National Semiconductor's LM4562 dual 34V high-fidelity audio operational amplifier is said to practically eliminate distortion, with total harmonic distortion plus noise of 0.00003 percent. That performance reportedly exceeds the performance of hand-built audiophile discrete methodologies, thus setting a new standard for sound quality in high-end professional and high-quality consumer audio markets. It has wide 55-MHz gain bandwidth, 10-MHz power bandwidth.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
