of Coin Cell Style Supercapacitors provide on-board memory backup a longer life
spans than batteries. With 0.15 to 8 Farads of capacity and voltages up to 5.5 WV
dc these devices supply power to prevent loss of data during a power
interruption and are available in three case configurations for horizontal,
vertical and center-lead mounting. The dc Series includes values and lead
combinations with case sizes as small as 6.8 x 4.6 mm. The operating temperature
ranges from -40 to +85C and 90-95 percent relative humidity. Other features include
fast charge/discharge cycling, IEC 62391 and RoHS compliance and low ESR.
capacitors board mount in applications such as smart meters, HVAC
controls, building automation, business phone systems, appliances, instruments
and other microprocessor-based devices. Because of their high power
density, they can help to reduce board size and case requirements.
The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
