Dear Electronics Colleague:

The apex of any pit master's repertoire when it comes to smoking meat is the beef brisket (ok maybe a full pig is true top). Always different in shape and fat content and requiring infinite patience this piece of meat takes time to smoke consuming 12 hours or more from start to finish. The brisket ended up having a nice crunchy bark, was juicy on the inside thanks to an injection of beef bouillon and featured a 5-6 cherry infused smoke ring.  

Happy Graduation to my son who is headed off to Georgia Tech to try his hand at mechanical engineering!

        

Please "save the date" (October 1, 2015) for this years' Tech Symposium

(featuring some wonderful national speakers such as Chrys Shea, Dr Ron Lasky and Paul Wood and other others along with good food and bocci ball!). This years' theme is on microelectronic assembly. To find out more or sign-up click here.

As a special treat we will also have a tutorial on how to preform a design of experiments.  Something that will help you in your job as a process engineer.

Remember, you can get your FREE IPC-A610 tabs here:



Have a great summer!

High Temp Wire HotDots(TM) Hold Wires in Place 


 

These HotDots(TM) come in handy for holding jumper and other wires on-to a printed circuit board. They are simply peeled from an array of HotDots on a backing material and then through the use of pressure, get applied to the wire and board. The unique aspect of these hold down stickers is that the adhesive and the material can survive reflow cycles. See the complete set of sizes here.

Self Healing Asphalt

Self Healing Asphalt


Paved roads are nice to look at, but they're easily damaged and costly to repair. Erik Schlangen demos a new type of porous asphalt made of simple materials with an astonishing feature: When cracked, it can be "healed" by induction heating. They are also quiet!

Trivia Contest
July 2015

 

Shandra from VarioSystems Inc. was the first to answer last month's trivia question regarding  who worked with Raffy serving as a crew member on a smuggling ship.  The answer was: Janks. There were a total of 21 people who entered for the light saber drawing from last month (sounds like the question was too easy!). This months' prize includes (3) collector edition Star Wars Pez dispensers.

In anticipation of the new Star Wars movie (see latest trailer from the Force Awakens here) being released, we will continue to offer Star Wars prizes for all of the monthly winners this year. At the end of the year, all winners (right answer within (1) day of the question coming out, not just that months' winner) will be eligible to win a working light saber.  

Question for July 2015:
(Note-the questions have been too easy! Get out your physics book!) 

A storm trooper rolls a round robot bomb down the incline of a jet wing aimed at a bunch of rebels. It has a mass of 4 kg and a  moment of inertia of 1.6  and circumference of 6.28 m. It rolls without slipping. The incline of the wing is  10 meters high. What is the speed of the bomb when it reaches the bottom of the incline?
