the aluminum housing and overall design enable long service
life even under unfavorable conditions such as vibration and
shock loads. The non-contact, wear-free measuring principle
makes a significant contribution to this.
Based on a comprehensive sensor program for demanding
applications, the developers adapt the respective basic model
to the individual wishes of the customer - for example with
regard to the size, the housing design, the electrical properties,
the interface and quite generally for the mechanical and
electrical integration into the surrounding construction. This
applies not only to conventional sensors, but also to those that
take on functional safety tasks.

Safety Relay Module Includes Built-In
IoT Connectivity and Diagnostics
IDEC Corporation has
announced the release
of its new HR6S safety
relay module. This microcomputer-based
device
supports a wide variety of
connections, input devices,
and operating modes-and
adds convenient diagnostic
and status monitoring
important for the growing
number of manufacturing
sites relying on important internet of things (IoT) data.
Safety relays are crucial for monitoring safety-related inputs,
and for protecting both machines and operators by
enabling equipment via outputs only when normal and safe
conditions are confirmed. But traditional hardwired safety
relays have limited functionality, leading many to search for
upgraded solutions.
The adaptable HR6S safety relay module is designed to
meet ISO 13849 requirements, with one model for low-risk
Safety Category 1 applications, and six models suitable highrisk
Safety Category 3 and 4 processes requiring redundancy.
Up to eight different start modes are dial-selectable, including
options for manual and automatic start, providing extensive
flexibility.
Depending on the model, up to seven types of input devices
are dial-selectable, including emergency stop switches,
two-handed switches, pressure-sensitive devices, and other
types of interlock switches. Terminations are arranged intuitively,
with terminal blocks available as push-in or screw type
to meet any user need, and both styles are removeable for easy
serviceability.
Maintainability and convenience are aided by multiple
LEDs with steady and/or flashing colored lights indicating
116
various conditions such as power, error, operating state, and
more.
While most relay modules on the market have no remote
connectivity options, the new HR6S safety relay modules
incorporate a microcomputer so they can output 20 different
indications of operational status, errors, and alerts. This
unique capability enables supervisory control systems and IoT
platforms to perform visualization, diagnostics, preventative
maintenance, and other analytics.

Foundry Now Supports 5nm Designs
As more and more foundries
are offering 5 nm,
Sondrel has announced
that it is supporting them
with 5 nm design work.
This builds on it being one
of the few design houses to
have taped out a number of
7 nm designs.
The key driving force to move to the 5 nm node is the increase
in performance due to the smaller distances increasing
the operational speeds. For these leading-edge chips, this increase
in performance can justify moving to a smaller node,
especially alongside the decreased unit cost associated with reduction
in the silicon real estate and the power demand being
less for the same functionality.
An example of the design intricacies of these ultra-small
nodes that needs to be understood and allowed for is that
the resistance of the metal layers varies from the lower to the
upper. In an ideal design, the lower, thinner layers with the
higher resistance are used for local/short connections and the
mid and high levels for longer distances. However, in the real
world, there can be areas of congestion where all the high, fast
levels are already fully utilized forcing the tool to use the lower
slower layers, causing timing closure issues that must be addressed
in the design.

Generator & Digitizer in One Box
Spectrum Instrumentation extends its range of hybridNETBOX
products with the addition of eight high-performance
models. The hybridNETBOX is an innovative instrumentation
platform that combines a multi-channel arbitrary waveform
generator (AWG) and a
digitizer in a single portable
unit. With their unique
capability for simultaneous
signal generation and
acquisition, these powerful
