@Michael: re JTAG interface chipset; yes, of course the FTDI USB chipset. I believe I have seen this in the TinCan and Flyswatter tools on the web. I'm looking to piece together an Eclipse-based (nominally ARM) based development platform with JTAG debugging, out of my own pocket. I'm a old UNIX kernel person from my first job at Bell Labs in the late 70's, then transitioned to embedded stuff in the 80's and early 90's. Doing "system engineering" work now but striving to get back to my first love doing embedded and looking to dig into embedded Linux. Thanks for the great overview course.
Lantronix Inc. has expanded its line of controllers for sensor networks with the release of a rugged controller that improves management of automation systems used in a number of industries, including manufacturing, oil and gas, and chemicals.
Inspired by the hooks a parasitic worm uses to penetrate its host's intestines, the Karp Lab has invented a flexible adhesive patch covered with microneedles that adheres well to wet, soft tissues, but doesn't cause damage when removed.
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
