Elma's Type 39c HA line comes with 9U cPCI backplanes, which allow hot-swapping of power supplies with 47-pin connectors. The line also comes with pluggable fan tray headers and optional shelf management modules, with redundancy options available to be built in. The backplanes come in standard cPCI, H.110 or PICMG 2.16 options. Made with an economical sheet metal design and full pluggability, the chassis are compliant to the latest PICMG specifications and IEEE 1101.10/.11. They come in 1U-4U heights in horizontal-mounting orientations, and have side-to-side 200CFM (300LFM) cooling, rear I/O options, and 300 mm depths. The company also offers custom chassis. Other options include an intelligent platform management interface shelf manager option and a Dual Star design on the PICMG 2.16 configurations.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
