Melexis has an elevated current version of its MLX91208 series of programmable Hall-effect current sensors.T Optimised for the very high fields of hybrid and electric vehicle (HEV) applications, the MLX91208CAV can cope with up to 1000A of primary current. This device complements the existing MLX91208 products which cover low field and high field functions. Thanks to the proprietary integrated magnetic concentrator (IMC) technology employed, the sensors in the AEC-Q100-qualified MLX91208 series can accurately measure currentRead more
Survey highlights serious cuts in government-funded science R&D Civil service employees in science research say decline in government-funded science affects whole economy, according to a survey by the Prospect union. The survey found that 81% of civil servants, three-quarters of those in other public bodies, and 45% of those in the private sector stated that “cuts in public funding have affected R&D across the economy over the last five years”. All sectors have experienced significantRead more
Precision cables for testing millimetre-wave systems for 5G mobile research are available from China-based laboratory device company Nanjing Arance Electronics through its UK representative, Aspen Electronics. The low-loss precision test cables are designed for good VSWR and phase/flexure stability up to 67GHz. They are suitable to be used in 5G research labs with high frequency microwave vector network analysers. Research work in the UK and across Europe into the next generation mobile phone standard isRead more
Microchip PIC32 microcontrollers get FreeRTOS design tool There is now a version of FreeRTOS+Trace for Microchip’s PIC32 microcontrollers and MPLAB X IDE, thanks to a Swedish developer of RTOS visualization tools, Percepio AB. FreeRTOS+Trace is the standard trace analyser for FreeRTOS. It allows the developer to visualises run-time behaviour of their embedded software, and it provides more than 20 views and these views are interconnected in helpful ways. According to the supplier, this will “allow viewing the trace fromRead more

The CVHD-957 is suitable for applications such as: Digital Audio Broadcasting (DAB) Professional CD audio equipment DACs and ADCs for HD audio. Developed frequencies are: 22.5792 MHz 24.576 MHz The company writes: Crystek’s Model CVHD-957 HCMOS VCXORead more
Google server farm Q2 server shipments grew 8% year-on-year, while revenue increased 7.2% from Q1 2014, says Gartner. “X86 server shipments increased 8.3% in the second quarter of 2015 and revenue grew 9%,” says Jeffrey Hewitt, research vice-president at Gartner. “RISC/Itanium Unix server shipments declined 18.7% globally for the period, while RISC/Itanium revenue declined 9.7% compared with the same quarter last year. The ‘other’ CPU category, which is primarily mainframes, showed an increase of 7.8%.”Read more
AMD has announced a PC graphics card for 4K resolution displays which it has squeezed into the small Mini ITX card format. It is a 6-inch air-cooled board which AMD expects to be used in a new type of small format gaming PCs. The Radeon R9 Nano graphics card is based on the graphics chip codenamed “Fiji”. This chip is already used in the Radeon R9 Fury and R9 Fury X graphics cards. This isRead more
AVX has brought out thin film chip capacitors for implantable medical devices. AVX has brought out thin film chip capacitors for implantable medical devices. Delivering extremely tight capacitive tolerances, repeatable performance, low ESR and high Q at high frequencies – including VHF, UHF, and RF bands – AVX’s Accu-P MP Series capacitors are stable with respect to temperature, time, frequency, and voltage variation. They are based on thin film technology and materials, and subjected to on-line processRead more

Cree co-founder Dr John Palmour is to champion silicon carbide as the most cost-effective power technology in a plenary session at the IEEE ECCE power conference in Montreal Canada in September. In a transistor price comparison, SiC devices loose badly to silicon. “A component-to-component comparison will never be wholly accurate because silicon carbide is vastly superior to silicon with regard to performance,” said Palmour. “SiC devices make systems less expensive through their ability to operateRead more
