CUI Inc.'s6 W model is part of their VOF series that
covers a range of power from 6 through 80W. All units offer leakage currents
below 0.3 mA. The VOF-6 provides continuous output power,
universal input (85-264V ac) and is offered in 3.3, 5, 12, 15, and 24V dc
output voltages. The VOF-6 measures 2.2 x 1.4 x 0.65 inch.
Protections for over voltage and over current conditions are included. This
series is useful for consumer, industrial, and ITE applications.
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.
