Duncan Electronics' bi-directional, non-contacting torque sensor allows powertrain engineers to design an accurate torque sensor into their power conversion systems. Unlike similar existing sensors, which don't go beyond 6,000 rpm, BEITorq's goes to 17,000+ rpm and allows real-time torque monitoring with significant accuracy. Thus, it replaces high-cost laboratory-grade strain gage devices. Attributes include compact design for easy integration, long life, simplicity and accuracy in zero-speed to high-rpm applications.
Artificially created metamaterials are already appearing in niche applications like electronics, communications, and defense, says a new report from Lux Research. How quickly they become mainstream depends on cost-effective manufacturing methods, which will include additive manufacturing.
Sharon Glotzer and David Pine are hoping to create the first liquid hard drive with liquid nanoparticles that can store 1TB per teaspoon. They aren't the first to find potential data stores, as Harvard researchers have stored 700 TB inside a gram of DNA.
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.
