In the last years it became clear, that the one way development of new and better combustion engine based powertrain solutions in the automotive industry is changed, mainly by economic, environmental and social reasons. The regulations to reduce CO2 emissions forced the OEMs to search for alternative techniques either to reduce the fuel consumption or even to replace the combustion engine by an electrical...
Water-based electrolytic capacitors have had a bad image ever since the famous “capacitor plague”. And wrongly so, because they now meet key requirements in modern-day electronics – and there are new alternatives in the form of polymer hybrid capacitors.
The new Recom REM2 series includes modular 2W DC/DC converters with complete medical certification. Thanks to a/their compact SIP8 package (23.0x8.0x12.2mm) and many variants, they offer developers much freedom in designing their PCB layout. The REM2 series is available at www.Rutronik24.com with many input voltage ranges, all common output voltages as well as single or dual outputs.
The ultra-low power multi-protocol wireless SoCs and modules of Redpine Signals’ RS9116 family are available at www.Rutronik24.com in hosted (nLinkTM) or embedded (WiSeConnectTM) software architecture with multiple host interfaces (SDIO, USB, SPI, UART). As a result they provide great design flexibility for battery operated IoT devices.
Passive matrix OLEDs are high-contrast, thin, and energy-saving. They are also being increasingly used in industrial applications. Which advantages and disadvantages do they offer and when does a Design-In-Process make sense?
