Cooling systems generally rely on water pumped through pipes to remove unwanted heat. Now, researchers at MIT and in Australia have found a way of enhancing heat transfer in such systems by using magnetic fields, a method that could prevent hotspots that can lead to system failures.
A new technique that allows curved surfaces to appear flat to electromagnetic waves has been developed by scientists at Queen Mary University of London. The discovery could hail a step-change in how antennas are tailored to each platform, which could be useful to a number of industries that rely on high performance antennas for reliable and efficient wireless communications.
Researchers at the USC Viterbi School of Engineering have developed a faster 3D printing process and are now using it to model and fabricate heterogeneous objects, which comprise multiple materials. Although 3D printing – or direct digital manufacturing – has the potential to revolutionize various industries...
Hey, mom, did you see that cool jump? That explosion of powder? How I squeezed between those trees? There are moments on the slopes when skiers wish all eyes were on them. But here's the next best thing: helmet cameras, which enable skiers to photograph and videotape their own descents, jumps and tracks to show off later.
PoL DC-DC converter ideal for powering the latest FPGAs and ASICs used in networking, telecommunications, and computing applicationsNovember 21, 2013 10:34 am | Murata Power Solutions Inc. | Product Releases | Comments
Murata announced the first in a series of Point-of- Load (PoL) non-isolated DC-DC converters based on the Digital Control Architecture from Powervation. The DOSA compatible OKLF 25A PoL has been designed to address the industry's growing requirement for low voltages (1.25V and less)....
Cal Test Electronics today introduced the new CP6000 Series, a four-model family of ELDITEST AC/DC oscilloscope clamp on current probes with the highest frequency range available on the market. Along with the current probes, kits include an insulated BNC cable assembly for scope connection, BNC to banana plug adapter, selected region power adapter and user manual.
You can’t drive very far without seeing a cellular tower. As more Americans curtail or ditch their landlines in favor of mobile phones, and increasingly smartphones that require high-speed internet, network operators must keep pace with the incredible amount of data traveling through their infrastructures.
LG Electronics Inc. said it is investigating a claim that some of its smart TVs send information on home viewing habits back to the company without consent. The investigation comes after Jason Huntley, a 45-year-old IT consultant in Britain, detailed in his blog how his LG smart TV logged the channels he was watching and sent the data to LG.
Jurors failed to reach a decision and will return for a third day of deliberations to determine how much Samsung Electronics owes Apple for copying key features of the iPhone and iPad. A previous jury found Samsung guilty of infringing several Apple patents in making and marketing 26 devices, and it ordered Samsung to pay $1.05 billion.
Cars that run on hydrogen and exhaust only water vapor are emerging to challenge electric vehicles as the world's transportation of the future. At auto shows on two continents Wednesday, three automakers unveiled hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to be delivered to the general public as early as next spring.
The Mars rover Curiosity has temporarily stopped science observations while NASA checks out an electrical problem. The space agency said Wednesday the voltage change was first discovered on Sunday and engineers think it might be some kind of short...
Today on Engineering Newswire, we're launching drones from tiny boats, recycling shower water, using sensors to prevent serious brain injuries, and making batteries more efficient by going viral. Typically, distance per charge is the biggest complaint and fear of those driving electric vehicles. Now, MIT researchers have started using genetically modified viruses to help the situation.
A glowing lagoon off Puerto Rico's northeast coast has gone nearly dark and biologists on Tuesday were trying to find out why. Theories range from an increase in construction runoff to inclement weather to people clearing mangroves to allow larger boats into the area.
As international negotiators discuss global efforts to confront climate change at the 19th United Nation’s Conference of Parties (COP19), a group of MIT researchers suggest that the current regional efforts may not be enough to avoid the dangerous consequences of rising emissions.
