Integrated Sensor System Improves Tire Pressure Monitoring
To build a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS), automotive suppliers need to seamlessly squeeze a microcontroller, transmitter and three kinds of sensors onto the valve of a tire. Thanks to a new product that packs all of those components into a single electronic package, they may now be able to do that more easily. Read More

Case Study: Flexible Product Demands Flexible HandlingIn partnership with Bishop Wisecarver
A good deal of ingenuity was needed to design a handling and assembly system for 9.84 foot long washing machine hosing. Heller Automation had to provide the necessary operational flexibility needed by this application right up to the packaging station. It required a complete integrated package that was cost effective in design and build time.

Resistor Noise Can be Deafening, and Hard to ReduceIn Partnership with Analog Devices
It may not be the amplifier causing the trouble, analyze where the noise is actually coming from. Remarkably often the problem is not the amplifier, though, but the thermal noise generated by one of more of the three resistors that set the amplifier gain and provide bias current compensation.

What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
