Analog Devices' new 16-bit, high-speed analog-to-digital converters — the AD9460 and the AD9461 — focus on high-speed performance. With its 105 mega-samples-per-second speed and high dynamic range, the AD9460 is a candidate for instrumentation and medical systems, such as patient-monitoring and signal analysis devices. The AD9461, meanwhile, provides designers of instrumentation, military hardware and Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) systems with sampling rates up to 130 mega-samples per second, thus incorporating the ability to capture wider bandwidths of data. It also allows MRIs the ability to handle higher Tesla magnetic fields for superior imaging. For more information, click on http://rbi.ims.ca/4917-529.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
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.
