    Panasonic's Refined Radio Frequency Immense advancements in the semiconductor market have had numerous effects on modern electronics, including rising clock rates, extended functionality of devices, and decreasing size of electronic products. Aside from including these features, many applications require switches offering galvanic separation of input and output.   For application purposes, Panasonic uses optocouplers and MOSFETS, or analog CMOS switches.

    A Challenge Of Circuit Protection Small size, reliability, and low power consumption are requirements for components used to switch signal outputs in sensors, control units, or on measurement cards. An important function is the galvanic isolation of sensitive electronics from possible disturbances on the output side, e.g. voltage peaks or overcurrents, which can arise due to short circuits or improper use. The new short circuit protected PhotoMOS family from Panasonic is optimally prepared to meet these challenges.

    NaPiOn Motion Sensors And The M.I.T. Light Bridge Panasonic donated NaPiOn Infrared Motion/Proximity Sensors to the M.I.T Light Bridge Project. The M.I.T Project is a dynamic, interactive LED array that responds to pedestrians on the Massachusetts Avenue Bridge in Cambridge, MA. The 10,000 pixel display is activated by sensors (proximity sensors, cameras, buttons, microphones, mobile phones) that respond to the movement and activities of viewers in the area.

    Modern applications use complex controls to enhance safety, implement convenient features, and save energy. Control units use switches to control the sensors and actuators in a system. Since most applications are powered from the AC mains network, several AC voltage loads have to be controlled (For example, heaters, lamps, motors, fans or valves).
