Teledyne's matrices are modular, with standard subassemblies supporting a number of customized matrix assemblies. They use Teledyne relays and switches inside the assembly and main module, a standard programmable microcontroller in all matrices, and a universal power supply. Standard and customized switching configurations range from compact, four-terminal modules to M-inputs-to-N-outputs rack assemblies. Components offer ± 0.1dB repeatability, power up to 2KW capability, 5M cycles, built-in attenuation/bypass, and 50- and 75-ohm impedance. Standard modules come with LCD displays, manual/direct and/or remote control, and multiple input/output connectors, while the control module offers monitored cycle count, system health-system status, redundancy, LED visual status and upgradeable in-circuit programming.
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.
