Linear Systems’ LSK389 series is now the industry’s first 100% noise tested Junction Field Effect Transistor 

Linear Systems’ popular LSK389 Series, Ultra-Low Noise, Monolithic Dual, N-Channel JFET is being re-released and is now 100% tested to meet or exceed noise specifications. The LSK389has the capability for individual screening of small-signal discrete components to levels below a billionth of a volt (nV/√Hz) of noise in quantities up to tens of thousands of parts.This new transistor is ideal for battery operated preamps, sonic imaging, hydrophones, chemical and radiation detectors, microphones, and more.

Features include: 

  • Ultra-Low Noise: en = 1.3nV/√Hz (typ), f = 1.0kHz and NBW = 1.0Hz Four grades of IDSS: 2.6-6.5mA, 6.0-12.0mA, 10.0-20.0mA and 17-30mA, with an IDSS match of 10 percent Tight Matching: IVGS1-2I = 15mV max 

  • High Breakdown Voltage: BVGSS = 40V max 

  • High Gain: Gfs = 20mS (typ) 

  • Relatively Low Capacitance: 25pF (typ) 

  • Available in surface mount SOIC 8L and thru-hole TO-71 6L packages 

  • Improved signal chain noise performance 

  • Better matching and thermal tracking

XP Power’s new high voltage DC-DC power module is ideal for scientific and semiconductor applications 

Introducing XP Power’s new 30 Watt DC-DC power module, the HRL30 series. The new module generates up to 6kVDC from a single 24VDC input providing accurate high voltage output for various applications, including mass spectrometry, electrostatic chucks, photomultiplier tubes and more.

The series features 22 models with a range of fully controllable outputs from 0-200VCD to 0-6kVDC available in both positive and negative polarities. The module can be powered by the 24V rail thanks to its wide input range of 22 to 30V, and its inbuilt precision +5VDC reference provides a stable supply to control the high voltage output. 

Key features include fully programmable output current and voltage, ability to operate across temperatures ranging from -40 C to +70 C, and voltage and current monitor outputs for remote monitoring and easy systems integration.  

The HRL30 series is available now for $423.56 for 500 pieces. Find more information at https://www.xppower.com/product/HRL30-Series.

Trinamic’s new driver solutions for high-power stepper motors now available 

TRINAMIC Motion Controls GmbH & Co. KG has two new drivers for high-power stepper motors: the TCMCM-1278 and PD60/86-1278 PANdrive. Each encased in special housing, the TMCM-1278, is a motion controller and driver in a single module designed for NEMA 23/24 motors. At the same time, the PD60/86-1278 is a mechatronic solution that mounts on a NEMA 24/34 PANdrive motor. Both drivers are controlled by a CAN interface and support Trinamic’s TMCL firmware and CANopen.

Features include built-in StealthChop and SpreadCycle for quiet and precise motor operation, integrated SixPoint ramp generator, supply voltage of 12 to 48V DC, and CAN bus interface with TMCL or CANopen protocol. The I/Os can also be used as general-purpose inputs or ABN encoder inputs for additional drive monitoring. These drivers are ideal for applications that require high-power stepper motors, such as lab automation, manufacturing, and CNC machines.  

The TMCM-1278 and PD86-3-1278 PANdrive are available now. Find more information at https://www.trinamic.com/products/modules/details/tmcm-1278/.
