Much has been written about the efficiency of Class D amplifiers, with figures of 90 percent or greater being routinely quoted. Such numbers might seem to suggest that the efficiency problem of audio amplifiers has been well-solved by conventional Class D. However, a closer look shows that this is far from the truth, with these amplifiers frequently seeing only single-digit percentage efficiencies, in real product usage conditions.

They say truth is stranger than fiction. Since 2008, Iraq’s military and police have utilized a divining rod (err, a “bomb detection device”) known as the ADE 651 to detect explosives. The ADE 651 has undoubtedly cost countless lives. Thus, justice was served when its creator, Jim McCormick, was arrested on suspicion of fraud.
A gun owner’s worst nightmare is his own weapon being turned against him. The Armatix “Smartgun” concept presents a novel solution—fingerprint identification, combined with biometric authentication (paired with a wristwatch) makes the weapon useless in the wrong hands.

National Semiconductor Corp. expanded its Webench Designer tools with the introduction of Webench Power Architect, which allows engineers to create, model and implement multiple-output, high-performance DC/DC power supplies for an entire system. According to the company, system designers can
The HPC series from Stackpole is a compact surface mount 5 watt resistor. The HPC Series incorporates four parallel thick film chip resistor elements to accommodate the higher power handling and the anodized heat sink allows for increased heat dissipation into the ambient air. These parallel resistance elements allow the HPC Series to withstand up to 2500 watts for pulse durations of 100 microseconds or less.
Maxon’s RE 50's "heart" is, as with all mechanically commutated maxon motor drives, the ironless rotor, which results in detent-free running and minimized mass inertia. The combination of a two-pole Neodymium permanent magnet with the patented maxon winding technology results in high torque and remarkable acceleration, says Maxon.
The New York attorney general warned Internet retailers Wednesday that they should stop funneling unsuspecting customers into "deceptive" Web discount clubs that have been accused of slamming people with hidden fees.
