Mill-Max's series of rugged spring pins
capable of carrying 9A continuous current at a 10C temperature rise. The
Mill-Max 0850, 0851, 0852 and 0853 spring pins are a solution for rugged
applications and for use in circuits operating at currents above signal level.
085X series has a greater mass and surface area for a lower resistance
electrical path than miniature spring pins. Because they are designed and built
with the same precision of our miniature spring pins they exhibit
signal integrity in shock and vibration environments.?
large scale spring pins feature a gold plated stainless steel spring, .050 inch
diameter solid plunger and thick wall construction to withstand the rigors of
demanding applications. Designed for through-hole mounting, each pin has a
large diameter post and flange providing for a perpendicular and secure P.C.B.
085X series provides a .045 inch mid-stroke and .090 inch maximum stroke
allowing for use in applications where stack up tolerances are great.
Applications include board stacking, docking stations, cable assemblies, quick
connects and anywhere there is a blind mate situation.?
In this new Design News feature, "How it Works," we’re starting off by examining the inner workings of the electronic cigarette. While e-cigarettes seemed like a gimmick just two or three years ago, they’re catching fire -- so to speak. Sales topped $1 billion last year and are set to hit $10 billion by 2017. Cigarette companies are fighting back by buying up e-cigarette manufacturers.
Microchip recently released the 3D TouchPad, the first USB PC Peripheral device that couples 2D multi-touch input with 3D air gesture technology. The company seeks the help of developers to further enhance the capabilities of the technology.
To give engineers a better idea of the range of resins and polymers available as alternatives to other materials, this Technology Roundup presents several articles on engineering plastics that can do the job.
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.
