JVC RX-D201S Audio/Video Control Receiver (http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-541). JVC's RX-D201S receiver is a 7.1 channel × 100W class D audio receiver with digital features that include a USB-PC Link, Center Channel Alignment, Virtual Surround Back, Quick Speaker Setup, and more. Class D amplifiers offer very high efficiency allowing smaller circuit size and form factor, and less weight. JVC's class D audio amplifier uses International Rectifier's IRS20124S high voltage IC and IRFB4212 power MOSFETs. Specifically tuned for Class D audio applications, both products maximize system efficiency. For more information on International Rectifier Class D audio products, go to http://rbi.ims.ca/4911-542.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
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.
