Arm has partnered with Docker to create a frictionless cloud-native unified software development and delivery model for cloud, edge and IoT devices, allowing organizations to build applications faster and more securely.

The data generated by the proliferation of the IoT and intelligent connected devices are causing networks to be weighed down, thus making centralized processing inefficient and expensive. Using Arm’s Neoverse platform, the companies are addressing this challenge by offering a common software pipeline for cloud, edge and IoT, letting developers remove the dependencies of applications from infrastructure.

Littelfuse has introduced its PxxxxS4xLRP Series SIDACtor Protection Thyristor, designed for protecting Composite Video Blanking Sync (CVBS) signal lines and ports from damaging overvoltage transients.

The combination of 6V operating voltage, 100A 5/310µs surge peak current capability and a low junction capacitance rating make the P0080S4BLRP suited for protecting a range of equipment needs. The PxxxxS4xLRP Series also provides a compact, surface-mount package which makes it easier to design it into a PCB layout.

Pasternack has launched a line of coaxial packaged tunnel diode detectors that are available with no MOQ required. These detectors are suited for prototype and proof-of-concept applications used in aerospace and defense, military, test and measurement.

The line consists of 26 models that feature Germanium planar construction and operate over octave and broadband frequencies that range from 100 MHz to 26 GHz. These zero biased designs are available in both positive and negative video output polarities and offer improved dynamic range with efficient low-level signal detection.
