3D-printed flutes can produce notes that regular flutes can’t

3D Printing has been around long enough for playable 3D-printed instruments to exist, but most musicians will still opt for one made using traditional methods. That could soon change, however, as researchers have found a way to design and 3D print musical instruments capable of producing unique notes that traditional instruments can’t.

Researchers from the University of Wollongong in Australia, led by Dr Terumi Narushima, started with existing mathematical models that explain exactly how a wind instrument like a flute produces various notes. And using that know-how, they were able to go one step further to create a 3D model of a flute that was specially customized in terms of diameter, length, and hole placement so that it produced unique microtonal notes that are smaller than a semitone.

56 Gbps PAM4 Performance in FPGA Applications

Sponsored by Mouser Electronics and Samtec

If you are working on an FPGA design, the choice of a connector solution can be a crucial element in your system design. Your FPGA connector solution needs to support the highest of speeds, small form factors, and emerging architectures. In this episode of Chalk Talk, Amelia Dalton joins Matthew Burns to chat about you can get 56 Gbps PAM4 performance in your next FPGA application. We take a closer look at Samtec’s AcceleRate® HD High-Density Arrays, the details of Samtec’s Flyover Technology, and why Samtec’s complete portfolio of high-performance interconnects are a perfect fit for 56 Gbps PAM4 FPGA Applications.
