3 hot technologies you should watch in 2001

It may be the start of a new millennium, but design engineers everywhere are still striving to solve some age-old problems: Increase power density; dissipate heat; improve the effficiency of the design process.

Fortunately, engineers are working to develop new and better solutions to these problems. In this special report on technology trends, we go behind the scenes and investigate how engineers are making the transition to high-energy permanent magnetic materials that pack more energy into less space. And we take a look at some new heat sink designs and cooling systems that are helping electronics chill out. Last but not least, we report on how CAD vendors are giving engineers the power to leverage the Internet to collaborate with colleagues.

The end result? Higher power densities. Smaller, more efficient cooling systems. Faster, more streamlined designed cycles. In short, better designs.

It doesn't get much better than that.
