With the Mercury+ XU1, Enclustra presents at Embedded World 2018 in Nuremberg at booth 3-210 its fastest SoC module based on the Xilinx Zynq UltraScale+ MPSoC.
It accommodates 6 ARM cores, a Mali 400MP2 GPU, up to 4 GB of extremely fast DDR4 ECC SDRAM, numerous standard interfaces, 294 user I/Os and up to 747,000 LUT4 equivalents – all on an area smaller than a credit card. http://bit.ly/2n8ONzN
New 0402DC Series ceramic wirewound chip inductors offer the industry’s highest Q factors in an 0402 (1005) size – up to 162 at 2.4 GHz – for super low loss in high frequency circuits.
It is offered in 26 standard inductance values ranging from 3.0 to 120 nH. An additional 73 values are available upon request, including 0.1 nH increments from 2.8 nH to 10 nH. Most values are available with 2% tolerance. The 0402DC Series features a wirewound construction for extremely high self resonance – up to 16 GHz. It also offers DCR as low as 37 mΩ, significantly lower than other 0402-sized chip inductors. 0402DC Series chip inductors are ideal for impedance matching circuits for low band (700 – 960MHz) and high band (1710 – 2700MHz) antennas. Its 0402-sized package is perfect for smartphones and tablets. 0402DC Series inductors feature RoHS compliant, matte tin over nickel over silver-platinum-glass frit terminations and offer a maximum reflow temperature of 260°C. http://bit.ly/2n1Rvqy

0.80 mm and 1.00 mm Pitch Edge Card Sockets with High-Speed Edge Rate® Contacts
Samtec has expanded their line of edge card connectors with 0.80 mm and 1.00 mm pitch sockets designed for higher speed applications and optimal mating alignment.
The 0.80 mm pitch socket (HSEC8-DP Series) is a differential pair version of Samtec’s popular Edge Rate® 0.80 mm pitch sockets. Rated for speeds to 28 Gbps NRZ/56 Gbps PAM4, the socket features Edge Rate® contacts designed to increase cycle life and decrease crosstalk. The double row socket, with 8 to 56 total pairs and optional rugged weld tabs, mates with standard 1.60 mm (.062″) thick cards. http://bit.ly/2rhXA71
In an increasingly security aware IoT landscape, IoT developers face seemingly conflicting demands for rapid development and tighter security for all phases of the application lifecycle. While many emerging solutions come with mechanisms for encryption, IoT designs need to be able to address a wider range of security threats.
To allow them to do so, IoT applications need to build on a root-of-trust established with secure boot and firmware updates at the device level.
This article will show how, using a single security device from Microchip Technology, developers can rapidly implement a range of security mechanisms needed to ensure IoT application security. http://bit.ly/2rc7t5M
Digi-Key’s Three Part Series Now Available
The multitude of short-range wireless technologies provides engineers with optimized solutions for their applications but makes careful selection paramount.
Part 1 of this three-part series details the major low-power wireless options available to designers. Part 2 considers the design fundamentals of each technology such as chip availability, protocol stacks, application software, design tools, antenna requirements, and power consumption/battery life. Part 3 of the series considers current and future developments designed to meet the challenges of the IoT for each technology. It also includes an introduction to some newer interfaces and protocols, such as Wi-Fi HaLow and Thread.

There are plenty of Top 10 lists at Samtec that would make for fascinating reading. Off the top of my head (no pun intended) there’s Top 10 Stupid Comments in Meetings (I would hold about seven of the ten spots), or Top 10 Annoying Coworkers (I like to think I would only be listed once, and hopefully no higher than #5).
But, for job security’s sake, I’ll stick with a more traditional Top 10 list. Here’s a list of the Top 10 most popular Samtec products and product families in 2017. I’m writing this because I am asked frequently by customers what are our most popular products……….
