If you’re designing a human-machine interface that absolutely REQUIRES durability, your best options are Grayhill’s 62SG, 62AG and 62NG optical encoders. Grayhill’s encoders are known for their reliability, long-life, seal integrity, and reducing shaft wobble.
Designers use optical encoders for many reasons. One main reason is that they employ non-contact switching technology. This technology results in an exceptionally high operational lifetime for the device. In addition to their reliability, Grayhill’s optical encoders are often chosen because of the quality tactile feedback they provide to users. Grayhill’s encoders can be single, stand-alone devices. Or they can employ concentric shafts, joysticks and/or pushbuttons integrated into single, compact devices. Custom shaft and threaded bushing sizes are available.
Typical applications for optical encoders include:
- Healthcare: patient monitors, ventilators, imagers and diagnostic equipment
- Communication systems: two-way radios, software-defined radios
- Navigation for ground vehicles and avionics
- Precision test and measuring equipment
- Sound mixing and editing consoles
- Automotive climate control and entertainment systems

Most wireless designers prefer to simulate designs before committing them to hardware. If you’re one of these, the latest news from Johanson Technology, Inc. will be of interest. JTI has made full 3D simulation of their chip antennas available in HFSS – Ansys’ 3D electromagnetic field simulation software. By using ANSYS HFSS version 18.3 or later, designers can import or drag-and-drop complete Johanson Technology EM SMT antenna models into their work space. No longer are non-disclosure agreements or special permissions required. Simulations provide designers with essential information about design decisions so that they can produce the best wireless product possible using embedded Johanson antennas.
The three chapter tutorial below will show you how to create a simulation environment, import components, tune the chip antenna, and perform a full simulation, including gain and radiation patterns.
Johanson has a broad range of chip antennas to meet customers need. Evaluation boards are also avaialble, to test the performance of the antenna prior to commiting it to a design. And Johanson also offers complimentary RF layout reviews of customer designs prior to fabrication to ensure optimum radiated performance.
For assistance with models, samples, eval boards, or to discuss design reviews, please Contact Cover 2 Sales.
SV Microwave has a complete line of VITA 67 coaxial/RF solutions providing high-density and high-performance RF interconnect for VPX applications, residing side-by-side with VITA 46 hardware. By implementing rear panel RF connectivity quick disconnect and replacement of modules is achieved, resulting in a significant reduction in Mean-Time-To-Repair (MTTR) vs. systems using front panel connectivity. SV Microwave’s solutions are 100% compliant with the VITA 67.x open specification. And SV’s unique connector retention mechanism makes installing and removing contacts far easier than competing solutions.
VITA 67.1 (4 port) and 67.2 (8 port) products can be cabled with .085″ diameter (and smaller) coaxial cable. They use floating SMPM coaxial contacts to ensure excellent RF performance in any mating condition.
SV Microwave’s VITA 67.3 solutions can also support .085″ and smaller cable connections, but they also allow for board launch connectivity. High density 67.3 solutions are also available, using SMPS coaxial contacts. Custom contact count and configurations are available for 67.3.
VITA 67 has proven performance in Military and Commercial applications, such as:
- Electronic Warfare
- Ground base stations
- Communication systems
- Radar systems
- Air Transport Racks (ATRs) without Rear Transition Modules (RTMs) or limited speed RTM
