Electronics Subracks: Requirements, Selection Criteria And Options For Adaptation

When selecting an electronics subrack, it is important to consider several factors, including application requirements and environmental conditions. Flexible product platforms, such as modular subracks, enable diverse configurations for various dimensions, static and dynamic loading levels such as shock and vibration resistance, electromagnetic interference shielding and individual internal mounting options.

How Lean Manufacturing Adds Value to PCB Production

In an earlier paper, we established the importance of Design for Manufacturing (DFM) in today’s PCB manufacturing environment. PCBs designed using those techniques typically experience reduced failure rates, cost less to manufacture, and minimize waste during production.

When Wire Feedthroughs Make Sense

Engineers who work with pressure and vacuum chambers usually reach for off-the-shelf sealed bulkhead connectors when they need to pass power and signal wires through the chamber wall. And while these connectors may seem like the best or only way to breach the chamber walls, they can actually drive cost, impose unnecessary mechanical design constraints and trigger electrical problems. So what’s the alternative? Wire feedthroughs hermetically sealed with epoxy.

Windows CE Development for RISC Computers Made Easy

Windows CE (a.k.a. Windows Embedded Compact), originally released in 1996, can be an attractive alternative to the full Windows operating system offering system designers the ability to control power, size, and cost in a new product. For example, the runtime license cost of the CE operating system alone can save as much as $150 over the license cost for standard Windows.

Guidelines for Ensuring PCB Manufacturability

The rules of PCB design have changed little over the years, but the demands on the boards themselves keep increasing. The need for smaller, more complex boards used in smartphones, tablets, and other handheld devices translates into less real estate for greater functionality.

Thermally Conductive Epoxies Optimize Electronic Assemblies

The use and selection process of thermally conductive epoxies can make or break your application. Too much heat can lead to component malfunction or prematurecomponent failure while the inability to stay below specified temperature limits may result in irreversible damage and permanent performance shifts. Master Bond’s white paper compiles the most important considerations for the selection of epoxies for efficient thermal management.
