Future Electronics Offers AS5600 Series Programmable Contactless Potentiometers from ams

Montreal, Canada – December 15, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced immediate availability of the AS5600 Series of programmable contactless potentiometers from ams.

The AS5600 is an easy to program magnetic rotary position sensor with a high-resolution 12-bit analog or PWM output. This contactless system measures the absolute angle of a diametric magnetized on-axis magnet. The AS5600 is designed for contactless potentiometer applications and its robust design eliminates the influence of any homogenous external stray magnetic fields.

The industry-standard I2C interface supports simple user programming of non-volatile parameters without requiring a dedicated programmer. By default the output represents a range from 0 to 360 degrees. It is also possible to define a smaller range to the output by programming a zero angle (start position) and a maximum angle (stop position).

The AS5600 is also equipped with a smart low power mode feature to automatically reduce the power consumption. An input pin (DIR) selects the polarity of the output with regard to rotation direction. If DIR is connected to ground, the output value increases with clockwise rotation. If DIR is connected to VDD, the output value increases with counterclockwise rotation.

Future Electronics Promotes the DG1408 Series from Vishay

Montreal, Canada – December 10, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, has announced Vishay’s DG1408 Series.

The DG1408 is a precision analog multiplexer comprising eight single-ended channels. The DG1409 is a dual four single-ended channels analog multiplexer. Built on a new CMOS process, the Vishay Siliconix DG1408 and DG1409 offer low on-resistance of 3.2 Ω. The low and flat resistance over the full signal range provides excellent linearity and low signal distortion. The new CMOS platform also ensures ultra low power dissipation, minimized parasitic capacitance, and low charge injection.

The DG1408 and DG1409 can operate from either a single 4.5 V to 24 V power supply, or from dual ±4.5 V to ±15 V power supplies. The DG1408 connects one of eight inputs to a common output as determined by a 3-bit binary address (A0, A1, A2). The DG1409 connects one of four inputs to a common output for both multiplexers as determined by a 2-bit binary address (A0 and A1).

Break-before-make switching action protects against momentary crosstalk between adjacent channels. The part does not require a VL logic supply, while all digital inputs have 0.8 V and 2 V logic thresholds to ensure low-voltage TTL / CMOS compatibility. Together with the compact package, these make the part a great fit for battery operated systems.

The DG1408 and DG1409 on channel conduct signal equally well in both directions. In the off state each channel blocks voltages up to the power supply rails. An enable (EN) function allows the user to reset the multiplexer/demultiplexer to all switches off for stacking several devices.

The advance performance of low insertion loss and low distortion make the device ideal for signal switching and relay replacement in a wide range of applications.

DG1408 and DG1409 are available in RoHS-compliant, halogen-free QFN16, 4 mm x 4 mm packages.

The main benefits of the DG1408 Series are low insertion loss, low distortion, low power consumption, compact solution, and low charge injection over the full signal range.

Applications for the DG1408 Series include medical and healthcare equipment, data acquisition systems, industrial control and automation, test and measurement equipment, communication systems, battery powered systems, sample and hold circuits, audio and video signal switching, and relay replacement.

Future Electronics Shares How to Run IR’s Split-Phase Induction Motor with Three-Phase Inverter

Montreal, Canada – August 29, 2014 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, along with International Rectifier, is sharing helpful information on how to run a split-phase induction motor with a three-phase inverter.

A motor control IC is a convenient way to implement custom motor drive algorithms such as the single-phase induction motor (SPIM) control. A generalized control algorithm, implemented and tested in an application environment proves the concept of variable speed control of the SPIM.

There are several reasons to use a three-phase inverter to run a single-phase induction motor, including isolation from variable power grids, reduction of peak currents and elimination of the starting capacitor.

Inverterization of motor drives is increasing due to government regulation and energy efficiency concerns. In the case of motor drives, these factors also push designs toward variable speed AC motors, and permanent magnet motors in particular. In some cases, however, design requirements dictate that a split-phase induction motor is retained, but driven by an inverter. Besides possible energy savings, the inverter may be required in order to eliminate the starting capacitor, reduce peak currents, or provide isolation from variable power grids.

Single-phase motors are ubiquitous, cheap and reliable. These motors generally have a start winding and run winding which are 90° offset from each other and incorporate a resistor or capacitor for starting purposes. Often, the start winding is disabled after motor startup by a centrifugal switch or positive thermal coefficient thermistor. Keeping the start winding engaged can increase the torque supplied by the motor.

International Rectifier’s IRMCS3043 Reference Design Kit includes the IRMCF343 motor control IC and the IRAMX16UP60A 3-phase inverter module in a single shunt configuration. The single shunt resistor provides current sensing for inverter protection (as well as for current feedback for closed loop motor control).

The IRMCF300 series of motor control ICs feature the Motion Control Engine (MCE), which contains hardware implemented motor control calculation as well as a programmable layer for customized algorithm elements. The custom program is defined by a graphical user interface where mathematical and control blocks can be connected together to implement the design. A compiler takes the block diagram as input and outputs a program that can be run on the MCE.
