New NX LEDS from CREE. NX LED assemblies applications Under conditions of competitive and fast growing market of LED lighting manufacturers are forced to constantly improve the performance of luminaires and update the lineup. In 2017 CREE announced a new NX LED technology platform which continues the trend of increasing light flux density and improving LED performance.
From PIC16F877 to PIC16F18877: twenty years of PIC microcontrollers evolution The article discusses key features and compares critical characteristics of different generations of Microchip’s PIC microcontrollers. Particular attention is paid to new solutions implemented in the latest generation of these chips PIC16F18877.
On the prevention of electrochemical migration in printed circuit boards of avionics The article presents the investigation of moisture condensation conditions on a printed circuit board with subsequent running of electrochemical migration process leading to the formation of parasitic bridges between conductors. The method is proposed for preventing this phenomenon by introducing the layer to the board structure that performs its controlled heating. The results of the tests are presented.
Radio-electronic equipment of space vehicles: simulation and thermal analysis The article presents the results of research based on numerical methods of thermal conditions of onboard radio-electronic equipment intended for operation in nonpressurized modules of space vehicles. It is shown that the introduction of additional copper layers into the structure of multilayer printed circuit boards provides the temperature values met the specification of heat-stressed components.
