Originally made for ceramic fiberboards and other ceramic-based materials in heaters, ovens and furnaces in the automotive, electronics and plastics industries, this single-part, water-dispersed, ceramic-silicone sealant is now used for sealing high-temperature motor windings. It has moisture resistance and dielectric properties to 1100F (593C). Applied by brush, roller or spray equipment, it has a viscosity of 600-1,200 cps. It can dry in less than an hour at room temperature and cure fully at 450F in 30-60 minutes. It has a solids content of 40 percent and a theoretical coverage rate of 535 ft2 per gallon at 1 mil. It has no volatile organic compounds, is non-flammable and environmentally safe. It comes from stock in pint, quart, and gallon containers.
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
