USB Interface Simplifies Sensor Connection
Features 10/21/2010 Post a comment Industrial systems designers and integrators are learning that the familiar USB connection can simplify sensor platform architecture, reduce single-to-noise ratio issues, and ease sensor validation concerns.
Robotic CNC Designed for Radioactive Vessel Repair
Features 10/21/2010 Post a comment Executing sophisticated geometries of motion, while performing between up to 50 machining processes 30 feet under water to a tolerance of plus or minus three thousandths of an inch were key requirements for this robotic CNC machine tool.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
