Love the new layout layout, Alex. It's great and easy to find what your after. The new messaging and comment features are a really and asset, especially with all the layout options (which I haven't tried yet).
I'm also glad you went back to the more conventional ad system rather than the initial spash screen.
Great job to the entire team who put this together!
I couldn't agree more. I am so happy with the look and feel of the new DesignNews.com and look forward to interacting with our engineering community on a higher level. Thank you to everyone that helped make this new site a success!
Alex, I agree with all of the posts below. The new layout is much cleaner and makes reading the content easier on the eye. I also like the new menu links which seem to streamline the navigation process of the site as well.
Truchard will be presented the award at the 2014 Golden Mousetrap Awards ceremony during the co-located events Pacific Design & Manufacturing, MD&M West, WestPack, PLASTEC West, Electronics West, ATX West, and AeroCon.
In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
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.
