LeddarTech's rugged Leddar Sight 2D solid-state LiDAR sensor comes housed in a waterproof enclosure and outfitted with flash illumination to detect objects and obstacles accurately. The company designed the sensor platform for mobility, ITS, and industrial-system developers for harsh environments.

The Leddar Sight sensor is IP67/IP69-rated against dust ingress, immersion, and pressurized water streams, making it ideal for indoor applications such as industrial automation. It’s also suitable for various outdoor applications such as autonomous navigation, obstacle detection, collision avoidance, precision maneuvering, speed enforcement, and automated tolling. The 2D LiDAR platform offers up to 400,000 hours MTBF, provides high EMC standards, and tolerates a wide range of temperatures.

Maxon’s EPOS4 Micro 24/5 CAN is a miniaturized position controller suitable for both brushed DC and brushless EC motors (BLDC) of up to 120 W. The board can take advantage of comprehensive feedback options such as Hall sensors and digital incremental and SSI absolute encoders. Dual Loop, Field Oriented Control (FOC), feedforward, and observer control allow for control in various applications, including automation and mechatronics. The EPOS4 comes equipped with digital and analog inputs and outputs, which are configurable and ideally matched to the numerous functions and operating modes of the CiA-402 positioning controller.

The controller can take advantage of Maxon’s EPOS Studio start-up software, as well as libraries and programming examples that easily integrate into a myriad of master systems, all of which can be accessed free of charge.

Rohde & Schwarz's R&S IQW100 wideband I/Q data recorder is designed to simulate real-world test environments in combination with R&S signal analyzers and generators. The IQW100 supports recording and replaying signals at bandwidths up to 200 MHz and sampling rates up to 250 MS/s. Users can record signals garnered with the analyzer in any given environment and then replay the generator's recorded signals. The acquired signals are transferred to the R&S IQW100 using the standard digital I/Q interface and stored as IQ data. Regenerating those recorded signals is done in the same fashion, transferred using the same standard digital I/Q interface to the signal generator. The IQW100 can also handle signals with a maximum bandwidth of 160 MHz, making it suitable for all WLAN/Wi-Fi signals and all mobile standards in current commercial use.

Signal Transformer (a Bel Group) has launched its SPDL Series line of miniaturized Surface Mount (SMD) common-mode chokes designed for network communication applications, including automotive (AECQ-200) infotainment, multimedia, and a myriad of computer products. The new series features effective differential-mode noise suppression for high-speed signal lines and supports EMI suppression for Ethernet, CAN, Flexray, USB and proprietary data signals. The chokes feature an impedance range of 90 to 2200 Ω, have a rated current capacity from 150 mA to 400 mA and have an operating temperature range from -40°C to +125°C.

For more information, see the product datasheet.

STMicroelectronics now offers a new family of ST Intelligent and Integrated Gallium Nitride (GaN) solutions that combine power and intelligence for automotive applications. The STi2GaN series combines a monolithic power stage with drivers and protections utilizing GaN technology, along with SiP (System in a Package) solutions for application-specific ICs (ASICs) that can handle additional processing and control circuitry.

The solutions also take advantage of ST’s innovative bond-wire-free packaging technology, which increases its robust design, reliability, and performance. While the STi2GaN series is targeted mainly for automotive applications, they can also be utilized for onboard chargers, LIDAR, DC-DC converters, Class D amplifiers, and power-conversion systems.
