I agree. Also, PACs along with VFDs make for a compact Motion Control solution for industrial processing and assembly systems as well.

Interesting points regarding VFDs and industrial controllers as whole. Agree with ABB being an industry leader in the Industrial Controls space as well.

The trends you mentioned in your article are definitely the focus of most manufacturing facilities regarding motors and drives. The most popular trends industrial manufacturers are interested in consist of VFDs and decentralized controls. I personally like the idea of having the controller packaged with the motor or drive because of ease of setup, troubleshooting, and quick performance status indicators. ABB has always been an innovator within the industrial controls space and by the look of their new motor and drive product line will definitely be a leader in the years to come. Great article Al!

Researchers working with additive manufacturing have said multimaterial techniques will allow industry “to fabricate materials with combinations of density, strength, and thermal expansion that do not exist [yet].”
A decade from now, firmware development may be nothing more than software integration, grabbing vendor and third-party components, and meshing their APIs together to form a final system.
The term "multiphysics" is used to describe the simulation of multiple types of physics and their influence on one another -- for example, the investigation of the behavior of a chemical in liquid form will involve both chemistry and fluid dynamics.
Tune in to the Continuing Education Center next week for a comprehensive course in using the Raspberry Pi development platform.
Researchers in Australia think new types of plastic materials instead of silicon may be the key to building more efficient solar cells.
