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.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
