RAPID prototyping, FIELD programmable gate arrays -- Evaluation, and EQUIPMENT & supplies
The article offers information on the ZU11EG, ZU17EG and ZU19EG modules as part of the Zynq UltraScale+ field-programmable gate array (FPGA) prototyping boards from Germany-based firm Pro Design Electronic GmbH.
RAPID prototyping, THREE-dimensional printing, ELECTRONICS engineers, BIOPRINTING, and STEREOLITHOGRAPHY
The article discusses the advantages of using three-dimensional (3D) printing in prototyping designs and building samples. Topics covered include how electronics engineers can benefit in 3D printing, the different categories of layer-by-layer techniques used in 3D printing and additive manufacture, and information relating to the cost of objects created using 3D printing. It also discusses other applications of 3D printing.
The article presents information on the techniques of using simulation and connect-and-go applications boards for providing rapid RF prototyping with minimum risk. It is stated that clients want fast delivery of prototype products, and at low cost and low risk. The use of connect-and-go application boards allows a high degree of functionality to be realized in a short time. By complementing this approach with simulation, lower risk higher performance systems can be developed.
The article presents information on rapid prototyping, and a seminar on it to be held on April 8, 2009. Rapid prototyping refers to the group of technologies that develop three-dimensional physical models using materials including paper, polymers and resins. Some of prototyping technologies are CADCAM milling, laser cutting, and vacuum casting for rapid tooling projects. The seminar will be held at the University of Strathclyde, in Glasgow, Scotland.

RAPID prototyping, COMPUTER software development, TECHNOLOGICAL innovations, SOFTWARE configuration management, and EMBEDDED computer systems
The article describes the role of software configuration management systems in the rapid prototyping process. Rapid prototyping is said to be a popular methodology for taking electronics concepts to production quickly. Yet the rapidity can lead to problems as the number of variants and versions explodes. Using the right software configuration management system can help capture, organise and manage array of data to reduce the prototyping time and the overall development time.
RAPID prototyping, NEW product development, COMPUTER input-output equipment, ELECTRONIC apparatus & appliances, and AVIONICS
Evaluates drivers for xPC Target rapid prototyping product to support hardware from MathWorks Inc. Key features of the product; Focus on xPC Target, which supports both commercial and military avionics databuses; Report that the xPC Target tool can be used for rapid prototyping and hardware-in-the-loop simulation and testing of aerospace control systems.
The article informs that researcher Adrian Bowyer has developed a self-replicating, low-cost rapid prototyping system at the University of Bath, England, that he plans to distribute under an open source model. He has developed the "RepRap" to make items out of plastic at the desktop from a design on a personal computer. Bowyer said about the technology that it is the junction of mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and computer science.
The article presents information on the development of a desktop rapid prototyping system by researcher Adrian Bowyer at the University of Bath, England. Bowyer said that it is a potentially powerful technology. He further said that open source licensing is a vital element in distributing this technology and the machine is itself open source so people can improve the design.

RAPID prototyping, SIMULATION methods & models, COMPUTER software, COMPUTER software development, SYSTEMS on a chip, and FIELD programmable analog arrays
The article presents the author's views on the verification of system-on-chip (SoC) designs. Various topics that he discussed includes field-programmable gate array (FPGA) prototyping, simulation of technologies for verification, importance of debugging, re-simulation of softwares and software development.
RAPID prototyping, NEW product development, THREE-dimensional printing, THREE-dimensional imaging, ELECTRONIC equipment enclosures, and ELECTRONIC apparatus & appliance design & construction
The article discusses the trend of three-dimensional (3D) printing as a cost-effective of building prototype parts for electronic prototypes. It notes 3D printing as suitable for constructing custom-made enclosures but development are yet to be done in creating control knobs, airducts, and motor mounts. It refers to a printer from EOS GmbH in Germany which cost only a quarter of a million pounds that can print for as little as 10 parts per cubic meter (p/cm3).
