LED technology has advanced rapidly, with improved chip designs and materials facilitating the development of brighter, more energy-efficient, and longer-lasting light sources that can be used in a wide spectrum of applications. In spite ...


12-07-05 - Glass Capacitor Chosen by NASA for Over 50 Years

AVX Glass capacitors played a vital role in the wake up circuitry and deployment of the Huygens space probe. Glass capacitors facilitated the separation of the probe from the Cassini spacecraft on December 25, 2004, and allowed the probe to begin a 21-day trip to the surface of Titan, Saturn’s large...


31-03-05 - MEMS Inertial Sensor Use Growing for Automotive Applications

The proliferation of inertial MEMS sensor content in cars is driving system designers to rethink the current stand-alone sensor architecture in favor of an inertial sensing cluster. Once the inertial information for all systems is available, added features will add little cost to the vehicle. While ...


29-03-05 - µController Emulation meets LabVIEW

For many years there has been a vision of creating a universal engineering tool for developing, debugging and testing software. Today, we are one step closer to having such a tool that can also be used in the world of embedded systems development. LabVIEW’s use of graphical programming as a basis fo...


18-03-05 - Hot Swap Capability Eliminates Down Time

Systems applications such as telecommunications and data communications that employ fault tolerant power delivery architectures usually require "live (or hot) swap" capability for zero downtime. This article presents design considerations related to 48V distributed power architectures using hot swa...
