Paper Flexpeaker

Taiwanese researchers at ITRI have produced a flexible paper speaker and aim to have them ready for next year, with the price down to around $20 per 8.5-inch by 11-inch sheet. The speaker is made by layering thin electrodes and a prepolarized diaphragm between two thin sheets of paper. Their first application, they hope, is to use the Flexpeaker in cars as soon as next year. Then, movie posters, with the soundtrack or movie trailer highlights playing as folks walk by. The frequency response is only 500Hz to 200kHz so these speakers are mainly meant for commercial applications.

Platinum Tools EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod

Our new EZ-RJPRO Termination Pod is designed for the professional installer providing everything he needs for consistent, repeatable terminations and overall quicker and easier installations," explained John Phillips, Platinum Tools, Inc. product manager. "This heavy duty kit is the perfect solution when working with both delicate as well as high performance, larger OD cables that are tougher to terminate due to larger wire gauges, thicker, harder insulation on the conductors and pair separating splines. Not only will you overcome these connectivity obstacles but you can be assured that every termination will meet FCC specifications.
