Guitarists want the sound of vintage gear without sacrificing the options offered by modern digital equipment. Damage Control blends them in a number of effect pedals and pre-amps powered by Analog Devices’ Sharc. The TimeLine Multi-Dimensional Delay offers features like flange, vibrato, slapback, long delay and reverse delays, while the Glass Nexus combines custom modulation effects with delay and reverb, also employing dual 12AX7 tubes.
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.
