Newly UL- and Semko-approved is the dc and ac single line Feedthru filters from Spectrum Control Inc. (www.spectrumcontrol.com). Rated at 10-300A and intended for 0-400 Hz applications, these filters have C and Pi configurations with the dc models coming with Class Y4 capacitors while the ac models offer Class Y2 or Class Y4 capacitors. In addition, the bolt-in style with D-shaped bushing make installation easy.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
