The company is introducing steering and shift linkage solutions (MS20271 and MS20270 series) focused on the cross- and needle-bearing design. They incorporate high-strength alloy steel yokes with permanently-sealed drawn cup needle bearings and a forged cross. The joint has rigid axial stiffness for push/pull loads. A variety of hub materials are available, including alloy with or without plating, stainless steel, forged steel, and extruded aluminum.
One of the biggest walls in embedded software development is the integration of low-level drivers with higher-level middleware and application code, but silicon vendors are stepping up to bring it down.
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.
