Provided in a CLCC-2 flat SMT ceramic package 0.7-mm thick, the VLMW82 Series of white LEDs from Vishay have a thermal resistance of 20°C/W and an optical power output from 9,000 to 18,000 mcd. Offering a service life of approximately 50,000 hours, the InGaN devices have a 3.3 x 3.4 mm footprint and are optimized for display backlighting and other illumination applications.
Providing a simultaneous-sampling measurement system for demanding signal acquisition applications, two multi-channel, 16-bit, delta-sigma analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) from Texas Instruments operate with a 25-kHz bandwidth, a 2 µV/C offset drift and a SNR of up to 97 dB. The ADS1174 (4-channel) and ADS1178 (8-channel) ADCs have operating modes that allow for optimization of speed (52 kS/s) or power dissipation (7 mW/channel).
Advanced technology vehicles are the wave of the future, but they aren’t the elegant solutions advocates posit them as. The conservation of one resource inevitably comes at the expense of another resource. A report by Carey W. King and Michael E. Webber of the University of Texas suggests that plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEVs) will place a strain on the nation’s freshwater resources. The research compares miles driven with a conventional internal combustion engine vs. a PHEV.
Providing a fixed amount of phase shift for adjusting coaxial cable electrical length, Narda Microwave-East’s Model 4572B phase trimmer provides phase adjustment of ±2° between 3 and 18 GHz. The 19-g
