The TQP3M9041 from TriQuint Semiconductor (Hillsboro, OR) is a high linearity, ultra-low noise figure, dual device amplifier. Features include: A frequency range from 2.4GHz to 4GHz.
Forming steel into different size bar stock requires positioning and fastening a system’s roll forming wheels with accuracy so they stay in alignment throughout the process. The ETP Hyloc from Zero-Max (Plymouth, MN) provides the robust hub-shaft connection in these difficult operating environments.
Pepperl+Fuchs has introduced RVS58S Safety Encoders and VBA-2E-KE4-ENC-S AS-Interface Encoder Input Modules. This safe motion solution improves machine productivity and enhances worker safety by detecting zero-speed, over-speed, and motion direction to ensure safe machine access during setup and maintenance.
Root cause failure analysis is a technology for objectively identifying all potential failure causes, and then objectively and systematically identifying the likelihood of each potential cause. This article describes how root cause failure analysis identified and eliminated recurring Apache main rotor blade rejections.
A prominent enemy of efficiency and functionality is heat. From bearings to computer systems to intergalactic hardware, rising temperatures have a tendency to make life a nightmare for design engineers. Thermacore recently experienced the rigors of temperature management while contributing to the design of the NASA’s Landsat Data Continuity mission.
Boeing is delivering 787s again after a four-month halt while it fixed problems that led to smoldering batteries. Boeing announced a delivery on Tuesday to Japan's All Nippon Airways. Airline flights and deliveries were halted in mid-January after two battery incidents.
On today’s episode of RapidFire, brought to you by 3D Creation Systems, your number one source for 3D printing services and technology, we’re exploring the emerging technology behind bionic 3D printing with embedded electronics.
Critics of the new 2.3% medical device excise tax are hitting new heights with their claims of dire consequences. What are the facts? Is the industry overreacting? Students of military strategy learn quickly the advantages of choosing when and where to fight, rather than wasting resources on trivial issues.
GreenPeak Technologies has posted a new White Paper called “Sentrollers and the Internet of Things”. In this paper Sentrollers are defined as a new, all-encompassing term for sensors, actuators and controllers – the various devices that make up the new Internet of Things.
Keyence's image dimension measurement system puts much faster in-process inspection within everyone's reach. Timex is America's leading watchmaker and is present in more than 80 countries. Fralsen, its French entity, makes watch movements using three technologies.
A Wayne State University researcher understands that the three most important things about real estate also apply to small ground robotic vehicles: location, location, location. Weisong Shi, Ph.D., associate professor of computer science in the College of Engineering, describes his development of a technique called LOBOT that provides accurate, real-time, 3D positions in both indoor and outdoor environments.
It’s a familiar scenario – a patient receives a medical implant and days later, the body attacks the artificial valve or device, causing complications to an already compromised system. Expensive, state-of-the-art medical devices and surgeries often are thwarted by the body’s natural response to attack something in the tissue that appears foreign.
Alloys like bronze and steel have been transformational for centuries, yielding top-of-the-line machines necessary for industry. As scientists move toward nanotechnology, however, the focus has shifted toward creating alloys at the nanometer scale—producing materials with properties unlike their predecessors.
