Broadband Technology 2000 Ltd

BT2000 has a synergistic range of electronic systems, boxes and components which are used in a hugely diverse range of applications from miniature die, used in medical surgery, to major security systems.

BT2000 was created in 1995 as a major supplier to the telecoms industry in a time of huge growth and great expectations in the electronics sector. Although our product mix has changed, our passion to bring new entrepreneurial electronic products into the 21st century has grown exponentially to meet those expectations.

Located on the M4 corridor and in the Berkshire technology triangle, we are ideally located to service both the logistical and technical needs of our international customer base.

Our SignalQuest range covers the nano-power miniature mechanical, vibration, tilt, shock & acceleration switch sensors, used in security and tracking (see positioned on the bee below) whilst the rugged GIX Gravity Gyro Inclinometers are ideal for diggers and freight loading applications.

The InvenSense motion ICs and miniature MEMs microphones are world leaders in “Sensing Everything”. Integrating MotionFusion algorithms & calibration firmware with leading edge gyroscopes, accelerometers, compasses into miniature MEMs, their products are used in applications as diverse as remote controls, trackers (see bird below) to UAVs & wearables.

Memsic is unique in their method of sensing acceleration and gas flow.  They are the first and only company to integrate a MEMS inertial sensor and signal processing circuitry together on a standard monolithic CMOS wafer. The thermal MEMS accelerometer is based on the principle of convection of heated gas molecules within a sealed cavity. Highly accurate temperature sensors can detect the change in temperature profile resulting from very small changes in acceleration (or inclination). This makes them virtually immune to out-of-band vibration and shock (providing shock tolerance of 50,000g!)

Within the Memsic low noise, high accuracy AMR (Anisotropic Magneto-Resistive) magnetic sensor the resistance of the sensor varies with the applied magnetic field; this makes it ideal for electronic compass, GPS navigation and magnetic field detection applications.

Germany based Sensdev offer pressure sensors in Differential, Gage, Relative, Vacuum and Absolute pressure types. They supply both Analogue & 15bit Digital output (via I2C or SPI) in a single package with a measuring range of 0.6mbar to 25bar, wide supply voltage range from 3.3V to 40V, temperature compensated (-40C to +125C) and fast response times of 0.56ms to 20ms (factory selectable). They are automotive approved (SCPE -55C to 150C with 4kV filtering available) and can be supplied to a customer’s unique cable and connector specification.

Typical applications are automotive (tyre pressure etc), medical respirators & inhalers, breathalysers (see fish below), automation systems and test equipments.

Our low ESR supercapacitor range offer customers, who use battery powered products for RF applications, the ability to extend the life of the battery by minimising switching stress and extending the temperature range of the battery.

The miniature Cellergy Supercapacitor range offers Voltages of 1.4V to 12V, 7mF to 700mF, -40C to +70C with upto 500000 discharge cycles, all with Ultra-low leakage – Applications includes remote metering, RFID Tags and LED flash.

The miniature UTC Ultracapacitor technology utilises metal oxide deposited on titanium substrate and sealed with a polymer between electrodes. This allows one of the lowest profiles in the market to date from 0.18mm thick, a wide voltage range of 2V to 16V, 2mF to 120mF, -40C +75C and a full discharge cycle of 10 million+.

Vinatech offers the small package Electric Double Layer Capacitor (EDLC) and Hybrid Capacitor (P-EDLC) HY-CAP brand of Super Capacitors. The HY-CAP series offers high capacitance ranges from 500mF to 500 Farad in EDLC and the Hybrid P-EDLC technology doubles the capacitance density to 3000F. Applications include Electric toys, AMR (Automatic Meter Reading), UPS (uninterruptible power supply), electric valves, industrial robot/UAV and HEV (Hybrid Electrical Vehicle).

The Cymbet miniature rechargeable solid state battery and RTC combo IC offers battery backup for upto 6 days. Cymbet solid state batteries utilise semiconductor fabrication processes to produce a unique rechargeable energy storage device with no liquids, gels, or harmful chemicals. EnerChip devices have the unique capability to be packaged as a standard semiconductor component or as a bare die co-packaged with other integrated circuits  – see Miniature Glaucoma Sensor here:

Maestro Wireless supply miniature low power GPS/Glonass/Galileo/Beidou modules with fast time to first fix.  

MSI specialises in integrated circuit filter design, both switched capacitor and integrated RC active filters.

Pericom Inc  offer digital line interface ICs and a range of XOs
