The Texas Instruments Sensors & Controls group has introduced a low-cost, hermetically sealed pressure transducer/transmitter, available in both 4-20 mA or voltage outputs. With electromagnetic compatibility (EMC) protection at levels to 100 V/m, the transducer also features vibration tolerance rated at 20g (up to 1 kHz), a wide operating temperature range of -40 to 135C, and pressure ranges from 50 to 750 psi. Applications include medical systems monitoring and pneumatics, HVAC regulators and compressors, pumps and flow systems used in process industries, and hydraulics for off-road vehicles.

These new 3D-printing technologies and printers include some that are truly boundary-breaking: a sophisticated new sub-$10,000, 10-plus materials bioprinter, the first industrial-strength silicone 3D-printing service, and a clever twist on 3D printing and thermoforming for making high-quality realistic models.
Ear-based heart-rate monitoring gained momentum recently, as sensor maker Valencell Inc. announced it has licensed its biometric earpiece technology to Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd for use in so-called “hearable devices.”
