This RoHS-compliant, 3.3V, HCMOS ceramic-surface mount oscillator is made for small spaces inside items such as laptop computers, PDAs, cell phones, DVD players, MP3 players, video and digital cameras, PCMCIA cards, Bluetooth, small rack-mount and portable test equipment. It fits in these spaces well, measuring 2.5 x 2 mm, with a 0.8 mm profile. It only needs 7 mA of input current during full operation at 12 MHz, and only 5A of power during standby operation. It has a frequency range of 0.84 MHz to 75 MHz, a frequency stability of +/- 100 PPM, runs in temperatures of -20C (68F) to 70C (158F), and long-term aging of +/-5 PPM per year. It also comes in other tolerances. Fox Electronicshttp://rbi.ims.ca/4928-598
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
