  • New Workshop – Mouser Empowers Innovators with Practical Guidance For Accelerated IoT Application Development

Mouser will be organising a free workshop to help engineers developing IoT applications to accelerate their projects with secure IoT cloud deployment. Mouser has partnered with Würth Elektronik to hold a limited space “Build A Secure Rapid IoT Application Connected To Microsoft Azure Cloud” workshop, which will take place in Munich on 8 November. Participants attending the workshop will gain the skills to create a rapid end-to-end IoT solution with secure cloud connectivity to Microsoft Azure to empower IoT data utilisation. Attendees will receive practical advice from three experts in IoT hardware development, wireless connectivity, and secure IoT cloud deployment. Guest speakers include Rafik Mitry, Technical Marketing Engineer at Mouser Electronics, Adithya Madanahalli, IoT Engineer at Würth Elektronik eiSos and Chris Jones, Director of Applications at Crypto Quantique. The speakers will demonstrate how IoT project development can be accelerated using the Calypso IoT design kit from Würth Elektronik. Participants will be provided with one of these IoT design kits to use during the workshop and will be able to keep it as their own resource, giving them all the necessary tools and components for secure IoT development in the future. As the workshop is a live event, attendance is limited to 50 participants.

  • New Product – Mouser Now Offering Raspberry Pi 5 Single Board Computer, Delivering Significant Speed Improvements Over Previous Generations

Mouser is now offering the Raspberry Pi 5 single board computer from Raspberry Pi. Building on the success of the Raspberry Pi 4, the Pi 5 single board computer (SBC) delivers a 2x – 3x increase in CPU performance, a significant uplift in GPU performance, and noticeable improvements to display, camera, and USB interfacing. The Raspberry Pi 5 Single Board Computer, now available for order at Mouser, is the first full-size Raspberry Pi computer to be built with silicon developed in-house. The RP1 I/O controller chip supports improved interfacing, as well as faster transfer speeds to external USB-attached SCSI (UAS) drives and other high-speed peripherals. The Pi 5 SBC includes a MicroSD card slot with support for high-speed SDR104 mode, as well as a high-speed single-lane PCI Express 2.0 interface, offering support for high-bandwidth peripherals. The Pi 5 is offered in 4 GB and 8 GB variants and features Bluetooth® 5.0 with Bluetooth Low Energy, dual-band Wi-Fi®, and Gigabit Ethernet. The Pi 5 also extends support for Power over Ethernet (PoE). The Pi 5 SBC offers an affordable, easy-to-use solution for applications including home automation, industrial automation, edge computing, robotics, and surveillance.

  • New Product – Mouser Now Shipping TDK InvenSense ICU-20201 Time-of-Flight Range Sensor

Mouser is now shipping the ICU-20201 Time-of-Flight (ToF) range sensor from TDK InvenSense. The ICU-20201 is a miniature, ultra-low power (1.8 V), long-range ultrasonic sensor based on patented compressed high-intensity radar pulse MEMS technology, ideal for smart door lock wake-on-approach, wall following, obstacle avoidance, parking lot sensors for vehicle counting, and ground-level measurement in drones. This ToF range sensor offers multi-object detection and accurate range measurements to targets up to 5 metres and can operate in any lighting condition, including full sunlight to complete darkness. Featuring an integrated 85 kHz piezoelectric, micromachined ultrasonic transducer (PMUT) with a 2nd generation ultra-low power System on Chip (SoC), this reflowable package also offers a customisable field-of-view (FOV) up to 180° and a single sound port for receiving and transmitting. The ICU-20201 sensor is supported by the EV ICU-20201-00 evaluation board. Additionally, Mouser stocks the DK-x0201 development kit for the ICU-2021 Ultrasonic Time-of-Flight (ToF) sensor. This kit includes a development host board featuring the Microchip Technology SAMG55 microcontroller, a daughter evaluation board, and a target board with a pre-mounted ICU-20201 sensor.

  • New Product – Toshiba’s Thermoflagger Over-Temperature ICs, Now Available at Mouser, Detect Temperature Increases in Electrical Equipment

Mouser is now stocking the Thermoflagger TM Over-Temperature ICs from Toshiba. Designed to detect and protect against abnormal heat generation, the Thermoflagger ICs allow engineers to configure over-temperature detection for an entire electronic product easily. These ICs are designed to be connected in series with positive temperature coefficient (PTC) thermistors placed near heat sources. These products monitor resistance over the thermistors, which increases exponentially in the event of over-temperature. Connecting PTC thermistors in series enables over-temperature detection for multiple locations. The compact, highly efficient Thermoflagger ICs offer low power consumption of 11.3 μA. These ICs feature an operating supply voltage range of 1.7 V to 5.5 V, a detect voltage range of 0.36 V to 0.64 V, and an operating temperature range of -40°C to +125°C. The over-temperature ICs offer a high PTCO output current accuracy of ±8%, as well as a selectable PTCO output current. These products help reduce size and power consumption for various applications, including mobile devices, home appliances, and industrial equipment.
