Engineer (and SPCA advocate) Santiago Gutierrez was looking for a way to exercise his dog while Santiago worked long hours as an engineer at a semiconductor company. Since he couldn’t find anything, he invented something — the GoBone — and started PulsePet. This electronic “smartbone” incorporates algorithms that learn about your dog’s specific play patterns, […]
A new vibration and acceleration simulation package for printed circuit board (PCB) systems is said to accurately predict results ordinarily available only through traditional, physical HALT (highly accelerated lifecycle testing). The Mentor Graphics Xpedition product is said to augment mechanical analysis and physical testing by introducing virtual accelerated lifecycle testing much earlier in the design […]

While a lot of manufacturers have “design” tools to help you choose their parts, there are also other useful tools out there. Some, like Appcad, were just tools without trying too hard to sell you anything. Appcad is still available www.hp.woodshot.com and the current version 4.0.0 is really version 3.0.2 with the branding changed. I […]
