A new simplified model of Smart Tweezers LCR-meter is released. It has a lower price, but a bit lower accuracy and lower test signal level. Toronto, Ontario (PRWEB) February 23, 2013 A new budget version ST5L of the latest model ST5 of the world-renowned LCR-meter Smart Tweezers from Siborg Systems Inc was released. This version uses a slightly different schematics which was possible due to elimination of the 1 Volt test signal option. This allowed to use simpler schematics and fewer...

Two NASA California centers have been selected to develop new space-aged technologies that could be game-changers in the way we look at planets from above and how we safely transport robots or humans through space and bring them safely back to Earth. NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif., will use advanced compound semiconductor materials to develop new technologies for the High Operating Temperature Infrared Sensor Demonstration. The higher the temperature at which an...

Engineers from NASA's Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Md., showcased the new 18-meter Ka Band Antenna Network, the first such system in agency history, during a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the White Sands Test Facility in New Mexico on November 8. "Ka band" refers to a section within the microwave portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Much like how listeners can't pick up FM waves on AM radios and vice-versa, Ka band signals require special equipment to receive them. The three new...

NASA -- NASA's Space Technology 5 successfully launched today at 9:04 a.m. EST, from Vandenberg Air Force Base, Calif., on a Pegasus XL rocket. ST5 is testing new micro-spacecraft technologies and operations' techniques. The three spacecraft will conduct science validation using measurements of the Earth's magnetic field collected by the miniature boom- mounted magnetometers on each. Initial contact with ST5 was made at 9:27 a.m. EST, as the spacecraft passed over the McMurdo Ground Station...

NASA -- Have you ever noticed how some things just keep getting smaller and smaller? Take our cell phones or personal computers for example. Just a few years ago it would have been impossible to conveniently tuck a cell phone away in a pocket or carry around a computer that weighs less than five pounds. Now NASA's Space Technology 5 (ST5) Project is building and testing three smaller satellites called micro-satellites. These micro-sats will test and validate new technologies for future...

NASA -- Have you ever noticed how some things just keep getting smaller and smaller? Take for example our cell phones or personal computers. Just a few years ago it would have been impossible to conveniently tuck a cell phone away in a pocket or carry around a computer that weighs less than 5 lbs. Well, Goddard's Space Technology 5 (ST5) Project/Code 495 is building and testing that miniaturization concept with three small satellites. These satellites, also known as micro-sats, will test and...
