Siemens PLM Software

Siemens PLM Software, Plano, TX, has introduced synchronous technology, a history-free, feature-based CAD modeling technology integrated into the company’s NX™ and Solid Edge® software. The technology simultaneously synchronizes geometry and rules through a decision- making inference engine. For design, it defines persistent dimensions, parameters, and design rules at the time of creation or edit, without the need for an ordered history. It also automates the implementation of planned or unplanned design changes in seconds, regardless of design orientation, and with or without a history tree. The technology allows users to reuse data from other CAD systems without remodeling. It also merges 2D and 3D environments, and automatically i8nfers common constraints and executes typical commands based on cursor position. For Free Info .

Product of the Month: Fiber-Coupled Solid State Laser

Point Source (Hamble, UK) introduces the iFLEX-Mustang, a fiber-coupled solid-state laser with on-board modulation. Using single-mode and polarization preserving fiber, the iFLEX-Mustang delivers 25mW of power with a polarization extinction ratio of greater than 100:1. With an operating wavelength of 488 or 561nm and output power (from the fiber) of 25mW, the Mustang is ideal for use in bio-medical instrumentation and specialized semiconductor metrology. The unit’s power can be modulated at up to 2MHz, with a rise and fall time of 150ns and a dynamic range of 30dB. The Mustang is stable to better than 2% over four hours, and has noise of less than 0.3% over the frequency range 20Hz to 2MHz. A detachable fiber is included, simplifying installation and field servicing.

Laser Bars

OSRAM Opto Semiconductors (Santa Clara, CA) offers laser bars with a wavelength of 910 to 980 nm that achieve an optical output of 120W under real-world conditions and a typical efficiency of 70%. The laser bars have a 50% fill factor (the ratio of active width to overall width) and they are ideal for pumping solid-state lasers and direct material processing. OSRAM also plans to produce laser bars with wavelengths of 808 nm and 880 nm, which will deliver an efficiency of 62% at 120W. Structures with a fill factor of 20% are also available and are ideal for optical fiber coupling applications.

Remote Head Camera

Toshiba Imaging Systems Division (Irvine, CA) introduces the remote head IK-TF7H7U camera. The progressive scan model delivers true color video output of 1024 × 768 pixels at 30 frames per second at full frame and up to 90 frames per second in partial scan mode. The camera features 1/100 to 1/100,000 second electronic shuttering capability. The C-mount camera has a digital CameraLink® output for compatible interface with many standard frame grabber boards. The IK-TF7H7U weighs 65g and measures 32.6 mm × 38.6 mm × 41 mm. Two optional cable lengths of 3 and 5 meters are available. The camera is ideal for semiconductor inspection, machine vision, and other remote inspection and analysis tasks.
