ELECTRONICS: GTK announced the release of its new range of latching USB “B” series products. The range comprises of PCB mount sockets and complete cable assemblies. The cable assemblies can be configured in a variety of lengths and “end” styles. This range features side-mounted squeeze latches that mate with the corresponding USB socket. To achieve full latching functionality a mated latching plug and socket must be used. The range is backwards compatible with standard USB products, but does not offer the latching feature. This product range is compliant to USB 2.0 specification enabling data transfer rates of up to 480Mbps.
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.
