Model-Based Design for Automation
Features 12/9/2010 Post a comment For OEMs, modularity of systems is not yet a widely deployed factor in the product development cycle. To make systems reuse a part of the design strategy, self-documenting simulation models can help sustain inter-departmental know-how and reduce time to market.
Sample, Convert Simultaneously
Features 12/7/2010 Post a comment When you must digitize signals simultaneously, remember the difference between simultaneous sampling and simultaneous conversion. Manufacturers don't always make it clear.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
