PCB testing

01 March, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.parameters.com.au/

By combining electronic and mechanical testing through mounting the board under test in a cantilevered or two-support beam position and subjecting it to an oscillating force, important reliability information can be gained and incipient failure modes; eg, track breakage, SMD and pin joint failures revealed.


Power transformers

01 March, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.siemens.com.au/

With its E high-power series, Epcos has introduced a family of transformers that can handle extremely high power densities while taking up less space. The EHP 16, for example, can transfer 25 W, twice that of the commonly used EF16 transformer with the same footprint. The latest transformer series comprises four versions: EHP 16 and EHP 19 as SMDs designed for 25 and 35 W, while the EHP5.0 and EHP 26 are leaded components designed to handle 50 and 100 W. The components' space requirements range from 17 x 23.3 mm to 27 x 27.5 mm. The pre-tinned core can be soldered directly to the circuit board, which ensures good heat transfer and improved cooling.


VCO synthesiser

01 March, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.caelera.com/

The SKY73100 is a fully integrated, high performance signal source for high dynamic range transceivers.


Broadband access

01 March, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.symbol.com/australia/

Symbol Technologies has introduced the AP-5131 access point - a device designed to address the wireless and wired connectivity needs of the branch office, small retail outlet and hospitality sector. It is a single-box solution that integrates all services required to extend secure broadband access to mobile users.


Vinyl plugs

01 March, 2006 | Supplied by: StockCap

StockCap has released a range of Plus-Plugs that are made of flexible vinyl incorporating a 360° pull-tab so that they are easier to remove and more adaptable than traditional rigid poly plugs.


Illumec illuminated switches

01 February, 2006 | Supplied by: Associated Controls Pty Ltd

Illumec switches are sealed to IP67 standards, have a minimum mechanical life of 10 million actuations and a ruggedised construction that accepts 100 N force applied to the actuator.


Modular jacks

01 February, 2006 | Supplied by: ERNTEC Pty Ltd

Erni has developed a broad range of modular jacks, with integrated magnetics, for 10/100 ethernet.


High current inductors

01 February, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.siemens.com.au/

The HPI series of high-power inductors from Epcos covers the inductance range from 0.5 to 3.92 µH and can handle currents up to 30 A. Depending on inductance, insertion height is 4.95 or 5.95 mm for a footprint of 11 x 13.1 mm. Resistance ranges from 1.1 to 6.0 milliohm.


Nylon spacers/supports

01 February, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.npa.com.au/

A choice of nylon spacers/supports which either lock-fit, tension-fit or screw mount to a PCB or chassis are among the latest board stacking components available from Keystone Electronics.

Enclosure range grows

10 January, 2006 | Supplied by: http://www.hammondmfg.com/

Hammond Electronics has extended its 1551 family of miniature general-purpose ABS enclosures by adding shallower versions of the existing rectangular version, introducing new square plan sizes in two heights and adding flanged lids which are now available for all plan sizes.


Electronic capacitor

28 November, 2005 | Supplied by: http://www.tenrod.com.au/

Tenrod has introduced Sanyo's Oscon capacitors which unlike aluminium electrolytic capacitors use a highly conductive organic semiconductor as the electrolyte.


Variable resistor

05 October, 2005 | Supplied by: http://www.arrowaustralia.com/

Dallas Semiconductor has released the DS3906, a triple variable resistor for low resistance, small step-size applications.
