Cordsets for Power Distribution
Features 10/22/2010 Post a comment Once considered unusable for industrial power distribution purposes, cordsets are now an accepted connector solution. Understanding why and how cordsets can be used is an important piece of knowledge for new industrial systems design.
USB Interface Simplifies Sensor Connection
Features 10/21/2010 Post a comment Industrial systems designers and integrators are learning that the familiar USB connection can simplify sensor platform architecture, reduce single-to-noise ratio issues, and ease sensor validation concerns.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
