Researchers at the University of Pennsylvania propose to shrink circuits to save space and power and, more importantly, accommodate electronic applications at much higher frequencies than are possible with current models - applications that include nano-optics, optical information storage and molecular signalling.
Designed for single phase compressors of up to 6.5kWatts (6.5 shaft horsepower), i-Start's patented switching technology not only reduces start-up currents to less than 45Amps, it reduces electrical load and hence wear on the starter as well, offering the potential of longer life for both compressors and starters alike.
Richardson Electronics has signed a strategic partnership with WJ Communications to represent the global sales channel for its multi-protocol MPR 5000 and MPR 6000 RFID reader cards, available in a standard PCMCIA Type II package.
Researchers from the British universities of Southampton and Glasgow have succeeded in tying knots in light beams.
The performance of organic light-emitting diodes can be improved by doping them with carbon-60 according to scientists at Samsung in South Korea.
Discrete power MOSFETs employ semiconductor processing techniques that are similar to those of today's VLSI circuits, although the device geometry, voltage and current levels are different from the design used in VLSI devices
The Australian total PC monitor market finished last year on a positive note, with shipments in the final quarter growing 1.9% sequentially from the third quarter of 2004, contributing to the 19.1% expansion from 2003.
Advantech has released its next generation of compact embedded computer systems. The ARK-3380 Series box Computers are designed for space critical embedded applications requiring powerful computing capability, fanless operation, low power use, extreme reliability and ruggedness, flexible I/O configuration and long product life support.
