ELECTRONICS: With the introduction of a new selection of rugged, 1/3N Lithium Battery Holders for surface or through-hole mounting, Keystone Electronics Corp. continues to expand the availability of premium battery holders. These new battery holders are supplied with durable, heat-resistant, UL 94V-0- rated nylon housings ideal for all soldering and reflow operations. The SMT version (Catalog #498) features gold-plated phosphor bronze contacts. The THM version (Catalog #497) incorporates tin-plated phosphor bronze contacts and the heat-resistant nylon housings. The THM types mount directly on PCBs, securely positioned during wave soldering and placement. Both holders accept 1/3N 3-V Cell Lithium batteries from major manufacturers and are part of the company’s continuing growth selection of battery hardware specialties including contacts, holders, retainers and straps in a variety of materials for coin cell, button cell and cylindrical batteries. In addition to a broad line of quality interconnects, hardware and components, the firm maintains an application engineering group which is supported by expert stamping, machining and assembly operations.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
