LEMO'sRedel XP is a new
connector with the solution of the plastic Push-Pull connectors which were
originally introduced to the medical market back in 1964. The new Redel XP
connector is designed using a plastic material that is friendly to
sterilization processes. The latching system is now embedded in the shell for
an increased impact resistance with a high contact density making this an ideal
solution for medical or measurement applications, from catheters to surgical
instruments. The new REDEL XP is available with four different keyways to
prevent inadvertent cross connects or misconnects by the user. The outershell
standard color is gray with an option of white or black.
Backnuts and receptacle front nuts are available in seven colors for
application identification. Contact configurations range from 4 to 22 contacts
and can be crimp or solder type. This new design includes an ergonomic grip
which makes it much easier for surgeons and medical staff to mate and align the
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
