Future Electronics Promotes the MIC28304 Evaluation Board from Micrel

Montreal, Canada – July 11, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, promotes the MIC28304 Evaluation Board from Micrel.

The MIC28304 from Micrel is a synchronous step down regulator module, featuring a unique adaptive ON-time control architecture. The module incorporates a DC-to-DC controller, power MOSFETs, bootstrap diode, bootstrap capacitor and an inductor in a single package. The MIC28304 operates over an input supply range from 4.5V to 70V and can be used to supply up to 3A of output current. The output voltage is adjustable down to 0.8V with a guaranteed accuracy of ±1%. The device operates with programmable switching frequency from 200kHz to 600kHz.

The MIC28304-1 has the HyperLight Load® architecture, so it can operate in pulse skipping mode at light load. However, it operates in fixed frequency CCM mode from medium to heavy load. The MIC28304-2 has Hyper Speed Control™ architecture, which operates in fixed frequency CCM mode under all load conditions.

The basic parameters of the evaluation board are:

  • Input: 7V to 70V
  • Output: 0.8V to 5V at 3A
  • 600kHz Switching Frequency (adjustable 200kHz to 600kHz)

The MIC28304-1 and MIC28304-2 evaluation board requires only a single power supply with at least 10A current capability. No external linear regulator is required to power the internal biasing of the IC because the MIC28304 has internal PVDD LDO.

To purchase product(s) or for more information about Micrel Semiconductor, the MIC28304 Series, Analog & Power, DC/DC Converters, Evaluation Boards, Power Modules, or the HyperLight Load® Family, as well as access to the world’s largest available-to-sell inventory, visit www.FutureElectronics.com.

Future Electronics Announces the New Multi-Touch Human Interface Device Technology from Grayhill

Montreal, Canada – February 6, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is pleased to announce new technology from Grayhill which introduces a new way to control imaging equipment.

After decades of the same kinds of controls being used to interact with diagnostic imaging equipment, Grayhill has introduced new technology that offers healthcare professionals the potential to do much more with the images captured by diagnostic imaging equipment.

Through human gestures, touches, and motions, information can now be conveyed with a single device that tells diagnostic imaging equipment how to maneuver and what to do.

Grayhill’s new multi-touch human interface devices (MT-HIDs), along with their Instinct software, bring this technology to the world of diagnostic imaging. MT-HIDs are now being integrated with diagnostic imaging equipment to read finger gestures and movements like a Smartphone would.

“An MT-HID tracks finger movements on the touch surface, and a software library is incorporated to interpret the gestures. The sensor data created from the device touchpad is fed to an application or operating system. The software then translates the tracked data into a command,” explained Robert Kerner, R&D Manager for Grayhill, Inc.

Kerner continued, “Software can be modified so the equipment designer, and in some cases, healthcare professionals, can determine which gestures will be recognized, and which commands those movements and gestures will trigger. The touchpad device and software can be used to perform a variety of functions, such as image viewing, image rotation and manipulation, menu selection, navigation, and search, depending on how the technology is integrated into diagnostic imaging equipment.”

The functions of Grayhill’s MT-HIDs are developed utilizing a software development kit (part numbers T101-DEV1 and T201-DEV1). These design tools provide engineers with a common development platform for prototyping and evaluating different gestures for machine input. In addition, the kits include access to example projects with step-by-step instructions. Each kit is comprised of a mounted MT-HID, a standard USB cable and demo software. The design kits are in stock with immediate availability from Future Electronics.

For more information about Grayhill, T201-DEV1, T101-DEV1, analog & power, proximity sensing, and medical imaging technology, or to purchase product, visit www.FutureElectronics.com.
