The Effective Use of High-Speed Isolated DA Systems for Rapid Transient Electrical Measurements   January 1, 2012

Lightning strikes, electrical arcs, and power-transmission switchgear testing for power transmission all involve fast, short-duration, high-voltage electrical transients that can wreak havoc on systems; acquiring data on these transients requires specialized hardware and know-how.More>>

Article
Highly Accurate Motion Sensing and Control for Industrial Applications   November 1, 2011

Until recently, inertial measurement units (IMUs) traditionally have been associated with military uses (for high-end IMUs) or consumer products (for low-end IMUs) but the marketplace has lacked an IMU that balances high performance and cost sensitivity for industrial applications. The S4E5A0A0...More>>
