An advanced project funded by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (http://rbi.ims.ca/3844-536) aims to create ASICs using printers and organic substrates. If the work being done by Motorola, Dow, and Xerox, pays off, large area devices will be printed onto polymers, making it possible to create an active matrix LCD. The $15 million research project is targeting cost goals of $20 to $500 per square meter.
Two new technologies from Stratasys, created in partnership with Boeing, Ford, and Siemens, will bring accurate, repeatable manufacturing of very large thermoplastic end products, and much bigger composite parts, onto the factory floor for industries including automotive and aerospace.
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.
