Managing Wafer Fabrication
Features 6/27/2005 Post a comment Common methods of creating mechanical motion in wafer fabrication include servo/stepper drives, vacuum, and pneumatics. This motion becomes kinetic energy. Experts from Enidine Inc. comment on the energy control and applications.
Embedded's New Star
Features 6/6/2005 Post a comment Microcontroller manufacturers are porting it to their products; defense and aerospace engineers are adopting it; software vendors are adding real-time to it. At long last, Linux has arrived in embedded's mainstream.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
