Tesla Motors' Model S is a stunningly beautiful car that that builds upon the cachet of the Roadster and proves the company is serious about pushing electric vehicles into the mainstream. Company CEO Elon Musk compared the luxury and practicality of his car to the BMW 5 series and Mercedes Benz CLS sedans and said history will place it alongside the Ford Model T.
Purportedly resistant to impact, thermal shock, vibration, and fatigue cracking, the Supreme 10HT adhesive from Master Bond is serviceable over a temperature range of 4 K to over 400°F. It is resistant to chemicals including water, oil, fuels, and most organic solvents. The adhesive meets NASA low outgassing specifications

Other features include: 200 ppb frequency offset over 0° to 70°C, with low phase noise of –145 dBc at 10 kHz offset for 20 MHz carrier frequency
The V3021 dual-channel 10GbE connectivity and packet processing Advanced Mezzanine Card from AdvancedIO Systems provides two front-panel SFP+ ports, a Xilinx Virtex-5 XC5VLX110T FPGA, and SRAM memory.
Xiaohang Quan ’09 was working on her senior thesis when she found a miscalculation in the hardware of the world’s largest particle accelerator.
A family of high-reliability power management ICs from Texas Instruments target applications exposed to long-term radiation and extreme temperatures, such as downhole drilling, x-ray imaging, satellite systems and high-altitude avionics.
Featuring non-linear, bi-directional voltage-current characteristics, a Zinc Oxide-based varistor series of voltage suppressors from AVX exhibits a leakage current of 2µA maximum. The UltraGuard Series comes in discrete chips available in 0402, 0603, and 0805 sizes; 2-element packages in 0405 and 0508 sizes; and 4-element 0612 packages
With built-in controllers and LED backlights, LXD Small TFT Displays don't require an external video controller. Sizes range from 2.0” to 4.3”. Each display is designed with a touch panel option. The interconnect is a flex circuit to a Molex series connector 51296 (bottom mount) or 54104 (top mount). Intended applications include aerospace
Compact enough to fit within a 5U horizontal ATCA enclosure, Elma Bustronic’s 6-slot AdvancedTCA Backplane in a Mesh topology also allows a Dual Star topology implementation.
Intended for applications that must run large-scale programs rapidly while achieving high performance levels, the RX family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCU) deliver a processing performance of 1.65 MIPS/MHz while consuming 0.03mA/MHz CPU core current.
Twenty years to the day that two electrochemists ignited controversy by announcing signs of cold fusion at an infamous press conference in Utah, a separate team has made a similar claim in the same US state. But this time, the evidence is being taken more seriously.
From planar HEXFETs to TrenchFETs and superjunction FETs, silicon power MOSFETs have continued to evolve for the last 30 years to satisfactorily serve numerous markets. In fact, during that period, there have been some two orders of magnitude improvement in performance. However, this silicon power device is rapidly approaching maturity
Typically, industries use standards to improve product quality and enable component sharing across projects. In practice, such standards achieve wide acceptance since the synergistic effects provide significant benefits to the user community. The hardware and software industry is full of such standards, but there is an exception: the deeply embedded microcontroller market
A startup founded by technology entrepreneur Steve Perlman says it has developed a technology to deliver video games on demand, an idea that threatens to eventually take consoles out of the equation. OnLive Inc., Perlman's Palo Alto, Calif.-based company, planned to unveil its technology Tuesday night at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Addressing a variety of harsh, mobile and mission-critical environments, the ESMexpress XM2 from MEN Micro is based on the Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300 processor with a clock frequency of up to 2.26 GHz.
