Chip-On-Board Illuminance Sensor

Hamamatsu Corporation (Bridgewater, NJ) has introduced a chip-on-board-type illuminance sensor called the S10604. The RoHS-compliant sensor is ideal as an energy-saving sensor for large-screen TV brightness control, as a backlight dimmer in liquid-crystal displays on cell phones, and in other applications where the level of the ambient light is measured. The S10604, which has a package size of 2.0mm × 1.25mm × 0.8mm, is the same size as typical chip resistors.

Condensation Cured Silicone

A two part, condensation cured liquid silicone system called Master Sil 150 has been developed by Master Bond, Inc (Hackensack, NJ). It can be used for the potting and encapsulation of voltage regulators, high voltage transformers, as well as optical and electronic assemblies. Master Sil 150 has good thermal stability, excellent flexibility, a Shore A hardness of 40, and its elongation at break is 230%. Low viscosity ensures complete fill-in around complicated parts to provide excellent electrical insulation and resistance to shock. The coefficient of thermal expansion is 11x10-4 cm/cm°C and its linear shrinkage is less than 0.4%.

CMOS High-Speed Camera

QZEO (San Diego, CA) has introduced a compact CMOS high-speed camera called EoSens® CL, with 500 fps at 1280(H) × 1024(V) resolution. EoSens® CL has a photo-sensitivity of 2500 ISO/ASA, which is 16 times higher than the standard photo-sensitivity of cameras in this product sector. With up to 500 frames per second at full resolution, EoSens® CL is ideal for applications involving high speed inspection and monitoring. EoSens® CL features a Camera Link® interface and a compact size of less than 2.5 in. tall.
