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.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
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.
