SEGGER to Support the emWin Embedded GUI Tool Library for Epson’s Simple LCD Controllers
Seiko Epson Corporation and SEGGER Microcontroller have announced that SEGGER will add support to emWin embedded GUI tool library for Epson’s simple LCD controller series including the S1D13L01, S1D13L02, and S1D13L04. emWin has been designed to offer an efficient, processor- and display a controller-independent graphical user interface (GUI) for any application with a graphical display. As users demand high-quality interfaces, emWin allows development teams to generate clean graphics for user interfaces. The interface is compatible with both single-task as well as multitask environments with a proprietary operating system or any commercial RTOS and is shipped as “C” source code.
Microsemi Updates its TimeProvider 5000 PTP Grandmaster Clock to Support IPv6 Protocol and Multi-GNSS Constellation
Microsemi Corporation, a leading provider of semiconductor solutions, has recently updated the TimeProvider 5000 IEEE 1588 Precision Time Protocol (PTP) grandmaster clock. This is to support Internet Protocol version 6 (IPv6) and multi-Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) constellation to ensure better reception and higher security in a wide variety of telecommunications network applications. More and more global operators are now looking at solutions like Micrsoemi’s enhanced TimeProvider 5000. This is because the device features multiple constellations in accordance with the directives in certain countries to remove their sole dependency on GPS. Moreover, the GLONASS and Galileo constellations make the system more robust and secure to certain GNSS vulnerabilities.
CUI Introduces new Heat Sink Product Line to Further Expand Thermal Management Portfolio
CUI’s Thermal Management Group has announced to expand its existing portfolio of Peltier devices and dc fans by adding a heat sink product line. The new line of aluminum heat sinks is available in both extruded and stamped versions. The range is compatible with TO-218, TO-220, TO-252, and TO-263 transistor packages. These have been designed to improve the heat dissipation of low and high power board level applications. These stampings and extrusions are conveniently measured under 4 conditions for thermal resistance. This facilitates an easy selection of the optimal heat sink for natural convection or forced air cooling systems.

These integrate the vibrant SPARC technology ecosystem with Oracle’s SPARC systems thus leverage the unique security and scalability features of the Oracle Solaris operating system along with the versatility of Oracle VM Server for SPARC virtualization software.
Intersil Announces 5 new 12V Synchronous Buck Regulators
Intersil has filled out its 12V synchronous buck regulator portfolio with the announcement of 5 new members of the ISL850xx family. The new buck regulators step down 12V rails to point-of-load inputs (as low as 0.6V) for MCUs, FPGAs, memory, and peripheral I/Os. The new additions to the range include ISL85014, ISL85012, ISL85009, ISL85005A, and ISL85005. These deliver a continuous output current of 14A, 12A, 9A, and 5A, respectively, to telecom, test and measurement, server and storage networking equipment, as well as, industrial computers and programmable logic controllers. The ISL850xx regulators support input voltage of 3.8V to 18V and wide output current range.
