While scientists are finding ways to make batteries smaller but even more powerful, problems can arise when these batteries are much larger and heavier than the devices themselves. University of Missouri researchers are developing a nuclear energy source that is smaller, lighter and more efficient.
In its search for fugitives, the FBI has begun using facial-recognition technology on millions of motorists, comparing driver's license photos with pictures of convicts in a high-tech analysis of chin widths and nose sizes. The project in North Carolina has already helped nab at least one suspect.
Tektronix, Inc announced the MSO70000 Series of Mixed Signal Oscilloscopes. The instruments have up to 20 channels of measurement capture (four analog and 16 digital) with analog bandwidth ranging from 4 GHz to 20 GHz and 80 ps digital channel timing resolution. The MSO70000 Series combines
Gigahertz-Optik’s hand-held BTS256-LED is designed to measure luminous flux or illuminance, color data and spectral distribution of pc board mounted LEDs, discrete LEDs within a module, miniature lamps, endoscopes and any narrow beam emitting light source. Larger size light sources can
GlobTek’s GT-91085-1548 48V power over Ethernet (PoE) active injector offers a fully IEEE compliant solution for remote powering of wireless LAN (WLAN) access points, voice over IP phones and network security cameras. The active injector has automatic detection and
Containing Swept Quartz crystals, the Model 1118 family of clock oscillators from Vectron International purportedly eliminates the potential for significant frequency shifts as a result of impurities.
Crystek's CPLL58-4240-4240 PLL/Synthesizer operates at 4240 MHz with a typical Step Size of 2500 KHz. The PLL/Synthesizer is programmed using a standard three line interface
My good friend Sriram Peruvemba of E-Ink sent me a Phosphor Brand Watch with an E-Ink display in it. I used the opportunity to get a reaction from my friends and colleagues and see if I liked it myself. I am a hard-core analog-watch man, and feel that the hands of a watch evoke the cycles of the day as they tell the time, an analog representation of the day in microcosm on my wrist.
STMicroelectronics has introduced what is purportedly the first single-chip audio subsystem IC to include 3D sound enhancement for integration in small equipment.
Russia expects to extend the life of the International Space Station beyond 2015, although Moscow must bear the brunt of flights after the United States retires its shuttles, officials said on Sunday.
The biggest risk for investors in technology, with stock prices up a whopping 55 percent this year, is they might be just a little too happy. All the buzz isn't without cause: Corporate technology spending could be set to rebound next year, cost-cutting is paying dividends, and dealmaking is back in a big way.
Addressing DC blocking issues from 16 kHz (-3dB roll-off) to 40 GHz, the GX Series broadband capacitor from AVX is orientation insensitive with a standard EIA 0402 footprint to minimize board space requirements.
A physicist working at the world's largest atom smasher has been arrested on suspicion of links to al-Qaida, adding to the woes of the $10 billion project that ceased operation a year ago - just days after its celebrated start up.
Targeting precision motion control applications, the MotoDrive PDE Captive Linear Actuator from Haydon Kerk comes with an integrated chopper drive. The device has a step resolution of 200 full steps per revolution to 12,800 steps per revolution when micro-stepping.
The Russian Soyuz capsule carrying Cirque du Soleil founder Guy Laliberte and two other space travelers landed safely in Kazakhstan on Sunday, ending the entertainment tycoon's mirthful space odyssey.
