Pioneer Electronics USA Inc. is offering three receivers that augment conventional inputs with both Sirius and XM Satellite Radio and the seemingly ubiquitous iPod docking station. A 180 MIPS Processing DSP from Freescale provides 5.1 surround sound for movies and XM broadcasts. The chip also enables Multi-Channel Acoustic Calibration, which automatically tunes the system to account for the layout of the listening area. The VSX line can also replicate surround sound with all speakers in front of listeners, eliminating the need for rear speaker wiring.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
