Next-Generation Silicon Labs Optical Sensors Enhance UV Protection and Gesture Recognition

Si1133/53 Sensors Provide Accurate Measurement of Ultraviolet Radiation and Improved Daylight Performance and Range for Proximity Sensing

Silicon Labs has introduced next-generation optical sensors that can be used to protect consumers from the harmful effects of ultraviolet (UV) radiation and to develop innovative touchless user interfaces leveraging high-performance proximity sensing and gesture recognition. Silicon Labs’ new Si1133 optical sensor provides a cost-effective solution for adding highly accurate UV index measurement capabilities to a wide range of sports equipment and outdoor lifestyle products. The Si1153 ambient light sensor is optimized for operation in bright daylight conditions and extended range, allowing it to be used for gesture control and proximity detection applications in outdoor environments.



u-blox brings centimeter-level precision GNSS technology to the mass market

The NEO-M8P offers high precision technology in small design for applications such as unmanned vehicles and robotic guidance systems

    "NEO-M8P lowers the barriers for innovative companies looking to develop equipment that needs centimeter-level accuracy in many markets and applications, such as UAVs," said Daniel Ammann, Executive Director Positioning and Co-Founder of u-blox. "Today, most solutions are based on board-level receiver products. NEO-M8P delivers performance that is simply a level above competitive offerings in terms of size and low-power consumption, thereby providing easy integration into customers' existing product platforms, as well as a significant saving in their cost of goods."

u-blox NEO-M8P is available for sampling now and will be shipping in volumes in Q3' 2016.



250W High performance 2-Way Power Divider Model 2382-2 , 500Mhz~6Ghz

   The Model 2382-2, a two-way power divider, operates from 500 MHz to 6.0 GHz, handles up to 250 watts CW power, maintains exceptional amplitude and phase balance, low insertion loss, and high isolation. It is ideal for use in commercial and military applications. The power divider has insertion loss no greater than 1.5 dB at any frequency in its range, phase balance of +/-7 deg., amplitude balance of 0.4 dB, isolation of at least 9 dB from 500 to 1.0 GHz, and 17 dB from 1.0 GHz to 6.0 GHz. Maximum VSWR is typically 1.5:1 at all ports. Model 2382-2 will handle 100 W CW under any load condition, 220 W CW into a 2:1 VSWR, and 250 W CW into a 1.2:1 VSWR. It has Type-N female connectors, and measures 3.5 x 2.5 x 1 in.
