Moreover, Infineon has launched its XMC4500 series, the company’s first 32-bit industrial micro- controllers using the Cortex™ M4 processor from ARM®
. Samples of the XMC4500 microcontrollers,
which will go into high-volume production in May 2012.The XMC4500 series is suited particularly for use in electric drives, solar inverters and the auto- mation of manufacturing and buildings.
he miBot manipulator by Imina Technologies is
a mobile micro-robot. The extreme high resolutions of positioning of the miBot manipulator are achieved thanks to the use of piezoelectric actuators. Now, a new video shows what the miBot makes robust and provides a better mechanical and thermal stability than larger manipulators with multiple axes.
Imina Technologies is a privately held company founded in 2009. The Company markets ten years of research in high precision robotics at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne, Switzer- land (EPFL).
onarka Technologies, Inc., announced that its next generation organic solar cells are the world’s first organic photovoltaic (OPV) which passed acce-
lerated lifetime tests based on product aging cri- teria contained in the IEC 61646. The testing was performed by German TÜV Rheinland, a leading international test institution, in its Assessment Center in Cologne. These recent advances are based upon Konarka’s inverted cell architecture, the company’s proprietary intellectual property protected under issued patents.
onica Minolta IJ Technologies, Inc. (Konica Minolta) has successfully developed a high-ac-
curacy inkjet head capable of 1-picoliter drop size, the first for printed electronics applications by utili- zing Konica Minolta‘s proprietary MEMS technologies for the first time. Sale of the new inkjet printhead in sample quantities is expected to start this spring.
The newly developed inkjet printhead “KM128SNG- MB” is a next-generation inkjet printhead manufac- tured with silicon MEMS technologies that utilizes
