Maxim’s Industrial IoT Reference Design Speeds Development of Authenticated Data Chains

Highly secure coprocessor supports Arduino® and ARM® mbed™ platforms, assures easy prototyping

Addressing the many issues related to system security in Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) installations, the MAXREFDES143# embedded security reference design from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. (NASDAQ: MXIM) provides protection against counterfeit sensor data, guaranteeing its authenticity and integrity along the entire data chain, from transducer to the cloud.

The rapid growth of IoT capabilities for industrial applications comes with legitimate concerns about data integrity, due to deliberate corruption of critical sensor data anywhere between a source and the cloud. The reference design's sophisticated architecture and components, Arduino-compatible hardware interface, and ARM mbed libraries support simplifies development of secure, uncorrupted, and authenticated sensor-to-web data. It is ideal for analog sensor node and data authentication in factory automation and industrial processing applications.

SIDACtor® Protection Thyristors in DO-214AB Package from Littelfuse Protect Low-Data-Rate Interfaces, Outdoor Data Interfaces

Pxxx0S3NLRP Series provides surface mount solution designed for compliance with global regulatory standards

Littelfuse, Inc., the global leader in circuit protection, the global leader in circuit protection, has introduced a new series of SIDACtor® Protection Thyristors in DO-214AB (surface-mount) packages, designed to protect low-data-rate interfaces and outdoor data interfaces in general industrial applications. The Pxxx0S3NLRP Series provides robust surge protection performance at up to 2.5kA, while maintaining much lower switching threshold (VS) and on-state voltage (VT) than traditional protection solutions like Gas Discharge Tube (GDT) technology. They also offer crowbarring power fault protection superior to typical clamping devices.

60V Synchronous Buck Battery Charger Includes Lead-Acid & Li-Ion Charge Algorithms for up to 20A Charge Current

Linear Technology Corporation introduces the LTC4013, a highly integrated, high voltage multi-chemistry synchronous step-down battery charger controller. With a wide input voltage range that spans up to 60V, the LTC4013 uses temperature-compensated 3- and 4-stage charge algorithms to efficiently charge 12V and 24V lead-acid batteries. Alternatively, the LTC4013 will charge a multicell Lithium-based battery stack with float voltages near to the input supply. Mode pins define the float voltage and charge algorithm. Charge current is precision regulated to ±5% and programmable with a single resistor up to 20A (depending on the selection of external components). The LTC4013 features user-adjustable maximum power point tracking (MPPT) circuitry that enables simple power optimization in the case of power-limited sources such as solar panels. The MPPT open-circuit method corrects for panel temperature changes without the inconvenience of adding a solar panel temperature sensor. Applications include portable medical instruments, monitoring equipment, battery backup systems, industrial handhelds, industrial lighting, military equipment, ruggedized notebooks/tablet computers, plus remote powered communication and telemetry systems.

Highly integrated Hall sensors by Infineon reduce systems costs considerably

TDK's subsidiary EPCOS to acquire Tronics to further grow its sensor business

TDK Corporation (“TDK”, TSE: 6762) and Tronics Microsystems SA (“Tronics”, ISIN:FR0004175099 ALTRO) jointly announced today that TDK’s wholly-owned subsidiary EPCOS AG (“EPCOS”), a leading manufacturer of electronic components, modules and systems based in Munich, Germany, and Tronics have signed a tender offer agreement pursuant to which EPCOS will launch a public tender offer for all publicly-held shares of Tronics for EUR 13.20 per share. On a fully-diluted equity value basis, the transaction represents a value of Tronics’ equity of approximately EUR 48.65 million. This represents a 78.4% premium over Tronics’ closing share price on July 7, 2016, the trading day immediately preceding the stock trading suspension, and a 62.1% premium to the volume-weighted average price during the last 60 trading days prior to this suspension.

3 Steps Electrical Engineers Should Take to Obtain the Best Electronic BoM Costs

To stay competitive in today’s extremely tough markets, electrical engineers have to not only be technically adept at designing in components that give their products a competitive edge, but they also have to know the best practices in assuring that the Bill of Material (BoM) costs are as low as possible.  As the electronic component BoM cost usually represents the single largest cost element of an end-product, being good at controlling these costs can give companies in saturated markets a competitive edge. 

The field applications engineers at SemiElectronics have come up with the 3 top items that engineers should pay attention to during design process and beyond to leverage the best BoM costs possible.
