The industry's smallest converter of its type, the MAX8614 is adjustable with external resistors, for use in digital still cameras, cell phone cameras, and OLED display power. It has outputs up to 24V positive and -10V negative with 100 mA output current. It is flexible and easy to design in due to integrated capabilities. It eliminates external timing circuits with a pin-selectable CCD power-up sequencing, and the controlled in-rush current makes batteries last longer. It comes in a 3 x 3 mm, 14-pin TDFN package, just over half the size of an ordinary converter system. It has less noise, and saves battery life and space with a 1MHz fixed-frequency PWM operation, plus high-efficiency, high-voltage internal n-FET and p-FET transistors. It also comes with True Shutdown™ without an external FET and internal compensation capacitors. Prices start at $2 each at 1,000-unit quantities and up.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
