Yokogawa adds 200Msample/s ScopeCorder and puts all its test software under one roof

Yokogawa has introduced a ScopeCorder (oscilloscope plus data recorder) that works up to 200Msample/s and 8Gsamples, as well as a single test software front-end that will operate and inter-operate all of its ScopeCorders, power analysers and oscilloscopes. The hand-carriable DL950 is built on the existing DL850E, but handles more data at faster speeds over longer ...

Glasgow researchers develop new plate-lattice metamaterial

A team led by University of Glasgow engineers have developed a new plate-lattice cellular metamaterial capable of impressive resistance to impacts. Plate-lattice metamaterials are cubic structures made from intersecting layers of plates that exhibit unusually high stiffness and strength, despite featuring a significant amount of space between the plates. Those spaces make plate-lattices unusually lightweight. ...
