MOTION CONTROL: Crystek has introduced the CCK40 Series Cable Assembly, a new addition to their line of Low-Loss RF coaxial cable assemblies. Designed to operate up to 40GHz, the CCK40 features rugged stainless-steel solder-clamp construction and heavy duty strain reliefs. This low-loss cable provides an attenuation value of 0.90dB/ft. at 40GHz.The CCK40 Series cable offers shielding effectiveness of greater than -90dB with an operating temperature range of -55 to +85C (extended range of -55 to +125C available through special order).
The CCK40 Series cable offers a minimum bend radius of 1.0 inch and is available in-stock with 2.92mm (K) connectors. Crystek’s stocking distributors also support a large variety of other coaxial cable assemblies in a variety of configurations.
For decades, engineers have worked to combat erosion by developing high-strength alloys, composites, and surface coatings. However, in a new paper, a team at Jilin University in China turned to one of the most deadly animals in the world for inspiration -- the yellow fat-backed scorpion.
Green energy is being billed as a way to make communities that are energy deprived more self-sustaining. So it makes sense to use natural materials to create devices that harvest this type of energy. That’s the idea behind a hybrid wind/solar energy harvester made of bamboo that’s been developed by UVM researchers.
Anyone who’s ever moved files from a hard drive to a computer has sat patiently waiting for the transfer to complete. But what if this process could be done wirelessly, without having to connect devices with cables, and in seconds?
