Future-Ready Wi-Fi and Bluetooth Capabilities in Certified Module Solutions from Laird

Laird’s new 60 Series of certified 802.11ac 2x2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi + Bluetooth v4.2 modules provide unmatched connectivity and performance in challenging wireless environments

A new series of advanced Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules that are designed to help developers and inventors connect billions of objects to the Enterprise Internet of Things (EIoT), especially in challenging RF environments like hospitals and large industrial facilities, was announced today by global wireless technology leader Laird (LRD: London) during Electronica 2016 in Munich, Germany.

KEMET Advances Capacitor Solutions for Wide Band Gap Semiconductor Power Systems

KEMET Corporation (NYSE: KEM), a leading global supplier of electronic components, announced today that it is introducing expanded versions of its commercial and automotive grade High Voltage C0G Ceramic capacitors to meet the needs of the growing Wide Band Gap semiconductor trend. KEMET is now offering case sizes 2824, 3040, 3640, and 4540 to increase capacitance up to 150 nF with voltages up to 2,000 V. With a low profile and aspect ratio, these devices exhibit low inductance and ESR versus frequency allowing for very high ripple current capability.

Intersil Expands Single-Chip USB-C Buck-Boost Battery Charger Family stars

Intersil Corporation (NASDAQ: ISIL), a leading provider of innovative power management and precision analog solutions, today introduced two new USB-C™ buck-boost battery chargers that support bidirectional power delivery in ultrabooks, tablets, power banks and other mobile products. The single-chip ISL9238 and ISL9238A battery chargers replace competitive two-chip solutions to reduce customer bill of materials (BOM) costs by up to 40%. Both ICs employ Intersil's patented R3™ modulation technology to extend battery life and deliver acoustic noise-free operation, superior light-load efficiency and ultra-fast transient response.

Infineon speeds up in-vehicle communication and makes it secure and reliable with CAN FD transceivers

Around 60 electronic control units communicate with each other in vehicles today via the Controller Area Network (CAN). The need for in-vehicle communication is growing as the amount of networking increases and more comfort and automation are implemented. The new protocol variant CAN FD (CAN Flexible Data-rate) allows a higher data bandwidth and transmission speed. This saves time in programming, in tests and diagnostic routines as well as for software updates over the air (SOTA).

With its TLE925x CAN FD transceivers, Infineon Technologies makes data exchange up to 30 times faster than today. The TLE925x reaches transmission speeds of up to 5 Mbit/s. Compared to the classical CAN transceivers with a maximum of 8 byte, the CAN FD transceivers such as TLE925x can send a payload of up to 64 byte per message. This opens up the possibility to check the transmitted data for consistency in the transmitting control unit and to sign it with a 21-bit checksum instead of the 17-bit possible so far. Longer checksums ensure reliable communication between the control units. This makes it possible to better secure data transmission in the vehicle without the application software becoming more complex in the electronic control unit.
