(http://rbi.ims.ca/4917-54). Although only 10 × 10 × 12 inches, this digitally-controlled subwoofer delivers 2000W of dynamic power with a fraction of the distortion of competitive systems. A digital accelerometer in the unit measures the movement of the subwoofer cone and a DSP controller compares this movement to the input signal at a rate of 15,800 times per second to make corrections and keep the cone's motion as close as possible to the source input. To achieve typical distortion rates well below 0.5 percent, Velodyne Acoustics' engineers chose Texas Instruments' TMS320C2000 controller for its DSP performance and highly integrated MCU-like peripherals.

Producing high-quality end-production metal parts with additive manufacturing for applications like aerospace and medical requires very tightly controlled processes and materials. New standards and guidelines for machines and processes, materials, and printed parts are underway from bodies such as ASTM International.
Engineers at the University of San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering have designed biobatteries on commercial tattoo paper, with an anode and cathode screen-printed on and modified to harvest energy from lactate in a person’s sweat.
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.
