U-blox, the Swiss wireless component manufacturer, in the ending of last year introduced their new GNSS modules: NEO-M8U and EVA-M8E, which are dedicated for independent (without any CAN signals) inertial navigation in vehicles. These modules allow, with sufficient accuracy, to determine the location of the vehicle in areas without any GNSS signal, such as tunnels and underground parking lots.
u-blox spent few years to develop and bring to the market new technology, which is breaking point for applications where power consumption and link budget of standard cellular products are not good enough. The market leading SARA-N2 series brings Narrow Band Internet of Things (NBIoT) technology to industrial customers, allowing early adopters to be the driving force for deployment, and giving them the opportunity to have a jump start for their designs before the competition. Technology is tested by u-blox already since 2015, with many trial installations worldwide. Engineering samples and evaluation kits are available to order at your local Microdis office.
German wireless module manufacturer - Amber Wireless - has presented a new ISM approach to the growing IoT (Internet of Things) trend.

The M1575HCT-22-P is a omnidirectional high performance passive antenna designed for the GPS L1 band, and built on proprietary Helicore®technology. This technology provides exceptional pattern control, polarization purity and high efficiency in a very compact form factor. The antenna is ground plane independend, and is not affected by the closeness of the human body (no detuning).
The ultra light design weighs only 2 grams making this antenna ideal for the most demanding, mechanically constrained platforms including handheld devices, asset tracking, seismic recording instruments and many more.
SARA-G3xx - the new family of low-power and cost effective GSM/GPRS modules introduced by u-blox is continuation of well known, and market proven modules LEON-Gxxx.
Compact 16x26 mm LGA module offers traditional for u-blox, outstanding quality and reliability, excellent electrical parameters (fe. low power consumption 0.6mA, high sensitivity) and useful features like CellLocate (navigation without GPS/GNSS), DTMF, in-band modem support for eCall and ERA Glonass, integration with GPS/GNSS modules including built in Assisted GPS client.
SARA-G3xx GSM/GPRS modules are pin compatible to the smallest 3G HSPA (UMTS/GSM) modules SARA-U2xx.
SARA form factor supports simple migration to u-blox’ LISA UMTS and CDMA, and TOBY LTE modules via PCB layout compatibility (nested design). The modules are fully qualified according to ISO 16750, and ready to be used in "in vehicle" applications.
Microdis expands it's portfolio of antennas and presents a new series, dedicated for maritime applications.
For more information please inquire in one of our offices.
Microdis Holding, owner of Microdis Electronics Group, signed a partnership agreement with MEDI-Kabel, known supplier of wires and cables in the Central and Eastern European market.
The products are used in such market segments like industrial applications, household (White Goods), automotive, automation, telecommunications, broadcast AV and medical solutions.
LEON-G100 & LEON-G100 certified in Ukraine
CellLocate - positioning even without GPS signal introduced by u-blox
CellLocate can be used together with GPS/Glonass/Galileo receivers - to estimate position when GPS signal is blocked (in the garage, tunnel, inside the building) or jammed (using jammer). Moreover, accuracy is high enough for many applications, where CellLocate can be used alone, saving the cost of GPS/Glonass receiver.

Seoul Semiconductor has launched a high-performance, surface mount LED - the STW8Q2PA. This product with its low power, high efficacy, and low thermal resistance is a perfect solution for high-density arrays, strip lighting, tube lighs and backlighting applications where a more uniform light distribution is desired.
Microdis Electronics has signed a distribution agreement with Amber Wireless – a German manufacturer of wireless modems and modules, present on the market since over 10 years. The Cologne based producer is one of the first who brought a Wireless M-Bus module to the market, designed specifically for AMR (Automatic Meter Reading) applications, according to the EN13757-4: 2005 standard.
AAEON announces a low power consumption Embedded Controller - AEC-6821. The AEC-6821, which adopts the AMD Geode LX 800 processor, is an advanced version of AEC-6820 and targets the transportation and infrastructure market. It reduces time and resources of system integration and ensures quality and stability for any project.
Seoul Semiconductor, a world-leading LED manufacturer, has launched the new Acriche family (100-230V AC powered LEDs) member - A4.
Advanced technology used in Acriche A4 is able to combine two key factors : CRI (Color Rendering Index) and brightness.
The A4 devices have a color temperature of 3000K and include multiple new technologies providing excellent efficiency of 75 lumens per watt (lm/W) with a High CRI of 85.
Due to their similarity to natural light High CRI sources are excellent for high quality light applications replacing warm white incandescent and CFL light sources.

X|Synergy is the complete RJ45 connection system to be used in harsh environment.
The RJ45 connector standardized per ISO/IEC 11801 and 24702 became, besides the fiber optic LC connectors, the “connection system of the internet era”. It is used for most of the data communication interfaces. With the growing need of integrated communication it is now also entering harsh environments when for example automation islands are integrated in production process networks.
