The company has introduced a four-channel entry-level version of the LMS Pimento. It is designed to combine the power of a professional portable system with a more affordable price. It covers a range of noise and vibration applications, including general-purpose data acquisition and specific modules for rotating machinery analysis. The product is ideal for manufacturers who want to quantify the noise or vibration performance of their products, and then analyze the characteristics of the products with the dynamic behavior of their designs.

Designed to increase productivity and cut costs in the critical phase of aircraft development, the Best of Breed Structure Engineering solution reportedly integrates the activities and processes required to design and manufacture structural aircraft parts and assemblies. The relational design capabilities enable early communication between design, manufacturing, and service engineering teams. It also allows manufacturers to constantly monitor performance and cost implications of design decisions. Dassault Systemeshttp://rbi.ims.ca/3847-605
SWAN, which is compatible with industry-standard design frameworks, was created to bring a new level of analysis to ultra-deep submicron CMOS technologies. It eliminates a critical barrier in the design of mixed-signal systems-on-chip by offering a means to model and analyze the substrate-noise generation. The product consists of two parts: a standard-cell library characterization and a substrate-noise waveform computation. IMEChttp://rbi.ims.ca/3847-606
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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 discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
