Researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have created thin, flexible electronic devices that efficiently harvest the mechanical energy from natural motions of the human body. In addition to advances in materials processing to enable fabrication of these thin film devices, accurate analytical models were developed to predict electrical output of mechanical energy harvesting devices as a function of key design parameters and materials properties.

Fundamentals of Heat Pipes: Theory, Design Applications
Posted in On-Demand Webinars, Electronic Components, Electronics on Thursday, 14 May 2015
With increased power requirements and reducing packaging size, thermal management is critical for to ensure optimum performance of key electronics in military, medical and other commercial applications. Heat Pipes, which are ‘super conductors’ of heat, are now being more frequently utilized to solve these challenging heat issues. Although heat pipes have been around for decades, many new applications for them continue to emerge.

Reducing Interconnection Weight in Autosports
Posted in Articles, Electronic Components, Electronics, Composites, Fiber Optics on Tuesday, 31 March 2015
In Formula 1 and other autosports, weight reduction is critical to competitive advantage. A few grams saved here and a few more saved there can add up to significant savings. There is also a move toward high-density packaging of electronics parts. As the electronics content of cars increases, the natural drive is to miniaturize the package to gain maximum efficiency in the use of space.

Capacitively Coupled, High-Voltage Current Sensing for Extreme Environments
Posted in Briefs, TSP, Electronic Components, Power Supplies, Thermal Management, Sensors on Saturday, 28 February 2015
NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Pasadena, California Wide-temperature and extreme-environment electronics are crucial to future missions. These missions will not have the weight and power budget for heavy harnesses and large, inefficient warm boxes. In addition, extreme-environment electronics, by their inherent nature, allow operation next to sensors in the ambient environment, reducing noise and improving precision over the warm-box-based systems employed today.

DOEs Rescue Questionable Medical Electronics PCBs
Posted in Features, Board-Level Electronics, Electronic Components, Electronics on Saturday, 28 February 2015
Board cleaning is perhaps one of the most overlooked aspects of printed circuit board (PCB) assembly. But savvy medical electronics original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) have a keen sense of the importance it plays to ensure their products are free of miniscule flaws, defects, debris, and dust. In special cases, critical examinations must be performed to assure the correct cleaning solvents and processes are implemented to avoid damaging contaminants.
