In the push to set standards for 10 Gbits per second technologies, Agilent Technologies has joined the Unified 10 Gbps Physical-layer Initiative (UXPi), which is promoting a specification for communication architectures that will succeed PCI Express, RapidIO and others. IBM and TI are among those who founded the group last fall. UXPi (www.uxpi.org) competes with the Multi-Level Signaling Alliance, a group that includes Alcatel and Sun Microsystems.
A new method of modeling how they are created with chemical vapor deposition (CVD) could reduce the cost of carbon nanostructures used for for research and commercial applications, including advanced sensors and batteries.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
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.
