Secure access to web applications: Rutronik offers Swissbit's iShield FIDO2 Security Key

  Knowledge

Swissbit offers an extremely strong authentication option that is also particularly simple, secure and flexible with the iShield FIDO2. Hardware-based, asymmetric private/public key cryptography replaces password-based authentication and single-chip security keys. So it provides reliable protection against online attacks such as phishing, social engineering or account takeover. In addition to more secure...

VCSELs for ToF Applications - How VCSELs can be best put to use

Created by Alain Bruno Kamwa, Product Sales Manager Opto at Rutronik, and Markus Oberascher, Senior Field Application Engineer at Lextar |   Knowledge

VCSELs (vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers) are superior to LEDs when it comes to short switching times and a narrow optical spectrum—making them the best choice for time-of-flight (ToF) applications. To make the best use of the abilities of VCSEL chips, however, the packages need to be optimized for them.
