- 7/22/2016 MLCC sits between NP0/C0G and Z7R in size and stability
Kemet is aiming at timing, filtering and phase-locked loops (PLLs) with a ceramic capacitor that has double the capacitance of CoG/NP0 types. Made to meet the U2J specification, the family has a linear -750±120ppm/șC temperature coefficient – compared to zero for C0G/NP0 and non-linear for X7R – and works from -55 to +125șC. “It also provides ...
- 7/22/2016 Discovery means robot centipedes go fast and turn quickly
Deepening understanding of centipede walking could improve robot locomotion, according to the University of Kyoto, which has been studying centipede movement for years. Its latest finding is that being on the point of instability balances straight-line and turning performance in multi-legged robots. The questions the researchers set themselves was: with all the friction created by ...
