Isolating high-speed data interfaces

Technology Update: Choosing the right isolator requires knowing system requirements and which high-speed interface meets the requirements for isolating their signal paths using digital isolators.

Crane controls help make energy from waste

Application Update: Olmsted County increased the energy processed at its waste-to-energy facility by doubling the amount of refuse they burn every day with integration of updated drives, motors, and controls.

Magnets, sensors create paths for automated guide vehicles

Application Update: An automated guided vehicle (AGV) can be built with as little as two components: A magnetic guide sensor and a dual-channel motor controller.
