Designed for portable applications in portable phones, digital still cameras, and PDAs, the STw4141 DC/DC converter chip allows two different output voltages to be generated using a single external coil. By doing so, the STw4141 allows the bill of materials for a product to be cut by up to 40 percent, while reducing printed circuit board size up to 30 percent. It also allows a power supply solution to be implemented in only 56 mm2 of printed circuit board space, compared to 80 mm2 for the best previous approaches.

Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
