The problem of localized corrosion is about to get a harder punch now that engineers at the Southwest Research Institute have developed the Multielectrode Array Sensor System (MASS). MASS uses miniature electrodes to detect where localized corrosion is occurring in everyday structures such as bridges and airplanes. With earlier detection, problems caused by localized corrosion—one of the most common ways for engineering components to fail—can be fixed easily and promptly.

In a move that strengthens its 3D design business, Stratasys continued a 15-month buying spree this week by announcing its plan to acquire GrabCAD, a provider of a cloud-based collaboration environment for engineers.
Many diverse markets take advantage of semiconductor IP; so many that no one can recite the entire list without leaving off several. So why do we track all the vertical markets? They all have a unique set of requirements and value attributes differently. One major vertical market segment is automotive.
