The VQ5000 series of high flow valves are designed for use in automotive, brickwork, forestry, mineral processing, machine tool, and metal casting industries to drive large bore actuators. The five-port solenoid valve is engineered for large bore actuator applications requiring rapid movement of heavy loads. It provides a high coefficient of volume flow up to 4.4 Cv. It is available with single or double solenoids in both metal and rubber seal construction. SMC Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-589
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?
