The ANCER™ for Corrosion/Erosion Protection on Copper Micro Channel Coolers

Advanced Cooling Technologies (ACT) has developed a vapor deposited ANCER™ (Applied Nanoscale Corrosion Erosion Resistant) coating which has shown to provide superior protection of copper Micro Channel Coolers (MCCs) from catastrophic erosion/corrosion failure while cooling laser diodes. In this webinar, you will learn how corrosion and erosion effects can seriously impact MCC performance. You’ll learn how the thin, conformal ANCER™ coating offers a cost effective solution to extend the life of the copper microchannel coolers, even under relaxed DI water operating parameters. You will also see how the coating may be extended to provide corrosion resistance in other materials, such as aluminum. The webinar will be of value to thermal and mechanical engineers who are facing thermal and corrosion life challenges of their products.

Virtual Fit-Ups: How to Eliminate Rework with 3D Measurement

When replacing equipment or components achieving accurate measurements can be very challenging, especially if the unit is still being used. A solution to this challenge is implementing portable CMM’s, such as laser trackers, to conduct virtual fit-ups. Conducting virtual fit-ups (ensuring parts will fit mating parts) allows for early verification of critical dimensions during disassembly. Stop wasting time and money on rework and get it done right the first time!

Selecting Litz Wire to Increase Energy Efficiency

Many debate the most cost effective way to generate energy, but all agree that gains in efficiency when possible are the best way to save. When building high field strength/high frequency power devices, Litz should be considered. In devices such as motors, generators, high frequency power inductors, wireless power transfer, and inductive heating, Litz can be used to considerably lower the cost of energy ownership.

Rad-Hard PM Optical Fibers for Space Gyro Application

              Optical fiber gyroscopes for space require a small form (for tight winding), small beat length (for high extinguishing ratio) and radiation hardness. Here we demonstrate an optical fiber specialized for space gyro applications, combining our expertise in optical waveguide design, optical material design and manufacture, optical measurement, and modeling of complex degradation and failure phenomena.

FMC and VPX Enable Rapid Development of Embedded Products

The VMEbus has been the standard of embedded system design for three decades. In the defense industry, for instance, it is typically used for such applications as signal acquisition and processing. As FPGA technology has advanced to feature improved analog-to-digital and digital-to-analog devices, new industry standards, better I/O, more memory, additional DSP options and more efficient power usage, a move to the next generation of VMEbus-based systems has been necessary to make the best use of those resources.

SansEC: Electrical Sensors with No Electrical Connections

SansEC is a NASA-developed wireless sensor technology that is damage tolerant and requires no electrical connections. Unlike other sensors, a SansEC sensor can be designed for measurements unrelated to each other - like temperature and fluid level - and easily switch from one to another or do both simultaneously.
