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.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
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.
