Cree Inc.'s XLamp MT-G LEDs are for 35-50W halogen MR16
retrofit bulbs and other accent, track, display and down lighting used in
retail stores, residential settings, museums, art galleries, hospitality and
landscapes and are the first commercial LEDs to deliver sufficient light output
for these applications. The multi-die XLamp MT-G LED features Cree EasyWhite
technology to deliver consistent color in a small package. This LED is designed
for the high-lumen, small-footprint requirements of 35 and 50W halogen retrofit
lamps. The XLamp MT-G LED is tested at 85C which can simplify luminaire design
calculations and speed time-to-market. With a 9 x 9 mm footprint, the MT-G LED
delivers up to 560 lm at 1.1A at 85C or up to 1525 lm at 4A at 85 C in warm
white (3000K). Samples are available immediately and production volumes are
available with standard lead times.
Robots that walk have come a long way from simple barebones walking machines or pairs of legs without an upper body and head. Much of the research these days focuses on making more humanoid robots. But they are not all created equal.
The IEEE Computer Society has named the top 10 trends for 2014. You can expect the convergence of cloud computing and mobile devices, advances in health care data and devices, as well as privacy issues in social media to make the headlines. And 3D printing came out of nowhere to make a big splash.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
