Heilind Electronics Adds Molex Robust Contrinex Inductive and Photoelectric Sensors E Heilind Electronics, a leading global distributor of electronic components and authorized dis- tributor for Molex products, has expanded its portfolio of Molex industrial automation solu- tions to include Contrinex inductive and pho- toelectric sensors. Fast Flash Programming for Microsemi FPGAs E Newly released support for Microsemi FPGAs and SoCs on ASSET InterTech's ScanWorks can dramatically decrease programming times for SPI flash memory devices to the point where inline programming on the assembly line will not disrupt the manufacturing beat rate. ASSET InterTech is a leading supplier of JTAG-based software and hardware debug, validation, and test tools. ScanWorks, one of the company's flagship product lines, is a fast test and programming platform. Innovation and Investment Are Growth Drivers for Asia's Transition to Clean Energy E Over 180 thought leaders shed light on cur- rent and future developments for minimizing the impact and implications of climate change at the recently concluded Asia Clean Energy Summit (ACES), hosted by the Sustainable En- ergy Association of Singapore (SEAS). Future of Laser Innovations Discussed at Revamped ICALEO Conference E The Laser Institute of America's (LIA's) 38 th In- ternational Congress on Applications of Lasers and Electro-Optics (ICALEO) was recently held in Orlando, Florida, and featured the confer- ence's many firsts. A meeting of laser industry experts and decision-makers from around the world, the event hosted dialogue with a deeper industry focus, more expansive technical ses- sions, and a new business conference that ad- dressed laser end-users while highlighting so- lutions from the manufacturing community.
