Sensirion's new SHT21 humidity and
temperature sensor has been qualified in accordance with the AEC-Q100
automotive standard. During the qualification process, the SHT21 was put
through the relevant series of tests. Its aging resistance was confirmed by the
High Temperature Operating Lifetime (HTOL) test,
and its stress resistance was demonstrated by the Unbiased Highly Accelerated
Stress Test (UHST). A Temperature Cycling (TC) test confirmed the compatibility
of the packaging material with the chip and substrate, and the Electrostatic
Discharge (ESD) and Electromagnetic Compatibility (EMC) tests proved the
robustness of the sensor with regard to these parameters.
SHT21 humidity sensor passed all the tests without any permanent changes to its
characteristics and therefore fulfilled the quality requirements of the
AEC-Q100 automotive standard. This qualification, along with the reliability,
stability and robustness it certifies, allows users to employ the SHT21 with proper,
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
