PR News: Artesyn Adds 72 New Models to Rail DC-DC Converter Module Family

Artesyn Adds 72 New Models to Rail DC-DC Converter Module Family

Tempe, Ariz. [25 May, 2017] — Artesyn Embedded Technologies today added 72 new models to its ERM family of dc-dc converter modules designed to meet the power demands and safety standard requirements of railway rolling stock applications. Covering 10 and 20 watt power output ratings, each series includes models with single 5 V, 12 V, 15 V, 24 V, or dual +/- 12 V or +/- 15 V outputs and input ranges of 9 Vdc to 36Vdc, 18 Vdc to 75 Vdc or 40 Vdc to 160 Vdc.

Encapsulated in a 1-inch by 2-inch DIP package (25.4 x 50.8), the ERM family is protected from atmospheric conditions without additional conformal coating. The dc-dc converter modules have a wide operating temperature range of minus 40 degrees Celsius to 85 degrees Celsius with derating. An optional heat sink can help heat dissipation and improve performance at high operating temperatures.

A reinforced insulation system with 3000 Vac RMS I/O isolation, combined with high EMC immunity, qualifies these new dc-dc converters for the many demanding embedded power applications in railway and other transportation systems. It is ideal for rolling stock applications such as engine management, traction control, door control, video surveillance, communications, entertainment, lighting and other on-board electrical equipment.

The first two series in the ERM family, the ERM75 and ERM50, offer 75 W and 50 W maximum power output respectively. Artesyn’s new ERM family builds on an existing portfolio of standard ac-dc and dc-dc power conversion products that are already widely used in rail control and infrastructure applications, such as signaling, control systems, access control, ticketing, RFID and information displays.

Tackling the E-Waste Problem


Focused on procuring raw materials and other goods that their companies need to be able to make their own products, electronics buyers don’t always get to see the electronic waste or “e-waste” that starts to pile up when technology becomes obsolete, inoperable, or otherwise unusable.

But it’s there. In fact, e-waste is accumulating at an alarming rate in our tech-centric world, where applications, equipment, and electronics can become obsolete almost as quickly as they are brought to market.

What Is E-Waste?
e-waste is defined as “any electronic waste that is no longer wanted or is now obsolete, whether it works or not.” That includes, but isn’t limited to, TVs, VCRs, DVD players, stereos, copiers, fax machines, tablets, computers, and mobile phones. Not always easy or convenient to recycle—local governments often have e-waste collection days a few times a year—this type of waste tends to gather dust until someone unceremoniously tosses it out with the “regular” trash.

The amount of e-waste that hits U.S. landfills every year is staggering. Earth911 says Americans throw away 9.4 million tons of electronics every year, and that simply recycling one million laptops would save the energy equivalent to the electricity used by 3,657 U.S. homes in a year, according to the EPA.

Only 12.5% of e-waste is recycled, making it one of the fastest-growing segments in the municipal solid waste stream. “Although nearly 100% of e-waste is recyclable, the current recycling rate of e-waste is not promising,”  noting that the items that can be recovered from e-waste include constituents such as plastics, metals, and glass.

One Stanford researcher is trying to help stem the flow of e-waste into the world’s landfill with a new, biodegradable semiconductor that would fully degrade when it comes into contact with a weak acid such as vinegar, according to a report in Zhenan Bao and her team in the Stanford lab have been experimenting with different types of next-gen applications “inspired by the human skin,” New Atlas’ Lisa-Ann Lee writes, “from a stretchable electrode that could help prostheses users regain their sense of touch to paper-thin heart sensors and self-healing, pressure-sensitive plastic polymers.”

As part of that experimentation, Bao has been trying to mimic the function of human skin to think about how to develop future electronic devices, and how to combine electronic properties with biodegradability. “We came up with an idea of making these molecules using a special type of chemical linkage that can retain the ability for the electron to smoothly transport along the molecule,” Bao told New Atlas, adding that the chemical bond “is sensitive to weak acid—even weaker than pure vinegar.”

While still a work in progress, this new semiconductor could help introduce biodegradability into various applications, thus helping to reduce e-waste during an era where the number of electronics in use—and, ready to toss out—continues to exacerbate every year.

Stocks News: Benchmark Electronics, TTM Technologies, and Sanmina are among the best investor bets

Benchmark Electronics, TTM Technologies, and Sanmina are among the best investor bets in the printed circuit board market this year.

Printed circuit board stocks have been very kind to investors lately. It is almost impossible to find a ticker in this sector that hasn’t been beating the S&P 500 market tracker over the last 52 weeks.

How do you pick the top names in this broadly lucrative industry? I’m here to show you my three favorites in the printed circuit board market: Sanmina (NASDAQ:SANM), Benchmark Electronics (NYSE:BHE), and TTM Technologies (NASDAQ:TTMI), each one tailor-made for a different type of investor.

The towering giant

Sanmina’s annual revenues are larger than TTM’s and Benchmark’s total sales put together. Printed circuit boards are a small component in this electronics manufacturing giant’s global empire, with 45,000 employees spread out over 25 countries and six continents.

The company is among the world’s largest circuit board manufacturers, but it consumes most of these materials in the process of putting together shelf-ready products for its customers. Sanmina does sell a small amount of printed circuit boards, cables, and other components directly to other electronics manufacturers and other clients, charging a small markup for these contracts.

Components and products produced 26% of Sanmina’s gross profits over the last six months, culled from just 20% of the company’s total sales.

The stock trades at just 13.6 times trailing earnings, and Sanmina investors have enjoyed a 49% return over the last year. Book-to-bill ratios stand at 1.1 today, which is a sign of revenue growth coming down the order pipeline. If you want safety and stability, this is your printed circuit board stock.

The over-achieving cash machine

Like Sanmina, Benchmark Electronics makes most of its hay from electronics manufacturing services. Benchmark may not be able to match Sanmina’s economies of scale, but it’s an extremely efficient cash machine.

The company produced free cash flows of $241 million in the last four quarters, based on $2.3 billion in top-line sales. That works out to a 10.5% cash margin, far above Sanmina’s 3.1%.

Moreover, Benchmark has been growing its cash profits steadily in the last three years. The company is pursuing even wider gross profit margins by doubling down on opportunities in the medical, industrial, and sensor markets. Benchmark’s highest-margin divisions grew their sales in 2016, while the less profitable computing and telecommunications segments swooned.

Benchmark should continue to raise large cash profits out of modest revenues. The stock is trading at just 4.4 times trailing free cash flows, making it an attractive target for investors with an eye for strong cash generation.

The bottom-line growth story

Finally, TTM Technologies is the purest play on circuit boards you’ll find anywhere. The market is fragmented, and many of its rivals include printed circuit boards as part of a diverse strategy, like Sanmina and Benchmark. But it’s all TTM does. Hidden in the name is another clue to TTM’s unique market position, focusing on quick “time to market” delivery of circuit board orders.

That strategy puts TTM at the vanguard of pretty much every technology sea change. This is where you go when you want to be first to market with a game-changing consumer product or military tool. The company was a major supplier to cell phone and tablet makers when those products categories were new and exciting. Today, TTM is exploring fresh vistas in automotive computing, with continued support from the smartphone market.

The billion-dollar merger with rival Viasystems in 2015 gave TTM’s revenues an overnight boost while adding the target company’s roster of auto makers to TTM’s customer Rolodex. That deal looks more prescient than ever, as automotive computing slides deeper into the mainstream.

TTM’s share prices have more than doubled in 52 weeks, but they still trade at less than 9 times forward earnings estimates and roughly 7 times trailing free cash flows. This company is going places, taking investors along for an enriching ride.
