    Zyxel to showcase new heights of mobility and flexibility at Mobile World Congress 2017

    Providing seamless communications, indoors, outdoors and on the move will be the watchword for Zyxel’s exhibition offering in Barcelona

    New Delhi, January 19, 2017: Zyxel Communications, will showcase its Mobile Access (LTE) and In-Building Coverage solutions at this year’s Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. As the industry’s “Networking Ally,” Zyxel is refocusing its efforts on providing solutions to address the overriding concerns of network operators: how they can help their customers achieve the best mobility and flexibility in their communications.
    Featured at the show will be Zyxel’s Mobile Access (LTE) solutions, specifically targeting areas of the market where fixed broadband networking is difficult and provision is traditionally limited. Zyxel’s brand new 4G LTE-A CAT6 indoor IAD, which provides users with high-speed LTE and high-end Wi-Fi, is set to make its debut appearance at MWC 2017, proving that Zyxel is on course to revolutionize the way in which consumers can seamlessly access 4G LTE networks.
    We aim to solve the issues that operators have struggled with in the past – providing connectivity when their customers are in areas where fixed broadband is unavailable”, said Wayne Hwang, Vice President of Zyxel’s Service Provider Strategic Business Unit. “With our Mobile Access solutions, we can support operators in building strong and inclusive mobile broadband networks.”
    Also on show at MWC will be Zyxel’s In-Building Coverage solutions, designed to meet the challenge of mobile signal coverage within large buildings. Mobile users moving inside a building often find that signal strength is not as good as outdoors. Zyxel’s In-Building Coverage Solutions, Zone DAS and the MIMO Repeater, eliminate this problem and provide seamless communications even in high-demand environments such as airports, shopping malls, hotels and transport hubs.
    At MWC 2017, Zyxel will emphasize its crucial role as a solution provider of the networks of the future – a future which will become increasingly accessible and viable for all customers, no matter what previous difficulties they have faced.
    Zyxel will be exhibiting at Booth 5G10, Hall 5, at MWC 2017, which takes place at the Fira Gran Via, in Barcelona, from Monday, February 27 to Thursday, March 2, 2017.

    Mouser Now Offering Easy Product Search by Images

    January 18, 2017 – Mouser Electronics, Inc., constantly improving how customers can browse and search for products, announces a new way to visually find and select the right products on its industry-leading website, Mouser.com. With a few simple clicks, Mouser customers can now find product information via Images, as well as by Datasheets or by Newest Products — in addition to searching for products through the site’s parametric Product Search. The Images tab at Mouser.com is the newest gateway to Mouser’s extensive product library, containing tens of thousands of photos.

     

    ImageSearch“The new Images tab lets customers to browse by using any search or navigation function,” said Hayne Shumate, Mouser’s Senior Vice President of Internet Business. “Engineers and buyers can now group and fluidly browse images using the search and filter methods that they already know.”

     

    Customers can easily switch from a product list to an image list, filtering by specific product groups and browsing the relevant images by product category. For example, Mouser’s website has many thousands of images of connectors. With this new feature, a customer can filter to something as specific as “4-pin Circular Metric Connectors” and then click on the Images tab to see the 98 images of only these products. By clicking an image, customers can see availability, price, configuration options and more details that can greatly help when searching for an appropriate part without having a part number at the start.

     

    With this new expanded functionality, customers can browse products and narrow product information on their own terms in ways they’ve never been able to before. Whether searching products, product categories or product types, customers can take advantage of Mouser’s new options to easily review additional information to discover and make their selections with flexibility and speed.

    Melexis Announces Chipset and Evaluation Kit for ToF 3D Vision in Challenging Environments

    TOF sensor solution with leading sunlight robustness, extended temperature range, enabling fast design of compact and robust 3D ToF cameras.

    Tessenderlo, Belgium, 18 January 2017 – Melexis, the global microelectronics company enabling future innovation through a philosophy of inspired engineering, has announced a chipset and its evaluation kit that simplify and speed the implementation of robust, time‐of‐flight (ToF) 3D vision solutions for the most challenging environments. With this newest addition Melexis continues to strengthen its expertise and know-how in the area of ToF solutions for automotive and beyond.

    Melexis-TOF-sensor-solutionRepresenting a complete ToF sensor and control solution, the chipset supports QVGA resolution and offers unsurpassed sunlight robustness and up to -40°C to +105°C temperature range operation. Using the evaluation kit, designers can test this automotive-qualified chipset and start developing their own custom hardware and application software.

    The Melexis chipset brings together the company’s MLX75023 1/3-inch optical format ToF sensor and the MLX75123, a companion IC that controls the sensor and illumination unit and delivers data to a host processor. Together the devices can minimize the component count and reduce the size of 3D ToF cameras. Designed for maximum flexibility, the modular EVK75123 QVGA evaluation kit combines a sensor board featuring the chipset, an illumination module, an interface board and a processor module.

    The MLX75023 sensor has QVGA (320 x 240 pixel) resolution and industry-leading background light rejection capabilities of up to 120klux. This IC can provide raw data output in less than 1.5 ms, giving it unsurpassed capacity to track rapid movement. The MLX75123 control chip has 12‐bit parallel camera interface and I2C connectivity and 4 integrated high-speed analog-to-digital converters (ADC). Integrated functions include powerful diagnostics and support for region‐of‐interest, configurable timing, image flipping, statistics and switching modulation frequencies.

    As the MLX75023 and MLX75123 have respective footprints of just 7mm x 7mm and 6.6mm x 5.5mm, they require minimal board real estate. The operational robustness of this chipset makes it highly suited to designs for automotive, surveillance and smart buildings, as well as industrial applications including machine vision, robotics and factory automation. Operating temperature range is ‐20°C to +85°C as standard, with an elevated -40°C to +105°C option also available. High-temperature capabilities mean that, unlike alternative solutions, the need for active cooling can be minimized. This leads to a reduction in noise, as well as enabling further cost and space savings in relation to thermal management.

    Consisting of four vertically stacked PCBs - sensor board, illumination board, interface board and processor board - the EVK75123 evaluation kit has an 80mm x 50mm x 35mm form factor and features an NXP i.MX6 multi-core processor. Its illumination unit has 4 VCSELs, with a choice of either 60° field-of-view (FoV) or a wider 110° option for acquiring imaging data from a broader area. Thanks to a modular construction, engineers can choose which elements are needed. For example, they can combine the sensor board (containing the ToF chipset) with the other hardware elements, or simply use it as a standalone module. The processing board can be located away from the sensor and illumination boards as necessary.

    “Through our long-term expertise in both sensor and sensor interface technologies, we are able to provide the advanced silicon needed to implement a 3D imaging system that exhibits superior sunlight robustness and that can deal with elevated temperatures,” states Gualtiero Bagnuoli, Marketing Manager for Optical Sensors at Melexis. “The new chipset, and accompanying evaluation kit provide a comprehensive, fully-integrated, off-the-shelf solution for rapidly developing next-generation ToF 3D camera designs.”
