  • New eBook – New eBook from Samtec and Mouser Explores New Breakthroughs in High-Speed Electronic Designs

Mouser announces a new eBook in collaboration with Samtec, exploring the challenges of high-speed designs and the new cable technologies emerging to address them. In Samtec Flyover Solutions Break Next-Gen System Architecture Constraints, a range of Samtec thought leaders offer rich insights into how recent technology breakthroughs have enabled significant advancements in electronics designs. The eBook’s five chapters cover themes including routing high-speed signals, high-speed signal integrity, twinax cable technology, and fibre optic cable systems. When engineers develop new applications using high-speed signals, they must contend with a range of challenges, including skew, signal integrity, differential signals, and electromagnetic interference. This eBook offers actionable insights for engineers to overcome these challenges using Samtec cable assemblies and connectors. The eBook includes product information for 10 Samtec solutions, including the High-Speed Cable Assemblies, the AcceleRate Slim Body Direct Attach Cable Assemblies, the ExaMAX High-Speed Backplane System and the Flyover QSFP Cable Systems.

  • Continued Co-sponsorship – Mouser Empowers Next Generation of Engineers as Co-Sponsor of FIRST Robotics Championship

Mouser is excited to continue its co-sponsorship of the FIRST Robotics Competition, which inspires innovation and fosters well-rounded life capabilities in tens of thousands of young people every year. Mouser was the exclusive sponsor of the Hall of Fame at the 2023 FIRST® Championship, April 19-21 in Houston. The Hall of Fame honoured the winning FIRST Robotics Competition teams of the esteemed Impact Award, which rewards the teams who best exemplify the goals and values of FIRST. Since 2014, Mouser has been a major supporter of FIRST (For Inspiration and Recognition of Science and Technology), a leading youth-serving non-profit advancing science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) education through hands-on robotics programs. Mouser sponsors FIRST virtual and live competitions at the local, regional, state, and international levels. Joining Mouser in the sponsorship is valued manufacturer partner Analog Devices, Inc. Recently, Mouser was a major presenting co-sponsor of the FIRST® in Texas/UIL State Robotics Championships, in Houston, Texas. Mouser also supports FIRST teams in its community, providing grants for local high school teams.

  • New Product – Mouser Now Shipping ams OSRAM Metal Can TO56 PLT5 522FA_P Green Laser Diode for Industrial and Medical Applications

Mouser is now stocking the Metal Can® TO56 PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode from ams OSRAM. This green laser diode produces a 514 nm (±1 nm) typical emission wavelength with 50 mW optical output power. Featuring thermally stabilised optics in a hermetically sealed 5.6 mm diameter TO56 Metal Can package, the PLT5 522FA_P green laser diode offers high-modulation bandwidth in a single-mode semiconductor laser for reliable and maintenance-free operation. The excellent beam pointing accuracy and compact size of the diode improves high-density designs with better signal-to-noise ratio and optimised wavelengths. A 6 V typical operating voltage and -20°C to +60°C operating temperature range offer high performance in a low power package, providing an ideal alternative to expensive argon-ion laser devices. Depending on the mode of operation, the PLT5 522FA_P emits highly concentrated visible and non-visible light, which can be hazardous to the human eye. Products that incorporate this device must follow the safety precautions given in IEC 60825-1. This device provides a highly efficient radiation source for continuous wave and pulsed operation for industrial automation, 3D sensing, and gesture recognition and is optimised for life-science applications, such as digital diagnostic devices.

  • New Sponsorship – Mouser Sponsors Nordic Semiconductor Connect for Good Challenge on Building a Smarter, More Sustainable Future

Mouser is pleased to sponsor the Connect for Good: Low Power Wireless Sustainability Challenge, presented by Nordic Semiconductor and Wevolver, going on now through 12 October. Entrants are encouraged to submit a project that utilises low-power wireless technology to solve various issues related to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, including clean energy and sustainable cities among others. The grand prize winner will receive up to $20,000, one year subscription to nRF Cloud Services for up to 500 devices, Soracom connectivity for each device and support from Crowd Supply to get the winning design to market. The first 100 entries will receive a free Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160 Development Kit for low-power cellular loT. Each project should incorporate the Nordic Semiconductor nRF9160 DK low-power hardware platform as part of the design. The challenge is open to all engineers and students, ages 18 and up, with sufficient engineering capability to develop a working prototype. Entries will be judged based on the technical and commercial feasibility of the solution, the level of innovation shown and the potential impact on the selected UN Sustainable Development Goals (Goals 7, 11, 13 and 15). Nordic Semiconductor is also offering technical support and education for entrants, including Nordic Developer Academy, an online learning platform, and one-on-one technical support through Nordic DevZone.
