Manufacturing & Prototyping

Product of the Month: October 2015

National Instruments, Austin, TX, has released the PXI-based Wireless Test System (WTS) that combines a PXI vector signal transceiver (VST) and multicore processing technologies to offer a single platform for multi-standard, multi-DUT, and multi-port testing. When used with test sequencing software, such as the TestStand Wireless Test Module, manufacturers can test multiple devices in parallel. Fullduplex RF ports and wideband RF instrumentation support current and future wireless standards such as LTE-A to 802.11ac and Bluetooth LE. The SCPI interface allows remote automation over Ethernet and smooth integration into existing manufacturing lines. Other features include up to 200-MHz instantaneous bandwidth, 65-MHz to 6-GHz frequency range, and SCPI interface via Ethernet.

Product of the Month: September 2015

CD-adapco, Melville, NY, has released STAR-CCM+® v10.04 simulation software that features a new finite element-based Solid Stress Solver, enabling both computational solid mechanics and computational fluid dynamics from a single, integrated environment. The new release also includes the Adjoint Solver for Coupled Solid Energy, enabling sensitivity analysis of solid conduction problems. This solver can be used in conjunction with the adjoint flow solver for performing sensitivity analysis and optimization for problems involving conjugate heat transfer. Reference geometry transfer through the STAR-CAD client allows the user to pass more data from their CAD package to STAR-CCM+, including transfer coordinate systems and reference planes, and these are automatically synchronized during updates.
