Panasonic (Seacaucus, NJ) has expanded its line of HD camera and recording systems designed for medical applications. The 32" EJ-MLA32U-W and 37" EJ-MLA37UJ-W HD LCD displays offer several viewing options including side-by-side display of two high-definition, vivid medical images, with independent adjust of each; three simultaneous screen displays (e.g. surgical image, vital signs); and a user-selectable picture-in-picture option. The image can be reversed or inverted to accommodate various orientations. Each of the viewing options is enhanced with Panasonic’s In-Plane-Switching Technology (IPS-Pro), which eliminates the conventional restrictions of LCD displays and delivers a wider viewing angle of 178° vertical and 178° horizontal, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and a brightness level of 400 cd/m2. The 1920 × 1080 pixel screen displays up to 16.77 million colors.
Modeling Tool for Connectors
Posted in Electronics & Computers, Electronics, Products, MDB on Tuesday, 01 March 2011
ITT Interconnect Solutions (Santa Ana, CA) has developed an online modeling tool that allows design engineers to create virtual 3D connector models, even for designs that have yet to be manufactured. Users may use a single interface to search for medical, military, industrial, and high-reliability interconnect products. With the tool, engineers may select from various output model formats, such as STEP, Pro/E, Shrinkwrap STL, and IGES. This modeling capability is currently available for ITT’s 38999 Series III connectors.
