In view of the ongoing boom in demand in the microelectronics sector and ever-new performance requirements for electronic systems, AT&S has decided to put an even stronger focus on research and development. Therefore, the company is investing in a new R&D center for substrate and packaging solutions for the global semiconductor industry at its location in Leoben-Hinterberg. In addition, another technology upgrade of the production facilities will be implemented.
The admittedly somewhat cumbersome product designation IGMG-P83244GC+-D4G gives some idea that this machine presented as an M2M gateway for IoT applications can do considerably more than only forwarding data or conveying data between IT systems. It really is an extremely high performance controller with industrial quality which the German distributor Acceed has incorporated in its IIoT portfolio. Last but not least, the software equipment supports a large number of applications in the industrial IoT. The robust and fanless chassis design for an operating temperature range of -40 bis +75 °C is also attuned to these high requirements.
Compared to conventional connectors, Panasonic Industry’s new R35K connector saves almost 50 % space on the PCB – but thanks to its proven technology it is nonetheless reliable in demanding environments of smartwatches and other wearables.
Pickering Interfaces, the leading supplier of modular signal switching and simulation solutions for use in electronic test and verification, today launched a new family of battery simulator modules,ideal for Electric Vehicle (EV) battery stack emulation in Battery Management Systems (BMS) test applications.
Vector releases the new version 6 of DYNA4, the tool for virtual test driving. DYNA4 R6 expands the possibilities for testing ADAS functions through a variety of improvements in the environment sensor models and the visualization of scenarios. In addition, users benefit from new functions of the simulation standards ASAM OSI for sensor data communication as well as the road network ASAM OpenDRIVE.
TDK Corporation (TSE: 6762) announces that Tronics AXO®315, a miniature high-performance 1-axis closed-loop digital MEMS accelerometer, is now available for purchase at Digi-Key, Mouser and Farnell and its affiliates Newark and Element 14. The AXO315 sensor and its Arduino-based evaluation kit are now available globally from the three distributors’ websites.
