SOFTWARE/HARDWARE: DALSA Corp. launched four new models in the Falcon high performance area scan camera family. Three of the color models are part of DALSA’s Falcon High Gain (HG) series, and one is part of its extended dynamic range (XDR) series. With the high resolution and speed of these new Falcon cameras, machine vision systems can be created to inspect more products, in more detail, in a shorter amount of time.
With these new models, the Falcon series of machine vision cameras enables color inspection, along with fast frame rates, excellent image quality, and Global shutter CMOS technology. There are three resolutions in the High Gain (HG) series, the Falcon 1.4M100 HG at 1.4 megapixels, the 1M120 HG at 1 megapixel, and the VGA300 HG at VGA resolution. In addition, DALSA offers a Falcon 1.4M100 XDR, (extended dynamic range) version for applications where image quality is absolutely critical.
Evaluation units of these cameras are available now, with volume quantities available by early Q3.
We looked at a number of sources to determine this year's greenest cars, from KBB to automotive trade magazines to environmental organizations. These 14 cars emerged as being great at either stretching fuel or reducing carbon footprint.
Healthcare might seem to be an unlikely target application for the Internet of Things technology, but recent developments show small ways that big-data is going to make an impact on patient care moving into the future.
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
