Golden Mousetrap Awards: The Winners!

Electronics & Test:
Analog/Power Management/Control
Vishay Intertechnology
PRAHT resistor arrays
Vishay's PRAHT series of high-precision thin film SMD wraparound chip resistor arrays are optimized for high-temperature down-hole and aeronautics applications. The PRAHT resistors are the first such products on the market to offer the combination of an operating temperature range to 215C and industry-high maximum storage temperature up to 230C.

To increase aircraft fuel efficiency, manufacturers are moving electronics closer to their function in order to decrease the weight of the aircraft by reducing cabling. This change has created new performance requirements for electronic components, including the need for resistors that can provide long-term reliability at high temperatures above 155C. With their operating temperature range to 215C, industry-high maximum storage temperature up to 230C, and load life stability of 0.7 percent, devices in Vishay's new PRAHT series of  thin film SMD wraparound chip resistor arrays are ideal for aircraft engine and braking systems. In addition, for down-hole applications the devices' high-temperature performance allows extraction tools to dig deeper in the ground.

Latest Analysis
The first Tacoma Narrows Bridge was a Washington State suspension bridge that opened in 1940 and spanned the Tacoma Narrows strait of Puget Sound between Tacoma and the Kitsap Peninsula. It opened to traffic on July 1, 1940, and dramatically collapsed into Puget Sound on November 7, just four months after it opened.
Noting that we now live in an era of “confusion and ill-conceived stuff,” Ammunition design studio founder Robert Brunner, speaking at Gigaom Roadmap, said that by adding connectivity to everything and its mother, we aren't necessarily doing ourselves any favors, with many ‘things’ just fine in their unconnected state.
When my daughter decided she wanted to study engineering, I was very proud of her. At the same time, in the back of my mind, I wondered if she knew what she was in for.
AutoDesk has teamed up with 3D scanner provider Artec to link CAD software and 3D scanners to make it faster and easier to create accurate 3D mesh models for printing or digital use.
