International Rectifier announced the introduction of the IRS2505LTRPBF, the industry’s smallest power factor correction (PFC) boost IC in a 5-pin SOT23 package for switch mode power supply (SMPS), LED drivers, fluorescent and HID electronic ballast applications.
Littelfuse announced it has introduced the SRDA3.3 Series TVS Diode Array – SPA Diodes. The SRDA3.3 Series integrates low-capacitance steering diodes with an additional zener diode to protect data lines against electrostatic discharge (ESD) and high surge events.
American Sensor Technologies, Inc. (AST) now offers its pressure transmitters with high pressure process connections using 316L stainless steel to enable users to integrate products that require liquid or gas compatible with 316L stainless steel, such as hydrogen, natural gas, or water.
maxon motor has added two new gearheads to the already successful GP 32 program. Significant improvements have been made to the single-stage planetary gearhead: The planetary carrier has been reinforced, the bearings have been repositioned, and a ceramic version is now available.
Micrel, Inc. launched the SY88053CL and SY88063CL limiting post amplifiers. The devices are suitable for FTTH XGPON and 10GEPON OLT (Optical Line Terminal) applications supporting the build out of next generation PON networks. This product family is also suitable for use in fiber optic transceiver modules
Networks of spherical nanoparticles embedded in elastic materials may make the best stretchy conductors yet, engineering researchers at the University of Michigan have discovered. Flexible electronics have a wide variety of possibilities, from bendable displays and batteries to medical implants that move with the body.
XMOS today announces the launch of the latest version of xTIMEcomposer Studio development suite for its xCORE multicore microcontrollers. The new integrated development environment (IDE) includes everything required for embedded design in a single Eclipse-based environment....
Today on Engineering Newswire, brought to you by Interpower Corporation, we're mapping blood vessels to recognize your face, spicing up swamps with robotic frog mates, and swimming with the robotic fishes, literally, not figuratively, no one died.
Stanford University scientists have created the thinnest, most efficient absorber of visible light on record. The nanosize structure, thousands of times thinner than an ordinary sheet of paper, could lower the cost and improve the efficiency of solar cells, according to the scientists.
TCP, the transmission control protocol, is one of the core protocols governing the Internet: If counted as a computer program, it's the most widely used program in the world. One of TCP's main functions is to prevent network congestion by regulating the rate at which computers send data.
A Yale particle physicist and choreographer have developed a workshop that uses dance and photography to help students understand the Higgs Boson particle....
Verizon Wireless, the country's largest cellphone carrier, on Thursday said it's joining AT&T and T-Mobile in providing an installment plan for its phones, aiming to satisfy customers who want to upgrade their devices faster or avoid paying the upfront cost of their phones. The plan, dubbed...
Nerve cells make their connections at junctions called synapses, following a precise architecture that is mostly laid out early in development. But how do the synapses maintain their correct positions as the animal grows? Scientists at Yale School of Medicine and the University of Utah have produced the first evidence that this process relies on glial cells to communicate growth information, and identified a novel molecular pathway that could be ...
Streaming service Sky Go, along with the agency BBDO, are behind the talking window ads. Using bone conduction technology, transmitters mounted to the window of a train window emit high frequencies whose vibrations are suited to penetrate the cranial bones of a passenger who rests his head against the window to deliver the advertising message – a far cry from
Engineers from Brown University have mapped out the amounts of compression required to cause wrinkles, creases, and folds to form in rubbery materials. The findings could help engineers control the formation of these structures, which can be useful in designing nanostructured materials for flexible electronic devices or surfaces that require variable adhesion.
