Future Electronics’ Video Discusses CUI’s Rugged and Efficient DC-DC Converters

Montreal, Canada – May 30, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced the addition of another video in its how-to series on selecting the right electronic components for various applications. A new video, addressing how DC-DC converters from CUI Inc can meet your design needs is now available, along with many more helpful tutorials offered through the company’s YouTube channel.

The video introduces CUI’s low power isolated DC-DC converters, ranging from 1 to 3 watts. To address different line voltage characteristics, CUI’s range of low power converters are available in fixed and wide input voltage ratios. For example, the PDS, PDM, and PEM models offer a fixed input voltage that is ideal when the voltage rail connected to the input is very stable. If, on the other hand, the DC-DC converter is connected to a fluctuating supply, like a battery, a wider input range is required to account for the changing input voltage conditions, and can be addressed with CUI’s PQMC and PQM series which provides a 2:1 input ratio.

Low power DC-DC converters are also commonly implemented to provide isolation in a system. This electrical separation creates a barrier which can be used for safety protection or noise isolation. CUI’s low power DC-DC converters are designed with varying levels of isolation to address the needs of a range of industries and applications, from 1500 Vdc isolation meeting the needs of various industrial, telecom, and consumer equipment, to 3000 Vdc isolation meeting the needs of medical and higher voltage circuits.

CUI’s units are housed in SIP, DIP or SMT packages with industry standard pin configurations. An ultra-wide operating temperature range up to from -40 to +105°C and an encapsulated case make the units ideal for applications that may experience challenging operating conditions. Additionally, the line has been designed to maximize efficiency at light and no load, making the converters well suited for portable and battery-powered equipment.

CUI offers a number of different unregulated DC-DC converter models in 1 and 2 watt configurations. The appropriate series will depend on the required size, package type, and isolation needed. Isolation voltages up to 3000 Vdc are available. Supported input voltages include 3.3, 5, 12, 15, and 24 volts in both single and dual output configurations.

A family of 1 to 3 watt regulated devices is also available with a wider input range. Housed in SIP, DIP, and SMT packages, these models come standard with a range of single and dual output voltage along with a 3000 Vdc isolation option.

As applications find their way into more challenging environments, and customers demand higher efficiency under all operating conditions, power modules need to keep up. No matter the application challenge, CUI’s rugged, efficient, and economical family of low power DC-DC converters can meet all kinds of design needs.

Future Electronics Launches Video on Using RTOS with MCU

Montreal, Canada – May 21, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has produced a how-to video showing the reasons for using an RTOS, Real Time Operating System, with an MCU.

The video discusses the benefits of using a RTOS or real time operating system with a microcontroller in embedded applications. An RTOS is an operating system which is optimized in order to be used in embedded and real time applications. A main advantage of an RTOS is that it ensures a timely and deterministic response to internal events or external events.

As more designs are migrating to 32-bit microcontrollers and applications that are being developed grow in complexity, using an RTOS can become beneficial for many reasons, including abstract out timing information, maintainability, clean inter-task communication interfaces, easier testing, code reusability across different projects, improved efficiency of CPU resources, flexible interrupt handling, and easier control over peripherals.

Due to the modularity of Micrium, users can choose only the components that are required for their application. Micrium’s RTOS uses the μC/OS-III which is a scalable and ROMable preemptive real-time kernel that can manage an unlimited amount of tasks.

The μC/OS-III is a third-generation kernel that offers resource management, synchronization and inter-task communication. A big advantage of the μC/OS-III is that it also offers several unique features that are not available in other real-time kernels.

Micrium’s μC/OS-III can be used with the most popular microcontrollers on the market, and comprehensive and detailed books that delve into the operation of real-time kernels are offered by Micrium with practical and working applications with hands-on working projects to allow programmers and developers to get their application running quickly.

Real-time operating systems can be useful in many applications. A good example is in the deployment of airbags during a traffic accident. In this case, a small timing error, whether the airbag is deployed too late or even too early, can cause serious and irreversible bodily injury. An RTOS is extremely useful here as it will ensure that all timing requirements are met.

In general, real-time operating systems are designed for event response applications and closed-loop control applications.

Applications that run for long periods of time can also benefit from an RTOS due to its reliability in situations where down-time is considered unacceptable or costly.

The μC/OS-III is the newest RTOS, designed to save time on embedded system projects. In addition to the features inherent in μC/OS-II, μC/OS-III also manages an unlimited number of application tasks, and features an interrupt disable time of near zero.

Future Electronics Offers Renesas’ RX Family, Ideally Suited for Sensor-Based Applications

Montreal, Canada – May 20, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, offers Renesas’ RX family, which is ideally suited for sensor-based applications.

Renesas’ industry-leading 32-bit RX MCU family is becoming the market leader in these rapidly proliferating sensor applications by providing key advantages to designers focused on sensor fusion and near-sensor processing applications.

Position sensing is becoming increasingly popular in applications such as dead reckoning, medical devices, gaming, home appliances, robotics, industrial control, low cost MEMs sensors such as accelerometers and gyroscopes are useful for position sensing and, when fused together, result in an excellent pitch and roll accuracy over a broad frequency range.

Due to its floating point unit and digital signal processing capabilities, the RX600 is able to process the sensor fusion algorithm in real time with minimal loading on the CPU. Another area of widely expanding sensor usage is related to near-sensor processing.

As sensor-based subsystems are deployed in more and more applications, the need to dramatically reduce size, weight, power and cost are becoming paramount. By moving the system’s data and signal processing closer to the sensor, system designers can decrease size, cost, latencies, bandwidth requirements, and power consumption across the entire system. A critical element of effective near-sensor processing is an ultra-low cost, low-power MCU with DSP capabilities like the Renesas RX100 series. Near-sensor processing is critical in a wide range of applications, including medical imaging, embedded vision, industrial inspection, and surveillance. The RX111 is the only entry-level 32-bit MCU that provides single-cycle multiply and hardware-based divide capability as well as an extensive DSP instruction set, making it the perfect vehicle for effective near-sensor processing requirements. Since Renesas’ extensive DSP instruction set is scalable across the entire RX family, it’s clear that RX MCUs are the obvious choice for sensor-based processing regardless of the end application.

To purchase product(s), or for more information about Renesas, the RX family, the RX63N Series, the RX100 Series, the RX MCU family, sensor-based applications, the RX600 Series, or the RX111 Series, as well as access to the world’s largest available-to-sell inventory, visit www.FutureElectronics.com.
