Embedded Computing/Processing
Logic PD
Logic PD Torpedo + Wireless System on Module
The Logic PD Torpedo + Wireless (T+W) System on Module is embedded technology that encapsulates the most complex design components on a dime-sized board and offers wireless capabilities, high performance, and the lowest power consumption available. 
OEMs employ the T+W SOM to design end products easier and deliver them to market faster. This SOM offers designers a tiny, off-the-shelf wireless interface that enables remote connectivity and eliminates the local user interface. It allows developers to dramatically condense hardware space requirements and increase system performance.
Ten times smaller than the competition, the T+W SOM can provide instant on functionality by loading mission-critical drivers and peripherals in the Linux BSP. This supporting software is highly attractive to companies that develop life-critical battlefield and medical devices as it makes new technical developments possible. Customized to meet specific product requirements, this advancement enables Logic PD SOM customers to develop battery-powered devices that power on significantly faster than competing end user products, and give end users the ability to use their devices faster and for longer periods of time.

The T+W SOM is FCC certified, which saves customers significant time and money by reducing design risk and shortening the final EMC testing phase. Logic PD developed the T+W SOM based on Texas Instruments' DaVinci DM3730 video processor and WiLink 7.0 combo connectivity solution. The SOM provides PC-like speeds up to 1 GHz, long battery life, and a WL1283 wireless chipset that includes 802.11a/b/g/n, Bluetooth with a roadmap to support GPS.  Based on these technologies Logic PD developed the hardware, software, and technology integration for its embedded solution.

It's been two years since the Mac Mini's last appearance on iFixit's teardown table, but a newly revised version joins Apple's lineup this week.
More often than not, with the purchase of a sports car comes the sacrifice of any sort of utility. In other words, you can forget about a large trunk, extra seats for the kids, and more importantly driving in snowy (or inclement) weather. But what if there was a vehicle that offered the best of both worlds; great handling and practicality?
Kevin Gautier of Formlabs describes the making of a carbon fiber mold for an intake manifold, using a $3,300 3D printer, during Medical Design & Manufacturing Midwest.
Science fiction author Isaac Asimov may have the best rules for effective brainstorming and creativity. His never-before-published essay, "On Creativity," recently made it to the Web pages of MIT Technology Review.
Much has been made over the potentially dangerous flammability of lithium-ion batteries after major companies like Boeing, Sony, and Tesla have grappled with well-publicized battery fires. Researchers at Stanford University may have come up with a solution to this problem with a smart sensor for lithium-ion batteries that provides a warning if the battery is about to overheat or catch fire.
