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.

France's Dassault Aviation and India's Reliance Group announced in late September 2016 the creation of a joint venture (JV) in India called Dassault Reliance Aerospace. With this announcement came news that the Dassault Reliance Aerospace JV will be a key player in the execution of offset obligations as a part of the 36 Rafale fighter jet purchase agreement that was signed between France and India on September 23, 2016 and is valued at around €7.87 billion, or about Rs. 59,000 crore.

One of the biggest issues in bringing forward new designs is the length of time that it takes to agree to a new specification, research and evaluate the alternative features and configurations, and then embark on a development program that will take the design to flight testing and ultimately operational service.
