Re: "I avoid block testing because it takes a lot of time "
I was like that until a co-worker got us started on unit testing with Visual Studio (the target is embedded but VS runs c code very well). Now I can test my code and experiment to get the code perfect and refined QUICKLY. I don't have to wait for build, load and manual test on the target. Even better, one I have the test I am confident that I can make changes and the unit test will catch things when I do something wrong. Define what the block is to do, design the test to prove it, code it. We learn faster with faster cycles on smaller functions.
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
