MCP651/2/5 (MCP65X) are the world's first and only op amps to include mCal, an
on-chip calibration circuit that calibrates offset voltage at power-up using an
internal power on-reset detector, or based upon the state of an external
pin. The result is a low initial voltage
offset and a means to minimize drift over time and temperature, which are
extremely important for applications involving instrumentation and sensor
conditioning, because this enables extremely precise measurements. The on-board
calibration circuitry within the MCP65x eliminates the need for external
calibrating components and minimizes software complexity by offering a simple,
single-pin hardware control of the calibration. Relative to a
chopper-stabilized or auto-zeroed amplifier, mCal Technology can provide a more
cost-effective solution and does not have the switching noise inherent to
chopper-stabilized amplifiers. mCal Technology offers a cost-effective, easy-to-use
alternative by eliminating the need for external calibration and can provide a
more cost-effective solution relative to a self-correcting architecture.
BMW has already incorporated more than 10,000 3D-printed parts in the Rolls-Royce Phantom and intends to expand the use of 3D printing in its cars even more in the future. Meanwhile, Daimler has started using additive manufacturing for producing spare parts in Mercedes-Benz Trucks.
Researchers have been developing a number of nano- and micro-scale technologies that can be used for implantable medical technology for the treatment of disease, diagnostics, prevention, and other health-related applications.
SABIC's lightweighting polycarbonate glazing materials have appeared for the first time in a production car: the rear quarter window of Toyota's special edition 86 GRMN sports car, where they're saving 50% of its weight compared to conventional glass.
