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
Get a load of these strange product designs. What's in the water these design engineers are drinking?
The Dutch are known for their love of bicycling, and they’ve also long been early adopters of green-energy and smart-city technologies. So it seems fitting that a town in which painter Vincent van Gogh once lived has given him a very Dutch-like tribute -- a bike path lit by a special smart paint in the style of the artist's “Starry Night” painting.
Cal Poly students use 3D printing to take flight -- and pass their class.
Celebrity engineer Grant Imahara will host a series of “webisodes” that will examine new technology and innovation from an engineer’s point of view.
The UX Italia video contest recognizes Italian machinery, technology, and other experience solutions that have contributed meaningful improvements to people’s lives and production processes. If you submit a three-minute video showcasing how the quality of Italian machinery's User eXperience is essential to your company's success, you just may win a trip to Italy.
