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.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
