Current Attractions

Embedded Technology magazine features board-level electronics and COTS solutions for design engineers, as well as a variety of product offerings. The January issue of Embedded Technology contains a feature story on “Sensor Interface Design Demystified.” In this article, Dr. Kevin A. Shaw, director of business at Sensor Platforms Inc. (San Jose, CA) discusses, in light of the growth of MEMS (mircoelectromechanical systems), the considerations needed to be taken in sensor interface design. The designer must take into account smaller signals and application in order to develop the proper sensor, and the pit-falls involved. This article covers some of the basics of sensor interface design and gives an overview to the challenges and trade-offs of the possible approaches.

Bill Sheredy, Project Manager for SAME (Smoke Aerosol Measurement Experiment)

NASA Glenn Research Center, Cleveland, OH Bill SheredyFire is deadly and unpredictable on Earth; in an enclosed space vehicle in orbit, its presence takes on even more serious implications. To prevent the threat of smoke and fire on missions, NASA conducted the Smoke Aerosol Measurement Experiment (SAME), designed to create devices that will adequately detect combustion in a zero-gravity environment. Heading SAME is NASA researcher Bill Sheredy.

3D Navigation Devices

3Dconnexion(r), a Logitech company, San Jose, CA, has released two new 3D navigation devices, SpaceNavigator and SpaceExplorer, that provide designers with intuitive 3D computer navigation control. SpaceNavigator is an entry-level device that lets users move naturally and fluidly in 3D environments without making repetitive mouse movements or having to type multiple keyboard commands. It features six optical sensors that communicate multiple threads of navigation data to 3D applications. It is used as a companion to a mouse, in the alternate hand, and lets users simultaneously pan, zoom, and rotate 3D objects. A small, heavy steel base holds the device to the desktop and supports a controller cap that flexes in all directions. The SpaceExplorer is a mid-range device that features a key console and 15 pre-configured function keys within comfortable reach of the controller cap. It comes with 3DxSoftware, which offers support for Autodesk Design Reviewer and DWF Viewer, and Google Earth and SketchUp. For Free Info Visit http://info.hotims.com/10960-120
