Most of us spend 40+ hours a week in them, but how about checking out the Internet for the Cubicle (www.thecubicle.com )? Created by engineers and techies, theCubicle considers itself a web-based discovery for the global electronics engineering community. It has a continuously updated repository of component information, reference designs, white papers, and some pretty nifty design discovery tools. Currently available is CircuitNet™which has a drawing board, a design audit function, and a side-by-side comparison of vendor products, as well as access to distributors, RFPs, and online forms for access to advanced product information. Recently added to the site is a series of articles on bringing a technology product to market including "Building a business to help engineers," and "Product Development." And for your enjoyment the site features a series of weekly cartoons called "The Capers," pitting engineers against marketing and finance types. There are also several different sections of engineering jokes.
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
