Cypress Semiconductor Corp. expanded its automotive solutions portfolio with a capacitive touchscreen controller that delivers best-in-class waterproofing, glove touch and resistance to electromagnetic interference. The EMI resistance is driven by Cypress’ proprietary AutoArmor™ technology. The new Automotive TrueTouch® CYAT8165X controllers, which target screens up to 8.5 inches, join a portfolio that includes Cypress’ Automotive TrueTouch […]
Robotic race cars make clever use of software and infrared optics to follow lines slyly hidden on the track. Leland Teschler, Executive Editor The Overdrive starter kit we analyzed contains sections of track that can go together in various ways and can even include jumps. An interesting feature of the track is that its sections […]
by Christian Filip, Mentor Graphics Today’s electronic products are becoming increasingly dense and complex, making it ever more challenging to meet performance targets. High-speed design requires fast and accurate simulations from the design planning phase, throughout the design process, and in the post-layout stage, to ensure that products can be manufactured and work as intended […]
Fairview Microwave Inc., a supplier of on-demand microwave and RF components, has introduced a new series of 8-bit programmable phase shifters that are adjustable over a full 360° range. These three new models can produce a discrete set of phase states of up to 256 total steps in 1.4° increments with superior accuracy and minimal phase shift […]
