The company offers single-pole double-throw devices like the CCR-33, and a number of multi-throw versions. Coaxial switches are available as latching and failsafe versions. Depending on the impedance (50 or 75) and power, SMA, SMB (75), N or TNC connectors can be specified, and terminated coaxial switches can be supplied as needed. The terminated switches have internal terminations that provide a 50 matched impedance to ground for all unselected ports, and double-pole triple-throw switches can be used when termination of resistors above 1W of power have to be used and therefore externally mounted. Coaxial switch matrices are also available, including power supply, microcontroller, software and required interface. Among other uses, the switches are used in wireless applications, electro-medical equipment, and test and measurement equipment.
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.
