wired and wireless connectivity, microcontrollers, processors, sensing technology, power management and analog solutions – along with an ecosystem of cloud service providers to help our customers get connected to the cloud faster. TI is adding AWS to its IoT Cloud ecosystem – a select group of organizations that support a wide variety of TI devices to enable a quick and easily connection to the cloud.

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…

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.
