Thermistors by the Numbers Thermocouples measure temperatures over a broad range and at high temperatures. But when a task calls for precision measurements over a smaller, lower temperature range, somewhere from about -80 to 300C, thermistors do the trick. And because thermistors come in small packages, they exhibit fast response times.Full Story

Manufacturers Need to Develop a Green StrategyManufacturers need to develop strategies to cope with emerging environmental rules. They should keep an eye toward designing products for recycling, says a report from Gartner Inc. of Stamford, CT. Full Story House Calls Make a ComebackDigital technology and broadband communications are fast becoming channels through which the electronics industry aims to supply health care to the world, in an effective, cost-conscious manner. Full Story LVDS Technology Could Replace Fiber Optics in Automotive MultimediaA new low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) technology could enable automakers to eliminate fiber optic cabling and connectors from high-end automotive multimedia systems. The new technology, expected to reach the automotive electronics market in January, could have a profound impact on automakers who are interested in employing the MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) networking standard.
