V-Infinity's newest line of RoHS-compliant power supplies can take a universal input voltage (85 to 264V ac) and have efficiencies up to 88 percent in the 48V model. The VOF-25 measures 3.54 × 2 × 0.75 inches, while the VOF-45/65 versions are 4 × 2 × 1.28 inches. All units are rated to function at 100 percent load from in 0-50C temperatures. Their outputs range from 3.3-48V along 23 different single output models. They also offer a greater power density than 6W/in3, short circuit, over-current and over-voltage protection. Conductive EMI meets CISPR/FCC class B standards, and it has UL/cUL/TUV/CE/CB safety approvals.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
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.
