The automotive sector continues to research ways of saving on traditional fuel and expanding alternatives. However, this change has not really moved forward due to the cost-prohibitive nature of new technology. Some of the most commonly discussed alternatives are battery-powered cars, namely electric vehicles, hybrid electric vehicles, and fuel cell vehicles.
While the phenomenon of superconductivity — in which some materials lose all resistance to electric currents at extremely low temperatures — has been known for more than a century, the temperature at which it occurs has remained too low for any practical applications
"People have often thought there's no upper bound for wind power—that it's one of the most scalable power sources," says Harvard applied physicist David Keith. After all, gusts and breezes don't seem likely to "run out" on a global scale in the way oil wells might run dry.
Identifying the mysterious mechanism underlying high-temperature superconductivity (HTS) remains one of the most important and tantalizing puzzles in physics. This remarkable phenomenon allows electric current to pass with perfect efficiency through materials chilled to subzero temperatures, and it may play an essential role in revolutionizing the entire electricity chain, from generation to transmission and grid-scale storage.
IXYS Integrated Circuits Division announced the immediate availability of the CPC1907B, +/-6ADC or 6Arms, AC Power SSR. The 1-Form-A CPC1907B is a 60V device with very low 0.06 Ohms of On-Resistance, offered in the new Power SOIC package.
Ironwood Electronics has recently introduced a new high performance QFP socket for 0.4mm pitch 128 pin QFP. The SG-QFE-7011 socket is designed for 14mm x 14mm x 1.6mm package size with 16mmx16mm lead tip to tip and operates at bandwidths up to 10 GHz with less than 1dB of insertion loss.

The Pentagon said it plans to continue using lithium-ion batteries on the new F-35 fighter jet despite problems with similar batteries that have grounded Boeing Co's new 787 airliner and are causing Airbus to rethink their use on its A350 jet. Joe DellaVedova, spokesman for the Pentagon's $396 billion F-35 program office...
NBC got its start in 1926 as the nation's first radio network. Its parent company, the Radio Corporation of America, figured people would buy radios if they had interesting things to listen to.NBC was the leading radio network in the early years, so powerful in those days that it had two networks:
General Electric is saying goodbye to 30 Rock - the building and the TV business born there. It's another step in GE's efforts to focus on less glamorous - but theoretically more profitable - ventures such as manufacturing medical imaging equipment, airplane engines and electrical generators.
