Components Bureau announces new range of Inductors to fuel continued growth

Building on its record-breaking sales success of 2013, Components Bureau is kicking off the new year with a major expansion to its electro-magnetic components range. Linking with Superworld Electronics, the Huntingdon-based company is supplying a complete range of inductors. Andrew Ferrier, General Manager of Components Bureau explains: “While our Precision Transformer range is proving to be both very popular and successful, there has been a demand for us to supply a different dimension to the wound product. Superworld supplies inductors that are the equal to the well-known brand leaders and so we are excited to be able to offer customers a real alternative from a company as committed as ourselves to value, quality and service.”

The product range includes Ferrite Chip Beads for both general, high-speed and surface mount applications, Power Conductors, High Current Chip and Thin Film Inductors.

“We are powering forward with our range and by moving into the inductor market can now offer a more rounded solution, particularly to customers who prefer to source as many components as possible from one supplier. As with all our manufacturers, we have a hotline to the Superworld production department which means we can expedite any order to suit our customers’ delivery demands. With plants across China and Taiwan, fast delivery is simply not an issue and with Superworld ranking in the top three of Enterprise companies in Singapore we are predicting growth equal to if not surpassing that of our previous year” concludes Ferrier.

Murata shrinks 1 W DC-DC converter size by 26%

Murata today announced the MEU1 series of ultra miniature single isolated output 1 Watt DC-DC converters from Murata Power Solutions. Measuring just 8.30 x 6.10 x 7.55 mm, this new series achieves a 26% footprint reduction when compared to previously released products. Available as through-hole mounting with staggered style pinouts, the MEU1 achieves a 25% increase in power density and can deliver its output power over the whole temperature range of – 40 degrees C to +85 degrees C. The reduction in converter volume and footprint allows engineers to reduce the overall dimensions of their application, which is critical for space-constrained designs.

Conversion efficiency has also been improved by typically 6% across the full load range compared to previous models. Efficiency improvements contribute to lowering the overall system power consumption in addition to increasing system reliability.

The MEU1 series also has load regulation that is typically 3% better than the industry norm when compared to similar miniature through-hole converters. This reduces the need for any additional external regulation components and further conserves precious board space.

A total of 14 models are available across the series, catering for the popular input voltages of 3.3, 5, or 12 VDC and providing outputs of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, or 15 VDC. 1kVDC galvanic isolation aids reduction of switching noise and allows the converter to be configured to provide an isolated negative rail in systems where only positive rails exist.

Certification to the international safety standard UL/IEC 60950 is pending.

Amphenol Enhances its RADSOK Technology RADSOK R4 delivers connections up to 200 A

Amphenol Industrial Global Operations, a global leader in interconnect systems, has enhanced the technology in its high current contact system to RADSOK R4. This improved system is available in board-to-board, wire-to- board and busbar-to-board configurations. Ideal for use by both server and board manufacturers the enhanced product delivers connections up to 200 A, its hyperbolic grid contact provides multiple points of contact and a high contact surface area for efficient and low resistance power transmission.

RADSOK R4 features a lower temperature rise than traditional contact systems, giving a smaller overall connector packaging and compact footprints. A 25% reduction in outside diameter helps to further increase power density as well as saving space and its laser welded assembly offers users better mechanical strength.

Amphenol’s RADSOK R4 is easily configured to specific application requirements. The versatile contact can be efficiently adapted to custom packaging with minimal non-recurring engineering costs, whilst its proven radial contact design offers superior mechanical and electrical performance for high current board termination, offering more consistent performance as well as lower voltage drop and contact resistance.

A Super Twist version is available for applications that require enhanced radial float tolerance and blind mate or mechanical robustness,

Miniature pressure sensors HMI with increased media compatibility and digital I²C bus interface

First Sensor presents the new digital Sensortechnics HMI pressure sensors with I²C bus interface. The piezoresistive sensors measure differential and gage pressures from 100 mbar up to 10 bar full scale. Due to a special internal construction the HMI sensors achieve increased media compatibility on one pressure port to measure liquids and gases.

The HMI pressure sensors utilise precision digital signal conditioning to enable Total Error Bands (TEB) better than ±1.5 %FSS over a wide temperature range of -20…+85 °C.

The Sensortechnics HMI series offers very small SIL and DIP housings with a selection of pressure ports for tubing connection or manifold mounting. The devices provide versions with 5 V and 3 V supply. All HMI sensors can be modified according to customer specific requirements.
