Toshiba America Electronic Components Inc. (TAEC) has released three high-voltage three-phase motor drivers with built-in power management circuits. The circuits were designed for direct current brushless motors, air conditioner fans and pump motors. Developed by Toshiba Corp., the TPD4104K, TPD4111K and TDP4112K single- chip inverter ICs are manufactured using high-voltage silicon on insulator trench isolation process.
The motor drivers were created to help with energy savings. “A growing number of home appliances and industrial products are employing dc motors and inverters that take lower power consumption and protection of the global environment into account,” says Ajay Chinai, business development manager, discrete products for TAEC. “With these devices, Toshiba is responding to industry demand for higher power, faster response time and higher levels of integration, all in a small structure.”
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
