Rochester Electronics has continued to manufacture AMD’s 80C188 commercial grade 16-Bit microcontrollers in a 68-pin PLCC package. Utilizing Rochester’s eight-million AMD80C188 die, the 80C188 is available in any original AMD package and speed option. Rochester can also manufacture a lead-free version, which is ideal for newer applications that require modern environmental standards including RoHS.
Transducers USA has introduced their new piezo ceramic MLCT (Multilayer Ceramic Transmitter) series. Its unique simple acoustic multi-layer ceramic construction produces a high output of 80 Db with only 16V low driving voltage. Its milliwatt of power consumption and high conversion efficiency lead to an even broader range of applications.With an overall size of 30 X 20 X 1.5mm, the series is ideal for flat and narrow spaces.
Intelliconnect (Europe) Ltd. announced a complete range push-pull connectors that rival screw and locking types. The company states they offer panel designers space savings since there is no need for a coupling-tool or locking by hand and fast and easy mating and un-mating for
Remote presence robots are used in intensive care units (ICUs) to help critical care physicians supplement on-site patient visits and maintain more frequent patient interactions
While much of the world was celebrating the international cooperation that led to last week's breakthrough in identifying the existence of the Higgs boson particle, many in India were smarting over what they saw as a slight against one of their greatest scientists.
Nuvoton Technology Corp. introduced the ISD2360, the company’s first ChipCorder device with three-channel mixing playback and general-purpose input/output (GPIO) parallel processing. Desirable for automotive, medical-alert, instrumentation and point-of-purchase applications, the IC enables
Teseq has introduced a new magnetic field coil that generates fields up to 1200 A/m during magnetic field testing.
Texas Instruments Inc. introduced the first in a family of multi-chemistry, multi-cell battery management gas gauge circuits with TI’s proprietary Impedance Track capacity measurement technology.
ICP DAS USA, Inc. introduced I-7540D-WF, its CAN to Wi-Fi Converter, which will allow CAN bus devices to communicate with other CAN bus devices over wireless Wi-Fi networks.
A group of US researchers has produced a robotic set of legs which they believe is the first to fully model walking in a biologically accurate manner.
Using piezoelectric materials, researchers have replicated the muscle motion of the human eye to control camera systems in a way designed to improve the operation of robots. This new muscle-like action could help make robotic tools safer and more effective for MRI-guided surgery and robotic rehabilitation.
It's a challenge that's long been one of the holy grails of quantum computing: How to create quantum bits, or qubits – the key building blocks of quantum computers - that exist in a solid-state system at room temperature. Most current systems, by comparison, rely on complex and expensive equipment designed to trap a single atom or electron in a vacuum then cool the entire system to close to absolute zero.
Rising energy costs and increasing support for clean, renewable energy sources has made solar power a growth industry. Solar panels directly generate power by converting sunlight to electricity with no moving parts, zero emissions, and little to no maintenance.
Have you ever had an afternoon—possibly every afternoon—where you brain simply refuses to focus on the task at hand? A to-do item that should take a moment takes an hour, an in-depth task is put off till tomorrow and you’re receiving nagging emails from annoyed co-workers?
ZMD AG announces a new addition to its LED driver family, the ZSLS7025. As a global supplier of analog and mixed-signal solutions for automotive, industrial, medical, information technology and consumer applications, ZMDI introduces the ZSLS7025, a step-up (boost) converter, for high-brightness LED lighting. It is well suited for many consumer, industrial and after-market automotive applications. The ZSLS7025 is optimal for driving multiple white LEDs connected in series from a low voltage supply.
Consumers want to improve the functionality offered by sports and fitness apps through the use of sensors. A recent study conducted by IMS Research, a company recently acquired by IHS Inc. (NYSE:IHS), found that 62.3 percent of respondents with a smartphone interested in sports and fitness applications and who exercised at least once week, were prepared to purchase sensors to monitor performance and enhance the sports and fitness application on their smartphone.
A new study suggests that extra time in the womb results in more brain development. Full-term newborns born later than 38 weeks perhaps have better scores on academic tests.
Government health experts said Thursday there are few reasons to continue using metal-on-metal hip implants, amid growing evidence that the devices can break down early and expose patients to dangerous metallic particles.
AMD introduced the latest entry to the AMD Embedded G-Series processor family with the AMD Embedded G-T16R Accelerated Processing Unit (APU). The AMD G-T16R is targeted at very low power, small form factor and cost-sensitive embedded designs that require a combination of x86 compatibility and graphics. The optimized design of the AMD Embedded G-T16R sips power, with power consumption of just 2.3 watts[iv] on average or 4.5 watts thermal design power (TDP).
Scientists in the United States have developed a paint that can store and deliver electrical power just like a battery.
Google helped create a world brimming with digital distractions for people spending more of their lives tethered to the Internet. It's a phenomenon that seems unlikely to change so Google is working on a way to search for information, read text messages, watch online video and post photos on social networks without having to fumble around with a hand-held device.
IMS Research projects that by 2016, wireless-enabled consumer medical devices will use Bluetooth Smart technology the most.
