@GStringham – Concerning H/W vs S/W, I once did a H/W design of a capacitive keyboard many years ago. Capacitive keyboards were a bit novel at the time. The board worked fine after I fully tested it with my own test firmware. I handed it over to the S/W group and it worked fine for them. After the S/W folks were done with it, it was handed over to the folks that do the exhaustive testing before final release. It was about this time I had submitted my resignation because I had accepted a job offer at another company. During my 2-week notice time, I was presented with a problem with my design. The keyboard didn't work reliably when more than key was pressed at one time. It wasn't written into the requirements, so the capability wasn't designed in. Neither the S/W folks nor I tested this because nobody knew until the H/W was done and the drivers were written. I never had an opportunity to complete the correction of the flaw before I was gone. :.(
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
