ELECTRONICS: Cree Inc.’s new GaN HEMT MMIC power amplifier, the CMPA0060025F, offers 25W output power over an instantaneous bandwidth of 20 MHz to 6 GHz. This product is ideal for military and ISM (industrial, scientific and medical) applications that require high power and broadband amplification up to 6 GHz. The CMPA0060025F is packaged within a 0.25 sq inch footprint, making it one of the smallest high-power amplifiers covering this bandwidth available in the marketplace. The MMIC can operate with supply voltages up to 50V and typically has 12 dB of power gain.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
