Q: @Jon, But john in the applications where we do not need all 7 layers, only upto the network layer suffice to have a data transfer kind of interface over Ethernet?
A: You don't have to use the whole stack. Something like the User Datagram Protocol (UDP) might suffice. Take a look at: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User_Datagram_Protocol. You can access it at the Transport layer. Also, see: http://cache.freescale.com/files/microcontrollers/doc/app_note/AN2304.pdf.
By experimenting with the photovoltaic reaction in solar cells, researchers at MIT have made a breakthrough in energy efficiency that significantly pushes the boundaries of current commercial cells on the market.
In a world that's going green, industrial operations have a problem: Their processes involve materials that are potentially toxic, flammable, corrosive, or reactive. If improperly managed, this can precipitate dangerous health and environmental consequences.
A quick look into the merger of two powerhouse 3D printing OEMs and the new leader in rapid prototyping solutions, Stratasys. The industrial revolution is now led by 3D printing and engineers are given the opportunity to fully maximize their design capabilities, reduce their time-to-market and functionally test prototypes cheaper, faster and easier. Bruce Bradshaw, Director of Marketing in North America, will explore the large product offering and variety of materials that will help CAD designers articulate their product design with actual, physical prototypes. This broadcast will dive deep into technical information including application specific stories from real world customers and their experiences with 3D printing. 3D Printing is
