We have a sensor that has been specified as 0.08% BSL typical (linearilty, hysteresis and repeatability combined) (0.14% BSL max.). What is the mathematical meaning of this?
This is one of those alternate terms used for best-fit straight line. In my slide 12, you'll know it is actually an eye-ball identification. The equation would be similar to slide 11 but slightly more difficult to detemine exactly. This is why suppliers often used the least squares best fit, since it has a mathematical representation. Many suppliers explain their methodology in an application note. You might want to see if this is the case for your supplier.
A new service lets engineers and orthopedic surgeons design and 3D print highly accurate, patient-specific, orthopedic medical implants made of metal -- without owning a 3D printer. Using free, downloadable software, users can import ASCII and binary .STL files, design the implant, and send an encrypted design file to a third-party manufacturer.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
