Advertorials New Mini-ITX Haswell 4th generation embedded
system board The BVM Group announces availability of the new Mini-ITX SBC LV-67M from Commell, which takes advantage of the performance benefits of the latest Haswell 4th generation 22nm Intel Quad Core processors. The Haswell CPU family offers major improvements over its 3rd generation predecessor, Sandy Bridge, in particular reducing power consumption and increasing performance. The new board has a soldered on BGA CPU providing better cooling and reliability. Available immediately is the Intel Core i7-4700EQ Mobile CPU. The LV-67M runs
under the QM87 Express chipset with the HD Graphics 4600 processor embedded in the processor. The high performance graphics, multiple display support, low power consumption and wealth of external interfaces make both units ideal for use in graphics-intensive multi-tasking environments such as signage, gaming, medical, defence and transportation.
Comprehensive I/O and extension support is provided, with comprehensive HD video and audio options, LVDS with +3.3/+5 and +12V supply, DVI and VGA. Gigabit LAN, PCIe 16-Slot, Mini-PCIe, USB3.0 and RS232/422/485 serial ports are provided, as is a SATAIII 6Gb/s interface with support for RAID 1, 3, 5 and 10. A GPIO interface, watchdog timer, real time clock and power management, including the new “active idle” power state, which wakes up in milliseconds.

First for film capacitors
ICW Metallised film capacitor manufacturer, ICW, has announced a joint sales agreement with Milan-based ICEL. Both companies will offer one another’s products in their respective home markets, giving UK buyers access to ICEL’s box radial polypropylene and polyester capacitors for snubber, pulse power, DC link and AC filtering applications.
Managing director of ICW, David Thomson, said: “Our product lines complement one another, allowing ICW to offer a complete film capacitor solution in the UK. In addition to supplying high quality, cost effective capacitors, both ICW and ICEL offer technical and development support. Our common approach can only result in a better film capacitor solution for customers.”

industrial and prosumer markets KOE Europe has introduced a new 7.0-inch TFT display featuring Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels) resolution. KOE are one of the first LCD manufacturers to introduce a compact, Full HD display module developed specifically for industrial applications. The TX18D200VM0EAA features a pixel pitch of 0.081mm (w) x 0.081mm (h), equivalent to 314ppi (pixels per inch), Advanced IPS, 20-pin LVDS data interface, long-life LED backlight and wide operating temperature range.
The Full HD TFT display module uses the latest Advanced IPS (in-plane-switching) technology which gives exceptional colour image consistency over 170° vertical and horizontal viewing angles. IPS also
enables highly accurate representation of colour gradients and authentic colour reproduction. These display attributes are particularly important in professional broadcast and medical imaging equipment.
Excellent optical performance is ensured with a contrast ratio of 800:1 and a brightness specification of 700cd/m² enabling bright and concise display images. The LED backlight is specified at 70K hours to half-brightness lifetime and features an integrated dimming function.
The 7.0-inch display is ideal for applications such as compact broadcast monitors, medical imaging, multimedia monitors, test and measurement instrumentation. The new TX18D200VM0EAA display module is available immediately through KOE Europe's distribution partners.

20x4 3.3V High contrast display with SPI
MMS Electronics Ltd supplier of sensor and display products has available a new 20x4 high-contrast alphanumeric LCD display. The EA DIP203B-4 is available in black-on- yellow/green, white-on-blue and black-on-white background. Built-in automatic temperature compensation eliminates the need for contrast re-adjustment. The LCD controller SSD1803 is 90% HD44780 compatible and has built-in character set of 240 characters, letters and symbols. Interface is 4 / 8 bit or high speed SPI. Single 3.3V/1.5mA operation. Current using the white LED backlight is max. 45mA and 150mA for yellow/green. –20 to +70º C temperature range suitable for industrial applications. By removing the usual trough-hole
connector and PCB found on standard displays with a ready assembled DIP header optimum use of space created. Easy assembly, display is simply inserted into PCB socket or soldered in place. Other sizes available in the compact DIP series are 1x8, 2x8, 2x16, 4x20 character displays and 122x32, 128x64 180x32, 240x128 graphic display. Displays are available from stock.

Newly designed OCXO from IQD delivers class
leading ultra low phase noise performance IQD’s new IQOV-200F OCXO delivers exceptional phase noise performance with a close-in measurement of -130dBc @100Hz and a noise floor better than -180dBc across a high frequency range of 80 to 130MHz.
Combining the high performance expected from an IQD SC-cut crystal based OCXO, the IQOV-200F delivers a frequency stability of ±50ppb over the standard -20 to 70 degrees C operating temperature range. Housed in a 36 x 27mm ‘Eurostyle’ package and running off a 12V supply, the model offers a sinewave output of 13dBm min. Frequencies in the range 80 to 130MHz can be ordered whilst optional pulling can also be specified. Furthermore, the IQOV-200F offers comparatively low power consumption of just 150mA max at 25 degrees C and 350mA max during warm up.
The product is suitable for any application where phase noise is a critical design consideration i.e. test and measurement systems, radar applications, military systems and Dielectric Resonator Oscillators (DRO).
Even better results can be offered where customers are able to compromise on parameters such as output power, current draw, ageing and of course price. Where phase noise is a key parameter in proposed designs, customers should discuss with IQD’s Application Support Team who can tailor specifications to suit specific system requirements.
