Reference timing components are used in industrial electronic systems to synchronize all signals to the clock source. Electronic equipment used in harsh industrial environments must be highly resilient and robust, and must contain components that are designed to operate in extreme environments. Learn how MEMS-based oscillators offer new features, flexibility, higher performance and superior reliability that is ideal for industrial applications.

This article describes the implementation of a sensorless three-phase Brushless DC (BLDC) motor control application using the Freescale 32-bit Kinetis MKV10x devices. The application software provided uses the concept of an isolated algorithm software and hardware. This software approach enables easy porting of an application between other devices or platforms.

Modern field instruments, otherwise known as smart transmitters, are intelligent microprocessor-based field instruments that monitor process control variables (e.g., temperature, mass flow rate, and pressure). The incorporation of extra intelligence, functionality, and diagnostic capabilities, while developing a system which can operate effectively within the limited power available from 4 mA to 20 mA loop, is the immediate challenge facing system designers.

Low voltage (1248VDC) circuits are used in a wide variety of applications, including, low voltage surge protection device (SPD), automation control systems (PLCs), industrial control contact relays, low voltage power supply unit (PSU), security alarm system and many other system types.

Artesyn Embedded Technologies, formerly Emerson Network Powers Embedded Computing Power business, today announced the new AXA series of compact 20 W high power density dc-dc converters designed to be used in applications such as battery-operated equipment, instrumentation, distributed power architectures in communications and industrial electronics and other space critical-applications.

Productivity and efficiency go hand-in-hand with connectivity. Thats why TE has spent the past six decades partnering with manufacturing and process automation leaders in key markets such as Germany, Japan, the United States and China. Its also why we start working with you at the earliest possible design stage to make sure we thoroughly understand your business challenges and provide the customized solutions you need.

Highly integrated semiconductor products are not only a trend in consumer products, but also in motor-control applications. Concurrently, the share of Brushless DC (BLDC) motors is gradually increasing over other motor types in a number of markets, such as automotive and medical applications. With the demand growth and mature technology of BLDC motors, the strategies to develop BLDC motor-control systems have evolved from discrete circuits into three distinct categories.

In high speed signal generation applications bandwidth and resolution are the critical requirements. Modern signal generation applications use high speed digital-to-analog converters (DACs) to produce various types of waveforms--from single tones to complex multichannel waveforms with several hundred megahertz of bandwidth.

With flexibility, cost savings and user-friendly characteristics, wireless technologies today can be seen in many applications and industries. One more recent arrival to the wireless scene is the automotive factory floor.

A new Intelligent Power Switches with eight power stages (PMOS) in high side configuration, protections and diagnostics with embedded galvanic isolation has been developed and put into mass production by STMicroelectronics.

How Industrial Ethernet to the machine level can help reduce downtime, while improving operational safety and real-time information flow.

TI introduced a 700-V switcher with the industrys lowest quiescent current of less than 100 uA half the power consumption of existing solutions. The UCC28880 controller increases overall energy efficiency of always-on non-isolated power systems with output currents up to 100 mA, such as smart meters, home automation equipment and white goods.

Converting large industrial motor drives to inverterised variable-speed control is known to enhance performance and controllability for end users, while saving energy costs and greenhouse-gas emissions. The Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistor (IGBT) is the power switch of choice in suitable inverters, and has evolved over several generations to deliver the high energy efficiency, power density, ruggedness and reliability of todays latest device families.

KEMET is the only components company which can offer 98% of capacitor types in the world. Aim to the high reliability request from industrial application, KEMET offer different kinds of capacitor solutions.

Always on the safe side NTC thermistors are not always the solution of choice as inrush current limiters (ICLs) in power supplies. In certain cases with especially demanding temperature and power conditions, PTC thermistors are able to offer more reliable protection. An added benefit: EPCOS PTC ICLs also provide protection in case of short circuits.

Universal Serial Bus (USB) was designed to standardize the connection of the computer peripherals, such as keyboards, mice, printers, pen drives, hard disks, and portable media players, both to communicate and supply power needed for them.
