8 New and Notable Composite Technologies for Planes & Cars
Engineering Materials 1/7/2016 11 comments Cars and planes continue to be at the forefront of composites R&D, as well as the implementation of composites in volume manufacturing. In this crop of new products and use cases, we've got more examples of the use of composites in production car models -- and they're not all those tiny little city EVs.
Choosing the Right Weight-Saving Option for EMI Shielding & Thermal Management
Blog 1/6/2016 Post a comment As consumer, commercial, and industrial electronics continue to shrink, run faster, and have higher performance levels, EMI shielding, weight reduction, and heat dissipation will continue to challenge design engineers and OEMs across the country and around the globe and require innovative board-level shielding as well as close collaboration between design and manufacturing.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
