Accelerometer Combines High-Bandwidth, Three-Axis Performance
8/4/2014

Housed in a 3 x 3 mm package, Freescale's FXLN83xxQ accelerometer could hit a sweet spot for designers of industrial products, particularly those associated with the Internet of Things.  (Source: Freescale Semiconductor, Inc.)

Z axis limitation

NO RATINGS
This seems like a great industrial product, until you see on the data sheet that the Z axis is limited to 600 Hz. You will need to mount two devices to truely get 3 axis, 2700 Hz performance.

changes coming in industrial sensors and control

NO RATINGS
Chuck, this type of advance can really change the way industrial sensors are designed.  In the past one might have used some sort of shaft encoder, while now other types of sensors might be of interest. 

As for the IoT, this is how it all starts.  Lots of digital data which is easily transmitted and saved.  Then you have to analyze it.

Researchers have been working on a number of alternative chemistries to lithium-ion for next-gen batteries, silicon-air among them. However, while the technology has been viewed as promising and cost-effective, to date researchers haven’t managed to develop a battery of this chemistry with a viable running time -- until now.
Norway-based additive manufacturing company Norsk Titanium is building what it says is the first industrial-scale 3D printing plant in the world for making aerospace-grade metal components. The New York state plant will produce 400 metric tons each year of aerospace-grade, structural titanium parts.
Researchers have simplified the fabrication of the geometric requirements for fluid motion in microrobots for in vivo medical applications.
The National Aeronautics and Space Administration’s recently announced plan to put an electric airplane in the air by 2018 is forward-looking, but hardly unique.
