Called a “new generation” of NOx reduction technology, ASDS (Ammonia Storage and Delivery System) is designed ultimately to replace conventional tanks containing a diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) or AdBlue with lighter, high-efficiency cartridges containing a solid material called AdAmmine.
During almost 34 years with Ricardo, Prof. Neville Jackson has been—and continues to be—responsible for a wide range of new technologies and innovations. Now he has added SAE Fellow to his many achievements.
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.
As ground vehicles employ more electronic sensing, control and communication systems, design engineers are increasingly utilizing more commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) modules. Though COTS slashes development time and costs, it’s still difficult for many military users to find COTS boards that meet their low-volume demands for ruggedization and redundancy.
Alligator Technologies (Costa Mesa, CA) offers x10000 amplifier gain enhancement for the company’s USB controlled USBPIA-S1 single channel programmable signal conditioning instrumentation amplifier and the USBPGF-S1 instrumentation amplifier with low pass filter.
Lucid Motors' Director, Powertrain, CAE Crash & Safety, discusses the not-really-so-different aspects of EV and internal-combustion engineering, why a powertrain’s still just a powertrain and why he ponied up his own money for a deposit on Lucid’s Air electric luxury sedan.
