With Pelagic's advanced computer system and wireless technology, divers can find out how much air they have left without being concerned about how much battery power is left for the measuring system. The computer receives air pressure and nitrogen-oxygen mix information via a wireless signal from sensors on up to three dive tanks and displays the data on the heads-up display at the bottom of the DataMask. To obtain an ultra-low power MCU and extend the product's operating life, Pelagic engineers chose Texas Instruments' MSP430. In addition to low 50-nA pin leakage, the unit has on-chip peripherals optimized for precision sensing and measurements. Get more information on Texas Instruments' MSP430 microcontrollers.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
