Designers of electrical and electronic components have a wide choice of polymers at their disposal.
Engineers at the School of Electronics and Computer Science have developed a method to make bipolar transistors that work twice as fast as current devices.
The Centre for Integrated Photonics (CIP) in England has announced a novel hybrid assembly technique that offers a simple yet reliable method of integrating optical devices.
Until recently, UL certificates that were primarily accepted in the US, Canada and in other parts of the world were mainly available for systems. Now, with the implementation of UL certification for computer-on-modules (COMs), Kontron now provides OEMs with more security in selecting appropriate COMs and simplifies the procedure for its own UL certification.
