The company will demonstrate Communicator 1.0 during National Manufacturing Week. The free software product is designed to enable distributed product teams to visualize, quantify and compare the company’s analysis results. Unlike static 3D viewers, Communicator allows users to understand the assumptions behind a given set of analysis results. It also allows companies that either outsource or rely on their vendors or suppliers to perform analysis, to have a means to quantify the quality of analyses performed. This is achieved through user-specified analysis quality criteria. Moldflow Corp. Booth 18035
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?
