External Power Supply Efficiency Regulation Introduction
Posted in White Papers, Electronics on Thursday, 16 April 2015
Presently Energy Efficiency Level V is mandatory in Canada and throughout Europe. In February 2016 Energy Efficiency Level VI will become mandatory in the United States. Attached are the details of the pending change, but in brief, both the standby power draw and efficiency of the operating power supplies must meet minimum levels set in the standard. MEGA is in the process of updating our product line to comply with the coming changes.

Reducing Interconnection Weight in Autosports
Posted in Articles, Electronic Components, Electronics, Composites, Fiber Optics on Wednesday, 01 April 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.

Magnetic Fluids Deliver Better Speaker Sound Quality
Posted in Articles, Electronics, Joining & Assembly on Wednesday, 01 April 2015
NASA’s liquid magnetization technology helps Sony increase sound amplitude while reducing distortion. In the early 1960s, NASA scientists were trying to move fuel into an engine without the benefit of gravity. A scientist at Lewis Research Center (now Glenn Research Center) came up with the idea to magnetize the liquid with extremely fine particles of iron oxide. That way, fuel could be drawn into the engine using magnetic force.

Thermal Management Solutions for Medical Electronics
Posted in Features, Electronics, Thermal Management on Wednesday, 01 April 2015
Electronic devices used in the medical industry have thermal management needs similar to those in other fields. Their electronics must stay cool enough to run continuously and correctly within their operating temperature range. Sound thermal management allows excess heat to be efficiently moved, spread, and dissipated. The result is improved system reliability and service life while, in many cases, it also helps designers reduce device package size, weight, energy consumption, and noise.

Linear Motors
Posted in Products, Electronics, Motors & Drives on Wednesday, 01 April 2015
Heidenhain (Schaumburg, IL) offers ETEL ILF and ILM series ironless high-speed linear motors for use in the semiconductor and electronics industry. The motors utilize an ironfree coil design for zero-attraction force between the carriage and the magnetic way. The ILF is a smallersized motor for very high dynamic and low-moving mass applications; the ILM is a more powerful version of the ILF, and has an option to be air-cooled to increase continuous force output. The ironless motors come in a variety of lengths and heights with different degrees of force, and share the same profile so that one is interchangeable with the other. The motors can reach speeds of up to 20 m/s and peak force of up to 2,500 N. They are designed for direct drive applications and offer no backlash, fewer parts, and require no maintenance.
