The IMEC nanoelectronics research institute has developed a method to integrate high-speed CMOS electronics and nanophotonic circuitry based on plasmonic effects.
Engineered to accept 0.062” (1.58-mm) thick daughtercards, RDPS card edge connectors from Sullins Connector Solutions have a double-contact-point pin design as well as an operating temperature from -65°C to +150°C.
Cobham Technical Services is releasing a new version of its Vector Fields Software tool for designing rotating electrical machinery. The electromagnetic simulation software combines the accuracy of virtual prototyping using finite-element analysis with a rapid front-end design tool that allows users to create models of motors and generators in minutes.
The Altivar 12 variable-speed AC drive from Schneider Electric offers nearly 150 application-specific advanced motor-control functions.
Research in Motion Ltd's BlackBerry Curve moved past Apple Inc's iPhone in the first quarter to become the best-selling consumer smartphone in the U.S., research group NPD said on Monday.
Comprehensive System Solutions Drive LED Backlight Units in TV Displays By Peter Arkadly and Tom Kapucija, Microsemi Corporation Although the LCD TV display market has not experienced as quick a conversion rate to LED backlighting as the laptop notebook segment
Mechatronics is a relatively new field of complex systems design that encompasses the disciplines of Physics, Mechanical Engineering, Electronic Engineering and Computer Engineering.

Texas Instruments announced its TMS320F2803x Piccolo microcontrollers (MCUs) featuring the Control Law Accelerator (CLA). Unique to TI’s F2803x Piccolo MCUs, the CLA is a60 MHz, 32-bit floating-point math accelerator that operates independently of the 60 MHz C28x core, allowing for direct access to on-chip peripherals and
Design tools insert debug logic into FPGAs so engineers can focus on design problems and not on debugging the debugger.
This Month's Question: Will autonomous devices supplant remote-controlled in the area of military applications?
There are always things to consider when prototyping a design. Here are a few essays on the subject to aid you in your efforts.
Low-power, high-efficiency electronic memory could be the long-term result of collaborative research led by Cornell materials scientist Darrell Schlom. The research, to be published April 17 in the journal Science (Vol. 324 No. 5925), involves taking a well-known oxide, strontium titanate, and depositing it on silicon in such a way that the silicon squeezes it into a special state called ferroelectric -- a result that could prove key to next-generation memory devices.
With hardened-steel helical and spur gearing in ratios from 108:1 to 266:1, the VWDIR104 AC gearmotor family offers fixed output speeds from 15 to 6 RPM with continuous torque ratings from 340 to 500 in-lbs (38.4 to 56.5 N-m). Features include built-in face mounting compatible with Genesis mounts and an overhung load capability up to 400 lbs. (181.8 kg.).
Provided in a 19" rackmount server chassis, the RTS 2701 Recording and Playback System from Pentek includes a Dual-channel multiband transceiver. The system is well suited for digitizing analog signals from a communications system or a radar system and delivering that data to high-speed disk arrays at sustained data rates as high as 500 MB/second.
