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
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
