ELECTRONICS: Murata Power Solutions has added a 3A output current surface mount series to its family of OkamiTM non-isolated, DOSA compliant pinout, point-of-load (PoL) DC/DC converters. The OKI-T/3-W40 series is ideal for use 24V dc input range applications that require a low voltage dc source for powering FPGAs and microprocessors.The 15W maximum output power OKI-T/3-W40 series has a wide input range of 16V dc to 40V dc and a programmable output voltage of 0.75V dc to 5.5V dc. The new modules achieve high power conversion efficiency with excellent derating performance. The OKI-T/3-W40 series is able to drive up to 1,000 µF ceramic capacitors making it easy for users to keep ripple and noise under control.
In addition to a wide voltage input range, the OKI-T/3-W40 series features on/off control, over-temperature, over-current, and under-voltage lock out (UVLO) protection.
Overall dimensions of the new modules are 0.82 inch (20.8 mm) x 0.47 inch (11.9 mm) x 0.34 inch (8.5 mm) high. Operating temperature range is -40C to 85C.
The new Okami OKI-T/3-W40 series of PoL dc/dc converters meets all standard UL/EN/IEC 60950-1 safety certifications and is compliant with RoHS-6 hazardous substance regulations.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
