This new software is designed to work on MIDAC's FTIR spectrometer systems. Building on the original AutoQuant software, AutoQuant Pro uses a version of the multivariate CLS algorithm created by NASA at the Kennedy Space Center to boost computational speed and performance. A new graphic user interface includes organized displays and menus for tasks ranging from setting instrument parameters to building accurate analytical methods for quantifying components of complex mixtures. The software gains a more accurate sample analysis by allowing multiple calibration points and spectra over the anticipated concentration range, which uses the point closest to the actual concentration of the sample. It also contains enhancements for CEM/CPM applications such as improved data output capability, multiple data collect options, and printable concentration charts and absorbance spectra.
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.
