Making Digital Audio Measurements on Devices that have Incompatible Logic Levels
Agilent Demands on faster, smaller and more energy efficient digital audio devices have driven the need for devices from operating at the traditional 5 V to core voltage levels of well below 1 V. These low voltages and the variety of different voltages in use between devices can result in interface compatibility problems as well as measurement issues. Read this application note and learn more about the potential issues.

Designed for DC brushed and brushless motors with a power range up to 700 Watts.
White paper: Human-Like Bipedal Walking Robot
maxon precision motors In the world of robotics engineering there are two primary ways to view how a robot walks. Either the robot has to be quasi-statically stable at every moment of movement, or it can walk like a human in a more dynamic manner, where if it stopped half-way through a step it would fall over. The real trick has always been keeping a dynamically walking robot upright.
Product Catalog: The RE 30 EB 15 W maxon DC motor for fine rotary motions
maxon precision motors maxon windings and precious metal brushes generate higher torque. Haptic applications are well known in medical engineering, robotics, and aeronautics. For example: An active helicopter sidestick generates forces that provide tactile feedback to the pilot of a conventional system. Such applications require a special drive. maxon's ironless winding and precious metal commutation were predestined for these requirements.

White Paper: Comparison of Interface Pressure Measurement Options
Tekscan Measuring the forces between two surfaces is critical in solving key problems faced by engineers. This white paper examines three types of interface pressure sensing technology: load cells, pressure indicating film, and tactile pressure sensors. The strengths & limitations of each technology are analyzed, as well as their influence on a variety of real-world applications. These measurements provide engineers & researchers with valuable data to enhance product quality, design, and efficiency.
Materials Engineering Key to Heat Transfer in LED Assembly
Fabrico While LED modules can offer significant benefits over filament and fluorescent lighting, decreased brightness, changes in color, and shortened life can result, unless careful consideration is given to the selection and use of materials in dissipating the heat produced by the LEDs.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
