Data Device Corp.'sdataSIMS Avionics Data Bus Test and
Analysis Software provides support for its line of AceXtreme data bus cards. The
AceXtreme BU-67X Series cards offer advanced MIL-STD-1553 functionality,
including BC or Multi-RT, concurrent monitor per channel, and common API for
test and embedded applications.
dataSIMS is a powerful software analysis tool
that allows users to create a complete environment of simulation, acquisition,
display, and storage of real-time data for MIL-STD-1553 and ARNIC 429 buses, as
well as Ethernet, synchro, and any other user I/O. Advanced functions include
engineering unit conversion, data filtering and triggering, synchronized
recording, advanced playback for analysis and open architecture for user
dataSIMS accelerates development and
deployment, eliminates cost of learning and maintaining separate software
programs, offers user definable graphical displays, and supports MIL-STD-1553,
ARINC 429 and other protocols.
offers a free 60-day, fully functional trial version of dataSIMS so users can experience how dataSIMS can be used to simulate, visualize, integrate and analyze
a complete data bus environment.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
