Nanogenerator Sheet in Action
DNTV 2/25/2009 Post a comment A sheet containing tens of thousands of the nanogenerators could fit beneath a Blackberry's touch screen, enabling the handheld device to draw power from a user who taps a finger against it.
STM Robotic Vision System
DNTV 2/11/2009 Post a comment At the 2009 Consumer Electronics Show, STM demonstrated a robotic vision system based on its VS6724, a 2-megapixel single-chip camera module and the STR912FA ARM based 32-bit microcontroller.
Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
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.
