Why Choose Polymer Capacitors?

            Polymer Capacitors offer a multitude of advantages over many other capacitor technologies. With over 15 years of experience in the field, this technology has expanded to nearly every segment of the electronics industry, including military and avionics applications in recent years. As the trends for electronic components continue to move toward smaller package sizes, higher reliability and lower parasitic properties, polymer capacitors continue to gain momentum with no other capacitor technologies being able to deliver an equal level of performance.

Design of Graded Index Fiber Lenses for OCT Applications

            A fiber-optic probe, for optical coherence tomography (OCT) applications, typically includes a short section of graded index (GRIN) fiber fused onto a single-mode (SM) fiber. The GRIN fiber acts as a lens to focus the output of the SM fiber and to collect the reflected light from the sample. In this paper we use a beam propagation method (BPM) to analyze the output beam characteristics such as beam radius and working distance, and then compare these with measured results. With this tool we can design a GRIN fiber lens to achieve a long working distance without degrading the system performance.

Addressing Automotive Security with Embedded Solutions

            The increased implementation of consumer electronic features in the vehicle plus the increased interconnectivity between different control modules is expanding the vehicle security attack surface. As well, future connections to other vehicles and stationary information nodes are needed to support the future Intelligent Transportation System, which will increase the opportunity for attacks on vehicle control. As the vehicle becomes more connected, the need for security becomes critical to prevent these attacks from being successful – embedded technology can help. This presentation will focus on the latest embedded technologies developed according to the security standards needed to address these trends.
