Former National champion boxer passes away

first_imgNew Delhi, May 16 (PTI) Former national champion boxer Dennis Swamy today passed away in Hyderabad after suffering a stroke. He was 74 and is survived by his wife, two sons and a daughter. Swamy, who competed in the flyweight and bantamweight divisions, was an eight-time national champion, six of them back to back starting 1961. He never competed in the Olympics for India but went on to be conferred the Arjuna award in 1968. Swamy also served as a coach with the Sports Authority of Andhra Pradesh. “It is a huge loss for Indian boxing. Mr Swamy was king of the ring in his prime. He will be missed,” former World Cup bronze-medallist V Devarajan said expressing his condolences. Multiple world champions woman boxer MC Mary Kom also took to twitter to share her condolence message. “Its very sad to hear about the loss of Denis Swamy #Olympian and #Arjuna awardee, I express my sincere sympathy his family.

Infineon is launching first magnetic sensors based on TMR technology

first_img Continue Reading Previous Eurotech: AVR chooses IoT building blocks for smart agriculture projectNext ADI: isolated 4-port 802.3bt PoE++ PSE controller delivers up to 71.3W Infineon Technologies  launches fast analogue TMR-based angle sensors dedicated to automotive applications. This makes the company the world’s first sensor manufacturer to offer magnetic sensors based on all four magnetic technologies: HALL, GMR, AMR and TMR. Infineon will present the new XENSIV TLE5501 angle sensor family at the Sensor+Test 2018 fair. In terms of functional safety, this is a milestone: Infineon is also the first supplier in the market to achieve the highest automotive functional safety grade ASIL D for angle sensors with only one single sensor chip. Their fields of use range from steering angle applications with the highest functional safety requirements to motors for wipers, pumps and actuators and electric motors in general. They are also ready to be used in industrial and consumer applications like robotics or gimbal.The TMR technology offers a high sensing sensitivity that comes with a high output voltage realizing output signals of up to 0.37 V/V for all XENSIV TLE5501 products. Unlike other technologies, a TMR-based sensor can be connected directly to the microcontroller without any further amplification, thus saving costs for the customer. Furthermore, TMR shows a very low temperature drift reducing external calibration and compensation efforts. In addition, TMR technology is well known for its low current consumption, which is as low as 2 mA for the XENSIV TLE5501 family.The new sensor family will be available at two different qualification levels. The TLE5501 E0001 is qualified according to AEC Q100. This version is pin-compatible to the established Infineon TLE5009 but can enable cheaper systems as no additional amplifier is necessary. The other version, the TLE5501 E0002, offers ISO26262-compliant development, achieving ASIL D level with just one single chip. It incorporates decoupled bridges for redundant external angle calculation and offers highest diagnostic coverage as demanded by functional safety regulations.Share this:TwitterFacebookLinkedInMoreRedditTumblrPinterestWhatsAppSkypePocketTelegram Tags: Chips & Components last_img read more

India confirms 5 nationals killed in NZ shootings

first_imgMohsin Vora, the brother of Asif, told AFP that they were initially told his brother and nephew were injured in the attack, before a family member identified their bodies when they flew to New Zealand. “I and (the) parents of Ramiz’s wife have been granted visas. We will be leaving for New Zealand soon,” Vora said. Three of the dead from the mass shooting at Al Noor mosque were from Gujarat state. They were father and son victims Asif and Ramiz Vora, and 65-year-old retiree Mahboob Khokhar, who was visiting his son in Christchurch. Desperate families in India have been trying to confirm the safety of their relatives after 28-year-old Australian white supremacist Brenton Tarrant allegedly launched his murderous rampage. An Indian foreign ministry official in New Delhi told AFP that they are “in process of ascertaining information about all Indians affected by the terror attack”. The fifth victim, Ozair Kadir, was an aspiring commercial pilot from Hyderabad city. Five Indian nationals were among the 50 worshippers killed in the Christchurch mosque attacks, with at least two others reported to be injured, officials said Sunday. The official denied Indian media reports that claimed seven people were killed in the attack. Ansi Karippakulam Alibava — a 23-year-old from Kerala, who had lived with her husband in Christchurch since last year as she studied for a masters — was also confirmed dead. India’s embassy in New Zealand confirmed the deaths in a tweet, following the devastating shootings at twin mosques in the normally peaceful city. Vora said his 56-year-old brother had gone to meet his new grandchild a month ago.last_img read more
