  • Flight Controller

    Now that you have chosen or designed a UAV frame, chosen the appropriate motors, propellers, ESCs and battery, you can start looking into choosing a flight controllers. A rc flight controller for a multi-rotor UAV is an integrated circuit normally made up of a microprocessor, sensors and input/output pins. Out of the box, a quadcopter controller does not magically know your specific UAV type ...

  • XRF and the challenge of miniaturization in electronics packaging

    When Jack Kilby demonstrated the first working integrated circuit back in 1958 his main priority was miniaturization. The invention of the transistor in 1948 meant that computers no longer had to rely on large sized, thermally inefficient vacuum tube technology. The race to see just how small ICs could get had started. Since Jack’s day, semiconductor devices have become ...

  • Prosperity Years 1951-1953 - Part 4 Teledyne Hastings History

    The early part of the 1950’s was prosperous for Hastings due in part to the demand for the Raydist and large military contracts as a result of the Korean War.
