Discrete Amplification Geiger Mode Arrays

Amplification Technologies Corp. (“ATC”) (Bensalem, PA) announced the availability of a new family of Discrete Amplification Photon Detector (DAPD) Geiger mode avalanche photodiode arrays for 3D LIDAR and other applications. LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) range finding systems have been in use for many years for civil and defense applications, measuring distance using a pulse of a laser beam aimed toward an object and measuring the time of flight of the reflected beam.

Packaging Inspection Technology

Rudolph Technologies, Inc. (Wilmington MA) recently unveiled its new patented Clearfind™ technology, which can detect organic defects that are difficult or impossible to see with conventional white-light imaging techniques. Organic contaminants are often the root cause of field failures, which occur after the material has been exposed to operating conditions for extended periods.

Reader ICs

LEGIC Identsystems Ltd. (Zurich, Switzerland) recently introduced its new 6000 series reader ICs that combine RFID, BLE and a Secure Element into one chip. LEGIC’s technology platform is made up of five basic components: LEGIC Connect, mobile SDK, reader ICs, smartcard ICs and a key and authorisation management. With LEGIC Connect, authorisations can be granted and withdrawn easily on a smartphone. The app used for this is based on the LEGIC’s software development kit. Furthermore, mobile ID rights are then processed by a reader with LEGIC technology. The key and authorisation management make it possible to create a secure ID solution easily, without having to grapple with cryptography.

Miniature HV SMT Gas Discharge Tube

Littelfuse, Inc. (Chicago, IL) has introduced its first high voltage, surface-mount gas discharge tube (GDT) with two squared terminals that is capable of withstanding surge currents of 3kA@8/20μs in a small form factor. CG4 Series Two-Terminal High Voltage Miniature Gas Discharge Tubes are high voltage (800V – 3000V) devices designed for over-voltage protection for high isolation applications. They help protect personnel, equipment and circuitry from abnormally high voltages caused by lightning or electrical transients.

Solid State Tape Drive Replacement

Solid State Disks Ltd (Reading, UK) has launched SCSIFlash-Tape, which provides a CompactFlash-based, solid state replacement for traditional SCSI-based, electro-mechanical tape drives on legacy computer-based mil/aero systems that are either obsolete or nearing the end of their life. SCSIFlash-Tape provides a drop-in replacement for the popular DDS DAT, DLT and QIC tape drives on a variety of host systems. SCSIFlash-Tape only requires a 5V power supply and will also fit into a standard floppy disk drive slot using the same fixings. Featuring a small 3.5-inch footprint and using a standard 50 pin SCSI-1 or SCSI-2 connection, SCSIFlash-Tape boasts data transfer rates up to 6 Mbytes/s sustained.
