In order to address the vibrant and constantly expanding maker market, SST Sensing Ltd. has partnered up with Sparkfun. Together they have developed and simple to implement solution for single point liquid detection using infra-red technology. This highly reliable and accurate solution comprises an Optomax Digital liquid level switch which is connected to an Arduino board via the TTL output and powered by its 5V source. LEDs on the Arduino can be easily programmed to indicate if the sensor is/isn’t immersed by the liquid (and thus determine if liquid level is too high/low). Using this hardware, hobbyists are provided with plenty of scope to experiment, while professional engineers have the opportunity to evaluate their prototype before moving on to a full scale design.

The Optomax devices have compact dimensions that allow them to be deployed within environments where there is only limited available space. As relatively long cabling can be supported, the sensor can be placed in close proximity to a liquid without any risk of the accompanying electronics on the Arduino being damaged. Furthermore, as this solution is of an optical rather than a mechanical nature, issues such as the build-up of deposits, jamming, or wear and tear are avoided. A long term operational life span is thereby assured. [Continue reading →]

Intersil Corporation today announced the ISL78693, a 3.6V single-cell battery charger that extends the life of Lithium Iron Phosphate (LiFePO4) batteries used in automotive emergency call (eCall) systems. The ISL78693 battery charger offers up to 4x lower leakage current (3uA) than competitive chargers, allowing the eCall backup battery to remain charged for a longer period of time. See a demonstration of the ISL78693 in Intersil’s booth #E30-11 at the Automotive World conference, January 18-20 in Tokyo, Japan.

Automakers worldwide are installing eCall in their Vehicle to Infrastructure (V2I) systems. In the event of a crash, the eCall system automatically broadcasts its location via GPS and contacts the nearest 24-hour emergency call center for help. Thus, V2I eCall systems must be capable of operating reliably and autonomously from the backup battery at a moment’s notice, even if the vehicle is involved in an accident minutes after being parked for several months.[Continue reading →]

PHOENIX, Ariz. – January 17, 2017 – ON Semiconductor (Nasdaq: ON), driving energy efficient innovations, has introduced a new touch/proximity sensing solution that combines industry-leading performance, cost effectiveness and convenience in a single chip. The LC717A30UJ high dynamic range capacitance-to-digital converter uses mutual capacitance to detect changes in capacitance down to femtofarad (fF) levels. Parasitic capacitance cancellation raises the detector sensitivity, while its built-in noise rejection mechanism combats the effects of electromagnetic interference (EMI).

The eight capacitance-sensing input channels make the LC717A30UJ highly optimized for use in systems where an array of switches is required. The device includes an integrated multiplexer for input channel selection, analog-to-digital converter, dual-stage amplifier that determines capacitance changes plus outputs analog amplitude values, system clock, power-on reset circuit, and all the necessary control logic to create a total solution. Both I2C and SPI interfaces are selectable based on the system application needs.[Continue reading →]

LIGHTWEIGHT, COMPACT RVG-SD1 PROVIDES 8-PORTS OF HIGHLY CONFIGURABLE SD/HD/3G-SDI VIDEO I/O EUROSATORY 2016 (Booth #HALL 5A, Stand J761), PARIS, FRANCE – June 13-17, 2016 – Curtiss-Wright’s Defense Solutions division introduces the newest member of the Rugged Video Gateway (RVG) family of video management solutions, for size, weight and power (SWaP)-constrained ground and airborne platforms. The 8-port, multi-format, RVG-SDI Crossbar Video Switch speeds and simplifies the routing of 3G, HD and SD-SDI video sources, such as distributing video camera data to multiple displays. The RVG-SDI functions as a non-blocking crossbar switch and features eight (8) external miniBNC connectors, each of which can be configured as either a video input or output. The unit’s unique level of configuration flexibility enables any input to be routed to any or all of the 7 remaining I/O ports. Additionally, the RVG-SD1 can be configured on-the-fly via its external RS-422 and CAN control interfaces or statically to support a specific mission.

The RVG-SDI supports a wide variety of switch configurations, for example, it can be configured as a 1:7 repeater, 7:1 switcher, 2:6 repeater, or a 6:2 switcher, without the seven (7) dedicated inputs and seven dedicated outputs typically required for such flexibility. The result is a smaller (49 x 160 x 185 mm) and lighter (2 kg) video switch that is ideal for use in space and weight constrained manned and unmanned platforms used in military and aerospace applications. Designed to perform optimally in harsh conditions, the conduction-cooled RVG-SDI requires no active cooling and supports a -40 to +70ºC operating temperature range. It has been certified to stringent MIL-STD-810G environmental standards and is DO-160 qualified.[Continue reading →]

Today’s maritime forces, even those with highly advanced radar, are facing a growing threat from the proliferation of anti-ship missiles, unmanned aerial vehicles, and Fast Attack Craft/Fast Inshore Attack Craft (FAC/FIAC), which can be deployed at a relatively low cost making them easily obtainable by enemies at sea and often undetected by radar. Currently, detecting these threats depends on the fatigue-prone human eye, which is why the U.S. Navy researchers launched the Combined EO/IR Surveillance and Response System (CESARS) program.

The Office of Naval Research’s (ONR) CESARS program combines two key subsystem requirements to make up an electro-optical shipboard defense system to protect surface ships from evolving threats.
