STEM Education: Enhance Student Learning with Simulation Apps

If you want to learn about using simulation apps to improve student learning, then tune into this webinar with Ivana Milanovic from the University of Hartford.  Simulation-based design and inquiry-based learning can be embedded in any science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) course to enhance the delivery of the material and help balance the time devoted to theory, problem solving, and skill development. Apps involve creating a simplified interface that contains the full efficacy of the underlying model without exposing the end user to its complexity. In this webinar, you will see how STEM courses can be modified to contain scaffolded and contextualized simulations with app building. These simulation apps help develop students’ technical competency and deeper understanding of physical concepts by solving realistic technological problems.

Surviving Electronic Component Shortages

We’re in a major component shortage. The electronics industry is currently experiencing the most extreme component scarcity in over a decade. Lead times on passive components have drastically increased as a result, with some suppliers quoting as far out as mid-next year. The shortage and its impact is so widespread that the Electronic Components Supply Network (ECSN) is urging electronics buyers to “review their outlook on lead times for components amid surging global demand and reports of allocation risks on certain products.” This is a long-term sourcing challenge that industry analysts see lasting beyond the new year. Many organizations have responded to the supply deficit by double- and triple-ordering components, but this has only aggravated the problem further. Suppliers are starting to allocate their inventory, resulting in massive lead times and increased prices. Find out how electronics manufacturers are mitigating risks and planning ahead for component shortages.

Quality Control of Diamond Like Carbon Coating Layers

DLC-coatings (DLC - Diamond-Like-Carbon) have gained significant importance due to a steadily rising number of applications. For instance, DLC-coatings are applied on tooling components, parts of motorcycle engines, hard-disk
read heads, medical implants and high precision watches.The main desirable features are hardness, wear resistance
and low friction. The properties of the coating can be determined and altered to some extent by changing parameters
in the deposition process.One major property is the thickness of the DLC-layer. Its geometry and profile on technical components like toothed wheels or injection nozzles can be rather complicated. DLC coatings are generally deposited from a gas phase. To obtain the desired properties the thickness of the DLC
layer has to be monitored very closely.

Reverse Engineering of Materials and Polymers Using Infrared and Raman Microscopy

Product development in the industrial world can be a long and expensive process. In a competitive market, the window of opportunity for significant revenue can close before a new competitive product could even exit the development cycle. The obvious solution to keeping up in a competitive market is to acquire the product in question, disassemble it, and analyze it. This reverse engineering process can greatly expedite the immediate introduction of competitive products into the marketplace. There are many tools for determining the physical properties of materials that will not be discussed here. The chemical properties can be readily determined by utilizing analytical tools such as gas phase chromatography, atomic absorption spectroscopy and many others. Molecular spectroscopy (infrared and Raman) is among the most powerful tools in the reserve engineering process.

Optimizing Medical Device Development with Full Regulatory Compliance

When developing highly complex and regulated product with an increasingly global workforce and widespread network of contractors and suppliers, quality is often sacrificed in the name of profitability, or time to market – sometimes with disastrous results. There is a need to eliminate organizational boundaries in order to accelerate the release of new products to market. Unfortunately, companies often address product quality too late, using disjointed processes and technologies with inadequate cross-functional communication.

Integrating a quality lifecycle management solution within an enterprise business platform provides a formalized, systematic approach for managing all aspects of product quality, reliability, and risk. It’s time to rethink your product development approach and look for a business platform that supports the full total product lifecycle from ideation through manufacturing and post-market and shares quality information across the enterprise.

How Electronics Brands Can Optimize Display Compliance

While a large percentage of shopping has moved online, electronics are still overwhelmingly purchased in stores. Features such as touch screens, high-resolution displays, and surround sound speakers cannot be adequately assessed through online pictures or video advertisements. Due to these factors and the high price points of electronics, brands must pay special attention to how their products are marketed and displayed in retail stores in order to achieve sales goals and reduce the possibility of losing sales to competitors.
