DRAM Modules

DRAM modules from Innodisk Corp. (Taipai, Taiwan) feature conformal coatings that protect against moisture, dust, and chemical contaminants. The layer thickness varies from 0.03mm up to 0.13mm, depending on the demands of the application and the materials used. The coating also protects against issues caused by electrical or thermal conduction, static electricity, and heat, and observes MIL-I-46058C.

Enclosure Gaskets

Beryllium-copper fingerstock gaskets from Leader Tech (Tampa, FL) provide electrical contact between parallel seams (mating surfaces) that are created by enclosure access doors and panels. Once installed, the hardened Alloy 25 gaskets effectively shield over a broad frequency range. Leader Tech fingerstock gaskets, available in multiple plating finishes, can be cut to application-specific lengths. In addition, the wiping action of gasket fingers acts as a self-cleaning mechanism during every compression cycle.

All-Diamond Packaging Solution

In collaboration with the University of Warwick, Element Six (Santa Clara, CA) has developed an all-diamond sensor structure for electroanalytical applications. The synthetic electrode is available in a variety of geometries encapsulated in co-planar insulating diamond. Element Six’s Diafilm EA-grade electrode material features 100 percent phase purity, and the electrode presents a typical surface roughness of Ra<0.02 μm. Precisely controlled boron concentrations provide metal-like ohmic conductivity while achieving low capacitance.

Safety Laser Scanners

Omron Automation and Safety's (Schaumburg, IL) new OS32C-4M Type 3 safety laser scanners provide a 4 meter safety range, 15 meter warning zones and a 270 degree detection angle for safeguarding large robotic cells and body entry detection. They can also be mounted 4 meters high to eliminate the possibility of tampering. New pollution tolerance modes ensure safe machine operation, even in the dirtiest and dustiest application environments. All OS32C safety laser scanners provide configurable object resolutions of 30, 40, 50 and 70 mm to accommodate hand and arm detection applications. They feature a compact 104.5 mm profile, light 1.3 kg weight and consume just 5 W power (3.75 W in standby mode).

High-Speed Imaging System

Photron, Inc. (San Diego, CA) has introduced the FASTCAM Mini UX50 rugged, lightweight high-speed camera. The new, 1.3 megapixel (1,280 x 1,024 pixels) high-speed sensor operates at 2,000 frames per second (fps) at full resolution, 2,500 fps at 720 HD resolution, and up to 160,000 fps at reduced resolution. Photron’s FASTCAM Mini UX50 is compact (120 mm x 120 mm x 90 mm) and lightweight (less than 1.5 Kg). It delivers light sensitivity to ISO 12232 Ssat standards: ISO 6,400 for monochrome and ISO 5,000 for color. Three memory options are available, 4GB, 8GB, or up to16 GB for extended recording durations and triggering flexibility.

Tunable Blue Diode Laser

New Focus (Santa Clara, CA), a Newport Corporation brand, has extended its range of Littrow tunable lasers with the TLB-7102-02 Vantage(TM). The direct blue diode laser is tunable from 421 to 423 nm and ideally suited for calcium ion trapping at 422.79 nm. The power and tuning range are optimized at a user specified wavelength with a guaranteed 10 mW at 423 nm. The new Littrow-design Vantage laser has been specifically developed for atomic research labs and applications like BEC, MOT and laser cooling experiments where the wide tuning and narrow linewidth of New Focus’ premium Littman-Metcalf lasers are not always required.
