The XtraDrive uses patented NCT control technology to boost performance and stability, while its adaptive control structure automatically changes load requirements, eliminating the need for system re-tuning. Its non-linear technology gets no settling time, maximizing non-linear gain control. It has a cost-saving design that includes an integrated amplifier with an embedded 1.5-axis controller. It works as a stand-alone or can be run by an external PLC or multi-axis controller for step and directional input, analog velocity or torque control and networking capability. It is compatible with all brushless servo motor technologies, and users can choose motor, feedback device and other advantages. It is small enough to easily integrate into a new or existing servo motion system. Its options include extended I/O, Devicenet, SERCOS, MACRO and Profibus. It can be used in automated equipment in material handling, packaging, assembly, semiconductor, medical, optical imaging, telecommunications, military and defense, aviation and aerospace markets.
United Launch Alliance will fly 3D-printed flight hardeware parts on its rockets starting next year with the Atlas V. The company's Vulcan next-gen launch vehicle will have more than 100 production parts made with 3D printing. The main driver? Parts consolidation and 57% lower production costs.
The new small-form-factor EZ-BLE PRoC (Programmable Radio on Chip) module is a derivative of the existing PRoC BLE Programmable Radio-on-Chip solution. The EZ-BLE PRoC module integrates the programmability and ARM Cortex-M0 core of the PRoC BLE, two crystals, an onboard chip antenna, a metal shield, and passive components.
The engineers and inventors of the post WWII period turned their attention to advancements in electronics, communication, and entertainment. Breakthrough inventions range from LEGOs and computer gaming to the integrated circuit and Ethernet -- a range of advancements that have little in common except they changed our lives.
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.
