Analog Devices' AD7142 programmable 16-bit capacitance-to-digital converter is able to adjust to rapidly changing climatic conditions, making it a candidate for touch sensing in mobile devices, such as cellular handsets, MP3 players and digital cameras. The device's power consumption is said to be 50 percent less than that of competitors, thus making it less of a current draw in battery-powered applications. For more information go to AD7142.
These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
