Made for a number of industrial communications applications such as servo system platforms and motion control, the microcontroller comes with two ARM 946E cores, two CAN channels, two 10/100 Mbit Ethernet MACs with HW extension for real-time protocols, and motion control logic capability. It is versatile, with the EUROS real-time operating system built in to operate the ARMs independently. The MAC ports support real-time protocols over Ethernet through hardware extensions. The microcontroller also has an integrated complex-motion control block that can run any electronic motor right from the IC. It is designed to keep power dissipation so low it doesn't need heatsinks or fans.
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.
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.
