A sense of haptic touch

A sense of haptic touch
Where once we interacted with computers and mobile devices by means of a physical keyboard with moving keys we now most commonly use a virtual keyboard on a piece of glass. Touch and tactile feedback are becoming ever more important in terms of human-machine interfaces. By James Lewis, CEO, Redux Laboratories.

Taking an engineering idea from concept to shelf

Taking an engineering idea from concept to shelf
As an engineer I enjoy the technological challenges I encounter every day. I might be making simple product enhancements to a project, for example, adding a new feature or lowering product power. Alternatively, I may have to manage complex ideas such as a new communications protocol. By Bill Garland, Engineering Director, Acticheck.

PCB design software adds tools to speed prototyping

RS Components has unveiled DesignSparkPCB Version 7.0RS. It has added three of the most popular requests for new features to enhance ease-of-use for designers. Enhanced Part Number handling that ensures designers’ Bill of Material (BoM) is complete at any stage of the design. It has also introduced Sketch Routes that draw the approximate routing path and allow algorithms to draw the best tracks, enabling faster time-to-market in new designs, both in schematics and PCB layout.

RTOS accelerates time-to-market for industrial PCs

The Digital Factory division of Siemens has chosen Wind River's VxWorks RTOS as the foundation for its market-leading high-performance industrial PCs. The industrial PCs operate in extremely demanding environments, often directly on the plant floor. Because a standard PC operating system does not always fit the requirements of sophisticated industrial applications, Siemens required an RTOS to execute tasks requiring determinism, fast response times and safety.
