How zoomorphism can teach us to make better robots

Making more natural robots may be the answer to industrial woes

New sealed wire-to-wire connectors

These narrow units are designed for sensors, lighting, vending machines and liquid dispensers

Tiny interface for Ethernet

This is for small and mobile devices

New 3V thin prismatic supercapacitors

These offer power solutions for thin wearables, key fobs and other small IoT devices

New app for electronics projects

The free DesignSpark Toolbox offers engineering calculators, converters and tables

New transmitter

It's combined with the sensor in a single unit

New compact linear actuator

This have anti-backlash nuts

New calibration system for flow meters

This is designed for flare gas monitoring on offshore platforms and other hard to access production sites

New family of offline flyback switcher ICs

These are for where there are constraints in terms of energy, footprint and thermal performance

Robot solution for rapid food packing

Automating packaging operations is not always easy, especially where there are space constraints in place

New debugger/programmer for microcontrollers

This latest low-cost programmer delivers significantly faster debugging with added functionality and more interfaces

Grasping the next generation of robotics

Instead of using different grippers for different objects, how about a more flexible approach?

New 6 axis Inertial Measurement Unit

This is aimed at the growing virtual reality and augmented reality applications where a fast response significantly reduces the unpleasant motion sickness effect

New class of two dimensional materials

These superlattices consist of alternating layers of ultra-thin sheets. This could lead to improvements in electronics, from transistors to LEDs and ultra-efficient semiconductors

Atomically flat gallium breakthrough

Scientists at Rice University and the Indian Institute of Science, Bangalore, have discovered a method to make the material that shows promise for nanoscale electronics

New actuators and indicators

These can be mechanically connected or soldered

New alloy suited to additive manufacturing

Nickel nanoparticles placed into the liquid metal, galinstan could herald a new wave of flexible computer screens and other stretchable electronic devices
