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.

Some humanoid walking robots are also good at running, balancing, and coordinated movements in group settings. Several of our sports robots have won regional or worldwide acclaim in the RoboCup soccer World Cup, or FIRST Robotics competitions. Others include the world's first hockey-playing robot and a trash-talking Scrabble player.
Sherlock Ohms highlights stories told by engineers who have used their deductive reasoning and technical prowess to troubleshoot and solve the most perplexing engineering mysteries.
Melissa Cavanagh of 3DP Unlimited talked to Design News about the company’s large format 3D printer, during Medical Design and Manufacturing Midwest.
The DDV-IP is a two-wheeled self-balancing robot that can deliver cold beverages to thirsty folks on hot summer days. A wireless RF remote enables manual control of the device beyond the act of self-balancing. All of the features of the DDV-IP result in an effective delivery vehicle while providing entertainment to the user.
Eric Doster of iFixit talks about the most surprising aspect of the Microsoft Surface Pro 3 teardown. In a presentation at Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest, iFixit gave the Surface Pro 3 a score of one (out of a possible 10) for repairability.
