Alix Paultre of ECN magazine pages through "Core Engineering Concepts for Students and Professionals", a very comprehensive textbook and reference for engineers at every level.
In this supersized lecture length episode, Dave foolishly attempts to explain how to design an example product (the uCurrent) from start to finish.
The pCubee is a handheld cubic display system made with five flat-panel screens that uses perspective-corrected rendering and real-time physics simulation to create compelling visualization and interaction techniques for 3D content.
A new technique, designed with the potential to treat brain cancers, is under study at Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Chicago Medical Center. The micron-sized magnetic materials, with vortex-like arrangements of spins, were successfully interfaced with Glioblastoma...
This video shows some applications and benefits of the OLED SmartSwitch which is a combination of a switch and a display.
General Motors has developed a working next-generation heads-up display that turns an ordinary windshield into an augmented reality information dashboard.
Dave does a teardown of the Princeton Tec EOS headlamp and mods it with a new Cree XPG LED.
This is a demo from this year's TechFest of a Physiological Sensing Interface.
ECN's Editor-in-Chief Alix Paultre discusses the latest LED-driven LCD technology, with an overview of other display tech including Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS), Digital Light Processing (DLP), and Vacuum Flourescent Display (VFD).
Jeff Sherman of TI demonstrated their latest packaging tech - DualCool, which incorporates extra heat-transfer structures in a power MOSFET to improve performance.
Raytheon has been chosen by the U.S. Air Force to develop a new element of the Global Positioning System (GPS), called the Advanced Control Segment (OCX), which will improve the accuracy of information from GPS satellites.
John Lambert of International Rectifier demonstrates the company's new GaN-based power IC technology at APEC 2010. The flip-chip IP2010 and IP2011 combine driver and a GaN switch in a single device.
Here is a demonstration of a DrMOS integrated FET plus Driver multi-chip power stage module from Fairchild. The device is designed for multiple synchronous Buck converter applications.
Here is a demo of the Vicor Factorized Power Architecture at APEC 2010 .
