ELECTRONICS: MicroPower Direct’s MPM-03S series is a family of single output, 3W switching power supplies. These low-cost modules include a universal ac input, full safety approvals, robust filtering and miniature DIP packaging. Six standard models operate from a universal input of 85 to 264V ac; providing tightly regulated single outputs of 3.3, 5, 9, 12, 15 or 24V dc. Standard features include universal 85 to 264V ac inputs, filtering to EN55022, input/output isolation of 3,000V ac and very low leakage current. All models are protected for over temperature and short-circuit faults. The MPM-03S has a Class II input (IEC61140). This means it can be used without an earth ground connection. The series, which is RoHS compliant, is packaged in an ultra-miniature DIP package. Each model is specified for operation over the wide operating temperature range of -25 to 71C (ambient).
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And they’re doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two men’s design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.
In order to keep an enterprise truly safe from hackers, cyber security has to go all the way down to the device level. Icon Labs is making the point that security has to be built into device components.
Three days after NASA's MAVEN probe reached Mars, India's Mangalyaan probe went into orbit around the red planet. India's first interplanetary mission, and the first successful Mars probe launched by an Asian nation, has a total project cost of nearly $600 million less than MAVEN's.
