The PicoScope 2105 scopes are handheld oscilloscope probes that hook up via a USB 1.0 or 2.0 port, and only need free PicoScope software to work on any laptop or desktop PC. They can display signals from 100mV to 20V, and equivalent time sampling enhances the sample rate for measuring continuous signals. They have a large 24k sample buffer and fast 100MS/s sampling. Drivers are available for situations such as C, VB, Delphi, LabView, and VEE. An entry-level version of the scope, the PicoScope 2104, is also available.
Conventional wisdom holds that MIT, Cal Tech, and Stanford are three of the country’s best undergraduate engineering schools. Unfortunately, when conventional wisdom visits the topic of best engineering schools, it too often leaves out some of the most distinguished programs that don’t happen to offer PhD-level degrees.
Airbus Defence and Space has 3D printed titanium brackets for communications satellites. The redesigned, one-piece 3D-printed brackets have better thermal resistance than conventionally manufactured parts, can be produced faster, cost 20% less, and save about 1 kg of weight per satellite.
A group of researchers at the Seoul National University have discovered a way to take material from cigarette butts and turn it into a carbon-based material that’s ideal for storing energy and creating a powerful supercapacitor.
