AVX Corp.'s AEC Q200 qualified miniature surface mount LC T configured
FeedThru filter is a solution to automotive EMI concerns in critical systems.
The FeedThru filters provide design engineers with consistent broadband EMI
filtering for critical drive by wire applications such as throttle and braking.
A single miniature FeedThru filter can replace up to three discrete devices and
save board space by approximately 75 percent.
miniature surface mount LC T configured FeedThru filters typically provide a
beneficial broadband -30dB of attenuation across a 300 MHz frequency spectrum.
The response can start as low as 75 MHz or end as high as 1500 MHz. The
FeedThru filters are available in high current ratings ranging from 2A steady
state in 0805 to 5A steady state in 1206 packages. They are available in
4-element array configuration for display, keyboard and communication
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.
