United Electronic Industries Inc. announced its new DNA-QUAD-604, a 4-channel quadrature encoder input board available for its cube-based data acquisition and control systems. The new board has a maximum input frequency of 16.5 MHz, 32-bit counters, a 32-bit prescaler and inputs for A, B and Z standards.
The board has four additional digital inputs and eight digital outputs, which may be used as auxiliary digital I/Os or set up as trigger in/out or clock out for each channel. UEI provides software drivers for most standard software applications, programming languages and operating systems, and is connected externally through a standard 37-pin D connector.

Two researchers from Cornell University have won a $100,000 grant from NASA to continue work to develop an energy-harvesting robotic eel the space agency aims to use to explore oceans on one of the moons of Jupiter.
Is the factory smarter than it used to be? From recent buzzwords, you’d think we’ve entered a new dimension in industrial plants, where robots run all physical functions wirelessly and humans do little more than program ever more capable robotics. Some of that is actually true, but it’s been true for a while.
