ELECTRONICS: MEC introduced its illuminated Navimec with soft touch finish. The Navimec is a switch assembly that provides joystick functionality, making it possible to navigate up/down/left/right and also have a center function that can be used as an enter key.
The illuminated Navimec is designed for PCB mounting in combination with MEC Illumec Switches and is available in surface mount and through hole terminations. The switches are rated for 10 million operations and are sealed to IP67. The keycaps are specifically designed with a hi-tech look and a soft touch finish obtained with an elastomeric coating.
The illuminated Navimec is ideal for operating directional functions, such as navigating through menus in all types of test and measurement, medical, broadcast, pro-audio and other professional equipment.
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
