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 x 3 mm. The TH72016 IC accepts battery voltages from 1.9 to 5.5 V. 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. Melexis http://rbi.ims.ca/4912-548
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
