Second-Generation Wireless IC

ZMD AG, Dresden, Germany offers its ZMD44102 second-generation RF transceiver IC and starter kits that comply with IEEE 802.15.4 and are designed for use in ZigBee applications. The transceiver operates in both 902–928 MHz and 868–870 MHz bands. Features include range of >250 m at 0 dBm, ultra-low-power operation modes, data transmissions up to 40 Kbps, and a thin-hardware MAC at the physical layer of the radio. The ZMD44102SKB starter kit bundle includes hardware, software, documentation, and sensor network analyzer. (631-549-2666,

Optical Encoder Engines

Avago Technologies, San Jose, CA, offers AEDA-3300 Series optical encoder engines for installation in a customer-supplied housing. The encoders are available in 600–20,000 cpr resolutions, and speeds up to 12,000 rpm, depending on resolution. Features include operating frequencies up to 1 MHz (for resolutions <10,000 cpr) and 650 kHz (for resolutions from 10,000–20,000 cpr), 2-channel quadrature and gated index channel outputs, and an integrated RS-422 differential line driver.
