Flex digital I/O

  • 04-Jan-2010 09:41 EST

Geotest’s user-configurable field-programmable gate array 3U PXI card features 160 digital I/O signals for specific application needs. The device employs the Altera Cyclone III FPGA that supports clock rates up to 150 MHz and features over 55,000 logic elements. The unit supports expansion card assemblies (daughter cards) that can be used to customize the interface to the unit under test, eliminating the requirement for bulky add-on boards. The device does not require proprietary design tools, as customers can use Altera’s free, Web-based Quartas II design tools. Also included in the software bundle is a virtual panel that aids with interactive design, debug, and deployment of the module.

The fusing of emerging technologies from the aerospace materials sector and biological sciences are now, for the first time, heading toward the prospect of growing parts, systems, and, ultimately, perhaps whole aircraft.
NRL scientists have demonstrated metallic spin filtering at room temperature using ferromagnet-graphene-ferromagnet thin film junction devices.
Industrial aluminum slabs are typically produced by blending small amounts of copper or manganese in a reservoir of molten aluminum that is rapidly cooled, a process known as direct-chill casting. Variations in the way these elements solidify can yield uneven results that weaken the final product.
Researchers from the U.S. Naval Research Laboratory's Optical Sciences Division and Material Science Division have detected acoustic emissions from cracks in riveted lap joints using a distributed feedback fiber laser-acoustic emission sensor.
