Optical bonding has been around in different capacities for many years and has recently gained new notoriety for the many benefits it brings to projective capacitive (PCAP) touch panel displays. Optically bonded displays, touch and otherwise, have increased in demand...
James Cameron is bestowing 3D upon us, whether we want it or not. Cameron has partnered with “Avatar” cameraman Vince Pace to form a venture aimed at “driving the widespread adoption of 3D technology in episodic television, sports and advertising.”
In this episode we talk to Robert Van Horn, Michael Schulte, and Jonathan Dokuchitz of Custom Electronics Inc. (CEI) about their launch of a new power division to address advanced power distribution applications.
Systems used in electronic warfare (EW) and radar applications are essential parts of the strategic environment for threats on the ground, at sea and in the air. Since threats require rapid and shifting tactical responses, the design flexibility provided by programmable logic is essential in military hardware.
Today almost all portable devices are powered by low-voltage batteries. However, these same devices must power some circuits -- like LEDs -- that require higher supply voltages. There is therefore a clear need for boost voltage conversion.
Next generation high performance server, storage and communication system CPU’s, GPU’s and DDR memory have increasingly challenging power management requirements of up to 300A load currents at very low voltages of around 1V.
3M announces the launch of its newly formed company 3M AST Ltd., based in Cheonan, Korea, which will provide advanced sputtering and plating services, materials and manufacturing capabilities for flexible circuits for the mobile hand-held, touch-screen panel and display markets.
