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.
What should be the perception of a product’s real-world performance with regard to the published spec sheet? While it is easy to assume that the product will operate according to spec, what variables should be considered, and is that a designer obligation or a customer responsibility? Or both?
Biomimicry has already found its way into the development of robots and new materials, with researchers studying animals and nature to come up with new innovations. Now thanks to researchers in Boston, biomimicry could even inform the future of electrical networks for next-generation displays.
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.
