Measuring 6 × 3.5 mm in actuator lengths of 4.3 or 5 mm, CIT Relay & Switch’s CL1101 Series of SMT tactile switches have availability on a tape and reel in 1,500 pieces. The devices exhibit a tested electrical life of 100,000 cycles with an electrical rating of 50 mA at 48 VDC and dielectric strength of 1000 Vrms minimum
Coming in heights of 1U, 2U or 3U and depths of 203, 330 and 457 mm, Hammond Electronics’ RM family of aluminum rack cases operate while mounted in a 19” rack or as a desktop enclosure. The units consist of an extruded
Using a data interface system for the PCI Express bus, Conduant’s StreamStor Amazon Express storage controller exhibits more than 7 hours of sustained recording and playback performance at 600 MB/s. The full-sized PCI Express card installs into any PC with open PCI Express slots and supports up to 16 SerialATA disk
Having a convection-cooled operating temperature range from -25°C to ~50°C, PowerGate’s TRACOPOWER TOP-100 Series of open-frame power supplies deliver 100 W of power in industrial, consumer market and
Operating with ThreadX RTOS, Express Logic’s TraceX V3.1 embedded development analysis tool collects a database of system and application “events” on the target system including thread context switches, preemptions, suspensions, terminations and system interrupts. Events are logged in the database by ThreadX
Targeting Mil/Aero and other hi-rel applications, Vishay's Tantamount Hi-Rel COTS T97 Series of solid tantalum chip capacitors are presented as the first of their kind with a 63-V rating and a capacitance of 22µF in the "F" case size. The part addresses the long-standing issue of derating, allowing designers to incorporate solid surface-mount tantalum capacitors into their hi-rel +28-V power supply designs.
Having a UL- and cUL-rating of 20 A at 125 VAC, Phaseda’s HY29 Series power toggle switches present a horse power rating of 2 with availability in single-pole and double-pole versions. The TUV-approved component offers functions including ON-OFF, ON-ON, ON-OFF-ON and (ON)-OFF in industrial control applications.

Performing over an output frequency of 26 MHz, Valpey Fisher’s VFTX312 temperature compensated crystal oscillator (TCXO) includes a voltage control option from 0 to 3.3 V that is suitable for femtocell (3GPP) reference timing. The device offers a temperature stability of 0.1 ppm while operating over a temperature range
According to Doug Ramsey of UC San Diego, “The information technology industry consumes as much energy and has roughly the same ‘carbon footprint’ as the airline industry.” This is because of the unparalleled growth in high-speed electronic equipment, and the corresponding electricity requirements. Not only is energy necessary for the systems themselves, but as IT equipment blossoms, so does their cooling requirements. It’s an implacable scenario that currently plagues the IT industry. Similar to hipster environmentalist celebrities who globe-trot on private jets, how do you conduct scientific research into efficiency issues when your investigative process gobbles up energy?
