The LED can
be used wherever there are large fluctuations in temperature and a large amount
of light is needed from a small area. The thermal coefficient of expansion
of the molding material precisely matches the coefficient of expansion of the boards,
and there is an ESD protective diode concealed in the molding. The high output
efficiency in the black package does not require additional reflectors. The
materials have been chosen so that even large fluctuations in temperature do
not have an adverse effect on reliability or on the life of the LED (approx.
50,000 hours). The Oslon LED
has a low thermal resistance of 6.5 K/W.
The Oslon Black Series has a lens with
a 90 degree beam angle and produces a typical brightness of 115 lm at an operating
current of 350 mA and a color temperature of 6500 K. By increasing the operating
current to 1 A, it is able to achieve a brightness of 250 lm. The LED uses a 1 mmÂ²
chip and is available in all colors, including warm white. The Oslon Black Series solder pad is
compatible with the other LEDs in the Oslon product family.
The LED is useful for signal lights, interior
lighting for refrigerators and lighting for train, planes, automobiles, and
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
If you see a hitchhiker along the road in Canada this summer, it may not be human. That’s because a robot is thumbing its way across our neighbor to the north as part of a collaborative research project by several Canadian universities.
SpaceX has 3D printed and successfully hot-fired a SuperDraco engine chamber made of Inconel, a high-performance superalloy, using direct metal laser sintering (DMLS). The company's first 3D-printed rocket engine part, a main oxidizer valve body for the Falcon 9 rocket, launched in January and is now qualified on all Falcon 9 flights.
Stanford University researchers have found a way to realize what’s been called the “Holy Grail” of battery-design research -- designing a pure lithium anode for lithium-based batteries. The design has great potential to provide unprecedented efficiency and performance in lithium-based batteries that could substantially drive down the cost of electric vehicles and solve the charging problems associated with smartphones.
UK researchers have come up with a method for machining aerospace-grade, carbon fiber-reinforced composites, along with high-strength aerospace alloys, using an ultrasonically assisted machining device. It also works on high-strength aerospace alloys.
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.
