The Complete SE Vascular Stent is a thin, flexible metal mesh tube that can be implanted in the large arteries that supply blood to the pelvis and legs (iliac arteries). It consists of two parts, the stent and the delivery system. The stent is an...
The statistics vary, but all seem to be in agreement that nearly 30 to 40% of the present load base on the grid is caused by induction motors
Lockheed Martin and Alliant Techsystems Inc said on Thursday they were teaming up to build and sell a booster rocket known as Athena, hoping to tap into a growing market for small satellites. The joint venture restructures and re-introduces for commercial sale a booster that flew seven times between 1995 and 2001 with five successful missions...
The nation's space agency paid the out-of-this-world price of $66 a person a day for bagels, cookies and juice at a conference, a new report found. The subject of the NASA conference? It was a training session for its procurement officials - the people who do the buying with taxpayer funds.
Our world is full of integrated semiconductor circuits, commonly known as microchips. Today you find them in computers, cars, mobile phones and in almost every electrical device. Technology from ESA’s XMM-Newton space telescope will make these chips much smaller, faster and cheaper.
Synopsys, a leader in software and IP for semiconductor design, verification and manufacturing, and the Belgian nanoelectronics research center, imec, announced they have entered into a collaboration to use Synopsys TCAD (Technology Computer-Aided Design) finite-element method tools for characterizing and optimizing the reliability and electrical performance of through-silicon vias (TSVs).
