Toshiba Electronics Europe has announced the launch of a new photorelay in a small 2.54SOP4 package that is just 2.1mm high with a 2.54mm pitch. Implemented in the latest U-MOS VIII trench MOSFET process, the product delivers replacement for mechanical relays.
The Real-time Clock Module RV-3028-C7 from Micro Crystal AG sets the new benchmark for lowest power consumption: 40 nA at a supply 3 V. The high accuracy of ±1 ppm at room temperature eliminates any calibration during manufacturing.

Researchers from the University of Fribourg have developed a 3D bioprinted device that produces 110 volts from hydrogels filled with water and could be used as a soft power source in biological systems.
Schaffner announced its FN 9280 and FN 9290 families of high-end  IEC Power Entry Modules (PEM) have been approved to IEC62368-1.
TT Electronics has developed the LRMAP5930 series of low resistance, metal alloy current sense power resistors. With values down to 200μΩ and a corresponding power rating on standard FR4 PCB of up to 10W, the maximum measurable current is over 200A, and hence in most cases restricted only by the capacity of the PCB tracks. A 50% higher power rating of 15W can be achieved for assemblies mounted on a thermal substrate such as direct bonded ceramic (DBC) or insulated metal substrate (IMS), making these resistors ideal for hybrid modules.
