Computer Aided Design of Suspension Mechanisms

Automobile suspension mechanisms have to date been designed using two-dimensional graphic oriented methods. Computer-aided design has allowed many two-dimensional mechanisms to be designed much more accurately. However, this has not translated to suspension mechanisms because these mechanisms are not two-dimensional but instead three-dimensional.

Cost-effective Solutions for Audio Testing

The universal popularity of mobile devices presents potentially unprecedented growth for device makers. As the user base evolves, multimedia quality features increasingly as a major determinant in market dominance. Accordingly, integration of electro-acoustic components (i.e. receiver, speaker and microphone) into home use and industrial applications is becoming more of an industry mainstay every day. With audio quality thus recognized as a key consumer consideration, providers must maximize the effectiveness of audio testing in their manufacturing process. This article discusses how high-resolution dynamic signal acquisition modules can serve as a low-cost replacement for existing sound cards while meeting all testing requirements for high-profile mobile devices.
