Power transformers tout UL approval Product News 3/13/2006 Post a comment J.W. Miller Magnetics has introduced a family of 50/60 Hz low-profile power transformers with UL approval. These RoHS-compliant SS, SD, DD and UD series devices offer a variety of power ratings and mechanical configurations.
RF choke features smaller size Product News 3/3/2006 Post a comment J.W. Miller offers its 79F conformal coated choke in a smaller subminiature package size in combination with high Q value and high-frequency characteristics for computers, computer peripherals, telecommunications equipment, and consumer electronic devices.
High-capacitance passives shrink for portable devices Product News 3/2/2006 Post a comment Capacitor manufacturers are stepping up to the plate when it comes to increasing capacitance in smaller package sizes to enable design engineers to shrink the size of their next-generation portable devices. They are also making sure these devices are compliant to the RoHS directive.
Drones are, in essence, flying autonomous vehicles. Pros and cons surrounding drones today might well foreshadow the debate over the development of self-driving cars. In the context of a strongly regulated aviation industry, "self-flying" drones pose a fresh challenge. How safe is it to fly drones in different environments? Should drones be required for visual line of sight – as are piloted airplanes? Join EE Times' Junko Yoshida as she moderates a panel of drone experts.
