MATERIALS: Fujipoly’s SARCON SPG-30A is a newly developed high viscosity, thermal interface silicone compound that is designed to efficiently transfer heat from a board-level source to a heat sink or heat spreader. This high-performance material offers a thermal conductivity of 3.2 W/m°K and provides superior handling characteristics compared to traditional thermal grease and potting materials. The product also offers a new thermal management option for electronic devices that operate at higher frequencies.SARCON® SPG-30A exhibits near-zero compression force and easily conforms to all component shapes and sizes. These characteristics make SPG-30A ideal for filling large gaps around fragile circuit board solder points without causing damage or loss in performance. The form stable thermal compound requires no heat curing, will not cause corrosion on metal surfaces, and maintains all initial properties across a wide temperature range (-40 to 150C).
Fujipoly’s new SARCON® SPG-30A material is available in 30cc tubes, 330cc cartridges and 10L pails.
Unlike industrial robots, which suffered a slight overall slump in 2012, service robots continue to be increasingly in demand. The majority are used for defense, such as unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs); and agriculture, such as milking robots.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
Design News and Digi-Key presents: Creating & Testing Your First RTOS Application Using MQX, a crash course that will look at defining a project, selecting a target processor, blocking code, defining tasks, completing code, and debugging.
These are the toys that inspired budding engineers to try out sublime designs, create miniature structures, and experiment with bizarre contraptions using sets that could be torn down and reconstructed over and over.
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.
