Future Electronics and Microsemi Creative Board Subject of Feature Article in ElectronicDesign

Montreal, Canada – December 18, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, recently collaborated with Microsemi in developing a Creative Board, which is the topic of an article published on December 11, 2017, written by ElectronicDesign’s Senior Technology Editor, William Wong.

Wong used Microsemi’s Mi-V ecosystem and the Future Electronics/Microsemi Creative Board, while exploring the rise in popularity of RISC-V.

The Microsemi Creative Board from Future Electronics contains an IGLOO2 or SmartFusion2 FPGA. It has connectors for a Pmod, mikroBUS, and Arduino Shield. It also includes a six-channel, sigma-delta analog to digital converter, a 64-Mb serial flash, and 64 MB of DDR2 memory.

In his article, Wong takes the reader through his steps in exploring the board’s capabilities, assessing its effectiveness in FPGA design, and analyzing the interface performance.

He comments on the ease of adding UARTS, and provides an in-depth look into the installation process and testing of examples. He cites that it is simple to add sensors and controls to the system. Overall, he reports that the platform provides the opportunity “to do some interesting projects that take advantage of an FPGA.”

Future Electronics Immediate Shipping Availability of MEAN WELL’s New LRS Series

MONTREAL – December 14, 2017 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is offering immediate shipping availability of MEAN WELL’s LRS Series new generation industrial standard power supplies.

MEAN WELL recently unveiled its new generation 35~350W “without PFC” LRS enclosed type family. The LRS family exploits a streamlined circuitry design that lowers the electrical component count, and high-degree automation is introduced which significantly raises the cost competitiveness and production yield.

Compared to the former generation, the RS series, it has a higher efficiency and is better miniaturized. It also has the supreme attributes such as low no load consumption (< 0.2~0.75W), 1U low profile (30mm) and the capability of operating at altitudes up to 5000m. In addition, this family complies with various safety regulation standards, including IEC/EN/UL60950-1, IEC/EN61558-1, IEC/EN61558-2-16, IEC/EN60335-1, GB4943, etc.

It not only satisfies every kind of industrial related applications but can also be utilized for household appliances, and it thus accounts for a broader coverage for diverse industries.

The LRS-35 Series is a 35W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V. The LRS-50 Series is a 50W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V. The LRS-75 Series is a 75W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V.

The LRS-100 Series is a 100W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 3.3V, 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V. The LRS-150 Series and LRS-150R Series are 150W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. The entire series provides an output voltage of 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V. The LRS-200 Series is a 200W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 3.3V, 4.2V, 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V. The LRS-350 Series is a 350W single-output enclosed type power supply with 30mm of low profile design. Adopting the full range 85 – 264 VAC input, the entire series provides an output voltage of 3.3V, 4.2V, 5V, 12V, 15V, 24V, 36V and 48V.
