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.
A bold, gold, open-air coupe may not be the ticket to automotive nirvana for every consumer, but Lexus’ LF-C2 concept car certainly turned heads at the recent Los Angeles Auto Show. What’s more, it may provide a glimpse of the luxury automaker’s future.
The complexity of diesel engines means optimizing their performance requires a large amount of experimentation. Computational fluid dynamics (CFD) is a very useful and intuitive tool in this, and cold flow analysis using CFD is an ideal approach to study the flow characteristics without going into the details of chemical reactions occurring during the combustion.
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.
