Crossbow Technology announced the DMU-VGX, said to be the industry's first high-speed, solid-state true vertical gyro with performance needed in applications such as camera stabilization. Secret? It couples a MEMS sensor with a high-speed DSP ...Endevco unveiled its caps model 256, a low-cost accelerometer targeted at small structural applications. Measuring 0.44 x 0.375 x 0.380 inch high, it weighs just 3.2 gm, minimizing mass loading effects ...CSEM (Centre Swisse d'Electronique et de Microtech-nique) introduced the MS 6100 Series low-power calibrated accelero-meter. The tiny MEMS device is matched to an ASIC for signal conditioning and EEPROM to hold calibration data. It draws 170 (mu)A and is aimed at portable applications ..VTI Hamlin also unveiled its unique new silicon inclinometer for rugged applications.
Why would the biggest connector company in the world design and build the first fully functional 3D-printed motorcycle? To show TE Connectivity's engineers what the technology can really do in making working load-bearing production parts, and free up their thinking when approaching design problems.
The enhanced ST8 includes new functionality designed to help users accelerate design speed and improve the user’s ability to leverage synchronous technology. The update offers greater flexibility in choice of platform and purchasing options, according to the company.
“How can European standards affect me, especially since I only use machines built in the US?” This is a common question, and one way to answer this is to look at how machine safety is enforced, where the information comes from, and how well you can prove you followed the regulations.
