Research Uncovers Silicon-Air Battery That Runs More than 1,000 Hours
Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Loss and Success: One Engineer’s Story
Without failure and loss, there is no success. Sadly, some failures and losses are greater than others. That’s certainly true of engineer and Space Race astronaut Gus Grissom.
Zephyr OS, a ‘Secure IoT RTOS,’ You Say?
It’s worth saying a word or two about IoT, if only because the air is so thick with nonsense on the subject that is it difficult to make meaningful progress without some clarification.
G Marking for Low-Voltage Electrical Products: What You Should Know
Post a comment
G marking is similar in design to European Union notified body schemes that require a higher degree of third-party oversight from accredited labs and their notified bodies. After primary focus on select product types, attention has been turned to some low-voltage electrical products as mandatory G marking items, as of July 1, 2016.
8 STEM Activities to Fight Summer Boredom
DIY candy, journeys to Mars, coding for road trips, and more. These STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) activity options will keep kids engaged this summer, from 10-minute activities to more advanced undertakings.
Is the IIoT Getting Out of Control?
The Industrial Internet of Things may be going off the deep end in connecting everything on the plant floor. Some machines, bearings, or conveyors simply don’t need to be monitored -- even if they can be.
CAD on the Run Speeds Formula One Racing
