Symantec Corp Chief Executive Enrique Salem told the Reuters Media and Technology Summit in New York that his company was working with the U.S. military, other government agencies and universities to help develop new programs to train security professionals
As the cross-pollination of molded electronic and medical components industries continues, the products of each industry are becoming much smaller and much more complex. Toolmakers, molders, suppliers and the OEMs of medical components that incorporate electronics must all have a firm understanding of the ideas, processes, expectations and standards of both industries in a collaborative effort to produce the highest quality component-level parts at the lowest viable cost.
Binder-USA has expanded its Series 713 and 763 M12 connector line with panel mount connectors featuring screw terminations. With screw terminations it is now possible to attach wires in the field without any special tooling or soldering. This addition is ideally suited for signal and power applications requiring a solderless assembly
University of Utah engineers designed microscopic mechanical devices that withstand intense radiation and heat, so they can be used in circuits for robots and computers exposed to radiation in space, damaged nuclear power plants or nuclear attack.
As touch panel interfaces become the norm on mobile devices, laptops and tablets, Loctite Liquid Optically Clear Adhesives (LOCA) from Henkel Corporation are improving the viewing experience, increasing display durability, extending product life, reducing power consumption and enabling thinner device designs. New dual cure technologies allow full cure in shadowed areas, and offer vastly reduced shrinkage to control display distortion and eliminate mura.

The event, "RoboCity12: Robots para los ciudadanos" (Robots for the people), hosted by the Escuela Técnica Superior de Ingenieros Industriales (School of Industrial Engineering - ETSII) of the Universidad Politécnica de Madrid (UPM), gathered nearly 40 robots "made in Spain" for two days. The objective was to present the most recent advances in robotics that have been developed in the Community of Madrid, as well as the main innovations that have appeared on the national and international scenes.
Is your doctor a technophobe? Increasingly, the answer may be no. There's a stereotype that says doctors shun technology that might threaten patients' privacy and their own pocketbooks. But a new breed of physicians is texting health messages to patients, tracking disease trends on Twitter, identifying medical problems on Facebook pages and communicating with patients through email.
Freescale Semiconductor announced its support of Microsoft® Windows® 8 sensor requirements with a fully enabled 12-axis sensor development reference platform.
Molex Incorporated announces the addition of two new products in its Premo-Flex line of flat flex cable (FFC) and etched polyimide jumpers. Both products provide ultra-flexible, durable PCB connections for a variety of applications including medical devices, consumer electronics and automotive electronics.
Engineers can follow my tips to ensure their diagrams enhance their writing.
Thanks to a group of University of Houston students, the hearing impaired may soon have an easier time communicating with those who do not understand sign language. During the past semester, students in UH's engineering technology and industrial design programs teamed up to develop the concept and prototype for MyVoice, a device that reads sign language and translates its motions into audible words.
A laboratory test used to detect disease and perform biological research could be made more than 3 million times more sensitive, according to researchers who combined standard biological tools with a breakthrough in nanotechnology.

Imagine a tiny snake robot crawling through your body, helping a surgeon identify diseases and perform operations.
For U.S.-based medical device start-ups, speed to global markets is often the most pressing concern, but trying to move too fast often leads to preventable mistakes that could take the CE Marking process back to the drawing board, according to healthcare experts at BSI Group America, a leading Notified Body that helps companies comply with the essential regulatory requirements of the European Union.
NLT Technologies (NLT) Ltd., together with Renesas Electronics America, its sales and marketing channel in the Americas, today introduced two new color thin film transistor (TFT) LCD modules, expanding its robust lineup of industrial wide aspect ratio display modules.
Medical device companies deploy technologies to address unmet clinical needs, and of course, to make a profit in so doing. In some cases, the cost of new generations of medical devices increases, sometimes substantially, but that’s actually not what’s important. We have to evaluate the total cost of healthcare. In some instances, a substantially more expensive medical device can actually reduce the overall cost of healthcare.
Scientists and doctors are using the creeping metallic tools to perform surgery on hearts, prostate cancer, and other diseased organs. The snakebots carry tiny cameras, scissors and forceps, and even more advanced sensors are in the works.
Linear Technology Corporation announces the H- and MP-grade versions of the LTC3787. This high power two-phase single output synchronous step-up DC/DC controller replaces the boost diodes with high efficiency N-channel MOSFETs, eliminating the heat sink typically required in medium to high power boost converters.
NLT Technologies, together with its sales and marketing channels in the Americas and Europe, Renesas Electronics America, Inc. and Renesas Electronics Europe GmbH, today announced the successful development of three mid-size color LCD modules based on projected capacitive (PCAP) touch panel technology.
Using just her thoughts, a 58-year-old paralyzed woman instructed a robotic arm to grasp a cup of coffee and guide it to her mouth where she sipped from a straw, the first drink she has been able to serve herself in 15 years.
HiWave Technologies launched a touch feedback platform for control panels for everyday household appliances. The platform will enable manufacturers to simplify the production process by replacing button controls with flat control panels that maintain the feel of a mechanical key press, when touched.
WAGO Corporation’s MCS-MIDI 2721 and 2231 MIDI Classic Push-Button Female Connectors are said to streamline assembly via push-button and PUSH WIRE terminations. Accommodating all conductors AWG 28–12, MCS-MIDI Female Connectors carry
