cool white (6500 K) XLamp XM-L LEDs deliver 1000 lm with 100 lm per
W efficacy at 3A. In a compact 5 x 5 mm footprint, XM-L LEDs offer the unique
combination of very high efficacy at very high drive currents delivering light
output and efficacy of 160 lm per W at 350 mA and up to 315 lm and 150 lm per W
at 700 mA, providing a 20 percent efficiency gain from the Cree current
industry leading XLamp XP-G LEDs.
XLamp XM-L LEDs are available in sample and
production quantities with standard lead times.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
