Chicago-based Newark InOne has released a 2007 electronics catalog that is rich with environmentally complaint parts and contains solutions to help customers meet compliance demands. The new catalog employs a green dot to indicate RoHS compliance at the item level. The catalog also includes a 10-step Quality Assurance policy to ensure that its compliant parts are accurately identified. Each compliant part also comes with its own Certificate of RoHS Compliance which can be downloaded from Newark InOne’s website.
While most of the parts in the catalog are RoHS compliant, Newark InOne offers non-compliant parts as well for those manufacturers that are exempt or do not distribute into the European market. The 2,496-page 2007 catalog offers a broad selection of parts from 440 component suppliers. The parts selection is targeted to maintenance and design engineers.
In many engineering workplaces, there’s a generational conflict between recent engineering graduates and older, more experienced engineers. However, a recent study published in the psychology journal Cognition suggests that both may have something to learn from another group: 4 year olds.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
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.
