This video with Jamie Pederson & co. shows the destructive force required to damage both a polycarbonate and aluminum box manufactured by Rose+Bopla. It's more than you would expect.
This month's Tinker's Toolbox podcast revisits our discussion on standards and regulations and their impact on the design engineer. Topics include: when standards may or may not be needed, the role of industry and government in creating them, time and cost issues...
Schurter adds a new standard DC filter series FMER SOL designed for use on the DC side of the inverter in photovoltaic systems and other DC systems. MPP (maximum power point) trackers generate disturbances into both the grid’s AC power line...
ConTech, a Division of Calex, announces the “SMW” Series of DC/DC converters. The SMW Series offers 5 Watts of fully regulated output power with an industry standard SMT footprint. Total board space required for this package is 1.31 x 1.01x .40 “.
Semtech Corp. today announced the SX1233, a programmable ISM-band transceiver that combines the world’s highest bit rate (600 kbps) with a world-class link budget (137 dB), ultra-low power consumption, excellent ACR (adjacent channel rejection) and blocking immunity.
Maxim Integrated Products introduces the MAX9613/MAX9615, low-power, precision operational amplifiers with rail-to-rail I/O. These op amps have a unique self-calibration feature that allows offset correction or nulling at any time or temperature.
Sauro presents the MPS and MPP series that offer a high connection capacity. The MPS series can accept a wire section up to 16 mm² (6 AWG), and consequently has a UL certified current of 60°. The MPP series can accept a wire section up to 35 mm² (2 AWG), and consequently has a UL certified current of 108A.
B&K Precision has launched a new series of pulse generators. Models 4033 and 4034 are high performance, programmable pulse generators, delivering clean and accurate pulses for testing digital circuits and systems based on TTL, CMOS, or ECL logic families.
Power-One's PFE1100 1100W front-end AC-DC power supply provides a 12VDC output with 5V or 3.3V pin-selectable standby. Exceeding CSCI Platinum targets, the new PFE1100 product line is presented as having the world’s lowest power dissipation.
Atego announced the release of Aonix Perc Ultra SMP 5.4 with new support for concurrent multi-processor Garbage Collection (GC) technology atop ARM multi-core processors.
The silicon chip business went from nothing to approaching $200 billion market in size in twenty years. Now we have the beginning of a market that will outpace even that to reach $200 billion or so in only twenty years. It is printed electronics.
Phihong has developed the smallest low-cost USB charger available, at just 42 x 43 x 21 mm and weighing 80 grams. Designated the PSM03K, the 2.75W adapter is compliant with the new ENERGY STAR EPS version 2.0 requirements...
