  • New Product – Mouser Shipping STMicroelectronics VL53L4ED Time-of-Flight Proximity Sensor for Presence and System Activation Applications

Mouser is now stocking the VL53L4ED time-of-flight (ToF) high-accuracy proximity sensor from STMicroelectronics. The VL53L4ED is designed for high-accuracy, short-range measurements that require extended temperature performance for robotics, presence detection, industrial automation, and system activation applications. The VL53L4ED proximity sensor supports an effective temperature range of -40°C to +105°C, guaranteeing accurate measurements even under extreme temperatures. This high-performance sensor features a short distance linearity of 1mm and an autonomous low-power mode, with an interrupt programmable threshold to wake the host. This sensor offers an 18° field of view for measurements from 1mm up to 1300mm in standard conditions and up to 1150mm under extended temperature. The VL53L4ED features a fast-ranging frequency of up to 100Hz. Like all time-of-flight sensors based on STMicroelectronics’ FlightSense™ technology, the VL53L4ED records an absolute distance measurement regardless of the target colour and reflectance. STMicroelectronics X-NUCLEO-53L4A3 expansion board assists in learning, evaluating, and developing applications using the VL53L4ED ToF high-accuracy proximity sensor with extended temperature capability. The STMicroelectronics SATEL-VL53L4ED breakout board offers easy access to all of the VL53L4ED sensor’s signal pins for integration into prototypes.

  • New Fixture – Mouser Long-Term Partner DS PENSKE Formula E Team Racing Team Headed to Italy’s Adriatic Coast for Misano Doubleheader

Mouser cheered on the DS PENSKE Formula E racing team in Misano, Italy, for rounds 6 and 7 of Season 10 of the ABB FIA Formula E World Championship. The race weekend kicked off on 13th April for round 6 and continued on 14th April for round 7. The races took place at the iconic Misano World Circuit Marco Simoncelli circuit, which is located in the beautiful Emilia-Romagna region. Usually home to Grand Prix Motorcycle (MotoGP) and Superbike World (WorldSBK) racing, as well as endurance and sports car racing, the circuit was designed in 1969 before opening in 1972. For Formula E’s first visit, the circuit ran to 3.382 km with 14 turns. The DS PENSKE Racing team had two past Formula E Champions driving its cars, 2022 World Champion Stoffel Vandoorne and the unique two-time Formula E Champion, Jean-Éric Vergne. Mouser is supporting the DS PENSKE team for the globe-trekking 2024 season in collaboration with TTI, Inc. and valued manufacturers Molex and KYOCERA AVX. Mouser and Molex have been partnering to sponsor Formula E racing since 2015. The Formula E series features cars that are powered solely by electricity and represent a vision for the future of the motorsports industry, serving as a framework for research and development around zero-emission motoring.

  • New eBook – Mouser and Analog Devices Deliver Expert Perspectives on Flexible Manufacturing in New eBook

Mouser announces a new eBook in collaboration with Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI) focusing on how production facilities can achieve greater throughput, product quality, and cost-efficiency than ever before through a flexible manufacturing approach. In 10 Experts on Flexible Manufacturing, subject matter experts from ADI and other technology companies discuss how today’s sensors, robotic subsystems, and AI-enabled compute units allow factories to adapt fabrication and production with more flexibility. This enables production facilities to achieve greater throughput, product quality and cost-efficiency than ever before. At the same time, improved processes and control can help facilitate a more sustainable manufacturing process that wastes less energy and materials. The eBook also highlights many of the following ADI’s products that help bring flexible manufacturing to life. The EVAL-ADTF3175D-NXZ time of flight (ToF) evaluation kit showcases the ADTF3175 ToF module with ADI’s ADSD3500 image signal processor, all available to order from The ADTF3175 ToF module enables industrial applications from robot manipulation to machine vision, object avoidance and object measurement. The GMSL™ Serializer and Deserializer products, such as the MAX96717 and MAX96724, are robust and simple solutions that enable advanced sensing and perception for autonomous applications. The ADXL359 MEMS inertial measurement unit (IMU) is designed to integrate accurate, multi-axis inertial sensing into industrial systems. The MAXQ1065 and DS28S60 DeepCover® cryptographic controller and coprocessor can play a crucial role in ensuring that only authorised entities can access sensitive data on the factory floor.
