Product of the Week: SQ-SEN-200

The SQ-SEN-200 sensor acts like a normally closed switch which chatters open and closed as it is tilted or vibrated. Unlike other rolling-ball sensors, the 200 is truly an omnidirectional movement sensor. It will function regardless of how it is mounted or aligned. Functions • Omnidirectional movement sensing • Chatters open / closed when tilted or vibrated in any direction regardless of orientation • Normally closed at rest Features • Nano-power - As little as 50 nA • Industrial rated - 10 year life, -40 to 85 ºC • Miniature size - 3.3 mm x 6.9 mm • Simple interface - No signal conditioning required • Surface mount - RoHS & REACH complaint, lead free, Halogen free • Made in USA - fully automated production, 100% testing, worldwide quality and price leader Applications • Motion…

Theobroma - Next-Generation Modules: the RK3399-Q7 and RK3368-µQ7

New modules based on Rockchip's RK33-series processors redefine the Qseven and micro-Qseven performance envelope Theobroma have some big news in store for next year. While their entry-level A64-µQ7 (based on a SoC for Allwinner Technology) has already started sampling to lead customers, they have continued to work on completing the transition to 64bit-capable ARM processors for mid-range and demanding applications. Today Theobroma announced details on their next-generation modules are based on the RK33-series from Rockchip. With these new modules, Theobroma Systems again pushes the boundary of system-on-module products: • The RK3399-Q7 is the world's first Qseven module featuring the high-performance ARM Cortex-A72 cores. Combining the computational performance of the Cortex-A72/A53 clusters with PCI-Express and two independent MIPI-CSI interfaces unlocks varied…
