This range of modules are suitable for use worldwide, running on the 2.4 GHz ISM band with FCC and R&TTE compliance. The same modules work both in NTSC and PAL video formats, and can transmit and receive wideband audio or video signals over a range up to 100m. The modules integrate audio/video input together with no external circuitry. They come with four selectable channels for video or stereo audio with output power up to 10 mW, 10 dBm compliant with European regulations. They measure 30.6 x 28.6 x 3.7 mm for the transmitter and 40.64 x 30.68 x 6 mm for the receiver, and have 55 and 140mA power consumption respectively from 5V supplies. They have an operating temperature of -10 to 60C, an operating frequency range from 2400 to 2483 MHz, and offer stable frequency selection with a four-channel, phase locked loop synthesizer. They cost $15.50 for the transmitter and $22.50 for the receiver.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
