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 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
