Sometimes a flyer for the IC provides a better features and benefits discussion. Alternatively, the press release for the IC or an article about the IC in a technical magazine may put the features in proper perspective. Ultimately, if you are meeting a design requirement specified by a customer, that may allow you to zero in on required vs nice to have features.
Good point. For those that did not catch yesterday's session, TI Webbench provides signal conditioning for sepcifc sensors in their database and they have alternatives for the ICs in the design so you can zero in on the ocst-perfoemance tradeoff you need.
Just a comment for the WEB moderators - The audio on my computer keeps cutting out. The player button keeps acting like the "Pause" button was pushed. I can sometimes get it going just by hitting the "play" button on the audio control bar, but today was unusually bad. I only got through about half of the slides.
I did try refreshing the screen several times but nothing seems to work.
Altair has released an update of its HyperWorks computer-aided engineering simulation suite that includes new features focusing on four key areas of product design: performance optimization, lightweight design, lead-time reduction, and new technologies.
At IMTS last week, Stratasys introduced two new multi-materials PolyJet 3D printers, plus a new UV-resistant material for its FDM production 3D printers. They can be used in making jigs and fixtures, as well as prototypes and small runs of production parts.
In a line of ultra-futuristic projects, DARPA is developing a brain microchip that will help heal the bodies and minds of soldiers. A final product is far off, but preliminary chips are already being tested.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
