Opal-MM-1616-XT offers 16 unidirectional optoisolated inputs
that can accept dc voltages up to 30V dc. Inputs feature channel to channel and
input to output isolation of 500V dc or ac. The inputs also feature a
programmable edge detection circuit (change of state detection circuit) that
can generate interrupts on any change on any input.
also provides 16 Form C SPDT relay outputs rated at 30V dc at 2A capacity, or
125V ac at 0.1A. Each relay has two sets of normally open, common, and normally
closed contacts wired in parallel for greater reliability and lifetime.
temperature operation of -40 to +85C is tested and guaranteed. Optional 0-ohm
resistors may be installed instead of the address jumpers for additional
ruggedness. Optional latching connectors may be installed for both inputs and
outputs to further improve reliability.
Driver works with Windows XP, CE, Linux, QNX and DOS. Application examples are
included for each function and OS to provide a quick starting point for
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.
