Is Your Data Acquisition System Prepared for Big Data?

Data acquisition systems are producing more analog data than ever before. This opportunity to uncover new insights comes at the risk of spending more time searching for and analyzing multiple data sets. Without proper data management, it is easy for important results to go unnoticed, causing repeated tests due to lost or undocumented data. Learn how proper metadata documentation, custom triggering, and implementing the right analysis technique help to save only the data you need to make informed decisions.

Managing Misalignment in Linear Motion Systems

When design engineers evaluate linear bearings, they always ask about performance attributes such as speed, load capacity and lifecycle. Then they want to know the price. It’s rare, however, that they ask about the bearing’s sensitivity to misalignment. And that’s a big mistake, because misalignment represents one of the leading causes of premature linear bearing wear and failure.

Cybersecurity Challenges and Solutions

Today’s world is more interconnected than ever before. Yet, for all its advantages, increased connectivity brings increased risk. Cyberspace and its underlying infrastructure are vulnerable to those seeking to disrupt or destroy everything from medical records and robots, to industrial machinery and automobiles. More pressure will be placed on designers of these products to ensure that all available technologies are implemented to protect against attacks.

Will shape memory polymers play a prominent role in non-aerospace applications?

This week's Question: A featured Tech Brief in today's INSIDER highlighted a shape memory polymer from Langley Research Center. Designed initially for morphing spacecraft, the material changes shape when temperature shifts; the thermosetting polymer than returns to its original form once normal conditions are reached. The technology may also have applications in self-deployable structures, smart armors, intelligent medical devices, and other various morphing structures. What do you think? Will shape memory polymers play a prominent role in non-aerospace applications?

Sterility Validation 101: Ensuring a Robust Sterilization Validation Program from Start to Finish

The mapping of a successful sterilization validation program for medical devices can be challenging. From assessing the impact of your manufacturing environment, to your packaging design and choice of sterilization methods, many factors will impact how you validate your sterilization process. While parts of the program are simple, others are very complex, and it can be difficult to know where to begin and what is required.
