The MESA 6I25 from Mesa Electronics is a programmable industrial I/O card with a one-lane PCIE host interface. The low-profile card uses standard parallel-port pinouts and connectors for compatibility with most parallel-port-interfaced motion control/CNC breakout cards/multi-axis step motor drives, allowing a motion control performance boost while retaining a reliable, real-time PCIE interface. Unlike the parallel port that the 6I25 replaces, each I/O bit has individually programmable direction and function. Open source field-programmable gate array firmware configurations are provided for hardware step/direction generation, pulse-width modulation generation, analog servo control, absolute and incremental encoder counting, real-time remote I/O, timing, event counting, and high-speed serial communication.

Researchers from Purdue University are studying the fundamental mechanisms behind a method that uses electrical fields to enhance ceramics-sintering processing, which could aid R&D of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries and fuel cells. The research also could shed light on a phenomenon called electromigration, which can affect the performance of electronic devices.
