Future Electronics Delivers New uSLIC Himalaya Power Modules from Maxim Integrated

Montreal, Canada – June 28, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, now carries the new uSLIC Himalaya power modules from Maxim Integrated.

uSLIC is an exciting new addition to Maxim’s already popular and well-established Himalaya family of integrated inductor modules. The MAXM17532 and MAXM15462 are buck converter modules with a 4-42V input rating, and rated for 100 and 300ma of current. The wide voltage range on the input side means they can cover many of the common industry power rails, particularly in the industrial and medical space, but they can also be used as an LDO replacement.

These modules differentiate themselves by their exceedingly small packaging. While many buck converters without an inductor are larger, Maxim Micro-SLIC modules integrate the inductor in a tiny 2.6×3.0mm package. This smaller size is a key benefit in the industrial space, where industry 4.0 is driving a need to add greater functionality to a design in a smaller space.

Micro-SLIC modules are very robust, complying with Class B Conducted and Radiated Emissions and passing Drop, Shock, and Vibration Standards. They also boast 90% peak efficiency, which makes them an attractive option for thermal reasons.

Future Electronics Has New Standalone Wi-Fi Module and Combo WI-FI and Bluetooth Module from Panasonic

Montreal, Canada – June 28, 2018 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, now carries Panasonic’s new fully embedded standalone Wi-Fi module and combo Wi-Fi and Bluetooth module.

The PAN9420 is a fully embedded standalone Wi-FI module device perfect for design engineers with limited Wi-Fi experience or for applications that must be implemented with minimal time and effort.

The PAN9026 is a Wi-Fi radio module integrating Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity that allows applications such as Smart Energy and home gateways to manage multiple devices and appliances. The combination of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth provides the highest flexibility for connectivity.

Both modules are excellent solutions for highly integrated and cost-effective applications such as white goods, vending machines and home appliances.

The PAN9420 is a 2.4 GHz 802.11 b/g/n Embedded Wi-Fi Module with integrated stack and API that minimizes firmware development and includes a full security suite. The module includes a fully shielded case, integrated crystal oscillators and a chip antenna. The PAN9420 Series combines a high-performance CPU, high-sensitivity wireless radio, baseband processor, medium access controller, encryption unit, boot ROM with patching capability, internal SRAM and in-system programmable flash memory.

The PAN9026 is a dual band 2.4/5 GHz 802.11 a/b/g/n module integrating Wi-Fi and Bluetooth. The simultaneous and independent operation of the two standards enables high data rates (802.11n) and low-power operation (Bluetooth Low Energy). Integrated power management, a fast dual-core CPU, 802.11i security standard support, and high-speed data interfaces deliver the performance for the speed, reliability, and quality requirements of next generation products.
