Welcome Charles, TI and Analoge Devices seem to be the leaders in developing Sensor on the Chip technology. The Mining Industry would definitely benefit from this gas detection system technology in monitoring the air quality of underground mines.
Thanks, Mrdon. The applications for this technology appear to be immense. Virtually every commercial building and even most homes have some kind of gas detection system. I think TI is on the right track.
Hi Charles, Based on the TI link you provided for additonal information, they provide a wealth of hardware, software, and reference design tools for the engineer to get hands-on knowledge about their product. I was really impress TI has built a model to be simulated in Webench for a first hand investigation of their AFE system without plopping down dollars for physical hardware. Nice article!
As energy efficiency becomes more and more a concern for makers of electronics devices, researchers are coming up with new ways to harvest energy from sound vibration, footsteps, and even electromagnetic fields in the air.
The government wants to study your brain, and DARPA wants to use similar information to give robots true autonomy beyond any artificial intelligence developed to date. Sound like science fiction? It's not.
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
