Performance Motion Devices has announced a major new release of its Pro-Motion software for Windows-based environments. Pro-Motion 5.0 adds a number of key capabilities including an upgraded axis setup wizard, support for SPI-based motion amplifiers including PMD's ATLAS digital amplifier products, and support for all-in-one embedded motion cards and systems.
Sciaky, a subsidiary of Phillips Service Industries (PSI) and leading provider of additive manufacturing solutions, announced today that it has entered into a business partnership with EVOBEAM GmbH of Mainz, Germany to further expand its electron beam (EB) welding product portfolio.
When the existence of the Gömböc shape was discovered in 2007 by Hungarian scientists Gábor Domokos and Péter Várkonyi, it solved a long standing mystery. For years mathematicians had discussed, debated and tried to prove its existence using mathematical equations.
A novel curved artificial compound eye (CurvACE) has been conceived by a collaboration implying researchers from CNRS, Aix-Marseille Université, EPFL at Lausanne, Fraunhofer Institute at Jena and Université de Tuebingen. Compared to single-lens eyes, compound eyes offer lower resolution, but significantly larger fields of view, thin package, and with negligible distortion.
Superconducting sensors of PTB allow highly sensitive measurements of the nuclear magnetic resonance of thin helium-3 layers. With their SQUIDs, low-temperature specialists of the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) have made it possible for the magnetic moments of atoms of the rare isotope 3He (helium-3) to be measured with extreme sensitivity.
A fried breakfast food popular in Spain provided the inspiration for the development of doughnut-shaped droplets that may provide scientists with a new approach for studying fundamental issues in physics, mathematics and materials.
Future teams of subterranean search and rescue robots may owe their success to the lowly fire ant, a much despised insect whose painful bites and extensive networks of underground tunnels are all-too-familiar to people living in the southern United States.
Leaders of the National Science Foundation (NSF) and the Semiconductor Research Corporation (SRC), the world's leading university-research consortium for semiconductors and related technologies, today announced 18 new projects funded through a joint initiative to address research challenges in the design of failure-resistant circuits and systems.
This week on WDD's HotSpot, the development of 5G mobile communication, an iPhone attachment that emits smells, achieving a wireless transmission of 40 Gbit per second, and putting exercise motivation in front of your eyes.
The MICU 300A-S/LF inductive coupler series from Premo (Spain) transmits the PLC signals between power line and PLC data transceiver without connection of communication cable to power line. This inductive coupler has a safer installation (High insulation > 5 kV) than a capacitive coupler.
Saelig Company (Fairport, NY) has introduced the ScanaPLUS Logic Analyzer - a robust, versatile, and multi-application 9-channel logic analyzer. The ScanaPLUS' inputs can be configured to use two integral differential receivers for direct connection to balanced buses like CAN or RS485, with an additional five receivers for RS232 or LIN bus serial busses.
Opto Diode (Newbury Park, CA), a division of ITW, has introduced a highly reliable, 16-element photodiode that is ideal for UV/EUV or electron detection. The new AXUV16ELG features a 40-pin dual in-line package, and an internal quantum efficiency (QE) at 100 percent.
Lighting Science uses the HandHeld laser scanner from NVision to ensure the dimensional integrity of the extremely complicated castings it purchases and uses in its roadway light emitting diode (LED) fixtures. The HandHeld scanner is a revolutionary portable scanning device which is capable of capturing 3D geometry.
Everything had to come together just perfectly to create the killer tornado in Moore, Okla.: wind speed, moisture in the air, temperature and timing. And when they did, the awesome energy released over that city dwarfed the power of the atomic bomb that leveled Hiroshima.
The rubble of a destroyed neighborhood is strewn about a neighborhood in Moore, Okla. Many homes were stripped to their foundations Monday by a tornado which moved through the area. The tornado roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs, flattening entire neighborhoods, setting buildings on fire, and landing a direct blow on an elementary school.
