The design, development and delivery of affordable magnetic components is a complex process. The design development process begins once performance requirements are specified. Upon design approval, the procurement of materials for a prototype build is initiated. During this stage, specifications are not final and options remain open for cost-effective production. Specifications must be reviewed and design trade-offs evaluated to ensure that the technical requirements are economically attainable with consideration given to performance and tolerance in relation to affordable cost.
Image-based ID readers stand poised to replace laser scanners in several industries.

Download this white paper to learn how today’s most advanced ID readers have overcome the technical and economic hurdles to offer a more attractive alternative to laser scanners as well as how to choose the right image-based ID reader for your application.
Significant changes are happening to European environmental regulations. While there has been a great deal of discussion and debate over the past few years, in June 2011 the European Union issued Directive 2011/65/ EU on the restriction of the use of certain hazardous substances in electrical and electronic equipment. The new directive recasts Directive 2002/95/EC, and has come to be known in the industry as the RoHS Recast. While many of these changes seem confusing, compliance will be mandatory for any company that hopes to sell into that territory. This paper seeks to cut through the complications and lay a foundation that is easy to understand.

The emergence of ultra-large scale Systems of Systems promises efficiencies and capabilities for the creation and delivery of societal services unimaginable 10 years ago. Such systems have, as parts, not only information management systems but also cyberphysical systems such as power grids, emergency response systems, water and sewer systems, and so on. This brave new world requires ways of thinking, planning, development, delivery, deployment and operation that differ widely from those of conventional systems. Systems of systems have chaotic interactions that are too complex to fully engineer in the traditional sense, yet must offer 100% reliability, even in the presence of failures. These systems bring not only promise, but also challenge and opportunity. New ways to reason about reliability, safety, and security are needed to ensure success. With the Smarter Planet initiative, IBM is tackling the exciting possibilities and addressing the needs of this space. This white paper will help you better understand the opportu-nities and challenges related to large-scale systems of systemsby examining the evolution of systems and emerging issuesrelated to creating smarter systems.
