It seems that whenever I do an electronics story, naperlou, the theme is power. With so many systems moving to smaller footprints and even handheld design, low power is the ever-present design requirement.
Chuck, I have worked with the POWER Architecture versions of this product. The ability to have multiple cores of a standard processor and the QUICC communications engine on one chip is amazing. This is the trend these days, but it is no less amazing. The ARM processor brings low power to the part, as you point out. This can extend its use to battery powered units. That would be something.
With erupting concern over police brutality, law enforcement agencies are turning to body-worn cameras to collect evidence and protect police and suspects. But how do they work? And are they even really effective?
A half century ago, cars were still built by people, not robots. Even on some of the country’s longest assembly lines, human workers installed windows, doors, hoods, engines, windshields, and batteries, with no robotic aid.
DuPont's Hytrel elastomer long used in automotive applications has been used to improve the way marine mooring lines are connected to things like fish farms, oil & gas installations, buoys, and wave energy devices. The new bellow design of the Dynamic Tethers wave protection system acts like a shock absorber, reducing peak loads as much as 70%.
