ELECTRONICS: Molex Incorporated announced the release of two additions to its Mini-Fit product line. Both products meet the high-current and high-density standards found in the Mini-Fit family and are ideal for a wide range of industries and applications including telecommunications, medical, industrial equipment, personal computers and power supplies. Other product details include:
Mini-Fit Plus HCSä (High Current System) Terminal: The patented Mini-Fit Plus HCS terminals allow customers to increase their current loads by an additional 3.0A per circuit. With a unique, elliptical contact dimple designed to increase durability and gold plate terminals, which allow for an increased number of mating cycles and are suitable for hot-pluggable applications, this family extension allows for increased performance, without changing footprint layout or existing tooling. These terminals are designed to be used with all existing Mini-Fit receptacle housings.
The Mini-Fit RTCä (Reflow Temperature Compatible) Headers: Designed with a high-temperature LCP housing, Mini-Fit RTC headers can withstand solder-reflow temperatures of up to 265C, guaranteeing compatibility with lead-free reflow processes. The headers mate with standard Mini-Fit receptacles and incorporate a standard polarization design. They also share the same design features with the rest of the Mini-Fit family, ensuring compatibility and reliability.
The new products also share other core attributes of the Mini-Fit family including being UL recognized, CSA approved, TUV licensed, lead-free and RoHS compliant.
Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
A recent example of a major CAE revamp is MSC Apex, released last month by MSC Software Corp. In a discussion with Design News, MSC executives noted that its next-generation platform is designed to substantially reduce CAE modeling and process time, “in some cases from weeks down to hours.”
The Thames Deckway would run for eight miles close to the river’s edge, rising and falling slightly with the tidal cycle. It will generate its own energy from a series of devices that will line the pathway and use a combination of sources to make the path self-sustaining.
