We develop the key components that need to control the stream, through a new material technology that we have developed. It is called silicon carbide, says Christian Vieider, president of Ascatron. An electric car has such a large box that converts the power from the battery to the motor, which enables you to accelerate and brake. Ascatrons goal is to reduce energy loss in this conversion. They go all the time and need to convert power from the huge stack voltage to a few volts to sevrarna. Two Italian private equity firm, Quadrivio and Como Venture, and two Chinese private equity firms, Rise Leads Investment and Not Bridge Technology, enters the company.

Louis Slotin, a Canadian physicist, was showing his colleagues how to bring the exposed core of a nuclear weapon nearly to the point of criticality, a tricky operation known as tickling the dragon s tail.The tamper would reflect back the neutrons that were shooting off the plutonium, jump-starting a weak and short-lived nuclear chain reaction, on which the physicists could then gather data.As he began the slow and painstaking process of lowering the tamper, one of his colleagues, Raemer Schreiber, turned away to focus on other work, expecting that the experiment would be uninteresting until several more moments had passed.The hand eventually took on a waxy blue appearance and developed large blisters.They arrived four days after the accident.Three months to the day before Slotin s accident, Daghlian had been working with the very same plutonium core, performing a different criticality experiment that used tungsten-carbide blocks instead of the beryllium tamper.
Corsair also introduced new cooling fans based on the company s patented magnetic levitation technology, a closed-loop liquid cooler that s used on MSI s upcoming GTX 1080 card, an updated Carbide 400C case, and more.These sticks will be the company s fastest thus far thanks to carefully selected Samsung memory integrated circuits that can push memory speeds past 4,333MHz.These sticks use specially selected Samsung memory integrated circuits as well, and can be overclocked on platforms based on Intel X99 and Intel 100 chipset families.These two fans utilize an ultra-low friction magnetic bearing providing high airflow, high static pressure, and low noise at the same time.This tech keeps system builders from having to manually choose between a quiet mode when the system is idle, and a noisy mode during heated gameplay.This model is basically unchanged overall, aside from the new white finish, sporting a full-size windowed side panel, an integrated power supply cover, a front panel void of drive bays, and so on.

MoreThe headquarters of German semiconductor manufacturer Infineon are pictured in Neubiberg near Munich, Germany, January 28, 2014.FRANKFURT Reuters - German chipmaker Infineon Technologies has agreed to buy Wolfspeed Power and RF for $850 million from U.S. company Cree, betting on new energy efficient chips it expects will dominate the market in the next decade.These silicon carbide chips are expected to gradually replace conventional chips in the coming years and will be in demand for on-board charging in electric and hybrid cars, Infineon's Chief Executive Reinhard Ploss said.Chips for the automotive industry comprise almost half of Infineon's sales.The acquisition of Wolfspeed in a cash deal will immediately start boosting Infineon's adjusted earnings per share and margin, the Munich-based group said in a statement.The company has gross margins of around 55 percent and is expected to grow by an average annual rate of 20 percent until 2020.
This is the cutter head of a tunnel-boring machine as it prepares to launch on a 2.6km drive.The head is 7.1 metres across, made up of the nose cone, teeth and cutters, all of which are made of steel and tipped with tungsten carbide.Maintaining the cutter head is tricky.The airlock through which the repair crew enters the pressurised air-bubble is under the blue cover.Once the work is done the engineers have to decompress to avoid getting the bends.The tunnel borer tows a bridge, which is a trailer containing the operator s cabin, as well as up to ten sledges.

Corsair Carbide Series Air 740 ReviewUK price as reviewed : £134.99 inc VAT US price as reviewed : $149.99 ex Tax Corsair's foray into cube cases was a welcome one and the Air 240 and Air 540 both netted top awards in 2013 and 2014 when they were released thanks to unique and effective designs.In terms of size, the Air 740 isn't as tall as the Air 540, but it's deeper and wider by a centimetre or two - it is not as you might suspect, a larger version of the latter.That said, the addition of a large, hinged side window panel is a good move and helps to draw attention away from other perhaps less attractive parts of the case.
Despite studies showing that the vast majority of journeys in the US are less than 50 miles, and that the average distance per trip in the UK is going down, people worry that they'll run out of juice before getting to their destination.Well, now their fears can be alleviated, at least a little.Engineers at North Carolina State University have developed a new kind of inverter that can improve both the fuel efficiency and range of both hybrid and electric cars.Now, however, a team at the Future Renewable Electric Energy Distribution and Management Systems Center have built one using off-the-shelf components made of silicon carbide, and in tests it's showing a decent improvement over those made of plain ol' silicon."Our silicon carbide prototype inverter can transfer 99 percent of energy to the motor, which is about two percent higher than the best silicon-based inverters under normal conditions," said Iqbal Husain, who worked on the project and has co-authored two scientific papers describing it."And new advances we've made in inverter components should allow us to make the inverters even smaller still."

Even if you'd rather just watch, this German electric skateboard company has come up with a way to make a scintillating transport method even better.You re running late for work, your office is the other side of a giant frozen lake, and all you ve got to get there is a regular skateboard, a battery pack, a few dozen carbide metal studs, and a handy engineering degree.Well, the obvious answer would be to hammer together something like the amazing electric Mellow e-Iceboard, built by a team of engineers in Germany.More: Motorize your favorite scuffed-up skateboard with Mellow Ice skating was originally used as easy transportation way back when, in Spreewald, East Germany, which is sometimes known as Little Venice.'Mellow Boards team member Steven Uy told Digital Trends.
The platform itself hurts more, though—my half-decade-old system can’t partake in gloriously fast newer technologies like NVMe SSDs, USB 3.1 ports, and Thunderbolt connections.The goal was to see how the duo handles gaming at more mainstream 1080p and 2560x1440 resolutions.The 8-core, 16-thread Ryzen 7 1700 costs less than an Intel Core i7-7700K ($340 on Amazon) while packing twice as many cores and threads.It included the EKWB XLC Predator 240 closed-loop liquid cooler; Gigabyte’s Aorus AX370-Gaming 5 motherboard ($195 on Amazon); 16GB (2 x 8GB) of Corsair’s 3000MHz Vengeance LPX low-profile DDR4 RAM ($110 on Amazon); a single 256GB Intel SSD 600p Series M.2 NVMe SSD ($100 on Newegg); Corsair’s AX1200i power supply with 80 PLUS platinum efficiency ($310 on Amazon); and Corsair’s tiny Carbide 400C case ($100 on Amazon).As an i5 part, it only has four physical cores with one thread each, so it’s significantly less multithreaded than the 16-thread Ryzen chip.Next page: Performance results and thoughts
, LLC has pebbles to burn.Last week, the company announced that it has started the conceptual design phase for its Xe-100 high temperature gas-cooled (HTGR) pebble bed modular reactor.This reactor is ideal for high-temperature industrial processes such as desalination, and is modular for flexibility in power needs and applications like load-following renewables, since it can ramp up and down quickly.The complete Xe-100 power plant has a small physical footprint, only 200 meters by 100 meters with a small emergency planning zone essentially within its own gates, and a reduced water requirement which means it can be installed in a much wider range of potential locations compared to other clean energy systems.The graphite is further surrounded by a coated ceramic layer of silicon carbide for strength and containment of the fission products.Thousands of pebbles are amassed to create the reactor core, and are cooled by a gas, such as helium, nitrogen or carbon dioxide, that doesn’t chemically react with the fuel pebbles.
