Thermal Imaging Core Eases FPA Integration


Thermal Imaging Core Eases FPA Integration
FLIR Systems Inc.
September 1, 2014

Poised for volume OEM apps, FLIR Systems’ latest thermal imaging core, dubbed Muon, is designed for integrating uncooled FPAs into camera designs. The core is described as a thermal subassembly that generates calibrated CMOS video out using industry-standard interfaces. It is calibrated for TEC-less operation, eliminating the need to develop elaborate factory calibration equipment or processes. Muon is a thermal engine operating on standard imaging device power and communication protocols. It is based on the company’s 17µ pitch Vandium Oxide (VOx) 640x512 or 336x256 FPAs, offers frame rates from 9 Hz to 60Hz, and has a form factor of 22 mm x 22 mm x 6 mm with a mass of less than 5g. Depending on configuration, power consumption is less than 300 mW. To learn more, visit http://www.flir.com/cvs/cores/view/?id=64979

Laser Diodes Crank Out 0.5W At 635 nm


Laser Diodes Crank Out 0.5W At 635 nm
Laser Components USA Inc.
August 29, 2014

Delivering 500 mW of output at 635 nm, the ADL-63V0BTP and ADL-63V0ANP laser diodes achieve an efficiency of 1 mW/mA and reside in hermetically-sealed 9-mm or 5.6-mm TO housings. Thermal conductivity for both is equivalent to that of C-mount housings. The diodes target biochemical and medical applications such as photodynamic therapy and other illumination applications and laser displays as their emitter size is 50 μm. Datasheets for the ADL-63V0BTP and ADL-63V0ANP, respectively, are available at:

Step-Down Controller Features -55°C to 150°C Junction Temperature


Step-Down Controller Features -55°C to 150°C Junction Temperature
Linear Technology Corp.
August 28, 2014

Available in H- and MP-grade versions with operating junction temperatures from -40°C to 150°C and -55°C to 150°C, respectively, the LTC3853 triple output synchronous step-down switching regulator controller operates over a 4.5V to 24V input voltage range. It can produce output currents up to 20A per phase with output voltages ranging from 0.8V to 13.5V at up to 95% efficiency. Other features include a precision 0.8V reference with an accuracy of ±1.25% over a -55°C to 150°C operating temperature range. With up to 98% duty cycle, the device has a very low dropout voltage. Available in a thermally enhanced 6 mm x 6 mm QFN-40 package. Pricing $4.24 each/1,000. A datasheet is available at http://cds.linear.com/docs/en/datasheet/3853fb.pdf

Board-to-Board Connector Features 0.35-mm Pitch


Board-to-Board Connector Features 0.35-mm Pitch
KYOCERA Connector Products Corp.
August 28, 2014

Enabling high-density, the 5853 Series board-to-board connector sports a 0.35-mm pitch, stacking height of 0.6 mm between boards, and a width of 2.4 mm. This is 0.2-mm lower in stacking height compared to the conventional 5843 Series with the same pad pattern. A stacking height of 0.8mm (5843 series) is also available, enabling flexible design.

Current Sensor First To Integrate Back-End Amp


Current Sensor First To Integrate Back-End Amp
Linear Technology Corp.
August 28, 2014

According to its maker, the ACS726 is the first current sensor IC to include a fully differential back end amplifier for adjusting gain and bandwidth via external RC networks. The back end amplifier is fully independent and, when unused, powers down to reduce power consumption. The fully differential output of the device has a positive differential voltage (VOUTP – VOUTN) when an increasing current flows through the primary copper conduction path (from pins 1 through 6, to pins 7 through 12), which is the path used for current sensing. The internal resistance of this conductive path is 1.1 mΩ typical. Pricing is $1.73 each/1,000. See a datasheet at http://www.allegromicro.com/~/media/Files/Datasheets/ACS726-Datasheet.ashx
