It's the end of the line for Roadrunner, a first-of-its-kind collection of processors that once reigned as the world's fastest supercomputer. The $121 million supercomputer, housed at one of the nation's premier nuclear weapons research laboratories in northern New Mexico, will be decommissioned Sunday.
Fujipoly’s Zebra® Gold Series 8000B is a high performance, low resistance connector that is capable of transferring both data and power between parallel components or circuit boards. This interconnect device is constructed from a low durometer silicone core that is covered with 133 parallel rows of flat, gold-plated wires per inch.
There’s been a lot of chatter in the news (and here on ECN) about drones. These arguments usually come down to questions about ethics, military power and tangentially the military industrial complex, and the relationship of the US with various other countries. It’s rare to see drones talked about in any context outside of military.
Han GND (Han-Ground) from HARTING is presented as a solution for potential equalization. This new connector series makes it possible to create grounding systems with pluggable connections. This single-pole, slim design connector with a robust
