FOUR COLORS IN ONE
ENERGY EFFICIENT PACK
Super Bright LEDs now offers two surface-mount LED components that have the traditional RGB LEDs with
an additional cool or warm white chip for superior color
blending. These four-chip Epistar 5050 SMD LEDs are able
to produce true white illumination without RGB color
bleeding or the need for an additional LED component.
Applications include computer case lighting, case
modding, circuit board lights, indicator lights, custom light
strip building, light panels, art projects, and monitor or TV
Using only 0.2 watts of power, both energy-efficient
LED components produce 2,400 millicandelas (seven
lumens). The LED components emit a wide 120 degree
beam of red, green, blue, and cool white ( 6,500K) or
warm white ( 3,100K) illumination. Each LED chip color has
an individual voltage: Red has a forward voltage of 2.2V,
and green, blue, and white have forward voltages of 3.2V.
NEW VERSION OF WIRELESS
Anaren, Inc.’s Wireless Group announced the upcoming release of version 1.5 of its Atmosphere
development platform and is already working to develop
the features of what will be version 2.0, including
expanded project platform selection and new elements for
Wi-Fi. Version 2.0 — a major release — is expected to
launch this spring.
The combined local and online software tool set helps
manufacturers at every RF design skill level build
applications for mobile devices and programs for
embedded devices simultaneously. This capability allows
developers to quickly design an embedded system and
turn a mobile Bluetooth® Smart device (such as an iPad,
iPhone, or Android-based device) into a mobile control
panel to interact with the embedded system. The software
platform works with the AIR for WICED™Smart Bluetooth
modules, developer board, and Anaren’s AIR modules.
The modules are low cost, surface-mount radio modules
that feature Bluetooth Smart and Wi-Fi technology.
The version 1.5 release features better connector
highlighting for workflow, the availability of new elements
for mobile apps, and Phone gap plug-in support for these
new elements, such as Vibrate, Beep, Device Info,
Network Info, Alert, Confirm, and Prompt. The upgrade
features a substantial Android BLE improvement and other
performance enhancements, along with several bug fixes.
In addition, a Geolocation element is slated to be
