ETX CPU board compatibility with PC/104 I/O module expansion
This system supports Access I/O's line of USB and PC/104 I/O modules. The motherboard/baseboard is only 120 mm across, and comes with right-angle mounted connectors such as VGA, RS-232, four USB 2.0 ports, PS/2 mouse and keyboard, and Ethernet. It allows PC/104 I/O module expansion, plus it can use any ETX CPU board. The NANO also comes with supplemental onboard I/O connectors for flat-panel support, IDE, Compact Flash, and an extra RS-232/422/485-selectable serial port. A 12-pin power connector can hook up to any ATX power supply. It can be mounted into various custom chassis, and can work with PC/104 I/O modules stacked in the system as a complete and small data acquisition system, but it can also be a stand-alone computer, or a USB I/O server. It costs $229 for the motherboard alone. OEM and volume pricing are available.
Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
