The Digital Manufacturing Summit at GTC 2014 takes place on March 25-26, 2014 in San Jose, California and will provide an exciting forum for in-depth exploration of how NVIDIA's GPUs are driving innovation across automotive, aerospace, apparel, architecture-engineering-construction, and consumer products.
Generating electricity is not the only way to turn sunlight into energy we can use on demand. In a study published last week in the journal Science, Choi and postdoctoral researcher Tae Woo Kim combined cheap, oxide-based materials to split water into hydrogen and oxygen gases using solar energy with a solar-to-hydrogen conversion efficiency of 1.7 percent, the highest reported for any oxide-based photoelectrode system.
Want to know how much of the Beaufort Sea was covered in ice in January 1850? You can now do so, thanks to a new website developed with support from by the Alaska Ocean Observing System (AOOS), a region of the NOAA-led U.S. Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS).
RFMW (San Jose, CA) announces application and sales support for a new line of Low PIM (Passive Intermodulation) coaxial switches from Radiall. The rapid growth of 4G/LTE networks has led to the need for better-performing Low PIM devices. As a result, Radiall developed a broad series of switches....
Learning an instrument, dancing ballet or reading braille – the golden rule for acquiring skills such as these is: practise, practise, practise. However, there are some things that the brain learns without any training at all. RUB researchers have demonstrated in several studies...
TRUMPower (Santa Clara, CA) launched the TMP65 Series of low cost medical grade AC/DC desktop power adapters, which has both Class I and Class II models availability. The TMP65 Class II units, furnished with an IEC 320/C8 AC inlet without a ground pin, are
Earlier this month, NJIT formalized an agreement with Chinese partners that will advance the university's research on thin-film solar cells, an alternative energy technology with the potential to make buildings and other infrastructure substantially more energy-efficient.
Four of the six instruments that will fly on the first Geostationary Operational Environmental Satellite R-Series (GOES-R) were delivered to Lockheed Martin in Denver for integration onto the spacecraft bus this month. This marks the beginning of a new phase in the development of the GOES-R satellite scheduled for launch in early 2016.
The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, will be part of a national effort, announced today by President Barack Obama, which could lead to more fuel-efficient cars and decreased costs for ships and aircraft. Suresh Babu and a team of faculty will help lead UT's research effort in the $140 million Detroit-based institute....
Scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Ames Laboratory are revealing the mysteries of new materials using ultra-fast laser spectroscopy, similar to high-speed photography where many quick images reveal subtle movements and changes inside the materials. Seeing these dynamics is one emerging strategy to better understanding how new materials work, so that we can use them to enable new energy technologies.
A research team at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis has helped determine the science behind how canines locate explosives. The study found the dogs react best to the actual explosive, calling into question the use of products designed to mimic the odor of C-4 for training purposes.
The ability to duplicate an experiment and its results is a central tenet of the scientific method, but recent research has shown an alarming number of peer-reviewed papers are irreproducible. A team of math and statistics professors has proposed a way to address one root of that problem by teaching reproducibility to aspiring scientists, using software that makes the concept feel logical rather than cumbersome.
Premier Magnetics (Lake Forest, CA) announces its POL-LYT Series of switch-mode transformers designed to complement Power Integrations’ LYTSwitch family of integrated off-line LED driver/controller ICs. Features include a universal input range of 90 to 265 Vac.
NIC Components (Melville, NY) is pleased to announce the addition of NFVC_H series of surface-mount chip fuses to its expanded offering of circuit protection products. The newly released NFVC_H series feature high inrush withstanding performance in 6125 (2410) case size.
Schaefer (Hopkinton, MA) unveils the new PowerStack Power System, which is a 400KW to +10MW highly reliable, fully-customizable “built-to-project” Power Conversion building block. This is a ruggedized design for harsh environments and utilizing the newest state-of-the-art insulated-gate bipolar transistor (IGBT).
