With many airlines reducing the maximum weight per bag to 50 lb maximum, it is easy to overpack. The Solutions Collection has a built-in digital scale to weigh luggage and avoid surprises and costly over-weight charges. The built-in luggage scale uses load cell technology with a proven history in many digital scale applications. The system's electronics were designed and tested to withstand the punishment luggage must endure from baggage handlers. Pushing a button activates the scale, the LCD display provides the readout in pounds or kilograms, and the unit automatically turns off after 15 seconds to avoid excessive battery drain and extend battery life.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
