ELECTRONICS: FCI’s High Power Card Edge (HPCETM) connector is a next generation power card edge connector intended for applications demanding low power loss and high linear current density. The connector is rated to 9A per power contact beam (with multiple power contacts fully energized) without exceeding a 30C temperature rise in still air. The HPCE connector has a low profile height (<= 7.50 mm) and is based on very cost-effective and highly reliable stamped-and-formed power contact technology.
HPCE connectors are available with power and signal contacts integrated into a single molded housing for power distribution and power control. The flexible, modular tooling approach used for the HPCE connector makes the product highly configurable in terms of the number and placement of the power and signal contacts for custom power needs.The HPCE connector features a low profile height for increased system airflow and heat dissipation, low contact resistance characteristics, significantly increased linear current density, a robust housing with touch-proof safety features and a polarization option to ensure proper mating. Vertical and right-angle options are available to accommodate various system architectures.
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And they’re doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two men’s design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.
In order to keep an enterprise truly safe from hackers, cyber security has to go all the way down to the device level. Icon Labs is making the point that security has to be built into device components.
Three days after NASA's MAVEN probe reached Mars, India's Mangalyaan probe went into orbit around the red planet. India's first interplanetary mission, and the first successful Mars probe launched by an Asian nation, has a total project cost of nearly $600 million less than MAVEN's.
Plant user interfaces are beginning to incorporate the consumer features such as swipe, double tap, and pinch. The driver is Millennials who expect plant equipment to match the sophistication of the smartphone.
