Analog СMOSFET switches. Selection Guide. Part 2 We continue to publish materials dedicated to the base concepts of building Maxim’s standard analog CMOS switches and their characteristics. Such special functions as failure safe operation, EMP protection, multiplexers calibration and power and signal chains equal-time communication are discussed. Vidio, high speed USB, HDMI and PCIe Switches are also considered.
2 and 3mm band Magnetrons. New Designs and their application challenges Today magnetrons that generate in the short wave millimeter band (2 and 3mm) are of particular interest. JSCo Pluton has build 2mm magnetrons. Recently the company begain to develop 3-mm magnetrons. This article considers the last achievements in this field and the possible applications of these devices.
Automatic Identification of Railway Transport and Cargo Transfer Control System One of the railway transfer control prime objects is severe monitoring of the wagon state and dislocation on the way and the RRW net on the basis of authentic information about locomotive, wagon and cargo dislocation and state. The article gives consideration to an automatic identification of railway transport and cargo transfer control system and its formation on the basis of RF SAW tags
Electric Testing. Why, How and What For? With products sophistication and production volume expansion end products manually check (as assembly too) becomes impossible. The automates that came for help not only accelerated the testing processes and failure detection. Automation led to appearance of fundamentally new assembly and testing methods and technologies which allow to produce devices with the highest reliability level.
ВЧ-вольтметр АКИП-2403 – высокая точность и многофункциональность There are some specific measurements where it isn’t simple to select new imported or home made check-out facilities. These include high frequency alternative current meters. To solve such problems a relatively cheep but high precision and multifunctional device АКИП-2403 that can become an alternative to out of date domestic equipment and expensive foreign made current analogs.
Extreme Ultra Violet Lithgraphy. To Be or not to Be? Today double pattern immersion lithography, extreme ultra violet (EUV) Lithography and maskless e-beam lithography attract nanoICs designers. What are the lithographic technologies advantages and disadvantages? Which one will become wildly used?
Electronic Devices Blocks Electromagnetic Isolation. Polymer Compositional and Compound Materials Today compositional materials that permit to assembly hardware components in a single process and build up in single devices or modules local microwave energy absorber layers or screens of given dimensions are essential. Compositional materials on the basis of low molecular weight polymeric compounds of the type of potting compounds and binding materials assigned for attaining glue and microwave absorbing devices coatings developed by federal state unitary enterprise NPP Istok are considered.
Standardized processes of nitride microwave electronic components production. Current state and perspectives At the industrial research and technology conference The state and future development of home microelectronics, that was held at Novosibirsk Sept 27–28 2012 ZAO Svetnlana Rost general director V.P,Chalyi reported that his company is ready to provide foundry service for microwave components on the basis of AlGaN DH-HEMTs production. S and C range transistors technology is developed. The company proceeds to develop standard monolithic ICs on the basis of these transistors, including air bridges, MDM capacitors and TSV formation. Looking forward the company intends to come to higher frequencies.
Global Distributors. Multifaced Unity Electronic devices distribution market is one of the most important elements of modern electronics system. Besides it is a very dynamic element, distribution market events now and then come and go as kaleidoscope pictures. We propose a glance at the evolution of electronic devices distribution leaders. In December we published an interview with J.Yank the Arrow’s sales manager in Russia and CIS. To develop this theme further we offer a brief description of three representatives of absolutely different global distributors: Future Electronics, Setron and DiGi-Key that unifies one thing – dynamic growth and work in the world wide scale.
In Search of MEMS Standards. Fermers and Cowboys MEMS technology doesn’t follow the Roadmap. There are many players in the market that offer the same MEMS types produced by different methods (and some times by a single company). Further MEMS industry development requires standard solutions. How does industry where both the supplier and customer work for its development but whose opinions to achieve this are different, solve this problem.
Wireless Sensor Systems for Ensuring Mobile and Immobile Objects Security Wireless sensor systems (WSS) with integrated MEMS sensors find more and more applications for monitoring various objects: from buildings undamaged state to greenhouse microclimate. This article considers specifics of different MEMS applications.
