Mil-914 surface-mount chip resistor networks are available with standard resistance values from 10(OMEGA) to 2.2M(OMEGA) and standard tolerances of 10%, 5%, 2%, and 1%. Network termination consists of a high-adhesion conductive base layer covered by a nickel barrier to prevent solder joint degradation.

VX Vision®Version 4 includes capabilities for image embossing, intelligent hole making, support for CAM-fixture assemblies, and multiple incremental surfacing, sheet metal, and mold design enhancements. For image embossing, an image file such as a JPEG or GIF is used as input and applied on the surface of a modeled product. As part of the model, the embossed image is automatically incorporated into mold design and machining operations.
