ELECTRONICS: Fox Electronics recently released the new compact 3.3-volt F32K 32.768 kHz oscillator series as an expansion to its HCMOS oscillator offerings. The F32K oscillators draw a mere 1.5 µA of current and 250 nA of standby current, making them ideal for a wide variety of applications including real time clocks (RTCs), microcontroller sub clocks, sleep mode clocks and watchdog timer clocks.The new HCMOS oscillators come in a small 3.2 x 2.5 mm package and offer stabilities of +10 ppm to -90 ppm across a temperature range of -10 to 70C and +10 ppm to -140 ppm across -40 to 85C.
Fox’s new RoHS-compliant SMD oscillators feature a usable supply voltage of 1.5 to 5.5V (3.3V ±10 percent standard). Operating temperature is -40 to 85C and storage temperature is -55 to 125C. At 25C, frequency tolerance is +5 ±20 ppm. The HCMOS oscillators feature a gold termination finish.
Pricing for a F32K-327 oscillator is $1.31 in quantities of 50,000. Delivery is eight weeks ARO.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
