The automobile is changing and so, too, are the electronics that make them run. The most radical example is the plug-in electric vehicle (PEV) where a 300-400V Lithium-Ion (Li-Ion) battery replaces the gas tank
The federal government will soon start handing out the first $4 billion from a pot of stimulus funds intended to spread high-speed Internet connections to more rural communities, poor neighborhoods and other pockets of the country
Owners of Sidekick phones, made by a Microsoft subsidiary and sold by T-Mobile USA, may have lost all the personal data they stored on the phone, including contact numbers. The companies say the data is
The world's book trade meets in Frankfurt next week on the brink of a long-feared transformation of the industry for which few are well prepared. Electronic reading devices like Amazon's Kindle are set to
China has banned foreign investment into its lucrative online games industry in an effort to tighten control over its virtual worlds. China's video game industry regulator the General Administration of Press and Publication (GAPP) and copyright watchdog issued
Helix Wind Corporation gave an update today on its efforts to provide cost-effective renewable energy solutions to telecommunications companies. Helix’s wind turbines can lower the costs of operating expenses associated with cell phone towers in remote locations.
With the warning of a "looming spectrum crisis" overshadowing this week's CTIA wireless industry conference in San Diego, Qualcomm's top executive weighed in on the issue of net neutrality and made a pitch for femtocells and building up the density of mobile phone wireless networks as ways to deal with the approaching spectrum crunch.
Molex Incorporated introduced a high-density lensed MT ferrule-based interconnect designed to reduce optical loss resulting from dust contamination. Meeting the same dimensional requirements as standard MT ferrule interfaces, the Molex lensed 12-fibre MT ferrule contains
Red Lion Controls’ PAXDR Dual Rate Meter provides real-time viewing of dual input rates, paired with sophisticated math functions to measure and display the sum, difference, ratio, draw or percentage of total between the two rates. PAXDR is a five-digit dual rate indicator and six-digit dual totalizer that
Configurations of the AirMax VS connector system from FCI support blade server platforms. This includes AirMax VS high-speed signal connectors, guide modules, and power connectors. The high-speed interconnect channels support industry-standard technologies such as PCI Express* Gen 2
Shin-Etsu’s KER Series was developed as a die encapsulation, die-attach adhesive, and lens-type material to provide long-term reliability for applications in general-purpose lighting and the rapidly expanding HBLED category. This methyl silicone based system hardens by using a heat cured platinum catalyst.
By minimizing the two major sources of energy loss in motor-control circuits, a series of power transistors from STMicroelectronics purportedly reduces the environmental impact of daily-use equipment. The STGW30N120KD and the STGW40N120KD are Insulated Gate Bipolar Transistors (IGBTs)
A DIPIPM family from Powerex serves three-phase inverter applications in the medium power range up to 20 HP for both 230 V to 480 VAC lines. Products range from 5 A to 75 A, and 600 V to 1200 V. Other features include
Thanks again for promptly removing the inaccurate story about NVIDIA on ECNmag.com. The story claimed that NVIDIA is exiting the high end graphics market, which is nonsense.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology (ICT) has developed a redox flow battery that could become the gold standard in Advanced Technology Vehicles. If the claims hold up, this battery would be a true breakthrough. There’s nothing revolutionary about the concept of redox flow batteries.
