These acrylic flowmeters have interchangeable scales
August 01, 2014
This company's 6A02 acrylic flowmeters have interchangeable direct-reading scales that are available for any one of the following: water, argon, oxygen, carbon dioxide, nitrogen and helium. Scales are mounted at the front of the flow body and are positioned and secured by a clear front-plate held in place by four screws. A low-hysteresis, multi-turn needle valve is also included. Dual scales display flowrates in both metric and English units. These flowmeters can operate up to a maximum temperature of 150F and a maximum pressure of 6.89 bars, with an accuracy of ±3%. - Dakota Instruments, Inc., Orangeburg, N.Y. www.dakotainstruments.com

A*STAR and Industry Form S$200M Semiconductor R&D Joint Labs
July 23, 2014
Public-Private Partnership to drive innovative solutions for complex micro chip manufacturing Four joint laboratories, representing a commitment of S$200m between private and public sectors, were launched today between A*STAR's Institute of Microelectronics (IME), and its 10 industry partners. The Advanced Semiconductor Joint Labs will develop and advance semiconductor technologies for future electronics markets. The industry partners involved in this international collaboration are: Applied Materials, Dai Nippon Printing, DISCO, KLA-Tencor, Mentor Graphics, Nikon, Panasonic Factory Solutions Asia Pacific, PINK, Tokyo Electron Ltd. and Tokyo Ohka Kogyo. While expectations are for smart devices to sustain a compact form factor, consumers also expect powerful performance and low power consumption. The challenge for the semiconductor industry is to meet these needs by addressing system and integration scaling in the electronics market[1]. The four joint labs in lithography, wafer level packaging (WLP), metrology and assembly, will provide an integrated platform for semiconductor R&D, starting with patterning[2], further development of 3D Integrated Circuits (IC)[3], quality control, and finally, the assembly and high-volume manufacturing of chips. Full details of the labs' capabilities are available in Annex A.
