Coming Soon - “Lotus” Wet Chemistry – Nano-Textured Coating for Mitigating Dust Accumulation and Repelling Liquids

NASA Goddard Space Flight Center has developed a unique formulation of a Lotus leaf-like nano-textured dust mitigation coating, with hydrophobic properties. The Lotus Coating is a lightweight passive coating that also has super-hydrophobic properties and can prevent a variety of particles, liquids, or ice from sticking to the coated surface. The coating’s unique nano-textured surface and overcoat reduces surface energy and contact surface area, giving the coating anti-contamination and self-cleaning properties that minimize dust, liquid, and ice accumulation on its surface, similar to a leaf on the Lotus plant.

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

It can get ugly out there; you have your expensive military, aerospace, or medical system finalized and deployed and then, someone wants or requires an “upgrade”. Oftentimes it’s simple; however other times the complexity involved can make “Mr. Murphy” blush.

Coming Soon - Conductive, Convective and Radiative Heat Transfer

Understanding heat transfer is central to verifying and optimizing products and system designs. Thermal characteristics and mechanical performance must be considered in the development of products such as reactors and electronic devices. Changes in a temperature field can occur due to conduction, convection, and radiation. But how important is each mode of heat transfer? What is needed for an accurate simulation? These are some of the questions we will address, in addition to showing a live demo of modeling heat transfer in COMSOL Multiphysics®. The webinar will conclude with a Q&A session.

Coming Soon - ZMDI Motor Control Technology – Control and Design for Automotive Exterior Mirror Systems

Demand is expanding for intelligent actuator/motor controllers in industrial, medical, and automotive applications. Often a small form factor and minimal external components are also required. In response, actuator/motor controller ICs with higher levels of built-in functionality, user-configurability, and integrated current and temperature sensing are needed. Many applications, for example automotive, also require safety and diagnostic features, minimized power consumption, and standard communication interfaces.

Coming Soon - Designing Antenna and Electronic Systems for Space and Airborne Applications

Across all industry sectors electronic systems such as antennas and sensors are becoming ubiquitous in support of wireless communication, sensing and power transfer. These are examples of the practical realization of the "Internet of Things". In the aerospace sector, such technologies are playing an increasingly important role in advanced technologies. For example, highly instrumented and connected aircraft are supporting condition based maintenance and health monitoring techniques. Remotely piloted systems are becoming more autonomous and delivering increasing amounts of intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance data to support the warfighter. At the same time, the industry is expected to deliver these more advanced capabilities at lower cost, in a smaller and lighter footprint and with increased robustness, reliability and resilience.
