InvenSense Application Note: Reflow Soldering of MEMS Microphones

InvenSense Application Note Reflow Soldering of MEMS Microphones   Many users are under the false pretense that bottom-ported, MEMS Microphones cannot be solder reflowed, but the soldering process needs to be a manual process, after the standard solder reflow process. Application note 1068 provides guidance and suggestions for assembling boards with MEMS microphones. Parameter and profile details are presented, followed by device footprints, suggested solder paste masks, and PCB land patterns for all InvenSense MEMS microphones.   This application note will include: • PRINTING PARAMETERS • SOLDER PASTE STENCIL PARAMETERSRead More
NK Technologies Installation Without Interruption for Critical Current Monitoring!   Click here to submit a technical inquiry or quote request for the AT/ATR-LS Current Transducer The need to measure electricity usage has become very important to factories. The proposed EPA regulations will soon become law and make power much more expensive, every year for the foreseeable future. Likewise, the efficient operation of electrical machinery becomes more important since poor efficiency equals more electricity. A major problem for existing installations, especially large units, which currently do not have current measurement realRead More

Accelerate Testing Time with Embedded Masters Breakout Boards

Accelerate Testing Time with Embedded Masters Breakout Boards   Embedded Masters introduces two new Breakout Boards which allow a quicker time to market by accelerating testing time on these often hard to handle SMD devices.         The first device is the Breakout Board for the InvenSense ITG-3400 motion sensor. The ITG-3400 is a 3-axis motion sensor in a tiny 3x3x0.9mm (24pin QFN) package. The EMSENSR-ITG3400 provides an easy way to incorporate the ITG-3400 in an prototype either via a breadboard with standard 2.54mm/.1” headers or can simplyRead More
NK Technologies Guaranteed Jam Protection For Conveyor Systems   Click here to submit a quote or technical inquiry for the ATS Series For a long time electromechanical relays have been used for jam protection to prevent drive motors from continuing to run during a conveyor jam. Unfortunately, these relays have questionable reliability. If the drive motors continue to run during jams, system elements including the motors may be damaged. That means expensive and time consuming repair and/or replacement, but even worse, down time for the entire conveyor system. Now aRead More
