Applications include medical equipment, clinical
instrumentation, food processing, beverage dispensing and most other forms of
These 2-way and 3-way valves have wetted surfaces molded
entirely of engineered, high-performance materials such as PEEK, Ultem®,
Radel®, Viton®-GF with FDA and UPS class VI approval. The valves withstand
chemical attack by corrosive and biological fluids while remaining inert and
maintaining the integrity of the fluid pathway.
The valves pictured are for a dialysis application and
are configured to provide high flow with an exceptionally high tolerance to
particulate matter and precipitates. Poppets and seats are configured to
provide bubble-tight leakage characteristics.
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
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.
