This seems like a revolutionary idea to create such a force on materials to test them for strength, but in a way it also makes perfect sense. I can't think of a more effective way to see how strong something is--in various aspects of life--than to exert extreme pressure on it. And it seems like the scientists feel the same way.
Just when you thought mobile technology couldn’t get any more personal, Procter & Gamble have come up with a way to put your mobile where your mouth is, in the form of a Bluetooth 4.0 connected toothbrush.
MCU manufacturers have become excellent sources for information you can use to get a head start on your next design. In addition to the normal data sheets and evaluation boards, MCU manufacturers also often provide complete reference designs -- working designs that establish a proven baseline for creating your own custom design.
