Indeed, my sous-vide cooking method has just gotten a little easier!

This I like. A known good thermal curve would definitely help my cooking.

Sensor Applications

I agree.  This is a very nice article.  I would like to add that in selecting thin film or wire wounds the engineer needs to factor in installation harness length .  Thin films are driven by microamps, whereas wire wounds are driven by milliamps.  Therefore, the signal to noise ratios need to be taken into account when checking your sensor accuracies.  A short run harness can use a thin film element with no issues, but if you have a long run, wire wounds are typically less sensitive to harness noise.  There are ways to compensate for this, but that adds cost, which affects the component selection process.  All in all, this covers the best points of both sensing technologies.

RTD Benefits

Nice Article,  one other big benefit of RTD sensors over thermocouples is that you can use standard copper wire between the sensor and the controller.  Thermocouples require compensated conductors all the way to the controller.

Platinum thin- film temperature sensors can be used in ovens where they have replaced electromechanical regulators. The sensors measure the temperature in the oven during the baking process. The electronic control systems allows to store different heating profiles, which the oven can use to react intelligently to the different types of food being baked. There is no longer a need to cook by trial and error method.

A Frost & Sullivan study finds that increased cyber attacks are prompting a flurry of innovative protection tools.
Devices and interconnected systems are finding a foothold not only in our homes but in mainstream organizations. Here are three tips to mitigate the risk.
What makes this movie stand out from the typical high school sports story is that the teenagers are undocumented immigrants, and the big game is a NASA-sponsored marine robotics competition. Like many other Hollywood movies, however, Spare Parts only tells part of the story. What the film shows -- and doesn’t show -- raises important issues affecting STEM education in the US.
Instead of sifting through huge amounts of technical data looking for answers to assembly problems, engineers can now benefit from 3M's new initiative -- 3M Assembly Solutions. The company has organized its wealth of adhesive and tape solutions into six typical application areas, making it easier to find the best products to solve their real-world assembly and bonding problems.
Load dump occurs when a discharged battery is disconnected while the alternator is generating current and other loads remain on the alternator circuit. If left alone, the electrical spikes and transients will be transmitted along the power line, leading to malfunctions in individual electronics/sensors or permanent damage to the vehicle’s electronic system. Bottom line: An uncontrolled load dump threatens the overall safety and reliability of the vehicle.
