A unique surface-mount duplex filter from Pulse Engineering
eliminates crossover interference by separating upstream signals from downstream
signals. The filter is designed for broadband interactive cable communication
In addition to saving board space, they are said to reduce part
counts of cable modems, set-top boxes, Internet appliances, and other high-speed
cable devices compared to other filter devices. The filters enable two-way
communication between customer premise equipment and the cable network with
minimal crossover interference between downstream broadcast frequency spectrum
and the customer-to-Internet communication band upstream.

Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
