Planar transformers for switch-mode power conversion

Articles | January 20, 2016 |

Source: Electronic Products

Planar transformers for switch-mode power conversion have been around for many years, and I have often wondered why they are not used more frequently. These usually SMT devices have a distinct density advantage and a high-frequency loss advantage…more

Standex-Meder Electronics reed relays, switches, and sensors play a vital role in the switching of on and off smart home system applications. The reed switch itself provides a base of energy conservation stemming from custom design and solutions.  Partnering with Digi-Key, we provide our reed series product lines via a global distribution platform…more

It’s a small world – and getting smaller

Articles | September 11, 2014 |

Source: ECN Magazine

Doing more with less is the mantra of our era. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the drive towards miniaturization in the next generation of electronic components and systems. The push for smaller parts is coming both from the need for smaller assemblies that can be used in specific applications as well as the need to reduce material costs by making smaller parts that can work as well as larger parts. One key area where this trend is playing out is with reed sensors and planar transformers, where new manufacturing techniques are pushing the limits of smaller, faster, and cheaper…more

Manufacturer of sensors and magnetic components Standex-Meder Electronics is now providing an in-depth training module for engineers looking to explore what magnets are, what they do, and how they are used in electronics design.

Magnet usage is increasing in electronic applications as a result of magnets can being utilized to switch reed sensors using no power, a significant asset in today’s energy-constrained world…more

Hall and Reed Sensors Enable Sensing with an Invisible Touch

Articles | July 10, 2013 |

Hall and reed sensors meet the no-touch sensor design requirements of medical devices.

As more applications call for no-touch sensor designs, demand for magnetically actuated sensors is on the rise. The see-through effect of magnetic fields, whereby switching can take place in nonferromagnetic metals and plastics without the magnetic source ever coming into contact with the sensor, is a desirable attribute, and a key design-in requirement for many new sensing applications…more
