PCB Assembly Services – Screaming Circuits: Top five reasons to outsource during the holidays

October, 2020 has passed, as has most of November. Just six minutes ago, it was August and we were all trying to remember whether we had had a summer or not. Time and space no longer have meaning. With that being the case, it’s important to note that 2021 will not be a leap year as was 2020. For those of you born before Julius Caesar was president and messed up the calendar, this means that next year, you will…

Steven Coll – University of Missouri College of Engineering

NameSteven Coll HometownWildwood, MO Why did you choose to attend Mizzou for the IT program?I started out at Mizzou as a business major. It became apparent that I didn’t enjoy the material that much and I looked for switching and came upon the IT program, which seemed fun since I’ve always loved working with computer related things. Tell us about your educational experiences.I enjoyed all of my IT courses but I enjoyed the cybersecurity based courses the most! These include…

Powerful Web Scraping for Enterprises at Affordable Price – Scraping Robot

The biggest challenge that companies face these days is to define a process to analyze the massive amount of data collected from a multitude of users. This data can be around customer behavior, recent purchases, types of pages they visit, content shared on social media, or celebrities followed. Hence a strong foundation of data assets needs to be built in order to use the customer data effectively.  This customer information can be gathered through the practice of Web Scraping. This…

U.S. should look at how other high-income countries regulate health care costs, experts urge — ScienceDaily

Structuring negotiations between insurers and providers, standardizing fee-for-service payments and negotiating prices can lower the United States’ health care spending by slowing the rate at which healthcare prices increase, according to a Rutgers study. The study, published in the journal Health Affairs, examined how other high-income countries that use a fee-for-service model regulate health care costs. Although the United States has the highest health care prices in the world, the specific mechanisms commonly used by other countries to set and…

Minimize Write Amplification to Maximize Storage-System Lifetime

What you’ll learn: How to maximize storage life by decreasing write amplification factor (WAF). How the address-mapping choice can make a big difference to the WAF. How the appropriate flash-management firmware can assist with the above.   Flash memory is organized in a hierarchy of blocks, pages, and cells. In the older single-level-cell (SLC) devices, each cell stores only one bit of information. With the newer multi-level-cell (MLC) memory, pages are typically between 8 and 16 kB. Blocks can be…

Clinical trial reverses two biological processes associated with aging in human cells — ScienceDaily

A new study from Tel Aviv University (TAU) and the Shamir Medical Center in Israel indicates that hyperbaric oxygen treatments (HBOT) in healthy aging adults can stop the aging of blood cells and reverse the aging process. In the biological sense, the adults’ blood cells actually grow younger as the treatments progress. The researchers found that a unique protocol of treatments with high-pressure oxygen in a pressure chamber can reverse two major processes associated with aging and its illnesses: the…

New Type of Welding Adds Capabilities to Plastic Laser Welding for Medical Devices

Laser plastic welding has grown in popularity for medical applications because it reliably joins a wide range of materials, including dissimilar materials. At the same time, the process uses no vibration energy, so it is gentle enough to bond plastic parts with thin walls, geometrically complex shapes, and embedded electronics or sensors. At the same time, it can provide a Class A finish. Laser welding is ideal for making medical products that require narrow, particulate-free fluid pathways. Thus, it is…

Lee Wins Outstanding Poster Award at American Physical Society Annual Meeting

Brandon Lee is majoring in both chemical engineering and physics. Brandon Lee, a senior majoring in both chemical engineering and physics, received an Outstanding Poster Award during the virtual American Physical Society’s (APS) Division of Plasma Physics 62nd Annual Meeting in November 2020. Only five of these awards were given out to the over 100 undergraduate research posters submitted from across the country. Lee’s computational research covered the effects of temperature on some bursting characteristics of very small helium bubbles…

Survey: Four Findings Show Manufacturing’s Opinion on AI Vision Inspection

The Association for Advancing Automation and Landing AI, an industrial AI company, released survey results of 110 manufacturing companies on the topic of AI-based vision inspection solutions. Their analysis included four key findings, which are highlighted in this article. Finding 1: Manual Inspection is Still Important Inspection is crucial in manufacturing across several industry verticals, and advancements in machine vision have allowed many facilities to rely on those technologies to take on the task. According to the survey, 40% of…

What’s Best for Your Multicore Design—a Hypervisor or Multicore Framework?

What you’ll learn Pros and cons of using a hypervisor. Pros and cons of multicore frameworks.   Today’s multicore system-on-chip (SoC) hardware offers the promise of being able to pack more into your embedded project than ever before. Designers no longer have to segregate software domains into separate devices. Multicore processing clusters within the same device can lower bill-of-materials (BOM) costs and help shorten design times through tighter domain integration. However, for more complex systems, it remains the task of…
