This new software allows Windows-based PCs to directly access all Delta RMC70- and RMC100-Series motion controllers, allowing the ability to read and write registers, and the ability to read bits and issue commands, all over a serial port or Ethernet access. It has a number of sample programs and multi-language support. It works well with data acquisition and testing applications, offering Virtual Instrument components for National Instruments' LabVIEW, a common product used with RMC motion controllers in NDT and cyclical testing applications. The software offers several interfaces to work with languages such as Visual C#, Visual Basic .NET, Visual J#, Visual C++, Visual Basic 5.0/6.0, Visual Basic for Applications and LabVIEW.
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.
