Taiyo Yuden's Hybrid
LIC can be used as a standalone power source or as a load charge leveling
device to increase the life of the main power source such as a dry battery or
lithium primary battery.
These LICs provide an increased maximum rated voltage of 3.8V. Lithium
pre-doping stores lithium ions at the anode in advance and enables energy to
be used more efficiently and cycle life to be increased.
The LIC is designed for use as a storage power source along with solar cells,
fuel cells, generators and other applications taking advantage of the LIC's rapid discharge. It can also be used as a power source for
small devices, including toys, measuring equipment and machine tools.
The LIC is available in 3
capacitances: 40, 100 and 200F. Operating temperatures range from -25 - +60C
and they do not contain heavy metals such as such as Cd, Hg or Pb.
More and more robots are becoming more autonomous all the time. Now Lockheed Martin has completed a demo mission with two completely autonomous robotic vehicles performing resupply, reconnaissance, surveillance, and target acquisition.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
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.
