In what may be a growing trend, Del-Tron Precision has presented its entire linear bearing product line in movable 3D images and downloadable CAD models on its website. The 3D and CAD functions enable visitors to its website to pan, rotate, and zoom in on any of the company's linear bearing products, and even directly insert product CAD models into their own drawings without downloading. Visitors may download a 3D model in one of about 100 different formats. For more info and to view Del-Tron Precision's products in 3D, go to www.deltron.com or to www.CADRegister.com, an online resource that provides downloadable CAD models from different manufacturers.
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.
