The company uses its own PCB-mounted Series 70 switches instead of ordinary metal dome membrane switches in its custom-built interfaces. The switches have a reactive click that is easy for the user to feel and hear, making them more comfortable to use. They are reliable, too, offering up to 5 million operations. They have an LED illumination in a variety of colors, and white LED illumination behind removable color insertion strips is also available, making it easy for customers to customize their model. They are designed for instrumentation, machine tools, and other applications. EAO Switch Corp.http://rbi.ims.ca/4928-600
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?
