Intended for applications that must run large-scale programs rapidly while achieving high performance levels, the RX family of 32-bit microcontrollers (MCU) deliver a processing performance of 1.65 MIPS/MHz while consuming 0.03mA/MHz CPU core current.
Twenty years to the day that two electrochemists ignited controversy by announcing signs of cold fusion at an infamous press conference in Utah, a separate team has made a similar claim in the same US state. But this time, the evidence is being taken more seriously.
A startup founded by technology entrepreneur Steve Perlman says it has developed a technology to deliver video games on demand, an idea that threatens to eventually take consoles out of the equation. OnLive Inc., Perlman's Palo Alto, Calif.-based company, planned to unveil its technology Tuesday night at the Game Developers Conference in San Francisco.
Addressing a variety of harsh, mobile and mission-critical environments, the ESMexpress XM2 from MEN Micro is based on the Intel Core 2 Duo SP9300 processor with a clock frequency of up to 2.26 GHz.
The PIRELC, a high-output emitter from Cal Sensors can be used as a steady state or pulsed source of blackbody radiation for near-to-far infrared applications. The solid state emitter offers output of 4x10-2 watts/cm2 at 1 inch from filament. The emitter is intended for applications including industrial and medical gas analysis, process control
With multiple connections per phase, the Altech Power Distribution (APD) System allows up to 83 disconnects per meter. The APD system houses two conductors in plastic insulation suitable for voltages up to 600 VAC. Conductors with current ratings of 25 A, 63 A, or 80 A are available
Google Inc. Chief Executive Eric Schmidt and co-founders Larry Page and Sergey Brin maintained their traditional salaries of $1 last year even as the value of their combined stakes in the Internet search leader plunged by nearly $26 billion.
California's Mojave Desert may seem ideally suited for solar energy production, but concern over what several proposed projects might do to the aesthetics of the region and its tortoise population is setting up a potential clash between conservationists and companies seeking to develop renewable energy.
Containing two channels, a Simple RFID (RFID-S) slice from TURCK allows traditional discrete and analog I/O slices. The RFID-S slice does not require software for integration into a PLC system. The slice is compatible with BL20 non-programmable and programmable gateways, available for use on PROFIBUS-DP, PROFINET, DeviceNet, Modbus TCP/IP
Intended for applications such as audio, aircraft, medical and test equipment, a panel mount optical encoder from CUI has a 2-bit quadrature resolution. The C14 series has a 16 or 32 angle of throw position along with three shaft options that include 3.175 mm with slotted end, 6 mm diameter round, and 6.35 mm with D-cut
Supporting 10-Gigabit Ethernet, Metro, and Long Haul network applications, the Yahara family of Framer/Mapper/PHY Devices are intended to serve multi-service transport platforms and metro/long haul optical networks. The product family integrates 10GbE/10G Fibre Channel (FC)/8G FC/OC-192/STM-64 to OTU-2 mapping services, FracN clock synthesizing circuitry, Electronic Dispersion Compensation (EDC), GFEC/Enhanced FEC, and 10G serdes functions in a single device.
Appropriate for high volume, consumer products, the SKY13317-373LF pseudomorphic high electron mobility transistor (pHEMT) gallium arsenide (GaAs) symmetric SP3T switch operates at frequencies from 0.1 to 6.0 GHz.
Nextreme Thermal Solutions' OptoCooler HV14 high voltage, low current thin-film thermoelectric cooler (TEC) targeted at laser diode cooling for the telecommunications achieves a 60°C temperature difference between its cold and hot sides. This temperature difference, known as the ?T, reflects the ability of the device to pump heat efficiently. The OptoCooler HV14 is the first module
This past Friday brought news of a handful of indictments of elections officials in Kentucky who are alleged to have rigged elections in 2002, 2004, and 2006 by changing votes in electronic voting machines. Remarkably, the vote manipulation technique here was essentially an exploit of a simple UI design flaw, and involved no computer skills at all on the part of the alleged perpetrators.
Carbon-nanotube ribbons developed by researchers at the University of Texas at Dallas are stronger than steel, as stretchy as rubber, and as light as air. The ribbons, which are made of long, entangled 11-nanometer-thick nanotubes, can stretch to more than three times their normal width but are stiffer and stronger than steel or Mylar lengthways.
