32.768 KHZ MEMS RESONATOR IS ONLY 0.9×0.6×0.3MM

Measuring just 0.9×0.6×0.3mm (50 % smaller than a conventional 32.768 kHz crystal resonator), the WMRAG series 32.768 kHz MEMS resonator is the world’s smallest, claims manufacturer Murata. Murata Manufacturing Co., Ltd. (Head Office: Nagaokakyo-shi, Kyoto; Chairman of the Board and President: Tsuneo Murata) has developed the world’s smallest 32.768kHz MEMS resonator, which is expected to make a significant ...

CH3330N – SMALL AND CHEAP USB-SERIAL CONVERTER IC NEEDS NO CRYSTAL

Recently the hobbyist market has seen the appearance of the Air602 low-cost ARM WiFi module. This module might be a potential competitor of ESP8266, another low-cost powerful WiFi module, that took the electronics hobbyists by storm long ago and is still extremely popular. But what’s more interesting about the Air602 module is the usage of a completely new USB to Serial Chip – WCH CH330N. This chip has feat ...

LIBRE COMPUTER PROJECT LAUNCHES OPEN SOURCE LA FRITE SC

Libre Computer has successfully launched a smaller, less powerful follow-up to its Le Potato SBC, the “La Frite SBC. The La Frite SBC is a small version of the Le Potato SBC, that has a quad -A53, HD-only Amlogic S805X, a Raspberry Pi A+ footprint and GPIO connector, and mainline Linux support. The 64 x 55mm La Frite is roughly modeled on the 65 x 56mm Raspberry Pi Model A+. The new board has a different la ...

ULTRA SMALL DC-DC CONVERTER WITH INTEGRATED INDUCTOR

The XCL206 series is a synchronous step-down micro DC/DC converter which integrates an inductor and a control IC in one tiny package (2.5mm×2.0mm, H=1.0mm). A stable power supply with an output current of 600mA is configured using only two capacitors connected externally. Operating voltage range is from 2.0V to 6.0V(XCL20xG:1.8V-6.0V). Output voltage is internally set in a range from 0.8V to 4.0V in increme ...

THE NEW AIR602 WIFI MODULE, A CHEAP MODULE DESIGNED FOR IOT APPLICATIONS

The ESP8266 had been in the tech scene for over four years now and has seen various competitors like the RTL8710 or, more recently, the RDA5981. But none of them has really been able to knock off the ESP8266 from its throne. The ESP8266 is seen by most as being “good enough.” So the need to switch to a new chip is not necessary. Regardless this, SeeedStudio has developed a new chip, the Air602 module. ...
