Aremco's new single-part, ceramic-filled adhesive paste can bond to ceramic, metal, and quartz, and has a dielectric strength of 200 volts per mil, volume resistivity of 109 ohm-cm, coefficient of thermal expansion of 4.2in/in/ F, and a torque strength of 6.0 ft-lbs. It is rated up to 3,000 F (1,650C). It goes on with a brush, syringe, or automatic dispenser. It cures in 24 hours at room temperature, or can cure in two hours at 200F. When cured, it resists moisture and thermal shock. Made for assembly of igniters, thermocouples, probes and sensors such as oxygen analyzers, gas chromatographs, mass spectrometers, and high-vacuum components, it comes from stock in pint, quart, gallon and five-gallon pails.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
To get to a trillion sensors in the IoT that we all look forward to, there are many challenges to commercialization that still remain, including interoperability, the lack of standards, and the issue of security, to name a few.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
