Welcome to the bling-slim-thin era of electronics! Thin is in, as in always, but recent breakthroughs in printed and flexible electronics are heralding a whole new age of gadgets, imaging devices and user interfaces.
Researchers from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory are developing a new bionic leaf that can convert energy from sunlight into an energy-dense fuel, imitating the photosynthetic process of plants.
Micro-Epsilon has developed an extremely compact, lightweight laser profile scanner. Compact design, flexible installation options and versatile interfaces make the new scanCONTROL 2600/2900 laser line scanners the ideal choice for high-precision profile and dimensional measurements in production environments.
Sensirion opens up new possibilities for the wearable and mobile market with its unique chip-scale packaging technology for the humidity and temperature sensor SHTW1. Sensirion is the first company to use wafer-level chip-scale packaging technology in humidity and temperature sensors.
Air Logic Check Valves offer low “cracking pressures", less than 10" H20, and a minimal differential for forward flow. Models are available with 10-32 UNF threads or barbs for 1/16" and 1/8" I.D. flexible tubing. Maximum pressure is 75 PSI.
