Lamerholm Electronics RD317 Micro ShockLog (http://rbi.ims.ca/4927-546). Semiconductor accelerometer technology makes this programmable, tri-axial shock recorder light weight and affordable for tracking products in production, transit or storage. The 85 x 85 x 50 mm unit weighs only 0.3 kg and has maximum operating range options of 10 and 100g. The sensor’s low-power requirements and the unit’s low power mode (until a wake-up threshold is exceeded) allow it to record information for as much as nine months from a single AA battery. Wake-up and alarm threshold are programmable from 10 to 95 percent of full scale. Wake-up time is 1.5 msec.
The fun factor continues to draw developers to Linux. This open-source system continues to succeed in the market and in the hearts and minds of developers. Design News will delve into this territory with next week's Continuing Education Class titled, “Introduction to Linux Device Drivers.”
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
