Ringing in my head

The resonance of ferrite winds up being very useful in ultrasonic cleaners in that it allows a higher level of energy transfer than would be available at a nonresonant frequency. Some disk capacitors exhibit a similar ringing due to a piezoelectric effect.

Jason, we contacted our contributor to find the answer to your question about the ringing. He said he'll contact team members on the project to find out what was done to completely remove the ringing.

Frequencies in circuits

Frequencies are often times found in circuits where most would not expect it.

I deal with RF Amplifiers, and we have one circuit that uses a simple ferrite that is rectangular with a 75-ohm strip of wire through the center of it.  As we increase the power out of the amplifier, the ferrites literally sing.  Albiet this is slightly a different cause than the article, it is an interesting phenomenon that can be found in many places.

 

By the way, what was ever done to completely remove the ringing, or was the epoxy solution the final one?

The promise of the Internet of Things (IoT) is that devices, gadgets, and appliances we use every day will be able to communicate with one another. This potential is not limited to household items or smartphones, but also things we find in our yard and garden, as evidenced by a recent challenge from the element14 design community.
Researchers have developed a new flexible fabric that integrates both movement and sensors, introducing new potential for technology-embedded clothing and soft robots.

If you didn't realize that PowerPoint presentations are inherently hilarious, you have to see Don McMillan take one apart. McMillan -- aka the Technically Funny Comic -- worked for 10 years as an engineer before he switched to stand-up comedy.
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.
