Rack and pinion technology is commonly used in linear motion systems to convert rotary motion into linear motion. Providing versatile operation, rack and pinion systems can be employed in a variety of motion control applications, ranging from cutting systems to medical and robotics applications. A traditional rack and pinion system is
Semtech announced the latest device in its buck regulator platform. The new SC286 is the world’s smallest 4A, dual-channel regulator for point-of-load (POL) applications.
In this episode we talk to Markus Willems, Senior Product Marketing Manager of System-Level Solutions at Synopsys. In addition to talking about the wireless industry and the issues that face design engineers we talk about their collaboration with Rohde & Schwarz to accelerate LTE and LTE-Advanced wireless system design and verification.
Christmas came early for me this year—Avante Garde Gifts was kind enough to send over a review copy of their latest novelty mouse, the BMW Mini Cooper. Unfortunately, I can’t recommend the Mini Coop. While a sharp-looking piece, it’s wholly unsuitable for extended web surfing.
u-blox announces the upgrade of its latest GPS receiver platform u-blox 6. The upgrade gives customers access to many new features and benefits such as improved sensitivity, significantly lower power consumption, improved anti-jamming performance, jamming detection and shorter Time To First Fix (TTFF).
Fluke Corporation introduced its ScopeMeter 190 Series II two-channel handheld portable oscilloscopes. They combine the characteristics of a two-channel oscilloscope with a
AVX Corporation has developed an 0603 case size surface mount capacitor capable of supporting frequencies from 700 MHz to well above 5 GHz.
Atmel Corporation today announced early sampling of its 32-bit ARM Cortex -M3-based microcontrollers (MCUs) with 1MB embedded Flash and 128KB SRAM. The new Atmel SAM3S16 Cortex-M3 MCU offers high performance, low power and large memory density...
