Würth: four booths full of innovations at electronica 2018
Würth Elektronik eiSos is represented at electronica 2018 with no fewer than four booths. Highlights include the launch of the new product groups - Resistors, Sensors as well as Quartz Crystals and Oscillators.
Würth Elektronik eiSos unveils its new Resistors product group for the first time at electronica 2018, namely: firstly resistors for current measurement applications. These include metal plate resistors, which, with their very low resistance values down to 10 mΩ, are used to measure currents up to 50 A. The second resistor group, the thick film resistors, are used to measure low currents in the hundredth-Ampere range. The resistance values in the low to medium range are from 100 mΩ to 270 Ω.
With electronica 2018, Würth raises the curtain on its new Sensor portfolio. The sensors are based, among other things, on microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). All sensors have an application-specific integrated circuit (ASIC) in common. This ensures that sensor signals are processed with temperature compensation and filter algorithms in the sensor itself. Another highlight on this booth: highly efficient, proprietary wireless solutions and new Bluetooth, Wireless-m-Bus and WiFi modules.
The Würth Elektronik eiSos subsidiary “IQD Frequency Products” showcases quartz crystals and oscillators. In the future, piezoelectric crystals and oscillators will be available in 24 different packages in the Würth Elektronik eiSos standard portfolio. The package sizes extend from 1.6 × 1.0 mm to 13.4 × 4.9 mm. The frequency range lies between 32.768 kHz and 125 MHz. These pulse generators are optimally dovetailed for use in quartz watches and many industrial applications.
The focal point of the Würth Elektronik eiSos trade show presence is the main booth with its twelve thematic areas. Here the group of companies demonstrates its innovative strength on the basis of typical examples. Horticulture LEDs are to be seen on the “Optoelectronic Solutions” thematic area, for instance, which can be matched to special plant breeding requirements in a greenhouse. The theme of “EMC Shielding and Cable Solutions” is promoted with interesting experimental setups on suppression and the filter effect of components. Other thematic areas are dedicated to “EMC Onboard Solutions”, “Connector Solutions”, “Electromechanical Solutions”, “RF & Frequency Solutions”, “Signal & Communications Solutions”, as well as two stations with Power Management Solutions. The presentation of reference designs with IC partners at the “Design & Support” thematic exemplifies the strong customer orientation of Würth Elektronik. The REDEXPERT online platform for easier component selection and simulation is also presented, as well as the SMART5 area.
