Mechatronics, the junction between mechanics and electronics, is making a statement in the military and aerospace industries. We see more and more components moving from strictly mechanical to purely electrical or a combination of the two.
Join Design News for a free webinar that will explore the use of mechatronics in aerospace and defense. Presenters include Mica Parks, senior application engineer at MSC Software; and Edwin Romero, product marketing manager, MCU8 Division of Microchip Technology Inc. These two experts will walk you through the emerging trends of mechatronics in the aerospace and defense industries.
Whether you're a supplier of these components or an OEM trying to design them in, this webinar is for you. The experts will discuss how and why these components are making the shift to mechatronics. They will also try to make some predictions as to when is the proper time to jump in and take advantage of the existing and/or coming technology.
Aerospace demands interdisciplinary knowlegde and mechatronics is one of the domains that integrate two important branches of knowledge. It is also important to appreciate the fact that many of the useful things that are now in daily use were invented for space exploration. So i am sure the development of mechatronic systems for aerospace and defence will find uses for the improving the quality of life of common man.
Engineers at Fuel Cell Energy have found a way to take advantage of a side reaction, unique to their carbonate fuel cell that has nothing to do with energy production, as a potential, cost-effective solution to capturing carbon from fossil fuel power plants.
This is part one of an article discussing the University of Washington’s nationally ranked FSAE electric car (eCar) and combustible car (cCar). Stay tuned for part two, tomorrow, which will discuss the four unique PCBs used in both the eCar and cCars.
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].”
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.
