CARSON CITY, NV -- (Marketwired) -- 04/21/14 -- Ametherm today introduced new NTC chip thermistors for high-accuracy temperature measurement. Recently acquired from Measurement Specialties, the devices are available in a wide range of resistance values, with precision tolerances to 1 % and fast thermal response times.
Providing designers with an alternative to thermocouples in precision circuits, the NTC chip thermistors deliver high stability and maximum sensitivity for temperature measurement, compensation, and control in applications such as fan motor controls, fluid levels, and temperature sensors in a wide range of end products.
Measuring 1.27 mm by 1.27 mm with profiles from 0.5 mm to 3.8 mm, the devices feature resistance at 25 degrees C from 100 ohms to 500 kilohms, a wide range of TCR values, and high-temperature operation to + 150 degrees C. The NTC chip thermistors offer a dissipation constant of 2 mw/ degrees C and thermal time constants down to 2 s. RoHS-compliant, the leaded components are available in epoxy-coated and uncoated configurations.
The devices are available direct or through distributors such as Digi-Key, Mouser, Dexter Magnetic Technologies, and PUI. Samples and production quantities of the NTC chip thermistors are available now, with factory lead times of six weeks.

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps become...

We certainly live in interesting technological times. And no more interesting than the current competing IoT standards for connectivity. Various standards bodies, approaches, and ecosystems are vying for mindshare and positioning for a competitive edge. It is clear that when the dust settles, we will have new protocols, evolved protocols, that will change the way we interact with devices and infrastructure. We will also have evolved web protocols, like HTTP/2, that will be changing the very core...

The cloud has transformed how we think about software quality. Instead of preventing failures, we must focus on automatic recovery from failure. In other words, resilience trumps traditional quality measures. Continuous delivery models further squeeze traditional notions of quality. Remember the venerable project management Iron Triangle? Among time, scope, and cost, you can only fix two or quality will suffer. Only in today's DevOps world, continuous testing, integration, and deployment upend...

The Internet of Things is a misnomer. That implies that everything is on the Internet, and that simply should not be - especially for things that are blurring the line between medical devices that stimulate like a pacemaker and quantified self-sensors like a pedometer or pulse tracker. The mesh of things that we manage must be segmented into zones of trust for sensing data, transmitting data, receiving command and control administrative changes, and peer-to-peer mesh messaging. In his session a...
