Ivex Design International recently launched their Knowledge Base web site. The database has frequently asked questions about the company's Windows(reg)-based EDA software, as well as downloads of demo versions of WinBoard PCB, WinDraft Schematic Capture, Spectra Autorouter, and other CAD software. Their tech support center on the site offers bug and workaround documentation for their software, as well as application tips in the Better Route newsletter at www.ivex.com
At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
