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.
While fiber optic connectors and equipment are not quite a new form of technology, they have found increasing popularity and implementation in recent years through widespread adoption across many industries and applications. In order to install fiber optics within various settings and systems, adapters may be required in order to establish connections. As there are a variety of panels, systems, and components that fiber optic connectors may be paired with, there are multiple adapter types that one may choose from. To help you find the perfect solution for your applications, we will discuss the main types of fiber optic adapters that you may choose from.
Thermistors, or thermally sensitive resistors, are ceramic semiconductors that are capable of exhibiting a resistance change in response to shifts in temperature. Commonly used as temperature sensors for applications ranging from refrigerators to aerospace applications, thermistors are an important component for countless systems. To help you better understand the functionality of thermistors, their types, and their benefits, we will discuss them more in detail in this blog.
Electronics have quickly become the backbone of countless processes in our daily lives, allowing us to easily communicate over long distances, improve work productivity, have instant access to news, and so much more. Despite electronics coming in various shapes and forms, almost all rely on conductor and cable components that ensure their proper functionality. These components, alongside many other electronic parts, are often sensitive to strain which results from bending, pulling, tugging, or sheathing. As strain can quickly degrade the health of various components, it can be very useful to have a basic understanding of cable strain relief and protection.
While many are familiar with how peripherals such as mice and keyboards may be used to control a single computer, some may not know that such devices can extend control over multiple computers simultaneously. Commonly being relied on for data centers, the simultaneous management of multiple devices can permit a more efficient workflow if the same task needs to be conducted for multiple devices. To make such control possible, a hardware device known as a KVM switch is used.
While wireless internet and network connectivity has become widespread and commonly used by many, ethernet switches still remain an integral part of most data networks. As the most common form of network switch, ethernet switches may range in size with small to large variations being available, and they are also found in industrial control settings where they can excel with their robust performance qualities. In this blog, we will go over ethernet switches and how they assist the various networking devices and electronic hardware that they are implemented in.
Switches are extremely commonplace electronic devices, allowing for control to be assumed over a system in order to actuate various processes, switch between power modes, and much more. The rocker switch in particular is a very popular form of switch featuring a mechanism that may rock between two or more positions when actuated. Also known as see-saw switches, rocker switches will often have a side raise when another is depressed, allowing it to visually and mechanically alter between two states with a central pivot point. Depending on one’s particular needs and the application in question, there are a number of rocker switch types that may be used.
