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.
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.

B&K Precision today announced its new 2510 Series handheld digital storage oscilloscopes (DSO). Four models make up this new line of dual-channel oscilloscopes that includes 60 MHz and 100 MHz bandwidth models in non-isolated and isolated designs.
For many years the most effective test socket contact design for BGA devices was the "pogo pin", a pin design that has been in use since the 1950s when it was invented by Everett Charles Technologies. At that time, its primary use was to test PWBs. Over the years the basic pogo design was adapted to accommodate the testing of BGA devices.
I recently went to a “Pumpkin Sling” (aka Punkin’ Chunkin’) where participants designed trebuchets to see who could get theirs to throw a pumpkin the farthest. A lot of the teams were made up of kids, who all did an incredible job building the machines. I was particularly inspired by a young man from a Cub Scout troop who very clearly outlined how the machine worked and how they had built it.
Megger now offers a rugged, handheld, battery-operated TTR tester (transformer turns ratio). The TTR20, a complement to the world-renowned hand-cranked TTR, measures turns ratio, polarity and excitation current in single-phase and three-phase transformers, current and potential transformers as well as voltage regulators.
