The new AM Air Monitoring System from MIDAC (www.midac.com) can detect, identify, and measure a wide range of compounds simultaneously within seconds. This compact interferometer measures at just 8 × 14 × 8 inches, weighs only 40 lbs, and can be powered by a 12V car battery, allowing for freedom of movement. Each system includes a 0.5 cm-1 resolution interferometer equipped with your choice of beamsplitter and detector, and can be used to provide detection at ppb to percent levels for hundreds of chemicals for such applications as battlefield chemical warfare analysis, civilian hazardous event response, or industrial stack and/or fenceline monitoring analysis.
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.
