Remote-Controlled Robot Inspects Suspicious Packages

Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for High Frequency Physics and Radar Techniques (FHR) have created a sensor suite that will help emergency services more effectively detect improvised explosive devices. The system records the shape of suspicious packages and creates 3D images of their contents.

A Robust Supply Chain: The Important Role Your Contract Manufacturer Can Play

Your complex device demands a robust supply chain. In today’s unsure environment, you need to know that your supply chain is available, flexible, and affordable when you need it. Establishing a strong and effective partnership with a contract manufacturer can ensure that you have the purchasing power and agility needed when the unexpected happens or design changes are needed. “A Robust Supply Chain,” our White Paper, outlines three things to look for in a contract manufacturer and three things you can do to ensure a smooth production process and an improved bottom line.

Ultra Low Thermal Resistant Adhesives for Electronic Applications

As advances in epoxy and silicone materials constantly evolve, manufacturers of advanced electronic systems will find that adhesives offer the ability to meet nearly any combination of requirements for thermal, environmental, and structural stability. As product manufacturers face greater challenges in assembling die, package, and other components into products able to cope with increasing heat loads, adhesives are particularly versatile for bonding, sealing and coating. Moreover, the use of filler materials in adhesives can help to fine tune the specific performance demands required to extend product lifecycles and meet manufacturing requirements. Learn more about why and how ultra low thermally conductive adhesives are the preferred fastening approach in applications requiring careful thermal management.

Evaluating Electrically Insulating Epoxies

Dielectric constant, dissipation factor, dielectric strength, surface and volume resistivity are all fundamental electrical properties of epoxies. How they are measured, what values are desirable and how they react to changes in temperature, fillers and other variables are considered in this paper. The specific composition of resin and curing agents will also affect the electrical properties of a cured epoxy system. Three major types of curing agents are explained in this paper along with their benefits and trade-offs with respect to electrical properties.
