Semiconductor devices in harsh conditions

This booklet introduces the reader to a couple of demanding situations for the operation of digital units in quite a few harsh environmental stipulations. whereas a few chapters concentrate on measuring and realizing the results of those environments on digital elements, many additionally suggest layout suggestions, even if in number of fabric, leading edge constructions, or innovations for amelioration and service.

Practical guide to water-blown cellular polymers

Mobile polymers or foamed polymers are an enormous department of plastics and are a necessary a part of way of life. the various significant sectors of use are bedding, car, development building, furnishings, sound/thermal insulation, and packaging. as a result of growing to be international matters in regards to pollution, study has ended in the attention-grabbing thought of utilizing water because the sole blowing agent to create mobile foams in its place to conventional petroleum-based blowing brokers (which give a contribution to air pollution).
