Creating Stretchy Conductors for Flexible Electronics

A team of engineers at Washington State University, Pullman, discovered how to stretch metal films used in flexible electronics to twice their size without breaking, which they say, could lead to dramatic improvements in flexible electronics. This may advance applications in bendable batteries, robotic skins, wearable monitoring devices and sensors, and connected fabrics.

Development of Real-Time Battery Models for HIL testing of Battery Management Systems

The explosion in the use of electronic devices, electrified vehicles and decentralized power utilities has driven demand for rechargeable batteries. This has led to a significant increase in research investment into battery technologies to address challenges including thermal stability and battery life extension. This whitepaper outlines how such challenges can be overcome in the development of a Hardware-in-the-Loop (HIL) testing system for the Battery Management Systems (BMS) used in electrical energy storage products.

How to Avoid PCB Re-spins when IC’s Change or are Obsoleted

Working with printed circuit boards (PCBs) for sophisticated military, aerospace, or medical systems can be a frustrating – and expensive – exercise, particularly when the customer requests “a simple upgrade” or modification after the boards have been made or after deployment. Thanks to Murphy’s Law, these “simple upgrades” are never as simple as they should be. Aries has developed a unique solution that can save you from having to re-spin your PCB due to IC obsolescence or package change.

What is Wiring Synthesis?

Wiring synthesis is a transformative technology for vehicle wiring design. Using principles of Model Driven Systems Engineering (MDSE), wiring synthesis automatically generates detailed vehicle wiring design data from simpler, higher level inputs. Totally different from traditional wire routing, wiring synthesis addresses key domain problems such as high frequency design change, arduous configuration management, design quality and verification, and development cost and cycle time. Supported by ten years of software development, major automotive OEMs and suppliers in Europe, USA and Asia have now applied wiring synthesis technology with great success. As electrical complexity continues to grow, wiring synthesis will become the only practical way to design automotive electrical systems.
