This high-speed indium gallium arsenide camera is designed for applications including machine vision, pulsed laser beam profiling, high-speed motion analysis and other image-tracking tasks. Its spectral response from 900-1,700 nm offers high speed and regions of interest. It captures images at 109 frames per second on a 640 x 512-pixel focal plane array on a 25-micron pitch, and can image smaller regions at over 15,000 frames per second with 100 percent fill factor. It has a single 14-bit digital Camera Link®-compatible output and a simultaneous analog video NTSC output. Serial commands control ROI window size, position and integration time. It also has user-programmable exposure times, anti-blooming protection, non-uniformity corrections and external triggering of full-frame or ROI acquisition.

Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
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.
