Just a few months away from EDS 2019 at the Mirage in Las Vegas! The Spectrum team will be in attendance!
Heavy equipment used in harsh, dirty, dusty, and wet conditions requires switches that are sealed to resist this kind of environment. They need to be resistant and perform reliably throughout the life of the application.
C&K’s PT series offers sealed power toggle switches with patented single piece injection molded panel and bushing seal. Ideal as a rugged panel mount, multi-function switch, it is suited to the performance requirements for off-road heavy equipment and harsh environments.
The PT series has a versatile IP66 / IP68 seal rating for all switch models and is fully tested to IP66 and IP68 when mounted into a sealed panel. PT series electrical rating is 15 amps for maintained functions and 10 amps for momentary functions, and is IEC/UL 61058-1 certified. The patented seal design ensures Power Toggle will function as required in harsh environments and stand up to powerful water jet cleaning. Its housing design which is smaller than some competitors gives valuable panel space back to the design engineers.
Think of any application requiring a rugged, panel mount, multi-function power toggle operating in harsh, dirty/dusty, wet conditions – PT series is the perfect Sealed Power Toggle switch.
· IP66 / IP68 versatile rating withstands harsh outdoor environments, intense, wet weather, wind-blown, dust, dirt
· IEC/UL 61058-1 certified has global acceptance with no additional testing needed
· Integrated panel, bushing/toggle seal for extra protection
· Superior oïl and fuel resistance
· Off-road, Construction / Agricultural vehicles
· Material handling equipment
· Articulating, scissor, and bucket lift controls
· Outdoor industrial Equipment
· Lift gate controls

Aluminum Housed Wirewound With Flying Leads
Ohmite is expanding it’s popular line of
Aluminum housed resistors. The Ohmite ARG series is a high wattage wirewound resistor sealed in an aluminum extrusion. The aluminum housed design is appealing to power engineers for multiple reasons. Key design aspects include a sealed design, flying leads, and heatsinking ability. The ARG series is capable of dissipating 150-400 watts depending on resistor length and is available in 6 sizes. Ohmite offers other aluminum housed resistors and should be considered in high power industrial applications. Ohmite distribution partners can expect to receive the NPI package shortly on the ARG Series.

Designed and patented for use on commercial and military aviation systems nearly seven decades ago, the Cannon D-Subminiature Connector was originally developed as a smaller, lightweight alternative to the large, heavy circular plugs of the time. This small, robust rectangular interconnect was soon used across a number of applications and industries. Today, we offer a range of D-Sub styles, sizes, configurations and accessories, with a global reach through global sales & distribution partners.

Flexible, low-power, always-on, on-device AI is increasingly a requirement in Edge devices that are battery operated or have thermal constraints. The new features of the Lattice sensAI stack are optimized to address this challenge, delivering improved accuracy, scalable performance, and ease-of-use, while still consuming only a few milliwatts of power. The updates to the sensAI stack include:
Software Tools Updated – Neural network compiler tool with improved ease of use both Caffe and TensorFlow support for iCE40 UltraPlus FPGAs
Today’s soldier-worn applications require components that are miniaturized, lightweight and capable of withstanding harsh environments while concurrently pushing data transfer rates, enabling high-speed protocols and delivering increased bandwidth.

Lattice Radiant Software was rolled out earlier this year with the goal of making development and debugging with iCE40 UltraPlus a breeze. Radiant by itself is not enough to get users moving quickly, so we provided IP for the basic building blocks of the iCE40 UltraPlus device including PLL, DSP, Memory, I2C and SPI.
One of the values of Radiant is the ability to distribute IP and reference designs. We promised over the next 2 quarters more reference designs would be ported from iCECUBE2 and delivered for users to take advantage of Radiant.
During Q2 we converted five reference designs:
§ Single Wire Aggregation – eliminates signal congestion
§ Sensor Data Buffer – Makes iCE40 UltraPlus into a sensor hub
§ 6:1 Microphone Aggregation – Enables connecting microphones over SPI bus
§ SPI to MIPI-DSI – Connects a MIPI display to a process without DSI interface
These Reference designs and others were all covered in this white paper written to highlight the applications possible with the iCE40 UltraPlus FPGA. Over the next quarter more reference designs will be provided to solve issues and enable new ideas.

FCSL Current Sense New Product Announcement
New 0.5% Tolerance and New Sizes Product Extension
Ohmite is expanding it’s popular FCSL series. The FCSL series will now include a 0.5% tolerance option. In addition to this new tolerance, Ohmite will also offer two new sizes in this popular series. The FCSL20 and FCSL32 are common 0508 and 0612 sizes respectively. The call out is reversed as the leads are on the long edge of the chips for better current handling and cooling. The FCSL20 carries a power rating of 1 watt with a max current rating of 45 amps. The FCSL32 carries a power rating of 1.5 watts with a max current rating of 64 amps. The growth of the current sense market remains strong. With more applications using current sense resistors, the market demands more specific options leading to product extensions and new product series to accommodate. Ohmite will be expanding its current sense offering as the year continues. Ohmite distribution partners can expect to receive the NPI package shortly on the tolerance and size extensions.
