This training module from Digi-Key and TT Electronics/Optek Technology provides guidance on managing junction temperature of high-power visible LEDs, including ways to remove heat.
When HDMI version 1.4 was publicly released in October 2009, it included a number of new features. Most of the new features are barely moving the needle on the consumer electronics industry's Richter scale. But one new HDMI 1.4 feature -- the implementation of 3D video mode -- is about to buckle the pavement of the status quo.
VI Systems GmbH has released the first circular chip arrays of its vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) designed for wire- and flip-chip bonding.
Thermal imaging systems manufacturer Flir Systems Inc. announced Monday that it will acquire sensor maker ICx Technologies Inc. for approximately $274 million.
Researchers have overcome a fundamental obstacle in using new "metamaterials" for radical advances in optical technologies, including ultrapowerful microscopes and computers and a possible invisibility cloak.
Watlow’s new “Simply the Best Heating Solutions” product catalog includes descriptions and specifications for the full line of Watlow’s electric industrial heaters to fit a wide scope of applications and needs.

A newly authored white paper from DYMAX called “LED Curing of Light-Curable Materials – Unraveling the Myths and Realities” reviews common misconceptions and realities about LED curing technology.
Tech9’s three amp DC to DC converter provides more power (up to 36 volt-amps) than other models in the company’s line of power converters. The buck-boost converters accept inputs ranging from 6 to 70 V with constant output.
The subminiature series VLC856 compression load cells are small in size with diameters from 0.38 in. and heights of only 0.13 in.
The PS15 rotary position sensor offers a surface mountable solution for detecting changes in angle and position and converting them into a highly reliable voltage output. It can be processed by standard automated placement equipment and reflow (or lead-free reflow) soldered.
Applimotion’s UTS Series direct drive slotless motors now cover 29 to 240 mm diameters with thin radial length, prefect for direct drive positioning or high speed spindle applications.
For years, radio broadcasters and artists have duked it out over performance rights. Enter the highly-contentious Performance Rights Act, which would expand copyright law to include all public performances of copyrighted sound recordings. And it’s gotten even wilder: an amendment would mandate that all mobile phones contain FM radio chips.
Power Integrations introduced the SENZero family of ICs that disconnect sense resistors from high-voltage rails during standby or remote-off conditions.
A follow on from some of the recent blogs that have involved basic thermal heatsink calculation. This time around Dave takes you though the basic theory of thermal design and how heatsink calculations work. Then there are some real world temperature measurements to see how close to the...
Dave takes you though the basic theory of thermal design and how heatsink calculations work. Then there are some real world temperature measurements to see how close to the theory we get. How do you read a heatsink thermal response graph? What is emissivity? It's all here in thermal design 101.
MPD’s AS212-C automotive socket features weather and vibration resistance in a durable nylon housing. The socket touts easy with the inclusion of a right angle bezel for placement under a panel, dashboard or cabinet. Also included are
The critical systems our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines use to jam radio-controlled improvised explosive devices (IEDs) rely on the RF cables designed and manufactured at the MegaPhase facility in Stroudsburg, PA.
Semtech Corp. announced the SC442, a 10-channel white LED driver with an integrated 3A boost power switch. The device is capable of driving up to 120 LEDs at up to 30 mA per channel and is packaged in a low-profile 4 mm x 4 mm x0.6 mm, 28-pin MLPQ package. The SC442 operates
Eraser’s K8 Series Rotary Blade Wire Strippers (Models K8A and K8B) are precision rotary wire strippers capable of processing round, extruded, built-up (solid and stranded), magnet, enamel, and film insulated wires and coaxial cables.
A variety of custom options can be specified to equip Pittman brush-commutated and brushless DC motors with tailored solutions to satisfy particular application demands.
austriamicrosystems has announced the 30-mW AS3560 and AS3561 Stereo Headphone Amplifiers, that continuously adjust the supply rails in response to the input signal, thus drastically minimizing power consumption.
As touchscreens with gesture-based interfaces have become nearly standard in the mobile phone segment, many people are waiting impatiently for the technology to make its way into the automotive market.
As reported by Defense Talk, Israel has agreed to purchase 20 F-35 Joint Strike Fighters in a deal worth an estimated 2.75 billion dollars. At $96 million a piece, this would be the most expensive weapons deal ever signed by Israel. As the Swiss Army Knife of fighter jets, and the bulwark of the free world for the next 40 years (not to sound hyperbolic)...
