Survival of the Fittest - the Process Control Imperative

In tough times, manufacturers focus on reducing their operating costs, but may not be able to afford to spend their way out by buying more productive machinery. With that pathway closed, what are the opportunities for radically reducing costs without replacing existing machines? This paper explores Productive Process Pyramid™ and the four areas where substantial savings can be found if firms are prepared to change the way they control their machining processes.

Remote Tuner Architecture Reduces Wiring Weight and Cost While Improving Noise Immunity

Wiring four antennas to the radio head unit in a traditional radio architecture requires up to 60 feet of copper cables. A new architecture detaches the tuners from the radio head unit, placing them near the antennas and serializing their outputs. This reduces the length of the wiring by roughly a factor of four. The overall effect is significantly lower weight and cost, improved noise immunity, reduced heat generation, and less complexity in the radio head unit.

Fast-Tracking Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) and Autonomous Vehicles Development with Simulation

ADAS and autonomous vehicles will soon be transforming our world. Due to the complexity of this immense engineering challenge, manufacturers now realize producing a reliable autonomous vehicle requires millions of miles of road testing—as onboard computers must be trained, not programmed. A seemingly impossible task.

Control System Basics with Jon Titus

Writer and editor Jon Titus (often credited as the inventor of the first personal computer) explores the basic elements on a control system. Beginning with relays followed by sink versus source control, Titus also explores PNP and NPN logic, open collectors and isolation. With a personable Q&A format, this five-part guide demystifies some of the common questions and confusions surrounding control systems.
