The DAC series miniature dielectric antenna element is for 2.4-GHz wireless LAN systems. The flat-type antenna provides:
- Vertical polarization reception
- Low profile (6-mm max)
- Omni-directional in azimuth
- Low-interference design
- Central feeding point terminal
- Wide bandwidth
- Light weight
A layer of conductive film on the wall of the substrate's though hole connects the radiation electrode on the substrate's top surface with the ground electrode on the bottom. A conductive pin abutting the electrode's 50V impedance matching point feeds the inner conductor of a coaxial cable, while the ground electrode connects to the outer coaxial-cable conductor.

Are they robots or androids? We're not exactly sure. Each talking, gesturing Geminoid looks exactly like a real individual, starting with their creator, professor Hiroshi Ishiguro of Osaka University in Japan.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
