CIPOS Mini IPMs and OPTIGA Trust M Security from Infineon Featured in FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring Infineon’s CIPOS Mini Intelligent Power Modules and the OPTIGA Trust M security solution in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – January 02, 2020 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring intelligent power modules and IoT security solutions from Infineon in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

Infineon’s energy-efficient CIPOS Mini Intelligent Power Modules (IPMs) integrate the power and control components of an inverter, motor or Power Factor Correction (PFC) power stage in a single package, enabling designers to achieve higher reliability and to optimize PCB size and system cost.

The high level of integration in a CIPOS Mini IPM simplifies the design of power systems and markedly shortens time to market. These IPMs may be used to control AC motors in variable-speed drives consuming up to 3kW.

Infineon’s new OPTIGA Trust M solution helps manufacturers of IoT devices connected to cloud-computing services to enhance the security of their products while also improving system performance.

The OPTIGA Trust M SLS32AIA series, a single-chip security controller solution, stores unique device credentials, and enables devices to connect to the cloud up to ten times faster than software-only alternatives.

When embedded in an IoT end-point device, an SLS32AIA chip can enable security functions including mutual authentication, secure communication, data store protection, lifecycle management, power management, secure updates and platform integrity protection.

Infineon’s Shield2Go board for the OPTIGA Trust M security chip supports fast evaluation and development of IoT end-point devices which require secure cloud connections. It features one OPTIGA Trust M security chip on an easy-to-handle PCB.

Design engineers can build systems by combining multiple Shield2Go boards with the Infineon My IoT adapter board. The adapter board is compatible with the Arduino form factor, and enables fast development in a familiar project environment.

Advanced Tech View on Edge Computing for AI Featured in Latest FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring a Technical View on different approaches to edge computing for AI applications in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – December 28, 2019 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring an in-depth Technical View about different approaches to edge computing for AI applications in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

Sophisticated and complex applications of Artificial Intelligence (AI), such as autonomous vehicles, have to take safety-critical decisions in nanoseconds without ever making a mistake. The lives of an autonomous vehicle’s occupants, as well as other road users, depend on the ability of high-powered Graphics Processing Units (GPUs) and complex neural network algorithms to recognize in real time objects such as pedestrians, cyclists, traffic lights and road warning signs.

For many applications, the right choice might be to perform AI inferencing at the edge, rather than in the cloud. The hardware to enable this exists today, and it is the same hardware with which embedded developers are already familiar. Some applications do not even need a neural network, and where a simpler algorithm is effective, the hardware to support it can be simpler too.

This Technical View by Future’s in-house experts explores the advantages of performing AI inferencing at the edge. It includes an overview of the various hardware requirements and options for different inferencing techniques, and shows how predictive maintenance applications can run well on an MCU, and why image recognition is well-suited to an FPGA.

Advanced Tech View on New Applications for UV LEDs Featured in Latest FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring a Technical View on UV LEDs in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – December 16, 2019 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring an in-depth Technical View from François Mirand, EMEA Technical Director at Future Lighting Solutions, on the adoption of UV LEDs in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

“One battle is already over,” writes Mirand. “The LED has defeated conventional visible light-source technologies in every important indoor and outdoor general lighting application. But what about applications for invisible light in the ultraviolet part of the spectrum?”

The advantages of LEDs over conventional lighting include a small light-emitting surface and small overall package size, long operating life, low maintenance and repair costs, low-voltage operation and power consumption, tight control of the wavelength of the emitted light, and freedom from harmful chemical components.

Mirand explores the various ways that the same characteristics that have made LEDs so attractive for general lighting can be applied to UV lighting applications, including curing, disinfection, chemical analysis and synthesis.

“With the support of Future Lighting Solutions’ optical technology experts and software tools, designers of UV lighting equipment can now use the latest UV LEDs in confidence, benefiting from the space, cost and power savings promised by this technology,” Mirand writes.

Advanced Power Solutions from Microchip Featured in FTM by Future Electronics

Summary: Future Electronics is featuring Microchip’s advanced power solutions in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine.

Montreal, Canada – December 13, 2019 – Future Electronics, a global leading distributor of electronic components, is featuring advanced power solutions from Microchip in the latest issue of Future Technology Magazine (FTM).

Microchip’s MCP1792 and MCP1793 are high-voltage, Low Dropout (LDO) regulators which supply a maximum output current of 100mA from a wide input-voltage range of 4.5V-55V. This capability makes the LDOs ideal for use in 12V, 24V or 48V power rails, and in high-voltage battery packs.

Microchip’s new UPD301A is a stand-alone USB Type-C Power Delivery controller which greatly simplifies the implementation of basic USB Type-C PD charging functionality. It supports both single- and dual-port operation.

Microchip’s USB705x family is a set of USB 3.1 SmartHub devices with integrated support for Power Delivery. They include two unique features which simplify USB Type-C PD implementations: HostFlexing and PDBalancing.

HostFlexing simplifies the experience of using a docking station, making all USB Type-C ports function as the ‘notebook’ port. PDBalancing provides a means for manufacturers to manage system power centrally, saving consumers money by enabling them to charge multiple USB PD devices with less power overall.
