Power Trip for Mobile
phones, PDAs, digital cameras and a host of other consumer products are seeing
phenomenal growth, fueled by the constant addition of functions that create more
excitement in the marketplace. But for engineers, this increase in features
poses a big challenge: how to do more while also extending battery life.
is one of the hottest aspects of design today. It ’s important in everything
from autos to testing equipment and more. Prolonging battery life is at the
heart of power management today, and that often includes controlling heat,
controlling refresh rates, shutting down functions when they aren’t needed, and
judicious component selection. Indeed, managing power consumption entails
critical thinking about nearly every component in the system, from controllers
to displays to power converters, as well as software.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
