Using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is no longer relegated to the realm of the specialist. A new class of CFD analysis software is proving to be highly effective at performing heat transfer analysis, enabling mechanical engineers to accelerate key decisions at their workstations and without the need for CFD specialists. Embedded into the MCAD environment, this intuitive process allows designers to optimize a product during the design stages reducing manufacturing costs across a wide range of mechanical designs and systems.
The counterfeiting of semiconductor components is escalating at an unprecedented rate. With increasingly sophisticated methods, counterfeit components are produced in many areas of the world and distributed globally. Additionally, unauthorized distributors render genuine parts substandard through improper handling. To make matters worse, semiconductors are being altered through a practice known as "malicious insertion" to cause damage or failure to the parts in which they are installed, or to gather intelligence.
The folks at Pentek, who wrote the book on Software Radio, are pleased to announce their recently released and expanded Software Radio Handbook. Downloaded thousands of times, the handbook has proved to be a useful technical reference for engineers.
The Symmetricom(r) QUANTUM(tm) Chip Scale Atomic Clock (SA.45s CSAC) delivers the accuracy and stability of an atomic clock to portable applications for the first time. That means that when it comes to the next era in atomic timekeeping, the clock is already running.
White Paper: Enabling 10 Gbit-Ethernet in Miniature I/O Connectors for Aerospace and Defense Applications
The CeeLok FAS-T connector, a new high-speed circular I/O, combines the ruggedness of a MIL-C-38999-style design with an insert specifically configured for 10 Gbit-Ethernet transmission. Additionally, it is a small-form-factor connector system that is field repairable and supports data rate requirements for current and next-generation electronic systems in Aerospace and Defense applications.
This application note along with its corresponding white paper 1MA207 show how to use the Rohde and Schwarz radar product portfolio to tackle test and measurement tasks in modern radar technology. Target groups are students who want to become familiar with radar issues as well as radar professionals who want to solve certain test and measurement tasks.
After its initial implementation in civil mobile telephones, the concept of a software defined radio (SDR) has now started making inroads in radios used for military applications. This document provides an introduction to SDR as used for military radios and presents the relevant T and M solutions offered by Rohde and Schwarz.
This White Paper provides a general overview of different military and commercial radar systems. It also covers some typical measurements on such systems and their components.
This paper describes and illustrates some of the many applications for which the GE Intelligent Platforms ICS-8580 rugged video processor is an ideal solution for unmanned vehicle platforms -- in the air, on the ground and in the water.
White Paper: Switched Fabrics Support High-Performance Embedded Computing for Military and Aerospace Platforms
Lessons learned from high performance computing arena can be transferred to military and aerospace applications for improved component interoperability.
