Harting mounts current sensors directly onto busbars

Harting has introduced a range of current sensors which can be directly mounted on busbars.   With dimensions of 6cm in height and 14cm wide, the HCME range of current sensors measure high currents up to 5500A.  The design of the HCME sensors is based on the open-loop measurement principle. This provides a direct representation ...

TSMC expects 7nm will account for 20% of revenues next year

TSMC has  taped out ICs for an enhanced 7nm EUV process and expects 7nm to account for over 20% of sales next year.  Crypto mining weakness has caused TSMC to drop its year-end growth forecast for 2018 from 10% to between 5-9%, reports Digitimes. The forecast capex for 2018 has been revised from $11.5-12 billion ...

Printer for plasmonic structures works at room temperature

Printing nano-scale features in surfaces it difficult, according to Purdue University, particularly if the required features are smaller than the gains in the metal – the grains govern the ‘formability limit’. Sputtering metal into moulds is another route, so long at the resulting rough surface texture is not an issue. Now Purdue is claiming both ...
