AVX Corporation has extended its line of high-reliability board-to-board compression connectors for commercial, medical, and harsh industrial applications with the addition of an ultra-low-profile power connector. Featuring gold-plated beryllium copper (BeCu) contacts that are insert-molded within the insulator for location and mechanical stability.
Gowanda Electronics has introduced the non-magnetic molded RF inductor series, SMG1812. The dimensions of the new SMG1812 are 4.8 (L) x 3.4 (W) x 3.5 mm (H). The overall size is more than 40% smaller than Gowanda’s SMG3013 series (the industry’s smallest non-magnetic molded RF inductor series until now).
Imagine having the power of RF analysis right at your fingertips. Now you can master your wireless with a new generation of handheld touch tablet RF Analyzers from Kaltman Creations, the leader in RF Solutions for Pro-Audio Wireless. The RF-Vue is offered in several versions, but the flag ship model is the RF-Vue T10.
Advanced Power Electronics has announced the APE2902, a high-efficiency VFM Step-up DC-DC converter for small, low-input voltage or battery powered systems with ultra-low quiescent supply current. Devices can operate from a positive input voltage between the start-up voltage and VOUT and convert it to a higher output voltage.
A robot can struggle to discover objects in its surroundings when it relies on computer vision alone. But by taking advantage of all of the information available to it — an object's location, size, shape and even whether it can be lifted — a robot can continually discover and refine its understanding of objects, say researchers at Carnegie Mellon University's Robotics Institute.
Researchers from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory and Stanford University have designed a low-cost, long-life battery that could enable solar and wind energy to become major suppliers to the electrical grid."For solar and wind power to be used in a significant way, we need a battery made of economical materials that are easy to scale and still efficient," said Yi Cui...
A team led by Professor Keon Jae Lee from the Department of Materials Science and Engineering at KAIST has developed in vivo silicon-based flexible large scale integrated circuits (LSI) for bio-medical wireless communication.
A handheld diagnostic device that Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH) investigators first developed to diagnose cancer has been adapted to rapidly diagnose tuberculosis (TB) and other important infectious bacteria. Two papers appearing in the journals Nature Communications and Nature Nanotechnology...
The European Commission said Monday that Motorola Mobility may have abused its dominant market position by denying Apple the right to use technology essential for mobile phones. It is a violation of European Union antitrust rules for a patent holder to deny use to technologically essential...
