MOTION CONTROL: Analog Devices’ Precision Analog Microcontrollers combine precision analog functions, such as high resolution ADCs and DACs, voltage reference, temperature sensor, and a host of other peripherals, with an industry-standard microcontroller and flash memory. The ADuC7xxx ARM7TDMI® family integrates 12-, 16- and 24-bit A/D converters, 12-bit DACs with Flash, SRAM, and a host of digital peripherals designed for industrial, instrumentation, medical, communications and automotive applications. The ADuC8xx series was the first to integrate true 12-bit to 24-bit analog precision, in-circuit reprogrammable Flash/EE memory, and an on-chip 8052 core.
Enabling the Future is designing prosthetic appendages modeled more like superhero arms and hands than your average static artificial limbs. And they’re doing it through a website and grassroots movement inspired by two men’s design and creation in 2012 of a metal prosthetic for a child in South Africa.
In order to keep an enterprise truly safe from hackers, cyber security has to go all the way down to the device level. Icon Labs is making the point that security has to be built into device components.
Three days after NASA's MAVEN probe reached Mars, India's Mangalyaan probe went into orbit around the red planet. India's first interplanetary mission, and the first successful Mars probe launched by an Asian nation, has a total project cost of nearly $600 million less than MAVEN's.
