Latest diagnostic tools offer edge in race against disease
Seal Beach, CA--A patient sits quietly on the edge of an examination table watching as her doctor takes a bio-scan with a hand-held tricorder. The diagnosis? Vulcan flu, strange for a human. Strictly science fiction-Star Trek technology, to be exact-the tricorder represents the ultimate medical diagnostic and monitoring tool: It's non-invasive, speedy, accurate, and impossibly thorough.
Back on present-day Earth, medical-device engineers strive for these same qualities when creating diagnosti
Researchers at the University of Maryland have achieved a first in lithium-ion battery science: the development of a successful lithium-based battery using one material for all three core components of a battery -- anode, cathode, and electrolyte.
The online Bar Steel Fatigue Database for automotive design engineers has been updated for the fifth time and now contains 134 iterations, or grade/process combinations. It provides better predictability for designing parts with long-term reliability and durability.
FPGAs use programmable fabric to create custom logic, but this flexibility comes at a cost -- usually around 10 times more silicon real estate and 10 times the power dissipation. Can we really claim any FPGA is low power?
