Microminiature connector solutions offer compact size, low cost, high performance and flexibility – making them a perfect fit for wireless handheld devices. Below is a review of three key microminiature solutions for typical 40-circuit signal applications including relative performance, features and benefits, size attributes and rank by total cost of system solution.
When English naturalist Charles Darwin penned his landmark book “On the Origin of Species” he could have just as easily been referring to the evolution of battery holders. Much as he theorized that traits evolved to fill ecological niches, different styles of battery holders have evolved to fill the many engineering niches and market needs that developed over the years.
Novaled developed a 15 cm x15 cm white OLED device with a thickness of less than 2 mm. The Novaled OLED stack allows for a natural and warm white light performing a very high color rendering index (CRI) of 90. The perception of this light is similar to
As the aircraft industry strives for robust protection from lightning induced transients, EMI, ESD and voltage surge for its sophisticated state of the art electronic systems and medical equipment manufacturers look to eliminate the effects of EMI in imaging and diagnostic equipment, the role of interconnect device capabilities at providing this protection to internal systems becomes imperative.
Targeting demanding applications such as in UPS inverters, low-voltage power tools, and ORing, a series of 30-V power HEXFET TO-220 MOSFETs from International Rectifier are qualified to industrial grade and MSL1.
The need for speed is everywhere. The Internet Protocol has become tremendously important for combining data, voice and video in the same data stream. Different networks like IMS (Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem), VoIP (Voice-over-Internet Protocol), Mobile VoIP, and others use the same protocol for these data packages – referred to as converging networks.
In Japan, space is a precious commodity. In the manufacturing setting, companies strive to make the most of every square inch. To that end, the Japan Industrial Imaging Association (JIIA) led the development of the Power over Camera Link (PoCL) Interface Standard for digital cameras and frame grabbers used in Machine Vision systems.
When I started in the rapid prototyping industry with 3D Systems in March of 1989 it was just months after the very first SLA system, the SLA-1, was introduced at the Autofact Show in Detroit in 1988. This first rapid prototyping system was invented by Chuck Hull, an engineer trained in photosensitive polymers.
U.S. telecommunications regulators on Thursday sought public comment on how to define "broadband," a step that could impact how the industry delivers Internet services to consumers.
The fight against a legal settlement that would give Google Inc. the digital rights to millions of copyrighted books is starting to resemble a heavyweight brawl in the library. Microsoft Corp., Yahoo Inc. and Amazon.com Inc. are joining a coalition that hopes to rally opposition to Google's digital book ambitions and ultimately persuade a federal judge to block or revise the Internet search leader's plans.
Burgeoning micro blogging and social networking tool Twitter has announced plans to add location based service to its platform. To date, Twitter’s API (Application Programming Interface) has only allowed developers to roll out location based services based on the information in the ‘location’ field of a user’s account, which really could say anything.
Panasonic Corp. has signed on "Titanic" director James Cameron and his upcoming film in an advertising blitz for its TVs equipped with 3-D technology, both sides said Friday. The deal between the major Japanese electronics maker and Twentieth Century Fox Film Corp.'s "Avatar" - the first major Hollywood 3-D release that's not animation
U.S. researchers said on Thursday they have found a way to make large-scale flexible display screens that can be stretched to fit the contours of a bus yet are transparent enough so riders can see out windows. The thin, light screens might be used to make
The GT-81085 series of fixed blade wall plug-in supplies from Globtek are intended for portable applications. Regulated Output voltage is 5 V to 13.5 V, with up to 15 W of continuous power. Other features include: regulated output; built-in protection features including O.C., S.C., O.V., and thermal, accepts Universal Input of 90 Vac- 264 Vac
The MAX15500/MAX15501 industrial analog-output signal conditioners from Maxim are purportedly the industry's first output signal conditioners to operate directly off of a 24 V field supply. They feature ±10 V and 4 mA- 20 mA outputs, along with ±35 V circuit protection.
