DSC USB Calibration System

Morehouse (York, PA) has introduced a new DSC USB system with mini-netbook (load cell and case not included) for the calibration of load cells, testing machines, and other force or torque systems. The new system is direct reading according to ASTM-E74 and E2428, and fully USB powered, eliminating excess power cables. ASTM Class A lower limits are better than 2% when paired with Morehouse ultra-precision load cells. The system’s program is designed to use the coefficients from a calibration report and apply them to the “live” signal of the DSC unit, thereby eliminating the need for load tables. The end-user can read direct engineering units in LBF, KGF and Newtons.

D/A Converter Module

Pentek (Upper Saddle River, NJ) has released a D/A convertermodule for RF and IF waveform playback, the Cobalt® Model 71671. The module delivers four independent analog outputs, each through its own digital upconverter and 16-bit D/A with sampling rates to 1.25 GHz. An onboard Xilinx Virtex-6 FPGA provides turnkey waveform generation for output signal bandwidths from less than 1 kHz up to 250MHz, with an extended interpolation range from 2× to 1,048,576×. Users can also customize the module’s operation by implementing their own IP in the FPGA.

TVS Diode Arrays

Littelfuse, Inc. (Chicago, IL) has expanded its SP1005 and SP1007 Series General Purpose TVS Diode Arrays (SPA® Devices) with two new 0402 size devices designed to offer modern integrated circuits (ICs) better protection from electrostatic discharge (ESD). The low dynamic resistances of the SP1005-01ETG and SP1007-01ETG allow them to provide a clamping voltage up to 80 percent lower than competing technologies, such as Multi-Layer Varistors (MLVs). Typical applications include protection of keypads, buttons, switches, and low-speed I/Os on consumer electronics such as smartphones, tablet computers, e-readers, portable navigation devices, digital cameras, portable medical devices, etc.
