AeroVironment Inc. announced that a recent outdoor test flight of a solar-powered prototype version of the company’s proven Puma AE™ small unmanned aircraft system (UAS), operating with the company’s newest long-endurance battery, lasted 9 hours, 11 minutes – significantly longer than the flight endurance of small UAS being used in the field today. AeroVironment is working with Alta Devices, a Sunnyvale, CA company that provides flexible, portable power that can be embedded into any other material, in the development of the solar Puma AE.
The LPKF Group announced that based on preliminary figures it achieved year-on-year revenue growth of 39% to EUR 70 million in the first half of 2013. Earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) after six months are expected to come in at EUR 15 million, which would represent an EBIT margin of 22%.
Vishay Precision Group Inc. announced that its Vishay Foil Resistors (VFR) brand has released a new video that compares the stability and accuracy of three different current sense precision resistor technologies used in solar panels: thick film, metal band, and next-generation Bulk Metal® Z-Foil. The short video demonstrates how an increase in ambient temperature results in a change in accuracy and stability in thick film and metal band resistors; but has no effect on the Z-Foil resistor.
