Inc.'s eI/O family of Ethernet digital
I/O solutions include five
different I/O models with a choice of optically isolated inputs, Reed relay
outputs and Form C relay outputs. All eI/O modules are available in Power over
Ethernet (PoE 802.3af) versions to connect to existing PoE networks with power
and data provided on one cable, or users can choose dc powered models with
9-30V dc input range. Ready for DIN rail mounting, eI/O modules include
a removable plastic clip that snaps onto 35mm DIN rail. The clip can also be
attached to any flat surface such as a wall or under a counter.
Communication with eI/O modules can be done by using
Modbus TCP protocol or Sealevel SeaMAX software. The SeaMAX software suite
supports the eI/O family and is designed to work with third party applications
via the SeaMAX API. Sealevel's SeaMAX software drivers and utilities
use Microsoft Windows operating systems. Standard operating temperature range
of eI/O modules is 0 to 70C.
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?
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.
