Accepting an input of 5 VDC or 12 VDC, the 1-W AM1L-NZ and 2-W AM2L-NZ DC/DC converters can step up or step down to dual separated outputs of 5/5, 9/9, 12/12 or 15/15 VDC. The configuration allows for rapid load changes on the two outputs (from 10% to 100% load current) without any degradation to load regulation of either output.
"Five-dimensional" discs with a capacity 10,000 times greater than current DVDs could be on the market within 10 years, researchers reported on Wednesday.
The South Korean city of Ulsan lets water generated from processing food waste run off into the ocean, which can generate methane gas harmful to the environment. Now, with the help of a Swedish company, it is going to start converting that waste water into biogas, a type of clean fuel that can be used as power to heat buildings and even power vehicles.
Useful in piezoelectrics, electro-optics, and MEMS applications, the Trek Model PZD350A high-voltage power amplifier provides a large-signal bandwidth of 250 kHz (-3dB) and a small-signal bandwidth greater than 350 kHz (-3dB).
The U.S. Navy’s largest systems command, Naval Sea Systems Command (NAVSEA), is recruiting displaced mid-career automotive engineering professionals.
Atlantis' astronauts checked their ship's flight systems and packed up Thursday in hopes of an on-time end to their triumphant Hubble Space Telescope repair mission, although the weather prospects were dismal.
Analog Devices has introduced what is said to be the industry’s first single-IC USB isolator (universal serial bus isolator), which simplifies isolated USB-port implementation in system-critical medical and industrial equipment. Using the company's iCoupler digital isolation technology, the ADuM4160 USB isolator offers
The research team of professor Linda Nazar, graduate student David Xiulei Ji and postdoctoral fellow Kyu Tae Lee are one of the first to demonstrate robust electrochemical performance for a lithium-sulphur battery.
A Power over Ethernet (PoE), Power System-on-a-Chip (Power SoC) with 2kV integrated isolation, the AS1854 from Akros Silicon eliminates opto-couplers and integrates functionality of up to nine separate ICs, including a third-generation IEEE 802.3af/at PD controller and quad-output digital power DC-DC converters.
Measuring 3 x 3 mm with an emission angle of 80°, the 1-W OSLON SSL LED from OSRAM Opto Semiconductors accepts 350 mA for a typical brightness of 110 lumens in 5,700K and 6,500K white, with a maximum luminous flux of 130 lumens (155 lumens at 700 mA).
Like tiny Jedi knights, tunable fluidic micro lenses can focus and direct light at will to count cells, evaluate molecules or create on-chip optical tweezers, according to a team of Penn State engineers. They may also provide imaging in medical devices, eliminating the necessity and discomfort of moving the tip of a probe.
Alicia Istanbul woke up one recent Wednesday to find herself locked out of the Facebook account she opened in 2007, one Facebook suddenly deemed fake.
The head of the world's most popular search engine urged college graduates on Monday to step away from the virtual world and make human connections. Speaking at the University of Pennsylvania's commencement, Google chairman and CEO Eric Schmidt told about 6,000 graduates that they need to find out what is most important to them — by living analog for a while.
Targeting 13-W or 26-W powered device applications such as IP phones, wireless access points, or security cameras, the TPS23754 Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) controller from Texas Instruments supports DC/DC converter topologies that can achieve higher than 90 percent power conversion efficiency.
