Utilizing a DC to DC converter with 2.4W output power, Schurter’s PSDM Series of drive modules also use a low-side gate driver in driving power transistors (IGBT/MOSFET). The devices’ drive signal is transferred by a pulse transformer or optoisolator and can be used as a voltage stabilizer/power distributor. The modules are built to EN 61248-5 and EN 61558-1 standards. Two versions
Featuring a dual-channel gasket, Bud Industries’ ANS Series die-cast NEMA boxes are made with a one-piece molded outer Silicone gasket and a wire-mesh with sponge rubber. The EMI/RFI-shielding devices meet NEMA 1, 2, 4, 4X, 12, 13, and IP65 ratings. The ADC-12 aluminum-alloy

Focusing on MR Imaging technology, Johnson’s MMCX non-magnetic RF connectors provide a snap-on coupling design that are suitable for flex and array coils in MRI equipment for appendages. The Type-Ndevices are made from high purity copper alloys and deliver
Utilizing thin-film thermoelectric coolers, Nextreme Thermal Solutions’ and Princeton Lightwave’s SWIR (short wave infrared) focal plane sensor features Indium Gallium Arsenide (InGaAs) 2-D focal plane arrays. The eye-safe device senses nightglow radiation at 1.6 um wavelengths. The imaging sensor
Delivering up to 1.0 TB, Newer Technology’s Guardian MAXimus eMAX external RAID-1 Mirror plug-and-play storage drive has 5400 rpm and up to 64 MB of drive cache with a transfer rate up to 100 MB/s. The US/International 90 V to 240 V, 4.2 A, UL-listed power supply comes with a USB 2.0 “B” port
Performing at temperatures from -40°C to +175°C, Cinch Connectors’ Dura-Con Micro-D connector family has an insulator in tooled sizes in 9-15-25-50-100-120 positions and a seven-point twist-pin design. The interconnects in these devices can handle over 50 G of shock (Mil-Std 1344, Method 2004, Condition E) and 20 G of vibration (Mil-Std 1344, Method 2005, Condition IV). The connectors are appropriate
Design is a balance struck between style, functionality, technology, and construction (often as a compromise). But what makes a design “elegant”? The iPod is inarguably an elegant design, but then again so is the standard wooden mousetrap. This month we’re running some articles on design and comments on “elegant” design. Let us know if you agree with the authors or add comments of your own at www.ecnmag.com/designtalk-elegant-design.aspx
With a life cycle of 3,000 operations, ITT Interconnect Solutions' Universal Contact stamped contact uses pre-loading and anti-lift designs and comes with dome contact points and “side wings”. Addressing solderless component interconnection applications
Capable of running in many .NET frameworks, National Instruments’ Measurement Studio 8.5 software includes user interface controls, such as ASP.NET Web Forms, ASP.NET scientific, and ASP.NET AJAX server.

The Microsoft Visual Studio 2008
Designed to address advanced automation applications, Technosoft’s TMC-3D 8-axis motion controller includes a digital servo drive to control up to 8 Technosoft intelligent drives (including itself) via CAN-bus
One issue facing design engineers is echnology selection. Choosing a device today is more than just an exercise in packaging and pin out, there are often multiple technologies and/or methodologies to choose from. Here is a collection of viewpoints from a group of engineers on how they select tech.
Researchers at TU Delft (Netherlands) and the FOM Foundation for Fundamental Research on Matter have found irrefutable proof that the so-called avalanche effect by electrons occurs in specific, very small semiconducting crystals.
Able to drive 4-wire DC fans and blowers, Control Resources’ SmartFan Cirrus-6 fan speed controller accepts commands from a custom or an I2C interface. The controller handles tach pulses from 6, 12, 24, or 48 VDC fans
