Flexibility in Low-Cost Microphone Array Systems

As more and more production items are required to comply with a variety of environmental standards, noise control is increasingly key to successful market placement. Effective control of testing costs is equally as critical as deployment of the systems themselves. The ADLINK's fully modular solution provides flexible configuration based on actual demand, while substantially reducing implementation costs, for highly efficient and precise measurement with minimal investment.

New SAE Standards on Additive Manufacturing: World’s First for Aerospace Industry

Industry standards play an important role in helping the public by ensuring quality and consistency in the products produced for the marketplace. The emerging field of additive manufacturing (AM) enables parts to be printed in 3D from electronic files created on a computer. These parts are being used in critical applications such as aircraft engines. It is imperative that these parts be manufactured and tested to the strictest standards. SAE International has created the Aerospace Material Specification committee on Additive Manufacturing (AMS-AM). The FAA provided SAE with a task request in support of the formation of a standards committee to develop aerospace material specifications and other related documents that would assist the FAA in developing guidance material for AM certification — certification of parts for use on aircraft such as parts for commercial jets that carry passengers over large bodies of water where there is no room for error or inferior quality.

Five Factors to Consider when Selecting an Overcurrent Protective Device for an Electric Vehicle System to Ensure Safe and Reliable Performance

In electric and hybrid vehicle applications, electrical systems are often pushed to their limits. Aggressive current pulses, combined with high temperatures and vibration profiles, push the limits of electrical system reliability. When selecting an over-current protection device (OCPD), care must be taken to account for these complex variables while still providing a system that is safe and reliable. This article will discuss five critical and often overlooked factors in OCPD selection in EV applications in order to ensure safe and reliable system performance.

Selecting the Right Standard High-Voltage Power Supply

High-voltage power supplies drive a broad range of applications across diverse segments, including semiconductor, scientific, medical, industrial, and more. Designed to deliver stable supply voltages at 50 V and up, the power supplies, comprised of sophisticated components and specialized materials, must carefully manage the high voltages and associated effects, for example, corona and arcing. For systems developers choosing standard high-voltage power supplies, the specialized nature of high-voltage power calls for a power supply selection process that reflects the unique characteristics of the high- voltage power supply and its operation.
