Overview: Smart energy starts before the grid, and continues all the way down to the consumer. Being able to pull just what’s needed from the grid, and maybe even return some energy, is the goal. To achieve that goal, designers are tasked with developing more energy efficient and smarter end products. Design News Brand Director Richard Nass hosts Bob Heile, Ph.D, Chairman and CEO, ZigBee Alliance, to discuss the techniques required to design these innovative products on this radio show.

At the Design News webinar on June 27, learn all about aluminum extrusion: designing the right shape so it costs the least, is simplest to manufacture, and best fits the application's structural requirements.
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 radio show will show what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
