Comparing miniature motors from several vendors can be confusing. Each vendor has their own rating systems. Trying to compare published data from multiple vendors is akin to having a conversation with the tower of Babel.
In cleanroom environments, it’s crucial to minimize surface contamination. Since contaminating particles can get trapped in liquid that stays on surfaces, surface wipe drying performance is important.
Normally, when we want to breathe in, we just do it. But with artificial ventilation, how does the machine know how much air the patient needs, and when?
Microtips Technology is presenting a re-engineered liquid crystal display module that offers advantages over the current technology used in vacuum fluorescent displays (VFD). Within this white paper, Microtips will introduce the benefits of vivid liquid crystal displays (VLCD).
This white paper reviews the general principles of test-centric assembly for manufacturers and machine builders more accustomed to streamlining assembly operations where testing is absent or plays a minimal part.
The fundamental advantage of a stepper motor, speed and position control without feedback, is becoming more attractive to industries sensitive to cost, or to overcome the reliability problems linked to the mechanical commutation system of DC motors.
This white paper examines the printer technologies that are available for embedded applications, explains why direct thermal technology is ideal for embedded usage, provides selection criteria for identifying the right thermal printer, and demonstrates the value of engaging the printer manufacturer early in the design cycle.
Countless companies worldwide use radio frequency identification (RFID) to improve internal efficiencies, adding to their value proposition and increasing product or process safety. The technology is especially useful to medical device manufacturers, who must ensure the safety of their products and production processes to protect patients.
Power sources for medical devices must accommodate numerous requirements, from duration to size to durability. The market offers a plethora of choices of both primary (non-rechargeable) and secondary (rechargeable) batteries in a great variety of shapes, sizes, and chemistries. This article focuses on design considerations for primary cells, with a brief look at secondary cells.
