MICROKEY Elastomer Series keyboards let users in dimly lit environments see what they're typing on. Users can adjust the backlighting by pressing the FN and F7 keys simultaneously to choose one of several lighting levels. The backlight switch is sealed to resist dust, debris, and water. Three versions are available. The desktop version is a full-featured keyboard with a small footprint enclosure that has flip-up legs. Designers can modify an unenclosed version to meet customers' requirements. And the NEMA 4 version is enclosed in stainless steel and rated for harsh environments. Applications include: process-control equipment, medical equipment, and test and measurement instruments. Advanced Input Devices: Product Code 4207
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?
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.
