Prosecutors demanded a four-year prison term Monday for a South Korean scientist disgraced in a cloning scandal that shook the international scientific community and led to his trial on fraud and other charges. Hwang Woo-suk was fired from the prestigious Seoul National University after purported breakthroughs
When Discovery flies to the international space station this week, it will deliver a new treadmill named for a TV comedian and pick up a Buzz Lightyear toy. In another month, a wealthy circus performer will rocket to the space station. Add that to all the Twittering astronauts and NASA suddenly has a fresh, hip look that is attracting audiences that may have ignored the space program in the past. "More normal folks," the chief of NASA's space operations, Bill Gerstenmaier, says of NASA's newer audience.
Apple Inc. told federal regulators Friday that it blocked the Google Voice program from running on the iPhone because it alters important functions on the device - yet Apple denied that it has rejected Google's application outright. "Contrary to published reports, Apple has not rejected the Google Voice application, and continues to study it," Apple said in a letter to the Federal Communications Commission.
Yahoo Inc. and Microsoft Corp. hope that by joining forces, they can tilt the balance of power in Internet search away from Google Inc. First, however, Yahoo and Microsoft have to convince regulators that their plan won't hurt online advertisers and consumers. As the U.S. Justice Department reviews the proposed partnership, approval figures to hinge on this question
At 75 mO @ -4.5 V, the FDZ371PZ from Fairchild Semiconductor is purportedly the industry’s lowest RDS(ON) 20 V P-Channel MOSFET. It provides ESD protection of 4.4 kV and the WL-CSP package utilizes 4 µm x 250 µm lead-free solder balls. Package height, when mounted, is 0.4 mm.
At 92 percent efficiency, the TPS62750 2.25-MHz DC/DC step-down converter from Texas Instruments provides up to 1-A typical input current. The device supports an input voltage from 2.9 V to 6 V, with +/-10 percent current accuracy. It also features hot plug, load disconnect, and short circuit (Vin/Vout) protection
Coming in a low profile (MD1) form factor, the PCIe-COM232-8 PCI Express card from ACCES I/O Products features eight RS-232 ports. Each port is capable of supporting data rates up to 921.6 kbps. The card features a x1 lane PCI Express connector which can be used in any available x1, x2, x4, x8, x12, or x16 PCI Express expansion slot.
For over 100 years, Underwriters Laboratories’ ever-recognizable UL Mark has been a beacon of safety and peace of mind, guiding consumers to reputable electrical products that have been rigorously tested and approved for safe use. To this day, the mere presence – or lack of – the trusted UL Mark is enough to make or break the purchases of millions of consumers worldwide.
Microminiature connector solutions offer compact size, low cost, high performance and flexibility – making them a perfect fit for wireless handheld devices. Below is a review of three key microminiature solutions for typical 40-circuit signal applications including relative performance, features and benefits, size attributes and rank by total cost of system solution.
When English naturalist Charles Darwin penned his landmark book “On the Origin of Species” he could have just as easily been referring to the evolution of battery holders. Much as he theorized that traits evolved to fill ecological niches, different styles of battery holders have evolved to fill the many engineering niches and market needs that developed over the years.
Novaled developed a 15 cm x15 cm white OLED device with a thickness of less than 2 mm. The Novaled OLED stack allows for a natural and warm white light performing a very high color rendering index (CRI) of 90. The perception of this light is similar to
As the aircraft industry strives for robust protection from lightning induced transients, EMI, ESD and voltage surge for its sophisticated state of the art electronic systems and medical equipment manufacturers look to eliminate the effects of EMI in imaging and diagnostic equipment, the role of interconnect device capabilities at providing this protection to internal systems becomes imperative.
Targeting demanding applications such as in UPS inverters, low-voltage power tools, and ORing, a series of 30-V power HEXFET TO-220 MOSFETs from International Rectifier are qualified to industrial grade and MSL1.
The need for speed is everywhere. The Internet Protocol has become tremendously important for combining data, voice and video in the same data stream. Different networks like IMS (Internet Protocol Multimedia Subsystem), VoIP (Voice-over-Internet Protocol), Mobile VoIP, and others use the same protocol for these data packages – referred to as converging networks.
