PCB design libraries for Linear Technology
feature Altium 3D CAD data
released a new
range of component libraries for
management devices. The release
delivers more than
13,000 new board-level component models and corresponding
supply chain information, such as real-time price and availability
data from distributors and vendors directly to designers using
the company’s electronics design. A component model hosted in
AltiumLive includes the schematic symbol, PCB footprint and a
detailed 3D model for 3D mechanical integration during the PCB
design process. Corresponding component price and availability
data is drawn directly from vendor and supplier web services.
The complete Linear Technology power management catalog has
been covered in this release, bringing Altium’s overall coverage of
Linear’s catalog to more than 18,000 devices. The power management families include battery management, current sources, energy harvesting, hot swap controllers, inductorless (charge pump)
DC/DC converters, and LDO linear regulators.

Kits help users set up
Farsens has developed wireless
sensor devices that can be used
without the need of batteries on
the sensors. The battery free
sensor tags are based on UHF
RFID technology and are able
to continuously monitor and transmit data, together with the 96-bit EPC
unique tag identifier, to any EPC Gen 2 standard compliant reader.
The company’s Full Battery Free Sensor kits come with their wireless
battery free sensor tags of choice plus a commercial UHF RFID reader,
a reader antenna, reader power supply and Ethernet cable to connect
to a PC or laptop. The kit also comes with a software program that
displays the sensor tag data on a computer. Tags in these kits come
in non-protected PCB formats for custom encapsulation or embedding in non-metallic assets/materials. Sensor options include Battery
Free Temperature Sensor (BFTS) – any kit focused on temperature
monitoring includes FENIX wireless battery-less temperature sensor
tags; Battery Free Pressure Sensor (BFPS) – pressure monitoring kits
include VORTEX wireless battery-less pressure sensor tags; Battery
Free Orientation Sensor (BFOS) – when the users need a kit to monitor
spatial orientation of assets, KINEO wireless battery free sensor tags
are shipped; and Battery Free Switch Sensor (BFSS).
