Hawthorne, CA (PRWEB) April 26, 2011
Need to go wireless, but think RF is for geeks only? Tired of trying to figure out how to get power to your Ethernet connected design? Need machine-to-machine connectivity, but range is an issue? Do you need a low power, high endurance (10 billion read/writes) non-volatile memory? Does your power management solution take up too much real estate on your board? ALL of these design challenges and more can be solved by visiting Symmetry Electronics and their leading-edge technology suppliers in Booth 1938 at the ESC show in San Jose.
Challenged to find a non-volatile memory that can provide an unprecedented 10 billion read/writes and guarantee 10 year data retention? Look no further than the Fujitsu FRAM family. FRAM is a high-performance and low-power non-volatile memory that combines the benefits of conventional non-volatile memories and RAM. This breakthrough storage technology can be used in a variety of applications including POS terminals, security and various consumer applications. Fujitsu will also demonstrate the FM3 family of 32-bit general purpose microcontrollers featuring the industry’s leading-edge ARM Cortex-M3™ CPU. The FM3 MCUs integrate Fujitsu’s reliable and high-speed secure embedded flash technology and a host of robust peripheral features, including motor control timers, ADCs and a wide range of communication interfaces optimized for motor control applications. The devices are supported by IAR and Keil development tools. Another category of Fujitsu products showcased at ESC will be the company’s line of graphics display controllers (GDCs) that combine powerful 2D/3D graphics processing units (GPUs) with advanced display controller units (DCUs). Fujitsu offers a broad range of GDCs ideal for use in automotive, marine and avionics applications as well as in medical, industrial and factory automation and white goods. Graphics solutions from Fujitsu span the spectrum of application categories from high to basic, giving system designers unparalleled cost and performance flexibility.

Tired of paying electrician fees to get power to your Ethernet enabled design? Think SilverTel’s Power over Ethernet (PoE) for up to 200W of power over your standard Ethernet cable. Perfect for iP cameras, digital signage, iP phones and other Ethernet designs, SilverTel has the most extensive lineup of PoE devices in the smallest form factors in the industry. Drop by the booth and speak to SilverTel’s PoE experts and enter a drawing to win an IEEE802.3at PD kit which includes an AG5100 (up to 30W of output power), an eval board, ethernet cable and DC power cable along with all required documentation.
Had problems with your supply chain of power management products? Looking for more performance, more integration, but want to use less space? Torex Semiconductor is your power management answer! With innovative products like their XCL205/206 series which are ultra-small (2.5 x 2.0 x 1.0mm) these synchronous buck converters even have an integrated coil. With operating voltages of 2.0V to 6.0V, the output voltage can be stepped in 0.05V increments within a range of 0.8 to 4.0V (accuracy + 2.0%). The XCL206 freely responds at high speed from light to heavy loads and achieves low ripple/high efficiency and will reduce quiescent current to 1.0uA or less by turning off all circuits during standby. Be sure to stop by the booth for demonstrations of these and other great products from Torex including their Accelerometer sensors and LED drivers.
Nordic Semiconductor has ultra-low power short-range wireless solutions perfect for those applications where low cost is a must, including consumer products where license-free bands are especially important. Nordic has a portfolio of solutions perfect for everything from sports and fitness applications, consumer electronics and healthcare monitoring. Need to “talk” to a Bluetooth device? Nordic’s latest nRF8001 chip makes it easy to add Bluetooth low energy wireless connectivity and has the link layer and host stack to support the external micro of your choice. We’ll have representatives from Nordic Semiconductor in the booth demonstrating their chip solutions don’t miss out on your chance to win a Bluetooth low energy development kit!
Need to add WiFi or wired Ethernet networking to your product on a single PCB design? Then you’re looking for Lantronix’s Linux-based PremierWaveTM EN whose security technologies include 802.11i, WPA and WPA2. Lantronix will also feature their intelligent M2M platform, AccessMyDevice - the only plug and play device that enables machines to become active participants in an intelligent ecosystem so you can do more with the data collected from your remote devices or assets. Come check out the live demos of both of these great products.
How do you satisfy a global customer base that has multiple cellular protocols (GSM, GPRS, EDGE, UMTS and HSPA) without inventorying dozens of different PCBs for all of the different solutions? Telit is your best bet! All modules in a family have the same form factors and functionality as well as the same software interface. The newest member of their lineup of cellular modules is the HE910 with its low power and ultra low profile LGA package - the perfect answer for mobile computing devices. Need voice only? Data only? GPS? Various combinations? Telit has the right solution for you. Stop by our booth to learn more, see the actual modules and learn about Telit’s great development tools… and enter the drawing for an iPod Nano.
