Austriamicrosystems (www.austriamicrosystems.com) has introduced its 50V CMOS high voltage (HV) process, a fully modular proprietary extension of the 0.35 µm CMOS technology that enables high performance/high current applications. The new purely CMOS-based HV process is achieved with 17 to 19 masks, compared with 23 to 25 in conventional processes, and allows optimum re-use of low-voltage CMOS IP.
Most machine design engineers will survey existing component manufacturers for standard linear guide products, limiting what they can do with their designs. Using extruded aluminum profile guides can customize machine designs while shrinking the bill of materials.
Practically all electronic devices today contain metals that may
be coming from conflict-ravaged African countries. And political pressures will increasingly influence how these minerals are sourced and used in products.
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.
