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
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
The age of touch could soon come to an end. From smartphones and smartwatches, to home devices, to in-car infotainment systems, touch is no longer the primary user interface. Technology market leaders are driving a migration from touch to voice as a user interface.
Soft starter technology has become a way to mitigate startup stressors by moderating a motor’s voltage supply during the machine start-up phase, slowly ramping it up and effectively adjusting the machine’s load behavior to protect mechanical components.
A new report from the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) makes a start on developing control schemes, process measurements, and modeling and simulation methods for powder bed fusion additive manufacturing.
If you’re developing a product with lots of sensors and no access to the power grid, then you’ll want to take note of a Design News Continuing Education Center class, “Designing Low Power Systems Using Battery and Energy Harvesting Energy Sources."
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.
