Designed especially for miniature electronics such as watches, hearing aids, calculators, keyless door entry fob’s, memory backup, small toys and other applications, these new retainers are engineered with reliable spring tension to assure low contact resistance while firmly securing the battery within the retainer.
This new surface mount retainer accepts all ML414 micro Lithium batteries from all major manufacturers and is compatible with all soldering and reflow operations. Retainers are manufactured of Phosphor Bronze with solder tails located outside of retainer body which facilitates visual inspection of the solder joints.
These retainers are available with gold plating to accommodate both lead free and low temperature reflow soldering. Request (Catalog#2994) in bulk or on tape and reel (Catalog #2994TR). Retainers are compatible with most vacuum and mechanical pick and place assembly systems.
Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
