A new version of the programmable analog EDA tool AnadigmDesigner2 is now free to try. Trial users are given full access to all software features including constructing circuits using pre-qualified, drag-and-drop CAMs for which the user can set parameters. The program's tools abstract the analog design process to the functional level by automating the construction of complex filters and proportional, integral, and derivative controllers. The previous CAM library also comes with three new functions: the transimpedance amplifier, the gain limiter stage, and the gain switch. To download the free trial copy, visit www.anadigm.com.
Being in an incubator can be analogous to shopping in a “big box retailer.” You can find many things you need under one roof along with moral support to sustain and move your startup to a successful launch.
Scientists at four major universities in Europe have released a joint paper describing the use of light to put active materials into motion and to control that motion, producing lifelike mechanisms that may or may not contain living organisms, but can produce useful work.
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.
