Solitron Series solid-state relays integrate a heat sink into their design and offer prolonged application life as there are no electromechanical parts due to direct copper-bonding semiconductor technology. The integrated heat sink is located on the front of the relay, making it impossible for wires connected to the relay to touch the heat sink. In addition, a much higher air capacity flows across the heat sink as they are not obstructed by other products or wiring trays.

Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
