■ MPUs
Renesas, Tokyo, Japan, has expanded its general-purpose 64-bit
microprocessors (MPUs) to deliver improved AI processing for a
wide range of applications. The expanded product lineup
includes three new entry-level MPU models built around the latest
Arm® Cortex®-A55 core: The RZ/G2L, RZ/G2LC, and RZ/G2UL. Together with the existing midto high-end RZ/G2E, RZ/G2N, RZ/G2M, and RZ/G2H MPUs, the total of seven RZ/G2 MPUs
provide scalability. The MPUs are built around the Cortex-A55 CPU core, which delivers approximately 20 percent improved processing performance compared with the previous Cortex-A53
core and provides approximately six times faster in essential processing for AI applications. In
addition, the MPUs integrate camera input interfaces, a 3D graphics engine, and a video codec.

EPOXY FOR
MEDICAL DEVICE
ASSEMBLY

■ LED Driver-Controller
Innovations in Optics, Woburn, MA, has introduced a switchedmode LED driver/controller for powering its high-power LED light
engines. The Model 5000H can also be used with third-party LED illuminators as a constant current, DC to DC driver/controller. The driver provides constant current in continuous or pulsed mode for LED arrays connected in parallel,
single, large format LED chips and laser diodes with a compliance voltage up to 7.0 VDC. The
series is a digital LED driver/controller that provides high DC current up to 40A continuous and
50A pulsed. It uses Modbus RS-485 serial protocol to support remote or automated operation.
Additional I/O includes analog intensity control and PWM 24 VDC output for cooling fans
mounted to an LED illuminator with thermistor-controlled closed-loop temperature regulation.

Master Bond EP42HT4AOMed Black is a twopart epoxy developed for medical device manufacturing. It is biocompatible and non-cytotoxic, passing
both USP Class VI and ISO 10993-5 certifications.
This epoxy withstands aggressive chemical sterilants,
radiation and repeated cycles of autoclaving. https://

Fujitsu, Sunnyvale, CA, has released wireless radio modules compatible with both Bluetooth Low Energy and legacy Bluetooth Classic
BR/EDR. The fully integrated FWM7BTZ61 series is powered by
Cypress Semiconductor's CYW20819 SoC and features Bluetooth Low
Energy profile and Bluetooth Classic power class 2 capabilities in a
single module. It also supports Bluetooth Ver. 5.0's signature X2 communication. The symbol
rate and data rate accommodate both 1 Mbps and improved 2 Mbps to facilitate communication
speed with other BLE devices. Classic mode supports 1 Mbps (BR: basic rate) and 2 and 3 Mbps
(EDR) communication.

■ Brushless DC Motor
A mini brushless DC motor platform is available from Portescap, West
Chester, PA. The Ultra EC™ 16 ECP brushless motors with a new integrated driver are available in two lengths (36 and 52 mm). The integration
of the driver inside the motor reduces many of the complexities associated
with the operation of the motor, cuts down the installation time, lowers overall
application footprint, minimizes the clutter of wirings, and offers cost optimization
benefits. The motors are suitable for applications such as respiratory and ventilation devices,
miniature pumps, and medical hand tools.
