Hi Stuart. The units of thermal resistance are: degrees Celsius/watt.

Thank you.

Thanks Ed, interesting post. 

What are the units of your measure of thermal resistance?

Best,

Stuart.

I agree! Very interesting article on how by integrating functions with existing parts, improved performance with a smaller footprint is possible: I thought it was fascinating how the article explains its example of products having fan blades that traditionally serve as a cooler are manufactured from magnetic materials that turn it into a rotor part of the motor as well. It seem like a natural combination of functions but it took someone visualizing how to integrate two functions using parts that have not served in that capacity in previous designs.

The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
Despite the astronomical benefits offered by 3D modeling, it is quite surprising that nearly 75% of the manufacturing industries still perform design operations using 2D CAD systems. What is the reason that keeps companies hesitant from adopting 3D technology?
Energy harvesting in particular seems to be moving at an accelerating pace. We now seem to be at a point where it is possible to run low-power systems primarily from energy harvesting sources. This is a big shift from even just a couple of years ago. Three key trends seem to have accelerated this dramatic shift.
ABI Research, a firm based in the UK that specializes in analyzing global connectivity and other emerging technologies, estimates there will be 40.9 billion active wirelessly interconnected “things” by 2020. The driving force is the usual suspect: the Internet of Things.
