MOTION CONTROL: AutomationDirect now offers Cat5e Ethernet patch cables in eight colors and three foot to 50 foot lengths. The straight and crossover patch cables support up to 1000 Mbps, and are designed to reduce the effects of electromagnetic interference by incorporating a single metal foil shield which wraps around the entire set of four twisted shielded pairs. The robust RJ45 connectors are also shielded against electrical interference. Our 350 MHz cables exceed all Cat5e TIA/EIA standards, and drastically reduce both impedance and structural return loss (SRL) when compared to standard 100 MHz cables. With prices starting at $5.00, these cables help create solid, reliable Ethernet networks with any application.
It won't be too much longer and hardware design, as we used to know it, will be remembered alongside the slide rule and the Karnaugh map. You will need to move beyond those familiar bits and bytes into the new world of software centric design.
People who want to take advantage of solar energy in their homes no longer need to install a bolt-on solar-panel system atop their houses -- they can integrate solar-energy-harvesting shingles directing into an existing or new roof instead.
Kaspersky Labs indicated at its February meeting that cyber attacks are far more sophisticated than previous thought. It turns out even air-gapping (disconnecting computers from the Internet to protect against cyber intrusion) isn’t a foolproof way to avoid getting hacked. And Kaspersky implied the NSA is the smartest attacker.
