The MADR-009269 is a high-performance, single-channel CMOS Driver that is used to translate TTL control inputs into complementary gate control voltages for GaAs FET microwave switches and attenuators.
One of the joys of high school and college was receiving my blue essay book back from my teacher or professor. I couldn’t wait to read their comments in the columns of the book, especially when one of my essays was laden with jokes or sarcasm. But that was often a two-way street, as when my thesis statement would indicate my essay was going to go in a direction my instructor found dubious.
The DoD has finally backed down. And I applaud their decision. Following months of negative feedback, the DoD has officially scuttled the Distinguished Warfare Medal. The DWM — intended for drone operators — would’ve ranked ahead of the Bronze Star and Purple Heart (two combat decorations) in the order of precedence.
This term “nanny state” is an interesting one. It’s a term people throw out when they feel the government is infringing on their right to do something stupid. Frankly, if people could be trusted to police themselves, we wouldn’t have any laws at all.
A unique pair of eyeglasses developed by a Florida International Univ. (FIU) student team could revolutionize the lives of the blind, enabling them to walk into a library or a store, pick up any book or a can of soup and read it. The Eyetalk concept, initially conceived for a student competition in social entrepreneurship...
Lattice Semiconductor Corporation announced the Sensor Extender reference design that offers a low-cost approach to remotely locate image sensors up to eight meters away from the image signal processor (ISP) and transmit and receive video signals at resolutions that range up to 720p60 and 1080p30.
Crystek’s new CVCO55CXT-6400-6400 Coaxial Resonator Oscillator (CRO) is a coaxial-based VCO with an internal proprietary frequency doubler. The CVCO55CXT family’s frequency doubling, 2X fundamental technology reaches new performance levels of lower phase noise and much lower harmonics over the competition, while achieving lower current consumption in the process.
New Age Enclosures announces the release of a sleek new enclosure called “The Network Cube”. Identified as part number S-202010, the compact design measures just 2.0” in length, 2.0” in width, and 1.0” in height. The term Network Cube was chosen as its size is an ideal fit with coaxial plugs, Ethernet interface, and as an RF interface node.
Anderson Power Products announces the launch of the Saf-D-Grid Ultra Short Receptacle. The Saf-D-Grid connection system protects the user from DC arcing during mating and unmating. This innovative design enables the safe connection of DC electronic devices to a DC micro grid powered by high efficiency DC sources.
The series of constant current (CC) models of the high-voltage output (maximum output voltage up to 280VDC) with IP65/67 design for customers’ choices and with the efficiency up to 91%. This series are built-in two-stage PFC circuit to achieve the EU harmonic interference limited of lighting products requirements EN61000-3-2 Class C (load> 50 to 55%)....
The new infrared (IRED) Oslon black SFH 4716S from Osram Opto Semiconductors is one of the most powerful IREDs on the market, with an optical output of 1030 milliwatts (mW) and a beam angle of 150 degrees. It offers perfect illumination at a range of a few yards/meters and is ideal for gesture detection systems....
Larson Electronics Magnalight released the RFM-LED-7 roof mounted, pan and tilt LED light. Equipped with a handle and shaft suited for most standard vehicles, this roof mounted LED light can be positioned quickly and easily by operators from inside their vehicle.
Pickering Interfaces is expanding its range of low cost PXI multiplexers with the introduction of the 40-635, a single slot 3U PXI module providing a range of cost effective multiplexer (MUX) configurations for general purpose test applications.
Almost a year ago, Google launched its first broadband internet network, Google Fiber, in Kansas City (the Kansas and Missouri versions both), with speeds that severely overshadowed currently-available cable and DSL providers for a fraction of the cost. Consumers were able to sign up for 1 gigabit download speeds for a mere $70 a month.
Lumex announced the launch of its TitanBrite 2W UV LED. Available in a standard 405nm wavelength (purple), it is asserted to provide twice the power output of standard high power LEDs for a wide range of applications. The TitanBrite 2W UV LED (SML-LXL8047UVC Series) is said to
Global Connector Technology expands its industry leading range of vertical Micro USB2.0 connectors with the launch of two new B type products. An SMT type with cap allows fully automatic pick and place and a thru hole version with extended leads for use with .062” thick printed circuit boards.
We use computers for just about everything: communicating, avoiding long lines at the mall, and even ordering pizza. Thanks to new research, their presence is extending beyond our waking lives. It might sound like something out of science fiction, but scientists have discovered a way to use computers to read people’s minds.
Manufacturing floors don’t have Lego stations and pool tables — and yes, OSHA may take issue with throwing empty cans from the mini bar into the same bin as the scrap metal from the lathe, but that doesn’t mean that the industry has any fewer engineers flocking to it.
Electro-Mech’s new SW44884 potentiometer switch assembly offers both rotary and push-on functionality for maximum operation control, and features a clear light pipe shaft for front-panel illumination. The compact all-in-one unit saves valuable panel space in applications where there are tight design limitations.
Honeywell announced it has expanded its Limitless Wireless Solutions portfolio with the introduction of its new Limitless Non-Contact Switch WLS Series. The new WLS Series switch uses non-contact technology, enabling the device to actuate based on the presence or absence of magnets installed on a customer’s device – making it suitable for harsh operating environments.
