The TH72016 transmitter works in virtually any FSK, ASK, or FM system in the 380 to 450 MHz unlicensed Industrial-Scientific-Medical (ISM) and Short-Range-Devices (SRD) frequency bands. Its extended operating temperature range of -40 to +125C and clock output to drive a microcontroller make it ideal for automotive applications such as Tire Pressure Monitoring Sytems (TPMS) or Remote Keyless Entry (RKE) that require enhanced data timing. The TH72016 comes in a space-saving 10-pin Quad Flat No-lead (QFN) package with a footprint of only 3 × 3 mm. The TH72016 IC accepts battery voltages from 1.9 to 5.5V. Power consumption ranges from 3.5 to 12.8 mA depending on the frequency and power setting. In standby mode the current consumption is below 50 nA. The programmable RF transmit power range between -12 to 10 dBm allows the designer to adapt to his RF power requirements.
A simple new chemical method for repairing and recycling notoriously difficult carbon fiber composites has been developed by the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research. An entire component can be completely recycled, including reclaiming its expensive carbon fibers for reuse.
In today’s connected world we are seeing the beginning of connected homes, smart grids, self-driving automobiles, drones, and many other amazing devices. Out of all the soon-to-be connected devices, which device poses the greatest dangerous to its users and society?
