B&K Precision'sModel 1673 has a quad digital display,
which enables the user to visually monitor the output voltage and current on
both variable outputs simultaneously. The 1673's two variable outputs, configurable
from 0 to 32V dc, and one fixed output of 5V dc provide clean power. The two
variable outputs can also be used independently or interconnected in either
series or parallel configurations for greater output voltage or current
supply can be set via the front panel to provide constant voltage (CV) or
constant current (CC) operation with automatic crossover. This feature allows
for continuous transition from either constant current to constant voltage mode
in response to any load condition changes with a front panel LED indicator to
indicate which mode is active.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
