Latest from National Semiconductor (www.national.com) is a new Webench® Signal-Path Designer toolset that can create 8-, 10-, and 12-bit data converter/amplifier combinations. More than 10,000 optimized signal-path solutions are available in the Webench environment, the company says, which was designed to eliminate the need for a designer to perform hand calculations. The company adds that it will roll out 1.5 giga-samples for second single and dual analog-to-digital converters later in the summer. To see the tool create an optimized 12-bit, 1 mega-samples per second signal path in 2 min, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/4394-538.
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.”
