UGS, announced ABAQUS, Inc., has selected 2D Dimensional Constraint Manager (2D DCM) component software from their D-Cubed subsidiary for use in ABAQUS/CAE. Using geometric dimensions and constraints, D-Cubed's 2D DCM component "sketcher" software will provide a constraint-based sketching environment, significantly enhancing its usability and parametric modeling capabilities. The robust, industry-tested solution is a compelling economic alternative to resource-intensive in-house development that can free their resources for development tasks that focus on their own areas of expertise.

Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
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.
