Automotive connectors are useful devices for facilitating electrical connections within a vehicle. As an abundance of electronic components are added to modern automotive for things like included safety features, environmental protection, and smart technology, more automotive connectors are used as well. The following blog provides a brief introduction to automotive connectors and highlights key characteristics about them. With this knowledge, automotive engineers, owners, and operators can get a better sense of the role and importance of these devices.

Winches are common mechanical devices that may be found on the back of a truck or in an industrial setting, and they are used to pull in and let out rope through the use of a spool and hand crank. Despite being designed to be very rigorous and reliable, winches will eventually reach the end of their service life as electrical or mechanical failure occurs. While mechanical failure is a possibility, it is much more unlikely than electrical failure. Contactors and solenoids are two components that may be found within a winch assembly, and both are known for being more vulnerable to failure when faced with stress or damage. In this blog, we will discuss the difference between contactors and solenoids, allowing you to better determine what is needed for your various operations as winches may only take one or the other.

The engine of an aircraft is what makes it so powerful, and it is the reason why modern aircraft like the Boeing 777-300s or the Airbus A330 can reach such high speeds. Also referred to as the aero-engine, the engines we equip our aircraft with, such as the F6-80E engine or the GE90-115B engine, are complex and fascinating. Here are a few interesting things you might not know about aero-engines.

Memory forensics is the analysis of volatile data available in the temporary memory storage of a computer while the computer is still running. Memory forensics is also referred to as memory analysis, and it is usually conducted by IT security professionals for identifying and investigating malicious behavior and malware attacks that are otherwise not easily trackable.

Optoelectronics is a subcategory of electronics concerned with light-detecting or light-emitting devices. Optoelectronics are a rapidly developing field of technology that involves using electronic devices for detection, sourcing, and the manipulation of light energy for generating useful results. More than that, optoelectronic devices are transducers, which means that they can convert one form of energy to another, usually electrical energy into light, and vice versa.

Bearings are mechanical elements that provide rotational motion while reducing friction between moving parts. They are available in a variety of types, depending on one’s operational requirements. For instance, they may be acquired based on the motions your operations allow or the direction of loads applied to your assembly. As such, there are six common types of bearings that function on different principles, all of which will be outlined below.

In the world of computer memory, there are two broad categories: RAM and cache. As most people are familiar with, RAM is a high-capacity storage modality that holds data about programs currently in use. On the other hand, cache data can be used to store data that can quickly be retrieved in the future. In this blog, we will discuss everything you need to know about high-performing cache memory.

Countless assemblies require bearings or bushings of some kind to ensure that certain components maintain smooth rotation or resist vibration and shock imposed by outside stressors. In this blog, we will be providing a brief overview of each, allowing you to better understand their respective roles, varying types, and common materials. First, it is important to distinguish bearings and bushings from one another, as they are often conflated.
