Solder paste features a Super Rosin Activated (SRA) flux system for use on oxidized or oily surfaces. The SRA paste also improves wettability on hard-to-solder metals like zinc, Monel(TM), and galvanized steel. The paste also reduces the need to pre-clean parts before soldering and also enhances wetting to provide more reliable solder joints. SRA flux will not tarnish or discolor parts, and residue can be removed with standard rosin cleaning techniques.

United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
