5 Steps to a 15+ Year Rackmount Computer Lifecycle

Many applications, such as government, military, medical, and embedded system designs struggle with the typical computer product lifecycles. Most commercial-grade computers have a 1-2 year lifecycle before the computer is EOL (End of Life). There are also very few assurances that the rack mount computer is properly revision-controlled so you can rest assured that nothing inside the computer changes the form, fit, or function. Engineers spend a lot of time and energy determining the right specs, validating the product, getting industry certifications, and then finally getting to full production...and in many cases this spec, test, and certification process can take longer than the computer’s 1-2 year lifecycle.

Nanowire “Inks” for Paper-Based Printable Electronics

Highly conductive films make functional circuits without adding high heat.

Printed electronics must be heated to melt all the nanoparticles together into a single conductive wire, making it impossible to print circuits on inexpensive plastics or paper. A study shows that tweaking the shape of the nanoparticles in the ink could eliminate the need for heat.
