Integrated servomotor

Animatics’ Class 5 SmartMotorT features an internal brushless motor, encoder, controller, and amplifier, as well as Combitronic technology that enables linking of more than 100 SmartMotor servos over CAN. The system can read from, write to, and control any other SmartMotor to ensure high dependability and no data collision or loss. One program can be written in one motor to control all, or each motor can have its own program, sharing resources with every other, for one giant multitasking, multiprocessing system. Even without the Combitronic option, communication speeds are up to 115.2 kbaud in both the RS-232 and RS-485 ports. Enhancements to the previous version include the addition of isolated, 24-V I/O; advanced gearing, camming, and contouring functions; and increased program execution speeds.

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.
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.
Improvements to Airbus A320 passenger air nozzles could potentially contribute to program-wide benefits.
NASA has selected proposals for the creation of two multi-disciplinary, university-led Space Technology Research Institutes (STRIs) that will focus on the development of technologies critical to extending human presence deeper into our solar system. The new STRIs will bring together researchers from various disciplines and organizations to collaborate on the advancement of cutting-edge technologies in bio-manufacturing and space infrastructure.
