Thermistors by the Numbers Thermocouples measure temperatures over a broad range and at high temperatures. But when a task calls for precision measurements over a smaller, lower temperature range, somewhere from about -80 to 300C, thermistors do the trick. And because thermistors come in small packages, they exhibit fast response times.Full Story
Streamlining Product Development through Integrating Physical Test with Mechanical Design and Analysis
See first hand how to instrument your SolidWorks models with sensors, and compare the physical sensor measurements from LabVIEW with the simulated sensor values from COSMOSWorks analysis on a 3D geometry model using NI INSIGHT. View the webcast today. Click Here.
Electronics, Test & Measurement in the News:
Manufacturers Need to Develop a Green StrategyManufacturers need to develop strategies to cope with emerging environmental rules. They should keep an eye toward designing products for recycling, says a report from Gartner Inc. of Stamford, CT. Full Story House Calls Make a ComebackDigital technology and broadband communications are fast becoming channels through which the electronics industry aims to supply health care to the world, in an effective, cost-conscious manner. Full Story LVDS Technology Could Replace Fiber Optics in Automotive MultimediaA new low-voltage differential signaling (LVDS) technology could enable automakers to eliminate fiber optic cabling and connectors from high-end automotive multimedia systems. The new technology, expected to reach the automotive electronics market in January, could have a profound impact on automakers who are interested in employing the MOST (Media Oriented Systems Transport) networking standard.

Expanding Accelerometer Applications Instead of a fixed gain level, the ability to select a specific range and sensitivity makes motion sensing easier in portable products. What do you think of the potential to make measurements in both 1.5 and 6g range using a single accelerometer?Post a Reply

The 100% solar-powered airplane Solar Impulse 2 is prepping for its upcoming flight, becoming the first plane to fly around the world without using fuel. It's able to do so because of above-average performance by all of the technologies that go into it, especially materials.
With major product releases coming from big names like Sony, Microsoft, and Samsung, and big investments by companies like Facebook, 2015 could be the year that virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) finally pop. Here's take a look back at some of the technologies that got us here (for better and worse).
Good engineering designs are those that work in the real world; bad designs are those that don’t. If we agree to set our egos aside and let the real world be our guide, we can resolve nearly any disagreement.
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.
