South Korea's LG Electronics said on Sunday it would launch a 15-inch television set using organic display technology next month, the largest commercial model so far. Active-matrix organic light-emitting diode (AM-OLED) displays, which use self-glowing materials, have better picture quality, consume less power and are thinner than widely used liquid crystal displays (LCD) that need backlight units.
Advanced Micro Devices Inc (AMD) ships a lower-power version of its Opteron server chip on Monday as it tries to expand its offerings for Web hosting companies. The company declined to give its projections for revenues from the new chip. AMD said the new chip is
Available in versions accepting input voltages from 85 to 265 VAC, LEDtronics' PAR38-12X2WF series of warm-white and pure-white frosted soft-flood bulbs consume less than 18 watts.
India's space agency has abandoned the country's only satellite orbiting the moon after efforts to revive communication with it failed, an official said Monday. Communications with the Chandrayaan-1 satellite, which has been orbiting the moon for nearly a year, snapped Saturday and scientists lost control of the satellite.
Goofy videos weren't on the minds of Len Kleinrock and his team at UCLA when they began tests 40 years ago on what would become the Internet. Neither was social networking, for that matter, nor were most of the other easy-to-use applications that have drawn more than a billion people online. Instead the researchers sought to create an open network for freely exchanging information
Space shuttle Discovery pulled up and docked at the international space station on Sunday night, delivering a full load of gear and science experiments. The linkup occurred as the spacecraft zoomed more than 200 miles above the Atlantic and ended a round-the-world chase of nearly two days.
Serving coiled-cable applications such as in medical or satcom systems to protect both cable and PCB, the AMCORJ-PCB-SCA1 PCB-mounted coaxial rotary joint from Link Microtek is designed to allow a cable to be rotated through 360 degrees while connected to a printed circuit board.
The FMA-4100/4300 Series flow rate can be displayed in 23 different volumetric flow or mass flow engineering units including a user specific selection. FMA-4100/4300 flowmeters support various functions including, programmable flow totalizer, high and low
Electronic coupons, arriving by cell phone, Twitter, e-mail and Facebook, are helping generate an old standby's comeback and bringing in new, younger customers. Many shoppers, especially young consumers like 30-year-old April Englebert, used to
The PG0871NL and PG0702NL series of round-wire coil surface mount power inductors from Pulse yields a 90 percent core loss reduction and 30 percent increase in maximum operating temperature when compared to standard iron powder material. The series has a direct current resistance (DCR) of 0.68 m? to 31.5 m?
The Federal Communications Commission is taking a closer look at the practices of the wireless industry, potentially the first step toward more regulations intended to push down prices and increase choices for consumers.
The sandwich recipe recently concocted by scientists working at the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) may prove tasty for computer chip designers, who have long had an appetite for molecule-sized electronic components – but no clear way to satisfy it until now.
A mechanical failure forced a NASA contractor on Thursday to call off the first test firing of the main part of NASA's powerful new moon rocket. The test wasn't immediately rescheduled as officials scrambled to learn the root cause of the failure. Alliant Techsystems Inc. called off the rocket burn with just 20 seconds left on the countdown clock.
China Unicom Ltd. said Friday it will sell Apple Inc.'s iPhone in China this year, ending months of rumor about when the hit phone would make its long-delayed debut in the world's most populous mobile market. The phones are expected to go on sale in the fourth quarter under a multiyear deal struck between the two companies, Unicom executives said in Hong Kong.
Dell Inc.'s second-quarter results reinforce what other tech heavyweights have shown recently about the health of the personal-computer industry: it's still wounded by the recession, but is staggering back to its feet, thanks to consumers, bargain prices and little "netbook" laptops for surfing the Internet. The Round Rock, Texas-based company reported Thursday that profit fell 23 percent and sales fell 22 percent in the May-July period.
