Keithley Instruments Inc. (http://rbi.ims.ca/3850-508) has developed the free Nanotech Toolkit—a set of software tools that can shortcut many measurement tasks by providing common routines used in testing nanotech devices. The toolkit is compatible with Keithley's Model 4200-SCS Semiconductor Characterization System, which offers sub-femtoamp (10-15) current measurement resolution and measurement routines for testing a carbon nanotube-based transistor, a bio-component, molecular transistor, molecular wire, nanowire, and a nanocell.
Design collaboration now includes the entire value chain. From suppliers to customers, purchasing to outside experts, the collaborative design team includes internal and external groups. The design process now stretches across the globe in multiple software formats.
A new high-pressure injection-molding technology produces near-net shape parts with 2-inch-thick walls from high-performance materials like PEEK, PAI, and carbon-filled polymers. Parts show no voids, sinks, or porosity, have more consistent mechanical properties, and are stronger.
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.
