Degree Controls, Inc.'sF600 airflow sensor has a small
form factor of 0.5 high X 0.25 wide and X 1.0 inch long with a 0.1 inch pitch
design and can anticipate thermal rise before it occurs by directly monitoring
airflow at critical board locations.
components are protected by the F600 by
using the output to sound an alarm or to reduce system power if there is a loss
of air velocity. Communication to the F600 is done via an I2C or
UART interface. User configurable outputs include PWM, tach or alarm open drain
an air velocity range of 0.5 to 5.0 m/s (100-1000 fpm) and an operating
temperature range of 10 to 60C, the F600 accepts a power supply of 12V dc and
has a Â±45 degree airflow acceptance angle. A temperature output is also
included. With internal factory calibration, the F600 sensors are
fully interchangeable with one another. No field calibration is required.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
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.
