Sensata Technologies,headquartered in the United States, with 95 years of history ,is a global leader in the design sensors, electrical protectors and controllers. Sensata, formerly Texas Instruments' sensor and controller business, was acquired by Bain Capital in 2006.The company successfully listed on the New York Stock Exchange on March 11, 2010.After that Sensata subsequently acquired First Technology, Airpax and four of its subsidiaries, Honeywell's Global Automotive-on-Board, Sensor-NITE) high temperature sensor.
Linear Technology Corporation, a subsidiary of Analog Devices, Inc. (ADI), introduced the LT8609S, a 2A (3A peak), 42V input synchronous step-down switching regulator. Its unique Silent Switcher® 2 architecture utilizes two internal input capacitors and internal BST and INTVCC capacitors to minimize thermal loop area. The LT8609S is designed to significantly reduce EMI/EMC emissions due to the extremely well-controlled switching edges, with an internal ground plane and copper posts instead of bond wires.
Recently, Vishay Intertechnology, Inc. announced the launch of a new high sensitivity proximity and ambient light sensor - VCNL4200. The sensor uses FiltronTM technology with a detection range of up to 1.5 meters and is available in a small 8mm x 3mm x 1.8mm surface mount package. The Vishay Semiconductors VCNL4200 3-in-1 sensor features a high-power infrared emitter, proximity and ambient light photodetectors, a signal processing IC, and a 12-bit/16-bit ADC. It also provides an interrupt function and supports an I2C bus communication interface for smart homes. Industrial and office products.
