Intended for industrial applications, this portable data logger measures and stores up to 32,510 Carbon Monoxide (CO) readings. The user establishes the logging rate and start time and can download the stored data by plugging the module into a PC's USB port. The unit uses Nemoto's NAP-505 electrochemical carbon monoxide gas sensor. The sensor consists of three porous noble metal electrodes separated by an acidic aqueous electrolyte and housed in a Polyphenylene Oxide (PPO) plastic package. The unit has a 0 to 1,000 ppm measurement range with a resolution of 0.5 ppm CO. For more information on Nemoto's NAP-505 Electrochemical Carbon Monoxide Gas Sensor.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
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.
