The DSPH Series of 12- to 16-bit, 25 VA, reference-powered digital-to-synchro converters require a (plusMinus)5V dc input power and have internal transformer-isolated outputs even at 60 Hz. The series will accept up to 16-bit natural binary input and convert it to 90V 3-wire synchro signal from 60 to 400 Hz with an accuracy of up to (plusMinus)2 minutes of arc. The output is short-circuit-proof and current-limited with transient protection and thermal cutoff. A kick circuit frees the torque receiver rotor to prevent hangups. The unit is packaged in a 5.09 x 7.4 x 2.60-inch bulkhead-mounting metal case.

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.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
