Re: Volt teardown

That's interesting about the explosion in the focus on automotive at Design West. Even before the development of hybrids and EVs, the portion of electronics in cars was expanding. Now, many cars are becoming electronics devices.

It's worth noting that when I first starting attending Design West about a dozen years ago, there was very little automotive electronics technology there. In the ensuing 12 years, the content in the average car has jumped from roughly 20% electronics to almost 40% electronic.

It's worth noting that Alex will be chairing the event and Randy Frank, author of "Understanding Smart Sensors," will be chairing one of the sessions.

This is great to put the spotlight on sensor technology.  With sensors and feedback devices getting smarter and the communications options getting so much stronger with the potential of wireless, sensors are becoming a critical building block.  Good stuff that will definitely be making an impact on new designs.

Please note that Design News is sponsoring the Sensors in Design summit, which is part of DESIGN West. We'll have a great program, including deep dives into MEMS, smart sensors, sensors in harsh environments, and a lot of great speakers.

Good, it seems that a set of new products are lining up to showcase. I hope I can found more information about Freescale Kinetic L Series MCU.

The Volt teardown will be mobbed. All kinds of engineers -- mechanical, electrical and electronic -- want to see the Volt.

Based on the lineup of articles here, this is shaping up to be a fantastic show! I am most looking forward to hearing what JB Straubel has to say about electric cars.

Manufacturers of plastic parts recognize the potential of conformal cooling to reduce molding cycle times. Problem is, conformal molds require additive manufacturing (AM), and technologies in that space are still evolving. Costs also can be high, and beyond that, many manufacturing organizations lack the knowledge and expertise needed to apply and incorporate additive technologies into their operations.
