The way in which radio spectrum is currently allocated to different wireless technologies can lead to gross inefficiencies. In some regions, for instance, the frequencies used by cellphones can be desperately congested, while large swaths of the broadcast-television spectrum stand idle.
This year's event mostly consisted of upgrades to existing Google services that have already become daily habits for millions of people — one of Page's main goals. The new features assume most people want more help managing their lives from Google's brainy engineers and the sprawling data centers that house its millions of computers around the world.
Researchers from North Carolina State University have developed a software algorithm that detects and isolates cyber-attacks on networked control systems – which are used to coordinate transportation, power and other infrastructure across the United States.
The atom-sized world of carbon nanotubes holds great promise for a future demanding smaller and faster electronic components. Nanotubes are stronger than steel and smaller than any element of silicon-based electronics—the ubiquitous component of today's electrical devices—and have better conductivity, which means they can potentially process information faster while using less energy.
Google is expected to use its annual software developers' conference to showcase the latest mobile devices running on its Android software, while also unveiling other features in its evolving product line-up. The gathering, scheduled to begin Wednesday morning in San Francisco, provides Google Inc. with an opportunity to flex its technological muscle in front of a sold-out audience...
Past attempts of providing this functionality have not been successful due to the difficulty with far-field voice input processing (FFVIP). When a microphone is close to the mouth of the individual talking, the quality of the audio tends to be better and louder than the surrounding noise.
WAGO Corporation’s High-Current 789 Series DC-DC Converters power I/O within mobile manufacturing, remote energy production, and material handling applications. The 789 Series features a width of 17.5 mm and up to 90% efficiency (24 VDC in, full load).
Global Lighting Technologies (GLT) has introduced new high-brightness backlight solutions for high-efficiency sunlight-readable displays. The new high brightness light guides feature sizes of 5-, 7-, 9- and 12-inch diagonal.
Anderson Power Products (APP) has announced a new addition to the SB connector family with the release of their new 2 pole SB 2/0 connector. The SB 2/0 offers larger wire capability and increased current carrying capability over the similar sized SB 175 connector.
NEL Frequency Controls, Inc. has announced the release of a new reduced height profile option for its ultra-low phase noise OCXO at 100 MHz. The O-CIH-X Series features availability with 0.4’’ (10.2 mm) height profile in addition to the 0.5” (12.7 mm) original model.
DELO Industrial Adhesives’ new light curing DELO-KATIOBOND product lineup has been engineered specifically for exceptionally fast seal-bonding functions in the production of microelectronics including micro switches widely used in the automobile industry.
Most car drivers have had the experience of hearing a buzzing, squeaky, or rattling sound while driving but not being able to figure out where the noise is coming from. The problem could be simple, requiring a quick fix, or could be serious enough to bring a car to a mechanic
This week on WDD’s HotSpot, Casetop from Livi Design is a netbook-like combo that uses a smartphone for its computing power; the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign has created new microbatteries, sought to achieve a more favorable balance between energy and density; and SM Instrument Company and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology have created a sound camera, the SeeSV-S205.
A new joint innovation by the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) and the University of Cambridge could pave the way for redefining the ampere in terms of fundamental constants of physics. The world's first graphene single-electron pump (SEP), described in a paper in Nature Nanotechnology, provides the speed of electron flow needed to create a new standard for electrical current based on electron charge.
The electrodes, called anodes and cathodes, are the building blocks of powerful battery arrays like those used in electric and hybrid vehicles. They are copper on one side and coated with a black compound to store lithium on the other. Lithium ions travel from the anode to the cathode while the battery is being charged and in the reverse direction when discharging energy.
Today on Engineering Newswire, brought to you by Pivot Point, the leading designer and manufacturer of non-threaded fastener solutions, we're improving Artificial Intelligence with sensors, flying robotic bees, making hypersonic history, and getting ready to launch GOES-R.
AutomationDirect’s has expanded its ultrasonic sensor line to include additional 18 and 30 mm round plastic DC models that are available with discrete or analog outputs. The sensors feature LED status indicators and a push-button teach feature for configuration of normally-open and normally-closed states for DC output models and for adjustable sensitivity on analog output models.
Stackpole’s RC series is an axial leaded carbon composition technology available in ¼, ½, and 1 W power ratings. Additional features include a dense carbon slug element that handles high-energy surges, availability in values from to 1 Ω to 22 MΩ and tolerances of 5% and 10%.
