Multi-Mission Power Analysis Tool

Multi-Mission Power Analysis Tool (MMPAT) Version 2 simulates spacecraft power generation, use, and storage in order to support spacecraft design, mission planning, and spacecraft operations. It can simulate all major aspects of a spacecraft power subsystem. It is parametrically driven to reduce or eliminate the need for a programmer.

GigE-Vision®-Compliant Receivers for the Networked Operating Room

A new type of system offers ultra-low-latency image transmission and low jitter for surgical environments.When vision system integrators are designing systems for hospital operating rooms, they have a number of technologies to choose from. The video interfacing technology with which the system will transmit imaging data to PCs or other system elements has traditionally been limited to point-to-point connections. However, as medical diagnostics and image-guided surgery grow in sophistication and demand, the need for a networked video architecture in the operating room also grows.

High-Power Switches for Future Energy Supply Networks

Renewable energy comes out of an electricity socket, but to get there it has to travel a long journey – from wind turbines out at sea or regional solar, wind, and biogas power plants. On the way to the consumer much energy is lost, but new electronic components will change things in future.
