In a span of 20 minutes, 20 F-18 fighter jets took off and landed on the USS Theodore Roosevelt aircraft carrier, in a powerful display of military precision and efficiency. The nuclear-powered warship, leading a carrier strike group, was conducting what the US military called routine training in the disputed South China Sea on Tuesday, headed for a port call in the Philippines, a defence treaty ally. The United States is not alone in carrying out naval patrols in the strategic waterway, where Chinese, Japanese and some Southeast Asian navies operate, possibly increasing tensions and risking accidents at sea. "We have seen Chinese ships around us," Rear Admiral Steve Koehler, the strike group commander, told a small group of reporters on board the three-decade-old carrier. "They are one of the navies that operate in the South China Sea but I would tell you that we have seen nothing but professional work out of the ships we have encountered."

Panasonic develops high precision thin film chip resistor 23.3.2018 DNA: Recent Columns
Panasonic corporation has developed a 0402 size, high precision thin film chip resistor that achieves the most robust electro-static discharge (ESD) protection in resistor field.   Mass production is planned to start from June 2018. The resistor will help increase accuracy and decrease ESD risk in the power supply units and automotive electronic control units (ECUs), industrial robots, etc.   The need for anti-ESD design in ECUs has been growing with the ever-increasing use of electronics in vehicles. In addition, along with the development of autonomous vehicles as well as environment friendly vehicles that feature improved fuel efficiency, ECUs have become increasingly compact and accurate.   For this reason, compact, high precision, and high anti-ESD performance resistors are required for such ECUs. The thin film chip resistor, which achieves the industry's most robust ESD protection while remaining compact and high precision, has been developed based on Panasonic's proprietary thin film formation ...
