Adapted from 3D Printing Technologies for Prototyping and Production, How to Leverage Additive Manufacturing to Build Better Products Unlike the blueprints, product rendering, and 3D models architects use long before building begins, product development is different. Today’s products are designed to be manufactured in thousands or hundreds of thousands, and both parts and assembled products […]
Easier, faster, cheaper — three keywords associated with meeting aggressive time-to-market demands, particularly in the evolving electronics design world. And a critical component of meeting those demands is producing a prototype that does not involve complicated processes, is rapidly manufactured, and does not cost a fortune for low-volume orders. In other words, “easier, faster, cheaper.” […]
Technologic Systems, an Arizona-based embedded computing company, has announced the introduction of its newest industrial single board computer, the TS-7970. The TS-7970 takes full advantage of the powerful features of i.MX6 NXP CPU based on the ARM Cortex A9 core. “We designed the TS-7970 to be the Swiss Army Knife of the embedded computing world. […]

Developers of portable devices now have an easier way to design in the most accurate and low power host-side battery gauges with the MAX17055 ModelGauge™ m5 from Maxim Integrated Products, Inc. Traditionally, fuel gauges required extensive characterization of each battery type, used in specific applications, for attaining good performance. This meant the customer had to perform complicated […]
The brain of an engineer with a tumor and no technology in sight to completely remove it. A terrible thing to waste and a completely unacceptable situation for engineer entrepreneur Avi Yaron. Four surgeries and an invention later, this Joy Ventures CEO and founder of more than a couple of companies — and the chairman […]
Monolithic Power Systems, Inc. announced its launch of two new high-voltage analog switch ICs, the MP4816A and MP4816, for medical ultrasound imaging applications. Our 180V, 16-channel, analog switches can pass or block transmit signals of up to ±90V and require no high-voltage supplies. Because other legacy solutions require one positive and one negative high-voltage supply, eliminating these two supplies […]

Chest-mounted electronics do a more accurate job of counting heart beats than do optical sensors on the wrist. That’s one of the conclusions to come out of a close look at this sport watch aimed at runners. Leland Teschler Executive Editor A sport watch from Garmin called the Forerunner 220 is basically a runner’s watch […]
