Rapid Prototyping: I try to buy eval boards configured as close as possible to my desired config -- with ready to go driver librraries and lots of demos showing as many pieces of the puzzle as possible. I then scour the internet looking for missing pieces andd further examples -- and active user forums.
If possible I download and test eval versions of the IDE/Compiler -- if practical.
Since I try to use C+ or Pascal -- testing is important.
Also -- I need Ethernet TCP/UDP packetizing -- so looking through those implementations is a mus as well.
If I can find the above items, the MCU and board go on the final list -- then I choose.
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
